"From 2001 New York to 1542 Scottish Highlands - accept it as magic"

I just finished The Pleasure Master by Nina Bangs. What a fun time-travel! Kathy is "magic-ed" from 2001 New York to 1542 Scottish Highlands -- complete with her purse, cell phone, backpack of hairdressing supplies, and bag of children's toys (it was Christmas Eve). A lot of the toys are the motion sensor/action type -- you know, the flower that sways and sings when you push a button or move in front of it, things like that. Of course, people of over 400 years ago see that as witchcraft. And how do you explain hair mousse and curling irons? AND a cell phone that still dials modern-day New York. Try calling 911 and asking for help in this situation . . .

Mind you, if you like logical or scientific explanations for the means of time traveling, this will not suit you. In fact, the "deus ex machina" is not revealed until the epilogue, and is the weakest part of the story -- really I almost think it would have been better without the explanation. The reader can just accept it as magic.
