The year is 1862. Dan Fields, a Corporal in Stonewall Jackson's Rebel Army, is marching near Bath, Virginia. At the height of a blizzard, he touches the cross at his neck and remembers his Granny's warning: "You won't die in this war, but you may wish you had". Seeking refuge, he stumbles into a cave, and suddenly finds himself in 2010. Cold and starving, Dan stumbles onto the farm of beautiful Allie Johnson, who saves his life. But Dan has been followed into the future by his nefarious cousin, Dillon, who wants the cache of gold hidden by Dan during the war - and wants Dan's girl as well. Dan must fight the effects of living in a time not his own, and in the process somehow neutralize his ruthless enemy from the past - or both he and his newly beloved may be swept away by the...Rebel Traveler! The grand debut of a striking new voice in romantic fantasy!

Yes, it's a page turner.
Dan Fields, a man after my own heart
I preferred savoring it over several days.
If you’re looking for gratuitous sex and violence, this is not a book for you. But if you want a tale of slimy men getting their comeuppance and strong women saving themselves, check this out. Real-life people, unlikely circumstances, romance, action, history, culture shock, and a sprinkling of the occult meld as well in this story as meat and vegetables in a savory stew. And for dessert, the good guys win in the end.
I enjoyed the story line, but the narrator's voice was too monotone. I think it would have been better with more feeling in his reading.
