I loved this book! It has all my favorite things: great writing,a compelling plot, historical fiction, and magic! After Hope Walton's mother is killed in an earthquake, she accepts an invitation to visit her family in Scotland. There she discovers that her mother's family belongs to a secret society of time travelers, and that her mothe ris not dead! She has been trapped in 12th century London in the court of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Eleanor is as feisty as you might imagine, and Thomas Becket is a wicked, wicked man! Great fun!
"Instantly engaging, constantly suspenseful, ultimately poignant and satisfying. Loved it "--Diana Gabaldon, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Outlander series
When fragile, sixteen-year-old Hope Walton loses her mom to an earthquake overseas, her secluded world crumbles. Agreeing to spend the summer in Scotland, Hope discovers that her mother was more than a brilliant academic, but also a member of a secret society of time travelers. And she's alive, though currently trapped in the twelfth century, during the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine. Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Passing through the Dim, Hope enters a brutal medieval world of political intrigue, danger, and violence. A place where any serious interference could alter the very course of history. And when she meets a boy whose face is impossibly familiar, she must decide between her mission and her heart--both of which could leave Hope trapped in the past forever.
