"A wonderful time-slip story, beautifully written and with a superb sense of place. Go captures the spirit of early twentieth century England perfectly, both in the past and the present, in a novel that is exciting, emotionally engaging and ambitious. I loved it!" -- Kate Mosse "Justin Go has written an astonishingly vast, meticulously plotted, and beautifully told novel. In elegant, haunting prose he tells a wartime story that is at once violent and lovely, hopeful and despairing. I won't soon forget Go's passionate, star-crossed lovers and their deeply moving story, set against the riveting, utterly realistic backdrop of the Great War." -- Anton DiSclafani, New York Times bestselling author of The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls "Justin Go's impressive and ambitious debut is meticulously plotted and researched, and combines the narrative drive of Dan Brown with the literary sensibility of Alan Hollinghurst's The Stranger's Child." Financial Times "Packed with wonderful, deep and fascinating characters, Justin Go's novel is a whirlwind of emotion and history, poignant and breathtaking in its scope and execution ... the story is terrific, with brilliant, realistic dialogue and fantastic characters." Books Monthly "Destined to join the long list of wartime romances that have been turned into Hollywood movies (think The English Patient and Atonement), US author Justin Go's first novel is what they might've called in the Fifties a "rip-roaring adventure"... An engaging detective story...The Steady Running Of The Hour will leave you feeling emotionally drained and historically enlightened." History of War magazine, 4 *
