    A Captivating Time Travel Story!

    A wife and mother with a successful career discovers her husband can no longer put up with the fights and the neglect. He leaves her and so starts her adventure through time. In the violent world of vikings she finds her husband going by a different name, but he knows her not. She tries to win his heart and in doing so, she realizes why her husband left her. Will she be able to travel back through time to win him back? Will she even want to go back to the future with his viking version so near and dear to her? From the first page this book captivated me. I felt every emotion Ruby experienced. The frustration, the jealousy, the desperation, the joy. I fell madly in love with Jack and Thork, but was so angry at Thork at times, I thought I would throw the book across the room. Instead, I kept flipping the pages. I laughed, I cried, and I laughed and cried some more. I cherished this book thouroughly and finished it in record time. Two days after I opened it for the first time, I have just finished. I woke my fiance with my sobs. You see, he is my viking and I saw so much of him in this novel. I'm sure you'll see your man too, or atleast the viking version of him. More crude, more muscular, more violent, more insufferable, with a deep need to be loved. Thork was such a real character. He was a true viking (violent, a lady's man, fiercely loyal to his family and his honor). The first Sandra Hill novel I read, I really disliked. It took me a over a year to pick up another of her books. Thankfully I gave her a second chance. I LOVE this book as I do so many of her novels! It's not as funny as many of her other books. It's actually quite sad in parts. But the tragic elements are what make it so wonderful to me. I highly recommend this one. Thank you Sandra Hill!

    a good read, but not the best

    This book was slow moving and more the a litte infurating at times. It took Thork too long to realize he loved Ruby. It was a good book, but the ending sucked.
