The Heavens

The Heavens

Blurb

New York, 2000. Kate and Ben meet at a party and fall instantly, irrevocably in love. Around them, the city glows. It is the first year without a war anywhere. A woman is president, and an air of camaraderie permeates the streets of Manhattan. Kate falls asleep, knowing she is loved.

London, 1593. Kate wakes as Emilia - the mistress of a nobleman - and finds the plague at her door. Afflicted by premonitions of a burnt and lifeless city, she sets out to save the world. Each decision she makes will change her life with Ben for ever.

A story of love and alternate universes, madness and time travel, The Heavens is a dream bound up in a strange awakening; it is a novel of what we have lost, and what we might yet be able to save.


Our Review

The Heavens sounded like my kind of book but unfortunately the style of writing felt a bit like wading through treacle. Try as I might I just couldn’t move past the 4% mark on my kindle.

In New York, in the year 2000 Kate and Ben meet at a party and fall in love. It is the first year without a war anywhere. Kate falls asleep, knowing she is loved.

In London, 1593. Kate wakes as Emilia - the mistress of a nobleman - and finds the plague at her door. Suffering premonitions of a burnt and lifeless city, she sets out to save it but every decision she makes will change her life with Ben for ever.

A story of love and alternate universes, madness and time travel. Unfortunately for me I never got that far.

The concept was good but for me the execution was lacking.
