"Readers will rate highly ONLY TIME WILL TELL"
When she was seven, Courtney Moss' mother abandoned her,
leaving her with her grandmother in Virginia City,
Montana. Courtney's grandmother felt the child was an
intrusion and though she provided food and shelter, she
never displayed one ounce of love towards the sad little
girl. Courtney learned that love, if it ever exists, hurts.
Several weeks after her grandmother's funeral, Courtney is
back in Virginia City cleaning out the house instead of
fine-tuning her sketches for a job interview. In the attic
she finds a nineteenth century ball gown. Her friend Ryan
persuades her to wear it to the upcoming Victorian Ball.
At the gala Courtney becomes locked in a shed. When Heath
Sullivan frees her, she finds somehow that she went back in
time to 1864.
Heath and Courtney are attracted to one another, but she
rejects the notion of love and he believes he does not
deserve anyone's love. He believes he caused the death of
a friend, a runaway slave. Will time heal all wounds or
just add pain as neither person can take that last step
towards one another?
Time is not needed to know that time travel romance readers
will enjoy Sherry Lewis' latest tale. The scarred lead
couple makes for a fine story line as each slowly enters a
relationship that they distrust not because so much of the
other, but because of the baggage they carry. Though the
reason for the travel is weak and the adjustment facile,
readers will rate highly ONLY TIME WILL TELL because of the
delightful protagonists who deserve a lasting love.
