Here was a strange mirror indeed! It reflected an image all right, but not an image from the same era in history!

. I thought that would be your suggestion."

"If you'll excuse me," the doctor continued, "I shall use your telephone to make the necessary arrangements."

He left the room.

Beside the bed, Mark Carter still stared dumbly down at the girl he loved. The girl who tomorrow--no, today, for it was nearly morning now--was to have become his wife. He tried to speak, but his throat was too twisted and thick with pain for words to come. His broad shoulders were slumped. His brown eyes blurred with tears. A queer, strained sound of awful grief tore itself from somewhere deep within his chest, like the moan of an animal in torment.

A hand touched his shoulder.

"Come, Mark. We can do no more good here."

Mute, stumbling, broken, Mark allowed Professor Duchard to lead him from the room. Down the hall. Into the old man's study.

"Sit down, my boy, and pull yourself together."

A weird sort of twist on time travel: bodies don't go, souls do, and have no memory of the time they came from. The bodies stay behind, catatonic.

An antiques dealer is dumped by the heroine in favor of the hero, and as a wedding present they receive a strange mirror that sends the heroine's soul to her ancestor's body. She has to be rescued before she is murdered, but how? Luckily, her scientist father is the smartest man in the world, and her fiancée is a two-fisted man of action.

An okay story that gradually becomes hard to believe at the end.

***..

In a nutshell:

Jealous suitor gives ex-love, Elasin, a mirror which transports her psyche to that of a 17th/18th century ancestor who, history tells us, is brutally killed by an evil baron's henchmen. A lot of the story revolves around the fiance and father-inlaw-to-be scientist figuring out what happened and how to save Elaine.

Fairly good. Not too deep, stereotypical characters, something of a surprise ending - it was okay.
