Overview

Time travel. History. Love. Mystery... and a woman who wakes up in the middle of it all.

Each night, when Robin drifts off to sleep, she finds herself dreaming about the life of a woman in the Victorian age. She soon realizes it's not a dream at all, but she is truly slipping into San Francisco's past.

While living two lives - one as a mom in the modern day, the other as a proper young lady at the turn of the century - she discovers how she's being sent back to a bygone era is only the first mystery. A much more important question is why she's there.

With the help of a rookie police officer, Robin takes off on a spellbinding adventure, sifting through a century's worth of clues to untangle the past - and to put love to the test. History, though, proves itself a worthy opponent, and she comes to experience firsthand how destiny can be kind and cruel in the same stroke.

    This book brings to mind that great line from ¿The King and I¿:

    This book brings to mind that great line from “The King and I”: “It is a puzzlement!”

    Truly, where to begin. This was an interesting premise, played out in a fascinating way.

    I love the author’s voice. This is her first novel, and yet there is no hesitation – the reader listens eagerly as Nancy spins her tale. You can tell the amount of research and detail that went into creating the work, as the reader slips seamlessly into the words, never once pausing over a frayed or gnarled plot device. And yet, the author does not overwhelm, or go overboard in her excitement to tell us the tale, feeding us just enough to paint the scene, to continue to deepen the mystery step by step.

    Which bring me to my next item of note: the underlying mystery. Our intrepid author wasn’t satisfied with creating a story about a dream-portal time traveler, and the adventures of life in both worlds. We also get a murder mystery to solve! Don’t misunderstand me – this is not an “everything and the kitchen sink” work, where there is too much going on to understand or believe. Instead, we have a well-baked oatmeal raisin cookie of a tale, consistently enjoyable, with the occasional extra surprise.

    Unfortunately, towards the end, I bit down on something hard, and couldn’t quite work myself around to accepting how the tale resolved itself. I liked the unexpected way the dream-side of the main character’s story came to an end, that was a nice touch. Yet, the letter explaining parts of the villain’s motive was kind of anticlimactic, and lessened the impact of everything that had just happened.

    Also, we don’t get an answer to the identity of a major character throughout the entire book – the one that’s causing the time travel. We get the when: 1900. The where: San Francisco. The what: stop the murderer. But, we never learn WHO it is that causes this transport through time, HOW it is they do so, or WHY they do it. The main character questions this herself, and is influenced by them several times, but it is never brought to light.

    I hear there may be a sequel, perhaps even a series in the works, and maybe the readers will get all of the answers then. If there is a follow-up book, I will be sure to pick it up – and hope it is the same fun, if puzzling, type of story the author brings us in this work.

    I received a review copy of this work from the publisher through NetGalley.

    Anything concerning time travel has always fascinated me and that's initially what drew me to this book. The idea that you may find a letter you left for yourself decades ago or receive a necklace from someone you gave it to almost a century earlier - you could spend hours just thinking about it - or I could, anyway. There were things about this book I really liked and some, not so much.

    I loved Robin/Jennie's voice. As someone who also speaks before thinking far too often, I could completely identify with her. The way she perceived the world and references she made to pop culture were very humorous. I also thought Travis's character was easy to like and, without giving anything away, definitely had an open mind.

    I struggled with the slow pace of the novel. After being thrust into a different era, I understand Robin/Jennie would need time to adjust, but it seemed as if too much time was spent on describing her surroundings and the unfamiliar customs of that time rather than why she was there and what needed to be done.

    The writing flowed well, the ending was satisfying in a bittersweet way, and the links within the novel to pictures of various things from the early 1900's was unique and helped with the imagery.

    If you enjoy a slower-paced novel with time travel, mystery, romance, and humor, this is your book.

    I received a digital ARC of this novel from the publisher through NetGalley.
