College teacher Ellie Standish thinks she's on a sleek modern train heading to a conference on women's studies in Seattle, but she awakens from a night's doze to find herself on a bizarre historical train full of late Victorian era re-enactors who refuse to come out of character. When the leader of the group-handsome, green-eyed Robert Chamberlain-finally convinces her the date is indeed 1901, a skeptical Ellie rejects any eccentric theories of time travel and presumes she is smack dab in the middle of a very interesting historical dream.
She turns the directorial reins of her dream over to smitten and willing Robert, only to realize that dreams cannot last forever. Someday, she must wake up to reality, though Ellie no longer has any idea what reality is. She only knows that Robert must play an important part in her future. But how can he... if he's only a figment of her imagination or worse yet... a man who belongs to an era long past?

I loved it!
I love history. I absolutely anything old. This book was right up my alley.
Ellis meets her love Robert on a train. One she thinks is modern, but soon finds out it is one that somehow sent her back in time.
A Train Through Time is the first book in a series and so far I'm in love! I love the story and I love the characters and can't wait to see how this series progresses. The ending was a great little twist and one I didn't see coming, but loved it!
This time travel was little different. It really is a great start to what I hope is a great series....Stormi
