When the plane went down in the mountains near her cabin home, Liberty Stone rushed to the scene determined to help somehow. She encountered a miracle when she found the pilot had not only survived the crash but sustained no life-threatening injuries. Recuperating from minor wounds in his host’s remote cabin, Caleb Hornblower is grateful for Liberty’s care but he must return home—to the twenty-third century. The longer he remains in the past, the more uncertain his future. And as Caleb spends more time with Liberty, he realizes that if he has to give up the woman he’s growing to love, he has no future.

"Some bookstores are filled with stories both inside and outside the bindings. These are places of sanctuary, even redemption---and Jeremy Mercer has found both amid the stacks of Shakespeare & Co." ---Paul Collins, author of Sixpence House: Lost in a Town of Books In a small square on the left bank of the Seine, the door to a green-fronted bookshop beckoned. . . . With gangsters on his tail and his meager savings in hand, crime reporter Jeremy Mercer fled Canada in 1999 and ended up in Paris. Broke and almost homeless, he found himself invited to a tea party amongst the riffraff of the timeless Left Bank fantasy known as Shakespeare & Co. In its present incarnation, Shakespeare & Co. has become a destination for writers and readers the world over, trying to reclaim the lost world of literary Paris in the 1920s. Having been inspired by Sylvia Beach's original store, the present owner, George Whitman, invites writers who are down and out in Paris to live and dream amid the bookshelves in return for work. Jeremy Mercer tumbled into this literary rabbit hole and found a life of camaraderie with the other eccentric residents, and became, for a time, George Whitman's confidante and right-hand man. Time Was Soft There is one of the great stories of bohemian Paris and recalls the work of many writers who were bewitched by the City of Light in their youth. Jeremy's comrades include Simon, the eccentric British poet who refuses to give up his bed in the antiquarian book room, beautiful blonde Pia, who contributes the elegant spirit of Parisian couture to the store, the handsome American Kurt, who flirts with beautiful women looking for copies of Tropic of Cancer, and George himself, the man who holds the key to it all. As Time Was Soft There winds in and around the streets of Paris, the staff fall in and out of love, straighten bookshelves, host tea parties, drink in the more down-at-the-heels cafés, sell a few books, and help George find a way to keep his endangered bookstore open. Spend a few days with Jeremy Mercer at 37 Rue de la Bucherie, and discover the bohemian world of Paris that still bustles in the shadow of Notre Dame. "Jeremy Mercer has captured Shakespeare & Co. and its complicated owner, George Whitman, with remarkable insight. Time Was Soft There is a charming memoir about living in Whitman's Shakespeare & Co. and the strange, broken, lost, and occasionally talented, eccentrics and residents of this Tumblewood Hotel." ---Noel Riley Fitch, author of Sylvia Beach and the Lost Generation: A History of Literary Paris in the Twenties & Thirties "There does seem to be something about the odd ducks that work at bookstores. Jeremy Mercer has captured the story of a wonderful, unique store that could only be born out of a love for books and the written word." --- Liz Schlegel, the Book Revue bookshop, Huntington, New York

Poetry is a mysterious combination of images, sounds, reflections prompted by reader and writer, a rhythm of thoughts conveyed in expressive phrases to convey subtle or blunt messages. Poetry is a challenge to the uninitiated and a rewarding experience to those who revel in imagination. Times change. Some disparage the simple rhyme. Yet the sing-song effort of positioning image with image tickles the imagination, spurs the memory, and prompts recollections of other times and other feelings. Rhyming, when forced, results in cheap efforts to create images or phrases based on convention. Words that result in confusion fail in that the reader misses the intended thought. Ballads, odes, songs, sonnets, elegies, epigrams, epitaphs, inscriptions, and autographs come into their own in their own times and days. Many linger and stand true through the ages. Flawed artistic forms fall short to dismay their observers by lack of substance, or perhaps even by lack of convention. No claim is made here that any of the following will linger through time unscathed or even remembered. Some may be challenged by their lack of substance. A few, perhaps, will strike a convergent point of identity and be accepted for what they are: observations by one recalling points in time.

In his mind, then, small cracks opened, from which ancient images emerged, perhaps lost in the mass grave of those fragments of mem ories thrown there, randomly and confused with others, buried in the cemetery of lost memories. As it happens when a ray of sunshine penetrates from the dormer window, to break through the walls of the darkness of a dusty attic, so the darkness of that mass grave was pierced by the dazzling reflection of a glow of memory, which raised the dust of seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years past, that eternity had deposited there. ?Perhaps it is these ? he thought ? that appear in those strange dreams without meaning, where it happens that the door of the mass grave of those confused fragments opens and come out like the gusts of the winds of Aeolus, enclosed in the wineskin....

What happens when a scientist creates a machine that he thinks will stop time but it accidentally malfunctions and all his friends disappear? No, I'm legitimately asking you, this isn't a wacky rhetorical question. I genuinely don't know what would happen. Sure, I did just write this book based on that particular premise, but I was just making stuff up. I don't know what you would do in real life. Probably call the police, right? Maybe get your supervisor to inform the OH&S people. You know, play it safe. The people in this book did not call the relevant authorities. They went off and had an adventure. So, in that respect, this is a bit of a cautionary tale. Adventures are dangerous, you should always call the police if your friends disappear. And you should probably wear sunscreen more often as well. That's unrelated, it's just generally good advice.

On the day the Second World War broke out, Frank White was a 12-year-old schoolboy in Manchester. On the day it ended, he was serving on a Royal Navy warship in the Indian Ocean. In 2013, he started to write this novel. 'What I wanted to do,' he says, 'was to capture that feeling of those times and remind people of what the country went through.' 'Fabulous, often funny . . . the authentic, freewheeling atmosphere of a time when all bets were off' Daily Mail As Churchill and the nation face their darkest hour in 1940, a Lincolnshire village wakes up to a glorious summer's morning. Following Dunkirk, the fate of the whole war will soon rest with the RAF and their desperate effort to win the Battle of Britain. If they fail, Hitler's next step will be invasion. And as the scene comes to life before us over the next six months, this shadow of war will not disappear. From the pub to the church, struggling single mother to the lady of the manor, the paper boy to a traumatised bomb disposal volunteer, this superb jewel of a novel portrays a community of people and weaves together their stories with passion, betrayal, intrigue and suspense. There Was a Time is a triumph of the storyteller's art. This edition includes a new Author's Note and additional illustrations by the author.
