Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Is it really possible that somewhere in time, the perfect paradox could be created? Does romance really stand a chance, and could it ever flourish amidst so many intricacies and broken lives? How can a nineteenth-century governess unknowingly cause so much devastation?

As Nell’s world opens up, we follow her on a complex journey, on which she discovers love, loss and betrayal, and is forced to play a dangerous game from which there appears to be no escape.

An intricate family plot slowly begins to unravel, in which she finds herself centre stage. She was never supposed to leave Haunchcroft estate, and he will do everything in his power to keep her there…

Could a possible rip in time be the salvation that Nell seeks?

My Review:
well written story which unfolded with richly detailed descriptions, from the way the author describes the locations + eras and to even the way a character smelled just goes to show the great care they put into their work.. I loved reading about Nell, the heroine of the book,coming into her own. from the first chapter to the last chapter there was boundless amount of character growth for her and I truly appreciated that. I adored her friendship with Jeremy and her time in the 1960’s you could definitely empathize with her outsider feelings when it came to certain situations. 

The plot is itself is so world building that I was desperate to know even more about Jeremy’s time traveling abilities and why she was so susceptible to it all involved and has so many twists and turns that when it ended I was totally amazed. Like some other reviewers I never saw the ending coming!! it was like total shocker!! a definite must read!

My Rating:
