Eli meets a mysterious traveler a few times over the course of his life. It’s years for him, but days for her and not necessarily in a linear fashion. Harry, the traveler, discourages his interest, but not quite successfully enough. When he finds out that there is a faceless man after her, Eli goes to great lengths to warn Harry. As a result, they become reluctant partners in the search for The American Dream, a tangible object. They and the other searchers, for they are not alone, are all pursued by the faceless men.
The way they travel is a form of time-travel frequently. But, they are limited to traveling through the history of the United States. So, Harry dislikes the term time-travel.
The book has a few flaws, but overall it is well-written and enjoyable. There are some slow spots, but I found I still wanted to know what happened next and that carried me through. The only other thing that bothered me a little was Eli’s willingness after meeting Harry just a few times to go to the great lengths he did to warn her.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. It’s an enjoyable time-travel story.
