This book started out quite slow - basically to build character and plot. After the first few chapters I started to get into it more. I really liked the idea of the story.....time travel and romance....it just didn't deliver the "wow" factor for me. I liked the main characters (Emilie and Zane) and enjoyed how they had to adapt to life in a different century. I also liked how early American History was intertwined in the story. I just wish the story had more pizzazz. It did, however, have a sweet ending!
The quality of the sound wasn't the greatest...I heard a lot of echoes - especially in the beginning (not sure if it was a download problem or with my device). The narrator got better as she went along. In the beginning her voice of Zane was poor. Her other voices were much better.
I would still say if you enjoy time travel/romances give this one a try when it goes on sale. If the second in the series becomes available I may give it a try. Sometimes second books are better than the first.

What didn’t you like about Janine Hegarty’s performance?
The story is good, but listening to the reader is almost painful. She is trying so hard to enunciate every single word that it sounds choppy and unnatural. She's not very good at changing voices and Zane sounds like a woman with a deep voice. I have not finished the book and am considering returning this one and getting a hard copy to read instead.

The characters were well written and I enjoyed the story. There was one aspect which spoilt it for me though, which was the ease by which they accepted the time travel. I didn't find it convincing. Other than that it was a good book.
