Ernestine Lambert is the "lucky" heroine that gets stuck in the past. It all starts when the history grad student gets a job as an assistant to Professor Ed Roberts, who sparks her interest in the Super String Theory; she finds herself in a strange body when she makes a few alterations in his work. Her new body belongs to French Poppa De Bayeux, who she feels is her former self. Poppa is in love with a man she sees other versions of in the different timelines in which she later finds herself. Professor Ed Roberts realizes that Ernestine is no longer herself but Poppa from the ninth century and must find a way to return the women to their original time zones and find the folks that seem to be messing with the timeline. S. Forrest Nomakeo's The Places You Will Be From is time travel mixed with multidimensional and predestined-love narratives.
Once I immersed myself in The Places You Will Be From, it was hard to pull myself out. My mind was "spirited" to another dimension like the characters of the book, and I spent a while thinking about the mind-stimulating theory of time travel and the psychedelic effect it conjures up in me. To be clear, The Places You Will Be From is mainly sci-fi, so readers should prepare to get their minds completely engaged with some imaginative concepts. S. Forrest Nomakeo also includes interesting historical times and figures that would appeal to history enthusiasts. Parallel worlds, deja vu, and reincarnation are just a few of the amazing concepts discussed in the book. Apart from the great ideas, I enjoyed the story and was engrossed in the realistic characters and clear descriptions. It's a complete deal!
The narrator for The Places You Will Be From, Margie Valine, does a fantastic job in projecting the emotions and tone of the story. The recording quality is superb and clean, and the words are quite clear and understandable. She adds a fun touch to it with the different accents, voice changes, and sparkly inflections. It's quite impressive how different her voice sounds when she switches from one character to another. The story is awesome, but the narrator makes it even better. I had a cheerful, relaxing, and pleasant listening experience.
