I couldn't even get hung up on the language aspects, plot or technical aspects of how the book was written etc.
It was pure love story-a book that takes us on the journey of how a prehistoric man tenderly and fiercely loved a girl who traveled back through time to find herself in his arms. It was incredible to read the simplicity of Ehd's perspective somehow capture the depth of loving someone beyond yourself.
This book will give you the feeeeels (the good kind)
DO NOT let the time travel aspect put you off!!!
Elizabeth or Beh is a modern young woman who finds herself in an extremely different reality & has to adjust in order to survive.
Ehd the hero is the caveman with limited language & communication abilities but with a heart of unlimited love.
He accepts all of Beh's quirks even if her constant noise making gives him a headache & her behaviour is nothing like the women of his past tribe; he still cares for, protects & provides for Beh. Why? Because she is his mate & it's his duty. Ehd's devotion to Beh is beautiful & moving. The anguish he feels when Beh is injured & when their daughter Lah is sick is heart-breaking.
I cried at the end when Ehd & Beh laid down together for the last time. They loved each other so much.
I really really liked & admired Beh. although you never got her POV she stuck it out & made the best of her situation. Anyone who went thru what she did would've totally freaked. But when given the opportunity to leave, she stood by her man.
Ehd I adored. He unwavering devotion to Beh & their family was so moving. He had no problems giving or receiving love he actually welcomed his relationship with Beh (unlike so many so called alpha male heroes these days).
If you are looking for a unique, moving love story then read this book
It's all from the perspective of the caveman Ehd and this makes it pretty funny. Ehd does not speak and gets annoyed with the constant noises coming out of Beth's mouth. The fact that you don't see Beth's point of view means the reader has to work out for themselves what is happening in her head, and this is part of the fun of reading this book.
Ehd is not idealised at all. Beth finds him smelly and uncouth at first. She spends a lot of time trying to get Ehd to wash in the lake and clean his teeth which he resists. Ehd spends a lot of his time trying to 'put a baby inside' Beth then sooks when she hits him on the nose for it.
This is one of these books that will make you miss your bedtime. I wanted to give it six stars. There are explicit sex scenes so not for younger readers.
I liked the lack of speak and how the characters had to rely on different forms of communication throughout the book. The ending was lovely and really moved the book from a good read to a wonderful read.
I was a bit wary about the premise of the book at first, but the relationship between the two of them grows sweetly and the reader's interest is sustained. I didn't mind that the explanation of how/why the events of the story took place was a bit cheesy and predictable. That's not the point of the story. I really liked the ending, in fact.
Take a chance on this book, like I did, and I hope you will be pleasantly surprised like I was.

THIS IS THE BEST!!!
I never thought a book with so few words (Like four) would be sending my heart a pitter patter.
Yes, I kid you, not this epic love story like has four entire words throughout but its the language of love contained between these pages that ultimately spoke to my heart.
Transcendence is a time travel romance that crosses the divide of ages and struck so deep and what shouldn't have worked just did.
A beautiful heartfelt narrative that tells the story of a modern day girl and prehistoric caveman.
Ehd and Beh two individuals brought together by the hand of fate but bound as one by the deepness and purity of there emotional connection.
This is their story after Ehd discovers his Beh trapped in his hunting pit.
Told entirely from Ehd POV: I laughed, loved and cried like a baby as I traversed this journey
alongside these two young lovers as they forged a path of life together in a story older than time itself.
God did I bawl here!!! Deep Breath!!!
This tale dug its talons in deep and will that will stay with me long after I closed that final page.
This is now one of my most favourites reads ever and OMG!!! we are getting a novella from Beh POV also.
BEST NEWS EVER!!!
Do yourself a favour if you read one romance book this year let it be this one.
All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
The grammar is spot on and the idea is very clever. It's moving and sexy, with a lot of humorous parallels to modern day relationships thrown in which had me chuckling. Reference was made to the female lead crying for no reason, and the male lead keeping his head down, literally, and trying to fix it to no avail bless him! ;) The noise, (her talking), driving him mad was funny...men really do have a completely different outlook on everything...it's genetic! It's highlighted in many ways in this book, which had me belly laughing, whilst at the same time it was weirdly touching. There was also some tension and drama thrown in as well, so a bit of everything really. The explanation as to the whys and wherefores was a bit far fetched, but it's a story...a story that's well thought out and well written to boot.
Prior to biting the bullet and downloading this, I hadn't read anything by this author, but now I wish I'd given it a go sooner. I've already downloaded the first short story in the Evan Arden series, Otherwise Alone and I have high hopes. Think I've found another author to add to my brill list. Great! ;)
What a unique story! I was completely riveted by it.
Told completely from the POV of Ehd (except for the epilogue), the solitary caveman, who has been alone for many years after losing his family and community to a fire. He finds a young woman in the hole he dug to trap animals. She’s completely alien to him from the noises she makes with her mouth to the clothes that she wears. All he knows is that she is beautiful and he is delighted to finally have a mate but, more than that, a life companion. Slowly and steadily, she overcomes her fear of him and learns to trust him, love him, and show him ways to improve his chances of survival out in the wilderness. They somehow transcend the barriers of communication and differences to fall deeply in love and live a full life.
The reader is completely mystified as to how Elizabeth or Beh (as Ehd calls her) comes to be in the hole (until much later in the book when you start getting an idea of how she came to be there). Through Ehd’s description of her actions and reactions to him and the world around them, you get an idea of what she’s trying to communicate to him. She actually sounds like a very resourceful young woman. Being in Ehd’s head is enlightening. For all his primitive ways, he is an intelligent man, caring and protective. He quickly realises what a gift Beh is in his lonely life.
Such an amazing, original story. I absolutely adored it!
