Connie Willis adds a seventh Hugo Award to her list of accomplishments with this diptych. Continuing a theme developed in The Doomsday Book and To Say Nothing of the Dog, Willis imagines a near future (2060) in which Oxford University historians conduct field work by traveling into the past. The past in these two books (which are actually one story) is London during WWII. Content rich and detail heavy the read can be a demanding slog. But the strategy becomes clear when the time travellers begin to suspect that their seemingly benign observations may have inadvertently shaped the course of history toward the defeat of the Allies.
