This book had a great premise, but it failed to live up to my expectations. It was too preachy. The beginning is good. The alternate realities that Finch creates are fascinating and interesting. Once she starts the move towards the character’s affecting each other, it gets very lame. Finch tells the story as if she's trying to convince you that this is the way the world actually is. Instead of finding interesting ways to explain how her fiction could be science, she uses a lot of jargon that sounds almost-good and expects you to fall for it. This is not science-fiction; it's just fiction. ( )

Book description
"Alternate Realities"


"This is the tale of the many possible lives of Anastasia Valerie Stein which come to touch one another through a twist in the fabric of space-time: Ann, unhappy wife and mother in a world much like our own; Val, independent teacher in a timeline of scarcity; Stacey, a free spirit with two lovers; and Tasha, strangest of all, a professional sorceress in a world where the Third Reich rules England. Together they join to confront a force that manipulates all their worlds, and discover a truth that transcends their individual lives.



Finch combines compelling, believable characters, the ancient magic of the Tarot, and quantum physics to weave a spellbinding tale of the infinite possibilities of space and time."
