A Train Through Time Publisher's Summary

College teacher Ellie Standish thinks she's on a sleek modern train heading to a conference on women's studies in Seattle, but she awakens from a night's doze to find herself on a bizarre historical train full of late Victorian era re-enactors who refuse to come out of character. When the leader of the group-handsome, green-eyed Robert Chamberlain-finally convinces her the date is indeed 1901, a skeptical Ellie rejects any eccentric theories of time travel and presumes she is smack dab in the middle of a very interesting historical dream.

She turns the directorial reins of her dream over to smitten and willing Robert, only to realize that dreams cannot last forever. Someday, she must wake up to reality, though Ellie no longer has any idea what reality is. She only knows that Robert must play an important part in her future. But how can he... if he's only a figment of her imagination or worse yet... a man who belongs to an era long past?

    Stephen Sadler reluctantly attends the Seattle wedding of Robert Chamberlain to Ellie Standish, the woman who had captured his interest. There he says goodbye to the woman he thought he had fallen for. Only a few weeks later while traveling on a train, Stephen is confronted by the vision of a strange wild-haired woman in a pair of snug-fitting trousers called "jeans" who claims she doesn't know where she is or how she came to be on his train - until she sees the date on the newspaper, that is.

    Annie St. John and her sister, Marie, decide that the three-day train ride from Chicago to Seattle to catch their Alaskan cruise was a bit too much, and they swear that next time, they'll fly. But “a bit too much” doesn't begin to describe what they find when they wake up from a short doze on their sleek modern train. Over a hundred years before, Rory O'Rourke heads back to Seattle from a photo shoot in Montana on the Oriental Limited.
