Overview

Dr. Cassandra Reilly is surprised to find herself time-traveling again, this time to New York,1853, accompanying the internationally acclaimed artist, Evie Johnston. Evie has funded the trip, explaining that she wishes to meet her ancestors, activists in the Underground Railroad. However, the beautiful painter has another agenda altogether.

When they arrive in the pre-Civil War city, Evie's deception embroils both her and Cassandra in the activities of the abolitionist revolutionaries, a situation fraught with danger, as well as unexpected romance. Cassandra struggles to keep history intact, and to keep herself and Evie from falling victim to a gang of human traffickers. All the while, each woman discovers how the past has a way of becoming all too personal and present, as they both fall under the spell of the time and people they meet.

    Brace yourself for another trip back in time. I was stunned by my journey into Jane Austen's England in Young-Ellis amazing novel, The Time Baroness. On this second adventure Dr. Cassandra Reilly agrees to return through the portal to the days preceding the Civil War. The Underground Railroad was a time of heroes and human traffickers. Young-Ellis sets her readers in the middle of the action and does not let up. The sights, sounds, and even the emotions of the time surround and engulf us. This is a book you will not easily forget. The Time Heiress is a way of looking back at how far we've come and how we traveled a portion of that dangerous journey. Highly Recommended.

    I've lived in New York since 1999, and my books are set in New Y

    I've lived in New York since 1999, and my books are set in New York also, so I can't help having a special feeling about a book set in New York history. The BBC America series Copper, which covers the gritty side of New York around the Civil War era, is a must-watch in my household. I loved Gangs of New York (the book) as well. Thus my great pleasure that Georgina Young-Ellis has, in the same vein, and so vigorously, taken on pre-Civil War New York. This time, time-traveller Cassandra Reilly has someone to protect -- a 22nd-century celebrity artist named Evie who is paying richly for the privilege of visiting her ancestors. Evie is passionate and very very young at heart -- I wrote to Georgina in mid-read and said "She's such a loose cannon" -- and she can't help falling in love with another young artist, escaped slave Caleb Stone. Of course, there is some romance for Cassandra as well.

    As always, Georgina excels at the inclusion of period detail, including geography, clothing, food, and stores (amusingly, Tiffany's jewelry store was then called Tiffany, Young, and Ellis). Music and literature make prominent appearances, as does author Herman Melville. There is not only emotional, but physical danger. There is a depiction of the difficulties of living with racial equality in a society that does not allow it. There is sex, and it is not sleazy and without consequences, as sometimes occurs in low-grade romantic books. This sex is meaningful: it leads to love and loss. There are characters tied to the previous novel, The Time Baroness. Also, someone I didn't like in that book justifies my negative opinion.

    As previously, I really like the optimistic depictions of the 22nd century -- this is always my favorite element of Georgina's books, and I could read with great pleasure Cassandra's adventures in her own time.

    I definitely recommend this book. On to the next one.
