Publisher's Summary

A teenage girl enters a carriage in Central Park and disembarks in Victorian England.
Cursed by her sister, Brooke, Alexis Powell arrives in the Victorian era. There she meets Ezra, a man recently murdered by an assassin his brother, Amos, hired. Now he's a supernatural creature, and with a touch Ezra sees into Alexis' mind. Intrigued by her memories, Ezra offers Alexis his help only to be rebuffed for his kindness.
Alexis runs away, but Ezra can't shake off what he saw. He follows her through the streets of London, but, vulnerable after the loss of his father, Amos' harassment, and Alexis' many rejections, Ezra eventually decides to leave her alone.
Alexis is unable to find work and is threatened with starvation. She steals a tomato, and Ezra finds her facing the local magistrate and an angry mob. He fights and pays for her freedom.
Finally accepting the help Ezra offers, Alexis moves into the manor he shares with his brother. Romance blossoms, but the bond between Ezra and Amos is worse than Alexis' and Brooke's. While Ezra and Alexis seek a way to send her home, Amos looks for a way to kill them.

Different and enjoyable

I listened to The Carriage back to back to another time travel book but each author had a very different story to tell. This story is about a teen girl who gets into a carriage with her sister for a short ride in modern day New York. She ends up in the Victorian Era Paris. Talk about culture shock. The girl who I think was a brat has a rude eye-opening experience. She faces a lot of adversity while there and hoping to get home and meets a young man and a mutual attraction blossoms. I won't say more but I feel she was humbled a bit by her experience and glad it happened to her.

Melissa Chatwood does a great job narrating both the male and female parts.

Interesting story and enjoyable listen.

The Carraige...

I had a hard time getting into this book, I even started it over twice. I found this story to be confusing and difficult to follow. It is a love story with time travel. At times, I enjoyed the story, but I kept getting lost and having to replay several parts. The author, Jena Baxter has the right idea, but need to fine tune this a little bit better. The narrator, Melissa Chatwood did a decent job on the delivery.

I won this audio book in a book event party.
