Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus
Orson Scott Card

In one of the most powerful and thought-provoking novels of his remarkable career, Orson Scott Card’s Pastwatch interweaves a compelling portrait of Christopher Columbus with the story of a future scientist who believes she can alter human history from a tragedy of bloodshed and brutality to a world filled with hope and healing.

It was refreshing to read a “change something in history” take that didn’t involve Hitler, actually. Although there was something a little too ephemeral here for me to relax, I found the story interesting and the history quite revealing as well. Not one to cherish, but I did enjoy it.
