Richard Collier is a 36-year old writer with a terminal brain tumor who falls in love with a beautiful actress - Elise McKenna. But there's one big problem. She's dead. She lived years ago in another time. But that doesn't stop Richard who figures out a way to travel back in time and win her heart.     Somewhere in Time is an entertaining time travel/romance novel. It's at times both humorous and tragic. If there is one problem with the novel it spends a bit too much time getting …
