What if Jesus hadn't been crucified? For two thousand years the religions of earth have been united in peace and harmony, and humanity enveloped in Nirvana. But in the early decades of the twentieth century, natural disasters, famine, disease and economic collapse bring catastrophe and a fledgling Nazi Party sweeps to power. Now, almost a century later, their brutal persecution of millions is a never-ending holocaust. Yet a few heroes remain. Leigh Wilson, inventor of one of the most significant discoveries in human history and a leading member of the Reich's Technical Division has kept a secret all her life. But plunged into the aftermath of the cold-blooded murder of a Nazi official, she is forced to make a choice. Will she use her power to reset history? Will she destroy what she loves to save what she can only imagine? A Time to Every Purpose is a thrilling mix of science and action, good versus evil, and the eternal question all humans face: Is this my time to act?

Review quote

A clash of science fiction and alternative history makes A Time To Every Purpose rock along, from the opening scenes of unfurling Swastikas over London to the shattering climax of a world torn asunder. Detailed, grounded in frighteningly believable shades of what might have been, what is and what could still be, this debut novel is not to be missed.;"A thriller with heart... Gifted storytelling combines with meticulous scientific and historical research to produce a memorable and profoundly moving story..." (Elaine Fry, The West Australian).;"A Time To Every Purpose by Ian Andrew deals with huge concepts, looking at the broad sweep of history... a well-executed alternate history novel with some great action scenes." (John Wyatt, NewsUK) *
