Marian Creighton and her father have worked for years to cure the rare form of cancer that took Marian's mother and threatens to life of her sister, Ellen. When her father suddenly falls into a coma on the verge of a groundbreaking discovery, Marian rushes to his side, and is thrust into the 1300's in her fight to sure her sister and keep her father's research out of the wrong hands.
A thrillingly romantic time slip novel that catapults Marian into the Medieval times during the dangerous peasant uprising of 1381, where she falls under the protection of the noble warrior, Will Durham. I loved how Ms. Hedlund had Marian navigate the culture shock of time travel, acknowledging the everyday details that would definitely come as an unpleasant surprise. I really though that the author did a great job of navigating the strengths and weaknesses of a different time period that to some would possibly feel oppressive especially in regards to women, how they lived and were treated.
I loved the supporting characters, I'm excited to see more of Harrison in the next book, as well as Marian's sister, Ellen. I liked Harrison from the beginning so I was thrilled when I found out that the next book would feature him.
Overall, this was an exciting read, with engaging characters and a fresh imaginative plot. A strong start to a new series, with wonderful characters, exciting twists, and amazing chemistry between Will and Marian! I can't wait to see what will happen next!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
