Across Time (The Parallel Series Book 3) Kindle Edition
In a dangerous time before her own...a dangerous attraction. Amelie Besson is on the cusp of attaining the life she’s dreamed of—until she finds herself stuck in pre-war France, fifty years before her time. The country is about to be under German rule, but her most immediate problem is Henri Durand, the arrogant and infuriatingly handsome vineyard owner upon whom her survival depends. The fiercely protective Henri challenges everything Amelie holds true—particularly her hatred of the gift that brought her there in the first place. As the bond between them grows, Amelie will begin to wonder if the life she’s returning to is actually the one she wants, and if her connection to Henri might be strong enough to surmount any obstacle…even time itself.
*Across Time is Book Three in the Parallel Series and ends in a cliffhanger.

This is the third book in the Parallel series, telling the story of Amelie from the 1990s and Henri back in 1938 France and just like the first two I was not disappointed. It ends on a cliff hanger and I’m eagerly awaiting the next instalment.
O’Roark’s writing is flawless in telling this tale and as usual the character development is brilliant.
At first, it is a slow burn romance with a mystery. But more is the transformation of Amelies character. Whilst she lives in the 1990s with greater rights than women in the 30s, does she really?
As Henri challenges her and her pushover girlfriend tendencies the sexual tension rises between the two. But can things work between two from such different times?
I have read the first two books and whilst I recommend all readers do (because O’Roark has never written a bad story yet) you could read this one independently. Although when the follow on book becomes available I suspect it will link back to the first two.
Overall I highly recommend this book and the entire series.
An ARC was received for an honest review.
OMG i could not put th book down and same cas the second instalment. towards the end of the second book I realised tht that across time and parallel work hand in hand. Then all of a sudden the puzzel pieces fit together.
so I highly highly recomend to read parallel first if you are reading across time.
ive had a kindle for many years and never writen a revew. something about the story, characters and Elizabeth's writing stlye just took my breath away.
The series would have to be one of the best ive ever read.
I take me hat off to the talented author.

At no time did it say it was to be concluded. I will not recommend this to anyone. Waiting enthusiastically to the end only to have it spoilt. Disgrace.
Although I think I’ll prefer Parallel / intersect more .
Such good writing, perfection!!!! ❤️❤️
Amelie Besson gets to experience all things Henri, but it takes a while for him to show her his good side, and that’s certainly not why she traveled from 1987 back to 1938. Her deceased sister has been haunting Amelie's dreams, urging her to find Marie, Henri’s sister, and help her. Leaving all her modern conveniences but not knowing what her mission really is, Amelie takes the leap, lands in the Durand's barn, and finds herself staring down the business end of a shotgun.
Henri's sister, Marie, a fellow time traveler, quickly welcomes and embraces Amelie, but it’s a different story with Henri (see above shotgun statement). Henri has his reasons for not wanting Amelie in his time, but as the days go on, his coolness towards her begins to thaw. As bits and pieces are revealed in this fascinating, complex story and Amelie begins to understand her purpose for traveling to 1938, things get even more complicated as well as dangerous.
This is the only writer who can lure me away from contemporary romance and have me reading not only paranormal but historical romance and loving every second of it! Her gifted words are beautiful on the page and evoke such a wide array of emotion that I feel like I’m living every experience alongside the characters. I couldn’t get enough of Henri and Amelie, and I’m dying, I tell you.
Dying because, yes, this is not the end of their story. I really and truly despise a cliffie, but it's so worth it to have met Henri and Amelie and read the first part of their riveting, profound, heart breaking story, and I can’t wait for more! Alas, short of some way to coerce someone to put Across Eternity in my greedy little hands early, I’ll be eagerly awaiting the conclusion to their story in a few months with the rest of the romance world. So wait for the conclusion, if you must, but do not pass up the opportunity to read this hypnotizing, magical story about truly extraordinary characters!
