The past is waiting.
Josie Jackson has been thrown back to the era of the Mongol Empire by Carter, the mastermind behind her trip to the Old West. Soon after arriving, she’s discovered by Carter’s enemies. They sever her connection to her handler, leaving her no choice but to obey them – or risk never making it home.
She completes the mission they assign her, only to have her hope of seeing her family and time again crushed. Her new handlers have stranded her in the past - alone, friendless and with no empathic memory chip to help her navigate the dangerous politics of an Empire at war.
When a Mongol warrior named Batu becomes her protector and guide, she can't decide if she's better off with him or alone. Strong, brave, loyal and quick to both laugh and kill, Batu and his world initially baffle her. With nowhere else to turn and no other option, Josie takes a chance to find happiness in the beautiful yet dangerous steppes of thirteenth century Mongolia.

East is the second book in the History Interrupted series by Lizzy Ford, and that series title takes on a whole new meaning in this book. Josie is finally where she feels like she knows who she is and where she belongs. She has given up on returning home and opened her heart to a new home and a new family...but then the lives unravel. This is a book of many strong characters, where honor is the word of the day. Very well done, but no HEA yet.
Awesome. I received a copy of this book for an honest review. And, I honestly loved it! It is 190 pages. It is the second book in a series, West is the first book. It starts right where West leaves off, and I do recommend reading them in order. It is a time-traveling series, full of mystery, love, heartbreak and suspense. There are quite a few references to dr who (which I am not familiar with, but maybe some of you are). This series brings back some memories from quantum leap for me. Are there some aspects about the time traveling that I am not entirely sure I buy? Sure. But I've never read a time traveling book that didn't have me questioning certain things. However, if you push those things aside and just go with it, you are in for a fantastic adventure and a glimpse into different periods in history. I don't want to give anything away. If you like mystery, romance, and history, you will love this series. I can't wait to see what happens next. Thanks Lizzy!
I love all of Lizzy Ford's books and this one is no exception. This is number 2 in the series and she has a way of drawing you into each world that she creates. I particularly like the title character, Josie, she comes to life in this book and Lizzy makes her personality really stand out. East is a history lesson, a mystery, a self help book and a love story all rolled into one, I highly recommend it. The only negative is that we have to wait until 2016 for the next installment, I would like the books to be closer together in release dates so the memory of each one is fresh in my mind
