    I really loved this book! Sarah is a stitcher- sent to stitch



    I really loved this book! Sarah is a stitcher- sent to stitch up time holes. John is a time needle, her handler- kind of like Dean Stockwell from the televsion show Quantum Leap. Together they are able to sew up the time holes and save people.Sarah’s first mission is to WW2 Sheffield. I would say thrown in at the deep end as most of the time she is there, bombs are dropping. Her next mission is Edwardian London. I loved the Upstairs Downstairs references, and Amanda James really made you feel like you were there. Sarah gets into trouble with the lady of the house and ends up blackmailing her.She stitches up the problem and is returned to the present and John.John is a sweet character with a great back story, who is secretly in love with Sarah. At that point Sarah has a crush on him too but doesn’t truly feel how deep until her next mission. After returning from the old west, John and Sarah’s relationship became romantic – but things start to spiral out of control. She is given one last mission. She is sent to the 1920′s to save mankind - no pressure there. Sarah manages to save the day and her relationship with John in plenty of time.This book is fresh and original and I would love for it to develop into a series of books. It puts a different spin on time travel and makes it the most unique book I have read in years. I highly recommend A Stitch in time, it is the perfect holiday read.
