here are a few twists in the plot, especially regarding the female character, whom we first think is ruthless, but there seems to be more to her character.
We Shouldn’t be Here by DK Sachs is a compelling book. The plot is intriguing. The author writes in a descriptive, entertaining way. Two travellers find themselves on Earth, having travelled back in time to the 1920s after an explosion. The male is badly injured and is found and taken to a convent, where he will be nursed back to health. The female is arrested by the police. Things take a turn for the worse, and several policemen die and the female flees. She tries to search for the male traveller. The advantages the travellers possess are their remarkable suits and their ability to read the minds of those they meet. Even though the world they come from seems far superior and near-perfect compared to where they now find themselves, they are both captivated by the freedom and creativity in the 1920s. My favourite part of the book was the relationship between Detective Inspector Hadleigh and his driver and assistant, Betts. The inspector is assigned to investigate the police deaths. Their partnership and camaraderie are touching. There are a few twists in the plot, especially regarding the female character, whom we first think is ruthless, but there seems to be more to her character. This is an unusual and thought-provoking story.

A cataclysm has propelled them to a distant past - 1919, a time of fear and suspicion, the suffering of The Great War casts a long, spectral shadow over the populace. The travelers have no way of returning to their own paradigm, their only option is to stay alive for the next three hundred years.
