Publisher's Summary

The year is 1499. As Alexandra Dunn’s farmhouse is set ablaze, her grandfather places precious stones in her palm, telling her she has until the next full moon to return with a hero ... a brave, chivalrous knight to help save her family. Familiar objects become a blur as she is swallowed in darkness. Suddenly Alexandra is standing in the middle of Central Park, but she has no time to ponder on the wondrous powers of the stones or the amazing sights before her ... she must find a hero before all is lost.

Joe McFarland would be the first to admit that he’s far from hero material … definitely not the man she’s looking for. A firm believer in quietude and non-violence, he avoids conflict at all costs. At 34, he is one of the younger Professors at NYU where he lectures and teaches History: The High Middle Ages.

Joe’s organized, well-structured life begins to unravel the moment he meets Alexandra Dunn. He figures she majored in medieval history before going off the deep end … until days later when he is miraculously transported through time, to 1499 England. Dressed in Dockers and a button-down shirt, Joe thought he was ready for anything ... anything but this!

An armored man with a very authentic looking broadsword is about to strike him down. With only nail clippers and a Bic to defend himself, Joe has no time to think about such an implausible phenomenon as traveling through time … not if he wants to live to see another day.

    "I really wanted to like it but........"

    A time travel romance but something was lost during the travelling I'm afraid. I just can't put my finger on what was really wrong with this story, I think it skimmed over a lot of details and, as a result, it was just a light totally 'silly' type story. It was like a recipe with a missing ingredient and you know that something is missing but you can't guess what it is.

    I didn't like the narrator either she was so s l o w so double speed it if you're going to purchase it.

    I've already downloaded Return of the Rose otherwise I wouldn't have bothered until it was on sale.

    Worth my credit? No, I could quite happily of lived my life without ever hearing this tale. But, if it's on sale, and you're wanting a light listen, then maybe yes.

    "Not what I was looking for..."

    I love time travel novels, but this one was just too light and silly for me. I didn't finish it.

    Story
    "Large parts Missing"

    This one's a disappointment. Seemed like something was missing from this story line. So much that it was beyond me to get through it. I really dislike it when this happens because drats, these do cost us money. I honestly wish we could get our money back when we are unable to listen to the entire books we pay for.

    "Jeeez.."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    NO!! The narrator is just terrible and I gave it 3 stars for overall and story because it seems like it will be a good story but I've only reached 10% right now and I'm finished listening. I will finish the story by reading it. Joe's voice sounds just like Alexandra's. The narrator doesn"t even try to make it sound like a male. All she does is read the book. AND not a bit of emotion when she reads.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Wilds’s performances?

    Absolutely not!


    Did A Knight in Central Park inspire you to do anything?

    Yeah.. Read or listen to another time travel.


    Any additional comments?

    If this narrator is being paid to read this book someone is wasting their money. She could take lessons from Katherine Kellgren. That's one wonderful narrator. So much emotion when she reads, anger, joy, sadness, love, hate, etc. She reads a book like it should be read.
