An enjoyable romp with a pirate lost to history, an historian marooned in time, and a strong cast of characters. The author has a beautifully lyrical way with words.
Penny is stuck in the past – and this is where the book differs from many time travel books – she has been there five years. In that time she has adapted to a world that is not kind to headstrong women, and forged a lonely life on the island. The author builds the world with skill, bringing in food and house problems, storms and society in a well balanced and interesting way. The research is never obvious, but draws in some fine details that help picture the life people lead.
A lonely woman and a gorgeous pirate seems like a match made in the movies. But Penny is no pushover, and Will has to earn her affection and trust. This relationship is intense and focused, and the author delves into many emotions on both sides, touching on anxiety and trust issues. The secondary characters are also all strong and play important parts in the plot.
All in all, a well-researched and highly enjoyable time travel novel, where the focus is on the intensity of the relationship that develops between Jenny and William. Full of action, romance, danger and with some lovely comedic moments, this book will have you gripped until the end.
