A story that didn’t really grab me, perhaps as it flipped between three different perspectives – a young married couple on Earth, their relationship not at a good place, find that coming across some alien technology that enables them to see some possible futures for them, is a catalyst in resolving their relationship. We see both his and her perspectives and thought-processes, and also the alien who has been using the tech in combat on a far-off planet, and it lacks a bit of depth and subtlety.
