Publisher's Summary

College teacher Ellie Standish thinks she's on a sleek modern train heading to a conference on women's studies in Seattle, but she awakens from a night's doze to find herself on a bizarre historical train full of late Victorian era re-enactors who refuse to come out of character. When the leader of the group-handsome, green-eyed Robert Chamberlain-finally convinces her the date is indeed 1901, a skeptical Ellie rejects any eccentric theories of time travel and presumes she is smack dab in the middle of a very interesting historical dream.
She turns the directorial reins of her dream over to smitten and willing Robert, only to realize that dreams cannot last forever. Someday, she must wake up to reality, though Ellie no longer has any idea what reality is. She only knows that Robert must play an important part in her future. But how can he... if he's only a figment of her imagination or worse yet... a man who belongs to an era long past?

Too little story - far too much whining

Poorly researched... Annoying the way the heroine just kept complaining about her time travel. Couldn't really engage in the story... He was likeable she was not. Perditiable trope...

Worth the listen

I loved this book of time travel. The author did a great job of researching. You could really imagine yourself falling asleep on a train and waking up in another time. The narrator did a great performance of all the characters. Great listen. I will listen to it again.



I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

enjoyable story.

Any additional comments?

elle boards a train in the present, falls asleep and finds herself in 1901. she doesn't believe it even when Robert gives her a newspaper with the date on it.
this story goes between past and present. the past she thinks is just a dream.
well written as you are with elle as she cannot understand where she is in the beginning and hoping everthing comes right in the end.
enjoyed the story very much.
I am looking forward to the rest in the series.
