A speculative novel about other selves from parallel universes. From Publishers Weekly Readers will need a willing suspension of disbelief to enjoy this earnest pastiche of inspirational memoir/romantic adventure/science fiction, but then Bach's fans have swallowed everything from Jonathan Livingston Seagull to The B.
What if space shifted and time bent and we could meet ourselves as we'll be 20 years from now? A journey with his wife on road they never took and imagination and fear are tools for saving worlds. A curious loving fantasy in harmony with science and spirit at once; an open door ajar on a different path to finding ourselves.
Under the spell of quantum physics, Bach and his wife Leslie are catapulted into an alternate world in which they exist simultaneously in many different incarnations. " These little homilies can either be uplifting or mightily boring, depending on the reader's point of view," wrote PW.

See my review for Bridge Across Forever. ( )

The ideas are nice, but this guy was no writer. We'd have the same if a lot of engineers suddenly decided to write fiction. Frankly, I'd much rather have him write something philosophical/technical (for example, like Jane Roberts with her husband) than try to pretend that he can write fiction.. ( )
