Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Not only does Dora prove the murderer was someone else, she manages to prevent the murder and save the woman. In the end, history is not changed because it wasn't all that accurate to begin with.

Con: The story seems to be a lot longer than it really needed to be. We know from the first few pages that Dora will be going back to try and change things, and so all of the details make the reader impatient.

The ending is more than a little annoying. Edwin survives, and the records now show his survival, and Helen survives too, but the records still show her execution for his murder? And by happy coincidence, Dora's step-daughter turns out to be Helen's great-granddaughter.
