"Historical and futuristic romance all in one delightful package!"
Imagine this...You're minding your own business, walking
the dog when you bump into Mr. Tall, Dark and Mysterious.
The next thing you know, you open your eyes and you and
your dog are 400 years in the past. What happened? Are
simply a raving lunatic as the people around you seem to
believe? That is what Dr. Kari Lunne would like to know,
because it has happened to her.
Meanwhile 800 years in the future Aidan Torrance, a
historian who doesn't believe in rules, has just
the accidental side-effect his little shopping trip in the
twentieth century has had. Now he has no choice but to
sneak back in time once again and rescue the irritating
woman.... all right, all right and the blasted dog too!
I thoroughly enjoyed Patricia Crossley's journey through
the past and the future. The writing shows great
flexibility in her ability to write in both time periods.
was particularly intrigued by her entirely too plausible
vision of the future from the medical advances and change
of speech patterns to the self cleaning floor tiles (I
would love a set of those!). The two main characters are
both very independent and both have their own agenda.
by learning to compromise do they realize that perhaps
their goals aren't so very different after all.
A JOURNEY'S END is both historical and futuristic romance
in one delightful package. If you like reading time
romances then this is a book for you.
