Not a lot later, Jake’s pal Al, who runs the neighborhood diner, divulges a mystery: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to aim to avoid the Kennedy assassination. So starts Jake’s new existence as George Amberson and his new global of Elvis and JFK, of huge American automobiles and sock hops, of a stricken loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a gorgeous highschool librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who turns into the affection of Jake’s life—a existence that transgresses the entire common principles of time.

Margaret sat Mary down on a stool and busied herself with the woman's elaborate hairstyle; that it had taken Cecilia, Margaret and two other women half the morning to fix properly. Mary's long, thick honey hair had been bound in two plaits which had been wound above her forehead. A veil, of the same rich color as her dress, had then been laid over the crown of Mary's head, and painstakingly pinned in place with jeweled hairpins. Then a broad circlet woven of gold and silver wires, with beautiful pale-green peridot stones gleaming within its twists and turns, was placed over both plaits, dropping low about Mary's head to cover both her ears and holding the veil in place.
Charles swallowed, and then started as Joan leaned down, seized the Treaty of Westminster, and tore it to shreds. WEARY AND sad at heart, Isabeau lay upon her bed and tried to dull her thoughts so that she could, indeed, sleep. But this afternoon's events kept sleep a long, long way distant. Isabeau had thought that Charles would quiver and wail when presented with the treaty which formally bastardized him. Then, having seized the proffered escape, Charles would scurry away to whatever hidey-hole he found comfortable in order to avoid the laughter of his fellow Frenchmen.
Catherine was conceived one winter when Isabeau was being held captive in a stronghold of the Duke of Burgundy's—the duke had thought to ransom her back to King John until he'd realized after four months that John would not pay a single gold piece to have his daughterin-law returned. Finally, the duke had been forced to release Isabeau with much grumbling and cursing. Catherine was not Louis' daughter. Indeed, everyone assumed that Isabeau had consoled herself during her capture with a guard, or perhaps a cook.
