History is not Destiny
Across another dimension.
I liked that what started as a Time Travel story where the characters realize they are in a past time, in this book evolves to a realization that rather than travelling through time in a single continuum, they are traversing time periods between connected but also independent timelines. David, the young Prince, is freed from the constraints of what was the past, the history before, and takes charge of his, and his people's, destiny to chart their own future history. This appeals to the idealist in me.
Laurel Schroeder is able to express the personality of each character so well, that listening to the book is like hearing each point of view from the character themselves. The audiobook is, for me, definitely an enrichment of my experiencing the story.
There were plenty that had me laughing, not so much as to a joke, but in understanding - comprehending for example the feelings that Bronwyn may have experienced as she adjusted to medieval life. Being a time traveler is, I imagine, much like being an outsider or foreigner trying to function in a different culture or society - something that I can empathize with - and I found myself resonating with many moments in the book. However, the moment that particularly moved me I think would be when David's aunt came back to the house and said "I'm ready to listen"
