With her marriage falling apart back in the future, however, her heart’s desire is to somehow make him love her again and this time stay in the past and change history.

Will she be able to, though, especially when Hilary, a gold-digging ex-courtesan enters the scene just as determined to make James her own?

I loved this book so much because the reader is once again reunited with Susan and James but not just for a short while… for virtually the whole book! We follow Susan as she jumps from the 60’s to the 90’s, the time travel element was once again superb, and this jump was exceptional. It was incredible to be apart of a different time period; to experience the different factors of culture and lastly, it was perfect to see Susan and James evolution. The reader will follow Susan as she jumps back in time once again but instead of going by herself or with a friend like she did in a previous book, she brings her daughter Michelle! This element was superb, and I was so excited that Michelle was going to be apart of Susan’s journey. The fact that Linda S. Rice, the excellent author of this novel, decided to include the daughter was superb, and a fantastic plot device. This is because Michelle falls for James son! Yes, now we have two romances and gosh does it make a perfect read! I would implore all of you amazing readers to read this excellent book and fall in love with characters and a brilliant story. S
