Unique story. Creative, with skillful blend of some real world harsh/violent history and fictional extraterrestrial historical exploration, discovery and intriguing Earthling + "ET" interaction. Our Creator is thoughtfully included as a recurring theme. Looking forward to the sequel.

William Boardman weaves incidents of World War II, a futuristic civilization, and medicine together to create a uniquely interesting story. This is a science fiction tale of how a young woman matures in her faith as she experiences the harrowing persecution of the Third Reich while being observed from afar by an alien doctor. Reading this book strengthened my faith in God, knowing He is always there no matter where my journey in life is taking me.

I was intrigued from the start and could not put it down. Two civilizations, centuries apart, are thrust together when a life- threatening event changes their mission purpose of data collection to engaging with Earth’s inhabitants. Boardman has written a fast-moving science fiction novel with intelligent characters; drama; technical detail; enduring faith and a hope of more to come.

A remarkably enjoyable book--a book for everyone. For me, as I read it through, it became almost real--exciting at times--at other times quite amusing. The science was well researched and added significantly to the realism.

A very entertaining and enjoyable read! Such a unique perspective on the whole universe God created. The author's ability to create believable characters and situations are astounding, and his attention to certain details make the story more understandable. Really an easy read and hard to put down.

This is a charming story about a young Jewish lady and her life in Nazi territory and beyond. And it's a story about aliens. A combination unlike any I've read before. A big plus for me is it is a clean story, no profanity or explicit sexual details. Oh, and did I mention it is a story about Christians? The first part of the book is a little difficult to get through and it is all history of the alien people, but once you get through that part, it is a pleasant and interesting read. I am certainly looking forward to the next book.
