Twilight in Babylon

Category: Fiction / Historical
448 pages; ISBN: 0446611654

Rating: 8/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner


Twentieth century time traveling Texan Chloe Kingsley and her soulmate nineteenth century Cheftu are in Jerusalem (see SUNRISE ON THE MEDITERRANEAN) when a fire leaves the former American near dead. Cheftu rushes Chloe to the Ark of the Covenant, but she is transported into another time, place, and body. Chloe finds herself occupying the body of a woman in Ancient Sumeria as a flood devastates the land.

With her usual aplomb Chloe journeys to Ur where justice is blind for men only and education is for boys. Applying her twentieth century values, Chloe challenges the patriarch society and opens up a fast food restaurant even while Cheftu arrives as a high priest in search of her.

The final tale in Suzanne Frank’s time travel series, TWILIGHT IN BABYLON, is an exciting novel that for the most wraps up loose ends for readers of the previous books, but newcomers may struggle with connectivity. The story line is loaded with biblical era detail and some modern day anachronisms, but regardless moves rather quickly forward. The lead couple, as with the prequels, brings the plot to life though refreshingly yet surprisingly Chloe and Cheftu traverse separate subplots for much of the novel. Ms. Frank’s provides a delightful conclusion that purists may dub more alternate history than historical.
