A time travel romance that is beyond any I have read before! Amazingly, this is Karen White's first novel. I didn't know that until I finished the book and went to her website to write to her and tell her how much I enjoyed "In the Shadow of the Moon".
The book centers on Laura Truitt and a strange lunar eclipse combined with a comet. Laura travels back to the Civil War era in search of her daughter. Here she meets Stuart Elliott and his family. This book kept me enthralled as Laura attempts to blend with the era she finds herself in and at the same time find her way back to the twentieth century. I had to laugh as Laura stuns and surprises Civil War era men with the independent spunk of a twentieth century woman. This book is a keeper and I will read it again, which I rarely do. Readers who enjoy romance, time-travel and edgy excitement will positively love this book!
