Then left her alone.
Troianne Shelden is your everyday, intelligent student. With a love for history and
stunning figure, she’s a catch for any guy. But after a night of passion with a
handsome stranger, introduced to her by their mutual friends, she finds herself
pregnant with nowhere to turn for advice.
Her parents passed away long ago and, soon after Troianne finds out she’s pregnant,
her grandmother passes, too. Left with a large inheritance, she looks forward
to life with her new baby. Fate takes the wheel when she goes into labor. On her way to the hospital, she
passes out from intense pain and wakes up in a very different place…The next thing she knows, she’s hearing carriage wheels and voice shouting for
help. Lightning illuminates the inside of what was, only moments before, the
back of a taxi cab. When the door opens, she’s greeted by a handsome man
dressed like he stepped out of the past.
In shock, she realizes that she’s somehow traveled back in time–
…and she has no idea how to return.
I really wanted to like this book. I thought the plot was good but I found the characters to be totally unrealistic – for example when she finds out she is in 1863 her whole language for a 21 year old American girl completely changes to that era. That didn’t sit well with me.
It was almost as if rather than go completely nuts and demand answers she just accepted the situation.
As the book progressed I actually forgot she was from the 21st century with the way she spoke and in the timeframe I found it hard to believe that she would just fall into that way if speaking so quickly.
I think without the whole time travel thing the book as a historical story would have been great, as I loved the descriptions of the elegant dresses she wore and could imagine them vividly.
Sadly 3 stars for this one, which is a shame as I loved the concept.
