Summary

He's from 1892 England; she's in a small library in 2017. And that's just the start of their troubles.

Emme never meant to stay in Maine. She'd come only to find a librarian for her Gram's library, a custodian for the collection of mysterious books she'd promised to protect. On a dark, wintery night, alone in the library, she takes her first glance into one of the antique novels and finds herself transported to 1892 England staring into the eyes of handsome and dashing hero Jack Ridgewell. As each chapter passes she learns you can truly fall in love with a character in a book, that book boyfriends are real and Emme must choose between the real world, and his.

When the last page is read he's gone and Emme feels the cold loneliness of lost love. Will she find Jack again, or will their love be forever lost? The answer lies within the pages....

Contains mature themes.

Great premise but...

...what a disappointing execution! Some of the storytelling made me cringe...discussing yoga pants with a man from the 19th century? A man who, despite being from the 19th century, starts sentences with “wow”, and who doesn’t mind having sex with a woman who he’s somehow fallen helplessly in love with after meeting a handful of times. Not to mention she is the most shallow, unlovable character ever. I don’t usually post negative reviews (if you have nothing positive to say...) but this book was truly awful. Sorry!

Grand!

time-travel, England, Maine, romantic

Completely out of nowhere Emme's life is thrown into more disorder than she could have believed possible. After escaping the cold of Maine and going to college in Berkeley, she gets the call that her beloved grandmother who is her only family is critically ill. Too soon Emme makes a promise to grandmother as she is dying and finds that life is seriously weird. With no warning or instructions she finds the library's hidden secrets and totally unexpectedly falls into a book that leads to time travel!
The story explores the sisterhood of librarians who are the keepers as well as Emme's confusing time travels to the same man several times. A great read for a blustery afternoon.
Piper Goodeve is the voice artist who gives excellent voice to the characters.

This was a very good book.

I really liked this book. I became emotional during some of the sad parts. I thought they would find a way to be together in the end. I wish Jack would of found his ultimate happiness. It still seemed like he didn't get it.
