Is love timeless? 

Does only one true love exist for each person?
Can the course of history be changed in order to save a future generation?

Sophie Ford, awaiting a heart transplant, thought she was sleeping in the arms of her beloved husband, Jamie. However, she has woken to find herself in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 1863, without explanation as to how she got there, or where her husband is. 

Taking refuge with a doctor and his family, she finds herself in a volatile relationship with their neighbor, Richard Madden. His expectations and desires become difficult to ignore, and Sophie must find a way to hold off his pursuit.

She rejoices when a soldier, looking identical to Jamie, arrives. Although he claims he doesn't know her, she's convinced he's her husband and sets out to make him remember. Sophie races against time as she faces increasing pressure from Richard, who threatens their chance to reunite.

Can she break through Jamie's barriers and bring his memory back? And once found, can their love survive living in a different century?

Don't get me wrong I didn't hate this, it was okay'ish as novels go.

The concept was good, but some parts seemed to be a little laborious, whilst the end just seemed to be precipitous.  In my humble opinion it would have been better to have taken a little more care with the winding up, rather than a mad dash uphill and quick run off the edge.  If the end was re-written it could well have come up by another star.

One high point for me was the "Ten Cow" explanation, which worked really well within the work as a whole.

As ebooks go though, it was not a badly delivered product.  I believe just one mistake (see below) was found (and you all know I like to find them), so the author should be commended on the delivery of a good quality product.


If it weren't for the hurried ending it would have got 4 stars, but from me it's 3 stars.

Errors/Bug Bears:

65% - ".... and a solider rushed over to try help" - missed out "to" surely.
