The Map of Time: A Novel (Google eBook)

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, Jun 28, 2011 - Fiction - 624 pages
16 Reviews
Characters real and imaginary come vividly to life in this whimsical triple play of intertwined plots, in which a skeptical H. G.

Félix J. Palma explores this provocative question, weaving a historical fantasy as imaginative as it is exciting—a story full of love and adventure that transports readers from a haunting setting in Victorian London to a magical reality where centuries collide and a writer’s mind seems to pull at all the strings.
