In 1927 Boston, Marie Tranton, vivacious and in love, thinks all handsome men are like Douglas Fairbanks. But once she becomes engaged, she sees a side of her fiancé she doesn’t like. She goes for a walk to think and wanders through the fog into a strange garden.
In modern-day Boston, Rick Lauman is one of the nice guys who finish last—especially in the romance department. His matchmaking sister gives him a 1920s book to lure him to a theme party. When he sees the young woman who’s just walked into his garden, he’s stunned. Why? She’s the image of a girl in the book.
Both Marie and Rick become convinced she’s wandered into the future. Frightened and homesick, Marie walks in the garden every morning to try to get back home while Rick waits, wondering if she’s going to come back.
Unlike all the women Rick has dated, Marie is guileless and open, but he resists falling in love with her. After all, she could walk out of his life any morning. But he doesn’t want her to marry her fiancé. According to the book, that man abused her. Rick decides to show her how a man is supposed to treat a woman. But spending so much time with her, he can’t help falling in love.

This is one of the sweetest most heart-warming stories I have read in a very long time. It wasn't foul-mouthed, or filled with sex scenes, yet it's pages were full of love and pasdion and honestly, goodness. Hard to find a real sweet romance/time travel book without adding all the sex these days, but this one should win awards for the content, and page turning storyline. Five stars all day!

I'm use to people going back in time. This was very well written and kept my attention with the comparison of 2011 and 1927.
Excellent work. Can't put it down.
