Some of the veteran novelist’s much-appreciated novels are Doomsday Book, Lincoln’s Dreams and To Say Nothing of the Dog:

Doomsday Book: A multi-award winning work, Doomsday Book is about Kivrin, who is set to go to one of the deadliest eras of human history for an on-site study. For those who are controlling her time travelling, this mission is all about carefully monitoring of the location where Kivrin would reach. But Kivrin gets stranded in a past age even as her instructors in the 21st century tries to rescue her. Kevrin, however, finds herself emerging as an unlikely symbol of hope in one of history’s darkest phase. This 1993 work is one of Connie’s best creations and in this, she tries to explore the issues of evil and suffering and a determined human spirit against them in another age. This is an incredible work in deed.

Lincoln’s Dreams: This 1987 book perfectly blends history and psychology with time travelling. In this work, a young historical researcher for a Civil War author Jeff Johnston sees reality defined on a winter night when he meets Annie, a woman suffering from nightmares. Haunted by the lovely woman’s nightmares, Jeff takes her on an emotional journey through the Civil War’s heartland in search of a remedy. Their relationship gradually blossoms and they become two intense lovers connected by history but challenged by a threatening duty. Lincoln’s Dreams is full of suspense that keeps the reader absorbed.

To Say Nothing of the Dog: This Hugo and Locus award-winning book published in 1998 is about a world of mystery, love and time travelling. Ned Henry, who has been moving between the 21st century and the mid-20th century in search for a Victorian atrocity needs rest. The mission is about restoring the Coventry Cathedral which was ruined by Nazi air strikes. It is then when another time traveller called Verity Kindle brings something from the past. Henry now needs to rewind to the Victorian era to help his fellow traveller not only to save the mission but also to stop alerting history.
