Bringing back this 5th century warrior to adjust to the 21st century should be enough to keep Diana occupied, but she discovers she has another equally challenging situation to deal with in the form of the very striking and handsome Gawain, a man who seems to be stalking her. What she doesn’t know is that Gawain too hails from the time when Merlin ruled with magic and Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table protected the people and their lands. 

Diana must decide who to trust, who to send back and figure out why all of this is so familiar to her. The choices she makes will impact not only her life, but the entirety of civilization as she knows it.

While Replay and The Mists of Time are two very different books, both authors seem to be posing the same question: Are you willing to change the lives of everyone you know and the outcome of history just to change your own life? It’s a question I pose to you.

Ooh Maria, two very different and equally enthralling looking reads. I love Susan and this is actually on my list, but I'm unfamiliar with Ken Grimwood and will have to check him out.

And now on to your question. In most time travel books there are serious rules about not messing with things that could change the present, future past etc depending on where the traveler is. I'll go with my cop-out answer, I don't know or how about this one, it depends. I know you're disappointed in me, but this is a morally challenging question and today well I just feel too human to pick the right answer.

What would you do?
