"A unique and enjoyable romantic time-travel mystery"

Jacynda Lassiter, a Time Rover, is sent to Victorian London in the year 1888 to retrieve a client. Jacynda's company is having difficulties and is taking more and more risks to make money. Jacynda is shocked to be sent into a time, that has been banned before now--the time of the Whitechapel murders by Jack the Ripper. After Jacynda arrives, she learns that Chris, another Time rover and her lover, has disappeared in this time. With the help of Dr. Alastair Montrose and Jonathan Keats, Jacynda finds out that Chris has been murdered, and that there is another person from the future loose in 1888. Jacynda has to tell Alastair the truth about herself, and, in return, Alastair later tells Jacynda about his own unique talents as a Transitive. Transitives, are shapeshifters, that can imitate anyone. Meanwhile, Jack the Ripper is committing his horrendous crimes, and mounting evidence points to Dr. Alastair Montrose as being Jack the Ripper.

SOJOURN is an enjoyable well-researched, time-travel fantasy with a unique premise and mystery and romance elements. Ms. Oliver creates a very different shapeshifter community, and the mystery is intriguing. While there is only light romance and two men are in love with the heroine, there is room for romance to bloom in subsequent books. I did get the feeling, that Ms. Oliver plans a continuation of this book, and I look forward to her next venture into this world.

Welcome to Whitechapel. The year is 1888.
Discovery is the ultimate risk...
for the shape-shifter
for the time traveler
for the madman who hunts them.

Victorian London harbors dark secrets. Shapeshifters weave skillful illusions, cloaking their identities while a killer stalks the unwary in WhiteChapel.

For Time Rover, Jacynda Lassiter, the mission is simple -- find an overdue 'tourist' and return him to 2057 before he alters history. For Dr. Alastair Montrose, the danger is discovery -- for himself and his kind. To prevail, they must outwit a madman whose legacy will endure for centuries.
