Where and When
Events of the past, present and future mingle in the life of one man. Peter Standish, an ardent young American inherits a house in Berkeley Square and changes places with his ancestor, the Peter Standish who came from New York in 1784 and married his cousin Kate. He takes up the threads of the earlier Peter’s life but falls in love with Kate’s sister. They have to part, for the modern world recalls the modern Peter and his ancestor clamors to return to his period.
