When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life – a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.

Michele is soon leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves – a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives. - Goodreads.com


Some books you just fall in love with, and this is one of them.  I thoroughly enjoyed this story.  It had adventure, it had an interesting time travel element, and it had a touching romance.  I loved the characters in this story, especially Michele, as she was strong, self-sufficient, and smart. 

There were so many details in this book, historically, and I was amazed at the amount of research the author must have done to make these different time periods and places come to life.  She did a phenomenal job with this. It gave the novel a vibrancy that was riveting.

I loved seeing how well she was able to tie in everything together so completely.  The book will apparently have a sequel and I am so bummed that this book just came out, because that means I'm going to have to wait so long for the sequel to come out!!  I can't take it!

I highly recommend this book.  I loved it,loved it, loved it!
