Casey O'Reilly is driving from Albuquerque to Santa Fe to visit her sister when lightning hits her. When she awakens, Luc d'Seraphin helps her reach Santa Fe. However, instead of the year being 2000, it is 1878. Casey rejects the concept of time travel although the visible evidence proves she is not in 2000. Luke explains he is a veteran traveler and tries to guide her until she accepts the pattern that is unfolding and learns to trusts in herself.
Over the next ten days, Casey falls in love with Luke and begins to more than just trust herself. She trusts Luke. He, to his shock, reciprocates her feelings, but refuses to act on it for her sake. However, she finally persuades him to make love. As the time to leave for home occurs, a pregnant Casey and Luke are separated, but she has all the time in the world while waiting for his return to her.
While underscored by a warm romance, this tale centers on an interesting, unique plot that provides depth to the complexities of time travel. The story line is action packed while imparting much insight into the late 1870s Hispanic-American culture. The lead couple is a dynamic team that makes time travel seems like a genuine part of physics. Constance O'Day-Flannery makes her time travel novels read like HEAVEN ON EARTH to sub-genre fans.
Another great time-travel book by this author. I've never read a bad one.
A pleasant book about time travel that is a bit different. You do catch on right away to the difference, but I enjoyed having a little different view of the traditional time travel story.
Cassie gets transported back in time and meets another time traveler. It is a very good read by this author, one that I would put on a "save to read again" list/shelf!
