This book started out quite slow - basically to build character and plot. After the first few chapters I started to get into it more. I really liked..Show More » the idea of the story.....time travel and romance....it just didn't deliver the "wow" factor for me. I liked the main characters (Emilie and Zane) and enjoyed how they had to adapt to life in a different century. I also liked how early American History was intertwined in the story. I just wish the story had more pizzazz. It did, however, have a sweet ending!
The quality of the sound wasn't the greatest...I heard a lot of echoes - especially in the beginning (not sure if it was a download problem or with my device). The narrator got better as she went along. In the beginning her voice of Zane was poor. Her other voices were much better.
I would still say if you enjoy time travel/romances give this one a try when it goes on sale. If the second in the series becomes available I may give it a try. Sometimes second books are better than the first.
Pretty entertaining , but the author overused phrases like " Brooked no Argument " . And the little girl in the story is constantly called "the child"..Show More » - over and over - instead of the little girl , or girl, daughter , etc. Frustrating .
