Time travel. History. Love. Mystery... and a woman who wakes up in the middle of it all.
Each night, when Robin drifts off to sleep, she finds herself dreaming about the life of a woman in the Victorian age. She soon realizes it's not a dream at all, but she is truly slipping into San Francisco's past.
While living two lives - one as a mom in the modern day, the other as a proper young lady at the turn of the century - she discovers how she's being sent back to a bygone era is only the first mystery. A much more important question is why she's there.
With the help of a rookie police officer, Robin takes off on a spellbinding adventure, sifting through a century's worth of clues to untangle the past - and to put love to the test. History, though, proves itself a worthy opponent, and she comes to experience firsthand how destiny can be kind and cruel in the same stroke.

Love the time travel, the research, the mystery, and the romance.
I really enjoyed the story. It kept me guessing til the end.
Anything concerning time travel has always fascinated me and that's initially what drew me to this book. The idea that you may find a letter you left for yourself decades ago or receive a necklace from someone you gave it to almost a century earlier - you could spend hours just thinking about it - or I could, anyway. There were things about this book I really liked and some, not so much. I loved Robin/Jennie's voice. As someone who also speaks before thinking far too often, I could completely identify with her. The way she perceived the world and references she made to pop culture were very humorous. I also thought Travis's character was easy to like and, without giving anything away, definitely had an open mind. I struggled with the slow pace of the novel. After being thrust into a different era, I understand Robin/Jennie would need time to adjust, but it seemed as if too much time was spent on describing her surroundings and the unfamiliar customs of that time rather than why she was there and what needed to be done. The writing flowed well, the ending was satisfying in a bittersweet way, and the links within the novel to pictures of various things from the early 1900's was unique and helped with the imagery. If you enjoy a slower-paced novel with time travel, mystery, romance, and humor, this is your book. I received a digital ARC of this novel from the publisher through NetGalley.
I was instantly in love with the main character in Nancy Price's 1st novel, Dream of Time. She reminded me of me, the mother of two, compassionate, sarcastic, and sometimes completely overwhelmed. The story takes our main character not only from one time to another but also from one body to another. One set of circumstances, divorced chunky, thirty something, mother of two with tons of responsibilities, to young, beautiful, thin, childless, ready and open for adventure. This to me embodied the fantasy of many woman through out the ages. The love of ones current life, never ever wanting to give up our children or what we have built, but longing to still be new and fresh. The new and fresh you getting to fall in love for the first time all over again, and with the perfect man. Our main character in the then (the year 1900) finds herself falling for the not only beautiful, but strong, funny, and understanding, man of her dreams. The two together have to stop things from happening in the then that will terribly affect the lives of so many in the now. Beautifully written, historically accurate (as far as what our character witnesses while visiting the then), and just enough suspense to keep you guessing the whole way through, this is a great read. A bit of mind candy with a history lesson seamlessly weaved in, loved it.
