The Time Table, by Caroline Mather

“Every so often I lose a ball . . . I wonder in what century they are rolling about?”” Jeremy Finch, 1812

“. . . Tony Finch was never found . . . well, yet.” Larry Fischer to Sophie Fischer, 2016

In the billiard room of Larry Fischer’s London home stands an antique billiard table that came with the house. Set up in the 1600s by Phineas Finch as the craze for billiards dawned, the table was cut from a standing stone on the Finches’ north-country estate and shipped to London . . .

The curious properties of the Time Table connect lives across time as each generation seeks true love.
