Time After Time by Lisa Grunwald  

If you love time travel romances, you need to read this gem ASAP. It’s a beautiful and charming story of a young woman killed in a train crash at Grand Central Station in New York City, who reappears in the station every year on the anniversary of her death. Joe, a train track lever operator, falls in love with Nora, and figures out a way to help her stay. Although she is actually 3 years older than him, when they first meet, she seems ten years younger, forever frozen at the age at which she died. They strive to build a life together, but as they figure out her boundaries, America enters WWII and the complications of life are magnified. As Joe ages, but Nora does not, can they find a way to make things work?

 

 


One of the most interesting facets of the story is the importance of “Manhattanhenge”, the phenomenon when the sun lines up perfectly between buildings twice a year in Manhattan (above). I witnessed a similar event in San Francisco when I was in grad school, and it is really something to see (below, although not taken by me). I hear there are some cement structures north of us on the edge of the Great Salt Lake, placed to capture that special light here too, but I haven’t yet been to see it. Have you witnessed an event like this near where you live?
