Synopsis: Grace Nicholls has a few reasons for wanting to turn back the clock … although an archaeological dig at a Bronze Age settlement on the Yorkshire moors is not what she had in mind. But encouraged by her best friend Tabitha, that’s exactly where she finds herself.
Professor Duncan McDonald is the site director and his earnest pursuit of digging up the past makes him appear distant and unreachable. But when a woman on the site goes missing, it seems that his own past might be coming back to haunt him once again.
As they dig deeper, Duncan and Grace get more than they bargained for – and come to realise that the past is much closer than either of them ever imagined …
My review: I love Choc Lit books and I enjoy time travel stories so this was just the perfect book for me.
I loved the characters, really well written and the story interwove past and present seamlessly and with great pace. I enjoyed the twists as well. I’ve read enough books to have seen the main one a mile away but nope still managed to fall for it.
There’s redemption in place for crabby archaeologist Duncan, the end of the grieving period for Grace as the two come together on a dig in Yorkshire. There’s even a bit of detective work in here too.
It’s a lovely warm read for the winter days that just don’t seem to be going. Thoroghly enjoyed it.
