Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon &- the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.
Mrs. Lassley's Review
I have been reading some amazing books lately, but this one tops all of them. I am not normally someone who likes to read about time travel, but I will definitely be reading this series. For those of you who do not know, the author, Kerstin Gier, is from Germany, and all of the books have been published in that country. Ruby Red came out this year in the U.S., and we are waiting, some of us not patiently, for Sapphire Blue to come out in October. And as I finished this book, I am thinking I need to learn German so that I can finish this series. :-)
