The only criticism I have is that details were missing from the writing. like how did Jeff get Kittie back to New York when she was in the coma. things like that. how did the doctors revive her? did she bring the book back with her that jogged her memory. did her other possessions survive the trip back in time. etc. looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy. really like the narrator on this book. usually men don't do so well. but he was great.
I loved the story! it was a parallel to Outlander in several areas, with lots of people who had the same names, but I did enjoy the story.
I will be listening to the other two.

Too predictable & simple, especially after being immersed in Diana gabaldons more complicated plots and characters. Maybe good for 12-14 yr old girls.
Unlike most of the dramatic action in most romances, where the protagonists don't talk honestly leading to conflict, in this series they actually tell each other and their family and friends the truth and work it out
enjoyed listening to this book and meeting the characters . Liked the history of the 1500 century which is the time period that this book takes place. good narration by Road Pendleton.
A nice story that is slow to get moving but has a lot more action in the second half. Characters are OK hero is likeable heroine character could have been developed more. Narrator does get a bit annoying with doing female voices badly a female narrator would have been better!
book and movie lover
Hopefully someone who is more skilled at character development!
He did okay with the material he was given. It's hard to bring the characters to life when the author can't be bothered to give them personalities.
This book would need an entire rewrite before going to the screen.
I had great hopes for this book and really wanted to like it. It had a couple of my favorite themes - time travel and historical Scotland. This was a poorly crafted story. We know nothing about the the hero and heroine before they're banging away like bunnies. Are we really to believe that a woman, who has never slept with anyone in her life, upon waking in a strange environment, would really jump into bed with some random guy without even getting his name first? The two characters had no real bond other than sex. Really, who pines for a one night stand for eight years?
And the use of clan tartans didn't start happening until the 1700s. There were plaids in the 1400s, but they weren't clan specific.
Anyway, this just felt more like a school girl's sexual fantasy than a novel. It was just poorly developed story line between sex scenes and it would have been SO MUCH better if it had been fleshed out a bit more.
This is a pretty good book. It could use a little more details, but overall it was
a good listen. The story left a lot of gaps you had to fill in on your own.
