In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.
Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.
Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever
Time travel is not my favorite subject but I've decided to take a chance and get my hands on this book. There are so many people out there raving about this book and I knew it must be good.
Another thing that I found interesting was the way Etta's mind worked. In some points of the book definitely in the beginning I thought it was interesting how she interpreted things in a musical way. I'm not even sure how to explain that without you readers checking out book, if you read it maybe you would understand what I mean. Plus I don't want to give out spoilers and ruin the book for you.
I loved that there was so much going on that there was never a dull moment for me. There was so much twists and turns going on with each passage there was something else in that world to overcome. I swear it was also hard for me to put the book down. I loved that this book was unpredictable.
I thought that ending was interesting, and unfortunately its a bit of a cliffhanger. Again as much as I would like to talk about that ending I simply can't without spoilers so I'll end my review here. I can't wait to see what is in store for Etta, Nicholas, Sophia and the other characters.
