The book describes by the author what at at one time was labeled a "time slip" and presently the as the "Moberly–Jourdain incident". Assumed now to be a possible hallucinatory experience later embellished by the ladies themselves, they describe wandering into what appeared to eighteenth century Versailles, even encountering the ghost of Marie Antoinette among others. Though not taken completely seriously, the book was a sensation at the time of publication going through four printings in three months.
