She was his beginning, his life, and his end. And she did not know it yet.
Daniel is the orphaned son of a Powhatan warrior, born in 17th century Jamestown. When he is injured in the Battle of Bloody Run and left for dead, he wakes in the care of a young woman named Emmy. As she nurses him back to health, he soon realizes that she is from another time - and that she is the Time Walker his enemies have been searching for.
Emmy is a reluctant Time Walker, sent to 1656 Virginia on her mother's dying command. She prepares for her journey to the past as much as any modern woman could, but soon she realizes that the ancient blood running through her veins makes her a target for danger no matter what time she is in. Daniel is a complication she did not expect - a man who is tangled in her heart and her history in a way that can never be undone.
In a time when settlers flooded the New World under the rule of English Kings and the First People fought to keep their way of life, an alliance between Daniel and Emmy is not easily achieved. Yet as their lives are irrevocably entwined by fate and circumstance, they realize they must trust each other if they hope to survive what the history books have already written.

wish it were as good as I thought it would be
I love time-travel stories. No matter where or what time period. This was an entertaining, interesting and enjoyable listen overall. The story was good, it had the potential to be really good but fell a bit short. It could of also used a little more explanation on the background of the family and the time-traveling aspect.
Romance, time-travel, suspense, a bit of action and a foretold destiny.
Evidently the author has a series of time-travel books some that take place around the same time period as this story early to mid 1600's . As well as another set of stories that are set farther back in time in the 1400's. I'm guessing throughout these series there has been more of an explanation regarding the details of the time-travel and how it is passed down to certain family's. Both of these series sound interesting.
References are made to their mother's past and her time period which sounds like it would be a really good story.
Having a book that tells the events of ones life is an intriguing concept. Would you read it if given the chance? To know the major events of your life before they happen and the time of your death. If you knew would you try and change it.
Emmy and Connor are descendants of an ancient bloodline. They have prepared most of their lives for the time when they will need to travel back in time. They need to go back in time and fix a mistake their mother made. When the time arrives unexpectedly they are as prepared as they can be while at the same time not prepared at all for the situations they encounter.
Emmy comes across a wounded Daniel. She tends his wounds and cares for him. Their meeting was not by chance. It was foretold in the book. Emmy and Daniel were destined for each other. It was unexpected for Emmy but Daniel had read the book and knew. He just doesn't realize at first it is Emmy the book refers too.
There are a couple of unanswered questions. They had to go back and fix a mistake their mother made. Why didn't she travel back and fix it herself? Are all the books the same? Do they all have the same information? So what exactly was the mistake? What event were they there to correct? The story ends in a bit of a cliffhanger since these questions are not answered.
This is the first time I have heard Kay L. Dees narrate a book. Overall she did a good job. Pleasant voice. Of coarse her character voice for Emmy was good. There needs to be a bit more difference between her male and female character voices. They all sound the same basically. There are times she needs to put a little more oomph into her narration. There is a massacre happening in the opening scene, there should be more of a sense of urgency in the narration to reflect the horror of what is going on. Her narration overall was enjoyable.
Background noise in the recording. Kind of a crackling. Maybe the narrator swallowing. Not sure. It is distracting at times though.
