"Beautifully written, this story brings time travel to life!"
Upstate New York, 2012. Emily Stanton, a sociology major, graduates from college and is obligated to work for the mysterious company that funded her education. But a job with Evergreen Research Corporation is not what she expected. From fancy balls and operas to corsets and kid gloves, Emily learns to be a specialist in 1910 society. In the process, she finds herself fully immersed in the lives of wealthy aristocrats and industry leaders, whose thirst for power leads them to manipulate everything, including time. Thrust into this strange and dangerous world, Emily becomes their most important asset.
Unable to trust her coworkers or her surroundings, Emily finds herself alone—with her very survival in the hands of a handsome stranger, Wendell Beringer. Unfortunately, Emily soon discovers that he has a few secrets of his own. Can she trust this man or the feelings she develops for him? Only time will tell.
Follow Emily’s unexpected journey, where journal entries to her deceased aunt and the powerful secrets they contain, become her only link to the life she once knew and the future she must choose to follow.

About the Author
A fan of everything vintage, Denise Liebig’s desire to be a fly-on-the-wall during the early 1900s was what first inspired her to write DEAR MAUDE, and later, FOR THE LOVE OF MAUDE, and FOREVER MAUDE, the books of The Dear Maude Trilogy. Her travels, family stories/ experiences, and her love of a good silent movie also lent a hand. When she’s not imagining stories about the past and writing them down, Denise lives in the present with her husband and three kids.
