"Will the power of their love will be strong enough to return them to their own time?"

For long-time married couple, Dawn and Travis Nightingale, life has interfered with their love and in response they've decided on a divorce. Before they can announce this to their nearly grown children, the kids strand them on the family owned Florida Everglades island with the hope they will resolve their differences and get back together. That alone might have worked, as by that afternoon Dawn and Travis make love in the ruins of what seems to be a long forgotten temple on the island. But as they complete their lovemaking, the stones around them come to life and the pair is thrown thousands of years into the past, substituting for a set of star-crossed lovers, Weohi and Muraco.

Once in the past, Dawn and Travis are mistaken for the lovers, and so must contend with Weohi and Muraco's problems as well as trying to resolve their own differences. Of course the real issue is whether the power of their love will be strong enough to return them to their own time. There are serious moments in the book and amusing ones as well. For one thing, their son used popular song titles in his note to his parents and to carry the theme along, similar titles are used as the chapter headings.

Set predominantly in the distant past of a lost Toltec and Florida Indian society, THE POWER OF LOVE is a well-written time-travel love story -- a story of a couple rediscovering both the past and their own love for each other. I do recommend it.

Time is running out for Travis and Dawn.

On an Indian temple mound, they stumble into a dark and very distant past. They must learn to perform an ancient Mayan ritual, or die like star-crossed lovers in the indian legend Travis learned as a child.
