{4.5/5} “As for the project we’re engaged in here, well, the threat you’ve hinted at seems rather bizarre, but the country is awash with rumours about Hitler’s super-weapons. A Nazi time machine isn’t even top of the league table of outlandishness, believe it or not. If only for the sake of morale, the government must be seen to be making an effort to investigate all of these threats, and, if necessary, put a stop to them.”

Weaver by Stephen Baxter, published in 2008

A small number of people are aware that you can send a message to the past. During World War II the Germans invade Great Britain and they now control the southern part. The Nazis will stop at nothing to find the one man who’s needed to send another message to the past — luckily for them he’s a prisoner of war.

This is the 4th and last book in the Time’s Tapestry series.

It’s about all the insane things that happen during war. We finally discover the source of most of the prophecies from the previous books in the series.

If you’re curious how history could have unfolded differently, given a little nudge, this is the series for you.

I previously reviewed the 3rd book in the series, Navigator. I’ve now read 7 books by Baxter and will read more.
