Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

Kate Morton is a master at pulling many stories together while keeping her readers in the dark until the very end. Reader Caroline Lee then adds to the mystery with her wonderful performance.

I have read the hard cover books about three times and the audio books at least 4 as well. I really love this series, as does my 49 year old daughter. The series on television is terrifical, but I will continue to listen to the audiobooks. My eyesight is failing so audiobooks may be my only option. 🤗🤗🤗

Liberty, my wisecracking horse, our old friends Cam, Tommy, Freedom, and I are off to meet some super-brave soldiers in the year 1775. Yep, that’s right. We’ll be visiting with the underdog heroes who fought for American independence, against all odds - and won! But not before eight very real years of danger and uncertainty. Be a part of Rush Revere’s crew as we rush, rush, rush into a time when British rule had become a royal pain, and rebellion was in the air.
