Post subject:  So I received this letter... (help identify a story)

So I received this letter addressed to Interzone but delivered to my address. My! someone is keen to get their annual poll vote in, I thought. But no, instead it's a heartfelt request for help from Rachel (aged ten)..

Can anyone help identify this story...

"A German girl in the seige of Berlin in the Second World War, who finds in a bombed-out museum a Babylonian ring which transports her mind back into past lives."

The girl - who may be called Welga - uses the ring to change history - first to stop Germany losing the war, then to stop the war starting, then to stop Hitler being born - but her changes don't have the consequences she expects.

If anyone can help then I can write back to Rachel and tell her to stop writing to me and start writing to Andy but soften the blow by answering her quesiton.

I should add, Rachel believes she read the story in Interzone and thinks it might, or might not, be by Stephen Baxter.

Cheers again!

Unfortunately no Baxter stories in IZ since 2002 so Rachel is seeing fairly old back issues.
There is a list of his stories in IZ here
