Romance and adventure...and a trip to where an American tradition began....
Libby Edwards, a gifted horsewoman, unwittingly wishes herself back in time to Louisville, Kentucky just before Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby become a reality. During Libby's journey in the past, she stumbles upon her destiny. Unfortunately, he's in the wrong century. In 1874, there's no electricity, no Internet, no modern medicine, no antibiotics - no Starbucks! And even worse than that, women have no rights. Libby has no desire to stay.
Widower, Colin Thorpe, a renaissance man of his time, has big dreams. He is a horse breeder who names his thoroughbreds after mythological gods because he has a reverence for past cultures and an appreciation for the unexplainable.
Libby and Colin can't resist falling in love with each other. After all, Colin accepts Libby for who she is and she understands Colin's dreams better than his deceased wife ever did. Yet he grasps early on that Libby doesn't belong in 1874. And because his wife never adapted to the move from Virginia to Kentucky, becoming bitter and unhappy in the process, he won't take the chance of the same thing happening to Libby. Can these two lovers find a way to be together despite their challenges?

Kentucky Time Travel Romance
A very fun time travel twist!
I have already started listening to it in in my car a second time. It is a great story.
I like the fact that Libby can travel back and forth in time. Most time travel stories are a round trip visit at most. The way she traveled back in time was a nice twist. I enjoy the knowledge of horses that Sandy has incorporated into the story line.
I love the French accent, the little boys and Libby's best friend tones of voice....very pleasant voice.
The ending made me cry in a good way.
I highly recommend this book to any historical romance lover. Of course, the time travel aspect is great too.
