Beyond the Void Darkly (A Christian Time Travel Love Story) by Douglas Tanner is a fascinating love story that is set between 1883 and 2031, where readers are introduced to Mathew Walton who works as a pharmaceutical scientist. He is trying to find a cure for his mother’s cancer and it is at that time he runs into Elizabeth Gibson, the daughter of a doctor. He thinks she has the cure for cancer and he is fascinated by her. They have lived over a century apart and he has watched her die. He manages to lay his hands on her old diary and, as he takes trips back in time, he feels an increasing sense of sadness coming over him. He wants to get in touch with Elizabeth Gibson. But he is a ghost! And he is from one hundred and fifty years in the future!

The author seamlessly weaves love and time travel into this story that also handles themes like heartbreak, loss, faith, hope, philosophy, and destiny. Mathew’s and Elizabeth’s characters are well portrayed and readers feel the urgency and passion Mathew has for Elizabeth and his desire to connect with Elizabeth as they read the story. The concept of time travel has been handled well and the author keeps readers glued to the story till the very end. The emotions are tangible yet at the same time are not exaggerated. For all those readers who enjoy love stories, this is a must-read as it makes them believe in love all over again.
