Format – Kindle e-book


Synopsis – Kathleen Findlay is married to a cad, her mother is driving her crazy and her life is falling apart. Then her uncle dies, leaving her the family’s Revolutionary-era home and, she believes, an escape from her chaotic marriage. But one afternoon, while searching for a rake, she discovers a man in her garden shed — and a free fall through the centuries.

As her life spins wildly out of control, Kathleen finds her heart and in the process, her own place in time.


My Thoughts – This was on offer in the kindle store so i decided to download this and give it a go. This book is basically three books in one. It is fantasy, romance and historical fiction. To start with i almost gave up on this book, but i am so glad that i didnt, although it had quite a slow start it went on to be a really good book.


Basically Kathleen (or Kathy) finds a man in a garden shed (Robert) who has fallen through time. Then there is all sorts of issues, how did he get there, why is he there and what happens now that he is? I thought that this was delt with really well and it really hooked me in. There is also a huge element of mystery within the book, who is making the mystery calls? why was the door left open? who is the man in the car? These questions really kept me reading.


I am not sure if the historical facts are acurate, i never studied that era in American history, but it sounds pretty acurate and the detail that the author went into about this time period was fascinating.


The ending was brilliant, i never saw that part of the story coming and thought it was the perfect ending for this book. Unfortunatly, the author hasnt written anything else, as far as my searches will allow, which is a shame because this book is good.


Rating – 4/5

    I read this book today. And I mean I started it this morning, and I just finished it 15 minutes ago. And when finished, I immediately got on the internet looking for the author – and found this blog. The only thing I could find fault with was proofreading and a few small editorial problems (like extra words inserted in sentences where they did not belong, a few spacing issues), and one or two “huh?” moments. Which I decided to ignore. The story is excellent.
