4.5 Stars 'The Lost Prince' is an imaginative and thought provoking novel that tells the story of Eleanor Burden as she returns to her rightful place in Boston's high society, takes a husband, and waits for life to happen. She isn't that different from most other women of her time, except that Eleanor believes she has knowledge of every major historical event that will happen during her lifetime. How does one begin to explain this to others without sounding insane? As Eleanor's predictions start going awry, she is forced to face the forces of free will and predetermination, as well as believing in herself and the knowledge she possesses. The only question Eleanor must finally ask herself is if she will sit back and let history play out or will she use her gifts to change history? This was an incredible novel - unlike anything I've read before. There's another book before this one, The Little Book, but I was able to read this one without having read the first. The characters are realistic - especially Eleanor - who has her own strong personality along with flaws, strengths, and morals. I truly enjoyed getting to know Eleanor throughout the book - as a person as well as learning more about her amazing gifts. The setting was perfect for the novel and is described with such intricate details and vivid descriptions that I felt as though I was transported back into that era. The plot flowed effortlessly and had me hooked from the first page - and it didn't let up until the last sentence. It's definitely a book that will leave you thinking about a variety of issues - fate, predetermination, morals, free will, among others - long after you've finished. I don't do spoilers in my reviews, so it's hard to talk about much more of the plot without giving away anything. Suffice it to say that this is one of the most intriguing and extraordinary novels I've ever read, and one that I highly recommend to fans of all genres - especially historical fiction, science fiction, and fans of time travel and fantasy. Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I have read "The Little Book" several times now as I just love the story. If you like historical novels, "The Little Book" is a twist on that genre, as well as a new look at "time travel" books. While you wait for "The Lost Prince" to arrive, read (or re-read) "The Little Book." Edwards writes charmingly and shares historical fact with a compelling and thoroughly enjoyable story. The characters come across as formulaic in some instances, yet that is the veneer that covers the actual story within the story. "The Little Book" unfolds before your eyes. I won't spoil anything, yet will mention that you get to meet Freud, before he comes and adjective -- that exchange is fabulous, and one of my favorites in the book. Edwards portrays a seemingly cavalier male character while also providing us with independent, free-thinking women. His descriptions of the time periods bring them to life in a refreshing way that makes them a true part of the story. I can't wait to read "The Lost Prince" when it arrives on my nook. If it is half as good as "The Little Book," it will be great!
