"Beautifully written, this story brings time travel to life!"
Upstate New York, 2012. Emily Stanton, a sociology major, graduates from college and is obligated to work for the mysterious company that funded her education. But a job with Evergreen Research Corporation is not what she expected. From fancy balls and operas to corsets and kid gloves, Emily learns to be a specialist in 1910 society. In the process, she finds herself fully immersed in the lives of wealthy aristocrats and industry leaders, whose thirst for power leads them to manipulate everything, including time. Thrust into this strange and dangerous world, Emily becomes their most important asset.
Unable to trust her coworkers or her surroundings, Emily finds herself alone—with her very survival in the hands of a handsome stranger, Wendell Beringer. Unfortunately, Emily soon discovers that he has a few secrets of his own. Can she trust this man or the feelings she develops for him? Only time will tell.
Follow Emily’s unexpected journey, where journal entries to her deceased aunt and the powerful secrets they contain, become her only link to the life she once knew and the future she must choose to follow.
A delightful read
Imaginative and engaging. This book is well-written and is a ton of fun. I enjoyed it very much.
You’ll want to read all three!
Complex enough to make it feel real, you will fall in love with the characters as you follow them back and forth, and up and down...and just when you think it couldn’t possibly get any lower, hope springs eternal. This trilogy is not just a good read, it’s an adventure!
Pearls on a string
This book subscribes to the notion of time as a set of pearls on a string, rather than the currently more fashionable notion of an infinite number of potential futures. By and large the author pulls it off and delivers a suspenseful tale of love and period detail. She has done so well with the first book I am eager to read the next two.
