CHILDREN LOST IN TIME . . . WOUNDED HEARTS FIND HEALING TOGETHER.

When Vickie Cheney and Adrian Bennett meet in Charleston, South Carolina, at the end of World War II, both are lost souls. The handsome RAF pilot and the beautiful Army nurse are haunted by memories of war. But even more tragic, each has lost a beloved child in a recent devastating fire.

But are the children really gone? Even as Vickie and Adrian are drawn together in shared passion and grief, both see poignant images of the lost children in the Charleston streets. But are the sightings real, or merely figments of their grief-crazed imaginations? Why do the children always run away, and why do they appear in clothing from an earlier age?

Soon Vickie and Adrian embark on a fantastical journey through time to solve the mystery and find the lost children. But they arrive at a moment in time only days before the great Charleston earthquake will destroy the city, while being pursued by a villain determined to kill them all. Can they find the children in time? Will their wounded souls find healing together? And can a miracle really happen, a miracle that will prove that love is stronger than time . . . and even death?

    Fantastic time travel romance

    In 1945, Charleston celebrates the end of the war in Europe. Twelve years old Nate Bennett and his companion, nine years old Cathy Cheney, both living in St. Christopher¿s orphanage, hold off on celebrating. He hopes his RAF pilot father Adrian never comes for him because the English aristocrat abandoned him and his mother. Cathy loves her guardian, her sister Vickie, a nurse in Italy and wants her to come home for her. <P>However, the two youngsters become involved in a dangerous situation after a killer realizes they witnessed a murder. Only Cathy¿s ghostly friend Bessie can save her and she does by helping the two of them go back in time. When Adrian and Vicky arrive in Charleston to pick up their respective child, they are shocked to learn a fire burned down the orphanage, killing the two children. However, Vicky sees a strange apparition of her younger sibling and believes Cathy is alive. A seemingly natural disaster sends the two adults back in time to the nineteenth century where they begin to fall in love even as they find the lost children. Still both have demons to overcome from their natural time, making a permanent relationship in either century doubtful. <P>Eugenia Riley is one of the better authors of time travel romances and her latest entry, EMBERS OF TIME, is a warm tale that will please sub-genre fans. The story line is fast-paced and descriptive. The end of World War II, days before the 1886 earthquake, and 1818 Charleston (or is that Charles Town) seem alive through the awed eyes of the four lead players. Ms. Riley has another winning TEMPTEST IN TIME. <P>Harriet Klausner
