I liked "The Pocket Watch" although different than any time-travel books I have read/heard.

She soon meets her riding companion, one of the handsomest men she has ever seen, who seems to dislikes her immensely. Although she always enjoyed reading history books she has no idea where she is or how far back she has traveled. When they approached a castle she was thrilled. She'd seen history enactments of castle life and now she would get to see it first hand.
She plans on learning where she is and when, and see how close recorded history comes to the reality then return home but she learns something that delays her departure.
Ceci Giltenan is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. The 2 books in this series are the only books she's penned I have listen to but I've thorou..Show More »ghly enjoyed both.
I think I like The Midwife even more than "The Pocket Watch". Ms Giltenan puts a unique twist to time travel. In "The Midwife" Dr. Elizabeth Quinn meets a mysterious older woman on an airplane who makes her an unbelievable offer; to be transported back in time. Of course Elizabeth does not believe it, but she is so tired from being on-call the night before delivering babies much like an assembly line, and having to finalize her presentation for a professional meeting in new York, she accepts an antique pocket watch for time travel more to get rid of the older woman than believing she can travel back in time, but tells the old woman she will try it. The snow storm that delayed landing at JFK Airport worsens after landing and when Elizabeth takes a Taxi to her hotel room they are involved in a several car pile-up on the way. She is knocked unconscious in the accident and wakes up in the 13th Century being dragged into a castle to face a dangerous Laird who orders her to pay attendance on the wife of a Laird of another Clan.
An interesting story perfectly narrated by Paul Woodson.
