This book does not fail to please. You can almost feel the historical characters, know what they are saying and what they look like. This might be a work of fiction but incredibly well researched.

I could not put it down.. ready and waiting for volume 2 - JESS FOXWORTHY A must read - Ever since I received an audible version of the Timeless Falcon, it has been like opening a box of luxurious chocolates. I dip in and find another unexpected luscious adventure of Beth, the history student time traveller, to unwrap and see where her friend Anne Boleyn's journey is headed. Guided by Philippa Vincent-Connolly's expert descriptions of the Tudor England, Hever Castle and the Royal Court, Timeless Falcon is a gripping novel for all history lovers - PHIL ROBERTS, Historian and writer. Phenomenal - I picked up this book because of my intense adoration of all things Tudor England and Anne Boleyn - and I was blown away. I first listened to the audible narration, which is absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend it, and then purchased a copy to read on my own. By the time I had finished, I was GUTTED to find out there’s not a release date for book two. I have my fingers crossed for soon though and I’ve followed all of the authors social medias and such to keep up. I’ll be the first in line for book two!! I need this series!!!! It’s everything I have ever dreamed of, and honestly it’s a joy watching Beth go back and forth and manage the difference between her two worlds. I need to know what happens!!! Please release the rest of the series and get the same audiobook narrator!! I’ll be getting hard copies and the audiobook copies as well. Hurrah! - AMAZON REVIEW Phenomenal and Original - Timeless Falcon is just as good, if not better, than anything Gregory or Weir has written. I was hesitant about the time travel aspect, as it is so often done badly, but Vincent-Connolly does this very well. I also loved that it was a refreshing, different way of telling Anne Boleyn's story. I started reading and couldn't stop. Can't wait for the next one! - JENNIFER DUNLO Tudor Time Slip - In “Timeless Falcon”, Phillipa Vincent-Connolly retells the well-known story of Anne Boleyn through the eyes of a modern-day woman, Beth, who travels back in time to Tudor England where she meets the real Anne. Now, Anne Boleyn’s story has been done to death, so to speak, and there are countless novels recounting the story of her life. But this one is different. Vincent-Connolly offers a story skilfully weaved around real-life characters but with a surprising twist. The detailed and vivid narrative transported me to a time period that I love, and allowed me to experience Tudor England like never before. “Timeless Falcon” is very well-researched and fabulously written. It’s a page-turner enhanced by flawless narrative and an absorbing plot, making it a perfect choice for fans of historical fiction, Anne Boleyn and Tudor England. I highly recommend this novel to everyone who loves everything Tudor. -AMAZON REVIEW A Time Travelling Delight - What can I say about this delicious literary morsel but wow! Jumping right into the Tudor world without abandon, Beth eats up the past with a silver spoon and makes friends easily with one of the most fascinating and fashionable Tudor queen, Anne Boleyn. Twisting between past and present, this student of history lives every historians dream of watching infamous events unfold before her eyes. I loved every moment and can't wait for volume 2! 💕💕 - JANEL VANHIMBERGEN
