Sarah has just come out of a violent encounter with her boyfriend. Traumatized and afraid, she travels to where her great-grandmother, Sarah, married after reading her diary and becoming intrigued by it.

Sarah finds herself transported back in time to the night her grandmother was to meet the man she was to marry. Henry and his friend Joshua are waiting for Rachel and her friend Cath.

The women have been attacked and Cath has been killed, Sarah is mistaken for Cath but she doesn’t tell anyone who she really is.

The story is quite complicated at times, trying to remember that the small town believes that Sarah is Cath but Rachel and Joshua know she isn't.

Joshua falls hard for Sarah and she returns the feelings but she can't tell him she is from the future because it might change history. But he is totally puzzled by her mode of dress and her suggestive way of talking.

I am a fan of Janet Quinn's books and I did like this one but I did think it was too long and that Joshua and Sarah kept falling out because she wouldn't agree to marry him. They had this conversation too many times without Sarah giving him a reasonable explanation as to why she wouldn't.

I loved both of the characters but wanted to knock their heads together to see if they would understand each other and throw caution to the winds!

Rachel and Henry who were the other two important characters to this story did get married, but Henry was rather pompous! He would have been horrified if he knew Sarah was his great granddaughter!!

Good story well worth a read but too long for me as I felt that the story could have been told in 300 pages rather than 400 pages.
