A wish to turn back time comes true for two archaeologists in the Yorkshire moors in this time-slip romance by the award-winning author of Hubble Bubble.
The loss of the love of her life is just one reason that history teacher Grace Nicholls would love to turn back the clock. It’s just that an archaeological dig at a Bronze Age settlement isn’t what she had in mind. But, encouraged by her best friend Tabitha, that’s exactly where she finds herself—in the wind, rain, and sleet of the muddy moors.
Prof. Duncan McDonald is the site director, and his earnest pursuit of ancient artifacts makes him appear single-minded and unreachable. He has his reasons. But when a woman on the site goes missing, it seems that Duncan’s own distant history might be coming back to haunt him.
As they dig deeper, Duncan and Grace get more than they bargained for—and come to realize the past is much closer than either of them ever imagined. Now they may have to live in it if they want to uncover all of its secrets.
