Reaching Through Time: Three Novellas by Lurlene McDaniel

What's Happened to Me?
     Sarah finds herself in a strange place, and she can recall only one thing—her name. A young man, Heath de Charon, explains to Sarah that he found her unconscious on the grounds of his family's estate and has been caring for her. Sarah is thankful, but when she starts hearing voices that whisper for her to come back, she is confused, and desperate to find out where she really belongs.

When the Clock Chimes
     Drake Iverson lands a summer job on Sandstone Mountain. There are no computers; he has to do all the work by hand in a large leather-bound book. He doesn't mind, as long as he can be near Gina, who is pretty and kind. But when Gina falls ill, Drake is asked to leave. He is determined to find out what happened to Gina and to uncover other mysteries he encounters on Sandstone Mountain.

The Mysteries of Chance
     Dylan Sorenson offers his help to a girl who seems to be in distress. The girl, Maura, explains that she's simply overwhelmed by the heat and quickly runs off. But Maura is soon drawn back to Dylan and a friendship and budding romance begins. However, Maura doesn't reveal the whole truth about herself, and Dylan has secrets of his own. Can their relationship withstand the deception?

I have read every single book by Lurlene McDaniel. I have my favorites and just the ones I like. This book was a different for her to write, since it has to do with the concept of time travel to different realms of the universe. I guess since a lot of teens like the paranormal stuff she incorporated it in this book. It's not one of my favorites, but it was decent. If you are a fan of hers I would recommend you read it. The only thing I have an issue with is the person who designed the book jacket recycled the cover for the book Return to Paradise. If I was the publishing company I would fix that, because a person may think its Return to Paradise by just glancing at it.

    While this isn't the usual Lurlene McDaniel style, they did all have some sort of health issue, but to me, maybe the novella status, they just weren't as emotional as usual. They all were different styles, but all dealing with time, one a historic type setting, another futuristic and another a collision of past and future.      I liked all the characters and the romances were sweet, it is just none of them stuck with me like her works usually do.

Low key the most boring book ever. I love Lurlene McDamiels just as much as the next person, but this book was terrible. She should stick to the sappy love stories we all know and love. I was not entertained with this book at all.

It is different than most of Lurlene McDaniel's older books. I enjoyed her older writing style a lot more than this book. It was decent, just not what was expected.

Very good books, however, I wish they were longer. They always seem to end right when I am really getting into them.

This amazing book offers three outstanding novellas that whisk the reader into supernatural and fantastical times. From intrigue to romance to complete inspiration, each and every tale is a whole lot of fun! In the first, "What's Happened to Me?," a young girl wakes up in a field. She has no memory of who she is or where she came from. In fact, the only thing she has is a whisper of voices calling her, begging her to come back. In her new 'home,' Sarah finds an extremely handsome boy/man by the name of Heath de Charon. The estate he has rivals that of Mr. Darcy's, and his kindness and beauty is truly extraordinary. What he doesn't have is the answers as to how Sarah appeared in his field, and why she can't seem to get out. From disappearing servants to mythical carvings to a frightening maze, Sarah finds herself trying to solve the mystery of what will happen to her next. In "When the Clock Chimes," a young boy named Drake takes a summer job, helping to catalogue an archaeologist's papers. This professor from Harvard is the father of a young girl by the name of Gina, and she becomes Drake's best friend as he struggles each and every day through a forest of brambles, up a path, to a huge, old house that has tremendous secrets living inside. When a strange old clock begins to tell the wrong time and offers up a chime that causes thrills and chills inside Drake's soul, the young man soon finds himself stuck in a mystery of monumental proportions. And, in the exciting conclusion, "The Mysteries of Chance," readers meet up with a time traveler by the name of Maura. When Maura suddenly appears on a lawn in a normal, everyday neighborhood, a boy named Dylan sees her appear out of nowhere, and can barely catch his breath when he finds out Maura's secret. As the reader is taken on a journey of love, help and friendship, the author goes from the present to the future and thrills her audience to the extreme. Each and every story attracts the mind and allows teenagers to open up their imaginations, as they take the ride of their lives with three extremely strong characters. Quill Says: A trio of unforgettable stories that are a true gift to the YA market!
