Release day: Secrets in Time
Today is the official release of Secrets in Time by Alison Stuart (ebook, Lyrical Press). Here’s the blurb:
When a seventeenth-century cavalier hurls himself over her garden wall, Doctor Jessica Shepherd is more angry than surprised. Although she is no stranger to military re-enactors, there is something different about Nathaniel Preston. If he is to be believed, something…or someone…has sent him forward in time from the midst of a civil war to the quiet English countryside of the twentieth century.
With time working against them, Nathaniel has to convince Jessica why fate brought them together before he ís forced to return to his own era and certain death in battle. Can the strength of love overcome all obstacles, even time itself?
Alison dropped by today to tell us little about this book:
I have always wanted to write a time travel story. My love of history stems from childhood and I devoured books like A Traveller in Time by Alison Uttley. In fact I’d go to sleep willing myself to wake up in another time. Fortunately I never did and I have discovered writing about time travel is much more convenient, not to mention pleasant. This particular story began as a writing exercise for a writing group I was involved. It lingered in the cyber sock drawer for a few years and I came upon it by accident. I fell in love with the characters and it just wrote itself. Time travel + my favourite period of history (English Civil War) = a fun story.
