Once the dust has settled he meets Tom who befriends Joel, takes him home and gives him a job. Joel quickly acclimates to 1941 and makes friends, including his 21-year-old grandmother! Will Joel make waves that affect his own future or will he settle into the simple life of 1941?
The Mine started off really choppy and disjointed but once Joel travelled back to 1941 the writing flowed much better and I quickly became engrossed in the story. Joel and his friends from 1941 came to life in a very real way. I had this feeling of anxiety throughout the last part of the book wondering what kinds of decisions Joel would make and how they would affect his future. I throughly enjoyed the ending and recommend this one to all sci-fi readers who love a romantic twist.
