Maggie Foster takes a trip back through time to England, on the eve of the construction of the world’s first iron bridge. To let the bridge be built and the Industrial Revolution to continue unbridled or to destroy the bridge and alter the course of history are among the dilemmas Maggie faces in this “richly evocative and fascinating piece of historical speculation” (Kirkus Reviews).
