Here and Now and Then is a time travel book, set in the twenty second century where they have advanced health wise and no longer eat that unhealthy fast food!

Kin Stewart is an agent who time travels back to a certain era and sorts out crime and other events that his superiors assign him. Only his device to travel back breaks and he is stranded in our time. And… he quickly forgets all that he has known before. He settles in and marries and has a daughter.  Only trouble is an incident brings him right back into contact with his previous world.  And back to it. Oh the anguish as he re-enters his own world again but does not forget his previous family. How might he reach them?

The story is full of interesting technology and the method of time travel and the idea of it was sort of believable.

What I did find was that while I wanted to know how things would work out I didn’t really emotionally connect for some reason to the characters. I was happy at how it all worked out for Kin but for me the momentum was not there.
