Summary

This is Book #1 of The Crosse Harbor Time Travel Trilogy

Historian Emilie Crosse dreamed of a love that would last forever. Who knew she'd have to sail across two centuries to find it?

When her ex-husband Zane Grey Rutledge showed up at her door with a Revolutionary War uniform that was part of his grandmother's estate, neither one suspected that their lives were about to change in ways they couldn't possibly imagine.

Swept back in time to 1776 where a nation is struggling to be born, Emilie finds herself torn between two men: Zane, her ex who still holds the key to her heart, and Andrew McVie, the Patriot hero of her long-ago dreams . . . .

Enjoyed but..

The characters were well written and I enjoyed the story. There was one aspect which spoilt it for me though, which was the ease by which they accepted the time travel. I didn't find it convincing. Other than that it was a good book.

Sweet Ending

This book started out quite slow - basically to build character and plot. After the first few chapters I started to get into it more. I really liked the idea of the story.....time travel and romance....it just didn't deliver the "wow" factor for me. I liked the main characters (Emilie and Zane) and enjoyed how they had to adapt to life in a different century. I also liked how early American History was intertwined in the story. I just wish the story had more pizzazz. It did, however, have a sweet ending!

The quality of the sound wasn't the greatest...I heard a lot of echoes - especially in the beginning (not sure if it was a download problem or with my device). The narrator got better as she went along. In the beginning her voice of Zane was poor. Her other voices were much better.

I would still say if you enjoy time travel/romances give this one a try when it goes on sale. If the second in the series becomes available I may give it a try. Sometimes second books are better than the first.

Good book, performed poorly.

What didn’t you like about Janine Hegarty’s performance?

The story is good, but listening to the reader is almost painful. She is trying so hard to enunciate every single word that it sounds choppy and unnatural. She's not very good at changing voices and Zane sounds like a woman with a deep voice. I have not finished the book and am considering returning this one and getting a hard copy to read instead.

Enjoyable way to renew my history.

Good flow and wonderful characters. I also liked the way the reader was kept wondering if Emily and Zane would return to the present time. Now I want a story about Andrew’s life in the 20th century.

Not a fan of the narrator

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed reading this book but not listening to it - I couldn't finish it listening to it because I didn't care for the narration. Fun easy read but not a book to listen to with this narrator.

Interesting

This book was very interesting. It drew you in and kept you very anxious to see what was happening next.

To simple

Maybe it was the way the narrator read the story. I felt like I was reading an elementary school book (if you leave out the sex that is) It was a cute story but I was expecting more.

okay but annoying!

The female was agressive, annoying and indecisive. The the male character was a bully and whiny. The reading was choppy and uninspired. Could have been a good story but there's too much that was unnecessary!

Well done!

A delightful story (beginning of no-cliffhangers trilogy) that sees our time travelers back to the time of the revolutionary war. Interesting! Something I especially enjoyed was Emily taking part in activities as she did. I didn’t care for her as a character - unusual for me! - but she was too often outspoken and rude.

A charming tale of historical time travel.

I love historical romance. I have also read voraciously in this genre. That being true I would rate this read as an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. The drawing of the characters seemed to remain superficial, and for me, I prefer character-driven stories where the characters have many levels slowly revealed, where you can almost relate to them like real people. This book didn't quite capture that level of depth for me. That's why I rated the overall and story categories as 4. For performance, I loved how the reader portrayed the characters with an Irish brogue, however, the lead male character's voice felt forced and wasn't believable. Every sentence from him sounded like a woman trying to do a man's voice, and not very convincingly. The lead female character in the reading of the tale lacked emotional depth. It sounded like the narrator was just reading. Yet in two of the less important characters, she captured the depth better. The 2 American characters from the current time period just sounded flat and dull by comparison. My largest disappointment was the narrator.
