When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life – a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.
Michele is soon leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves – a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives.
My Review: OMG I can't even express the LOVE I have for this book. Alexandra has some serious writing skills. I read Suspicion by her and just loved it. Then I noticed she had written this series and well it had to be just as amazing right? Well lucky me it was!
Okay so Michele is your typical teenage girl. She goes to school, has awesome girlfriends. strange dreams, and breakup stuff. Michele has had this odd dream for the longest time now, and she hasn't an idea as to what it all means.
Then morning comes and she mentions it to her mom and talk about her breakup. Now Michele has like the best relationship with her mom. They are close and happy with their lives, and I loved reading about it. Though all this happiness is about to change. Its lunch time and she is about to leave school to catch lunch with her mom. Though a police car shows up instead and brings Michele some tough news....
Then her life is going to change even more. Her grandparents are her new guardians. Though it shouldn't be right since they didn't have a relationship with her or or mom ever. So why did her mom leave them as her guardian? And how can she just leave her cozy home and friends behind in California for New York. Oh and if that ain't bad, wait till you read about what happens when she does get to New York! Boy do I hate her snobby grandparents.
Besides all that, Michele gets more surprises. The key of her dreams shows up. Then there is a draw with a diary inside and thus Michele learns of time travel......and perhaps the answers to things in her life....
Okay so hopefully I didn't spoil anything, which I don't think I really did. But damn I just loved this book and well I could really spoil the crap out of it and that may not go so well with some readers.....So just pick up this book and enjoy!
