Summary

Review Excerpts

"Todd McClaren gives a soft-spoken, carefully navigated reading that allows the author's beautiful descriptions to woo the listener with their simplicity." ---AudioFile

"The journey through the seedier side of New York's Gilded Age...is an arresting contrast to classic time-travel themes. This is a real crowd-pleaser." ---Publishers Weekly

"Flaming's debut channels the magical realism of Mark Helprin's Winter's Tale, the historical New York settings of E. L. Doctorow, and the time travel romance of Jack Finney's Time and Again." ---Library Journal

"A marvelous fable about the worlds beneath our feet and the conspiracies that turn our heads." ---Kirkus Starred Review

"The Kingdom of Ohio is a world amongst many worlds and each one is fairly beguiling." ---Chicago Sun Times

Summary

After discovering an old photograph, an elderly antiques dealer living in present-day Los Angeles is forced to revisit the history he has struggled to deny. The photograph depicts a man and a woman. The man is Peter Force, a young frontier adventurer who comes to New York City in 1901 and quickly lands a job digging the first subway tunnels beneath the metropolis. The woman is Cheri-Anne Toledo, a beautiful mathematical prodigy whose memories appear to come from another world. They meet seemingly by chance, and Peter initially dismisses her as crazy. But as they are drawn into a tangle of overlapping intrigues, Peter must reexamine Cheri-Anne's fantastic story. Could it be that she is telling the truth and that she has stumbled onto the most dangerous secret imaginable: the key to traveling through time?

Set against the mazelike streets of New York at the dawn of the mechanical age, Peter and Cheri-Anne find themselves wrestling with the nature of history, technology, and the unfolding of time itself.
