    "The story was ok. It did not seem like something that should have won awards. I did not see what was so special about it."

    "It seems like it will be a sappy romance novel, but this book is a lot more. The story has a definite science fiction element, and the time travel brings historical fiction in as well. It's different and touching, and I would highly recommend it to fans of romantic historical fiction looking for something a little different."

    "his book is an epic romance, a war novel, and a story about turning a small desolate ghost town in the Australian outback into a thriving city. Warning: You may be up all night finishing it! The heroine is an ordinary young woman who assumes leadership of a group of women and children captured in Malaya by the Japanese during WWII. This part of the story is actually based on true events that happened (to Carry Geysel in Sumatra). This is my favorite Shute book (although there are many great ones), and Modern Library has ranked it 17th on The Reader's List of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th Century. I've reread this book several times, each time with great pleasure."
