MY THOUGHTS:
           I LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK!!  The best time travel/romance story I have ever read.
The thoughts and feelings of Liz and her love for books made me feel right at home the minute I opened the book. The author has an exceptional talent in her writings. The thoughts, actions and personality of the characters flow so seamlessly throughout the book in a beautiful way. It is like A.M. Heath was inside my head as she wrote this fun-filled, humorous yet intriguing and challenging story.
What I liked is - she weaves the gospel in throughout the story, Liz's thoughts on reading mirror my own, the way Liz goes into time to live out what she thinks is a life so much better than the one she lives is written in an amazing way. It opens your eyes to the fact that what we think we want just might make you realize and grasp the truth that what you had to begin with is the right life after all. 

Blessings,

I received this book as a gift and all opinions are all my own.




Liz Cooke has two problems in life: Her social media is filled with brewing political conflict and her idea of a perfect man seems to have gone extinct a century ago. Inspired by the contents of an antique trunk, Liz dreams she time-travels to 1885. As she sets out to enjoy the Victorian era in all its glory, armed with knowledge gleaned through historical novels and period dramas, will she find the past to be all that she thought? And does the right man for her exist only in her dreams or has he been in her life all along?
Loosely inspired by Alice in Wonderland, A.M. Heath brings you a fun read chock-full of humor and whimsy with a special message for the avid reader in all of us.

  2. This really makes me want to read this book! (Not that I wasn't already excited about it before :D) I think a lot of readers/writers (whether they admit it or not) dream of different lives than the ones God has already given them so this book seems like it has a very good/relevant moral. I love the last line in your review: "It opens your eyes to the fact that what we think we want just might make you realize and grasp the truth that what you had to begin with is the right life after all."
    Thank you for the review!
