Sypnosis from Goodreads:

In one devastating night, Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has travelled not just miles but years from home.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods – a powerful family in the Colonies – and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, his passenger, can find.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveller who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to their target, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home forever.

My Review:

This book had long been on my TBR, I was excited for when I would read it, and when a friend said he was going to re read it I was like “I’ll read it with you!I often buddy read with this amazing friend, and I know this had long been a favourite of his, and I was definitely hooked from the word go! I loved the writing style, everything flowed so perfectly and flawlessly! At the same time, there was SO much amazing time travel happening, which I freaking loved! It was honestly going in the TARDIS, we were thrust into one era and then right into another! The writing was packed full emotions, I felt like I was going through everything Etta and Nick were! Oh my gosh, both characters are amazing and my heart was with them all the way, through all the emotions, and the plot twists! And I’m adamant that the book felt like an instrumental epic, I could feel the violin undertones throughout! Definitely a memorable read that’ll be going into my all time favourites, cannot wait to read Wayfarer!

Happy reading πŸ™‚
