What would you do to be remembered? In Kate Mascarenhas’ The Psychology of Time Travel, four female scientists discover time travel and embroil themselves and their families in a world of ambition, intrigue, duplicity, and innovation. It’s a fantastical take on real-world physics that presents an alternate history which has a ring of truth hidden in the pages, as well as a mystery that can be solved, but not stopped, with the help of a jump through time. The story is deceptively simple at first, but Mascarenhas expertly draws you in as she weaves a complexly layered story about the lengths we will go to in order to be remembered by history and to protect the ones we love. – Kylie

comes The Psychology of Time Travel
, a mind-bending, time-travel debut.
In 1967, four female scientists worked together to build the world's first time machine. But just as they are about to debut their creation, one of them suffers a breakdown, putting the whole project--and future of time travel--in jeopardy. To protect their invention, one member is exiled from the team--erasing her contributions from history.
Fifty years later, time travel is a big business. Twenty-something Ruby Rebello knows her beloved grandmother, Granny Bee, was one of the pioneers, though no one will tell her more. But when Bee receives a mysterious newspaper clipping from the future reporting the murder of an unidentified woman, Ruby becomes obsessed: could it be Bee? Who would want her dead? And most importantly of all: can her murder be stopped?
Traversing the decades and told from alternating perspectives, The Psychology of Time Travel
introduces a fabulous new voice in fiction and a new must-read for fans of speculative fiction and women's fiction alike.
