Amelia Pennington was the daughter of the Pennington family. Although their family was known for their generosity and open-minded beliefs, Amelia felt trapped by Boston society. She had dreams of becoming a doctor, unfortunately that wasn’t for respectable ladies in the 19th century.

Attacked by her professor who was after her rune stone, she’d barely gotten away from him. At first, she thought it was a nightmare, a hallucination…as she sat in the ER disoriented and not knowing where she was, reaching for a doctor who’d help her.

Dr. Rick Hauser, a combat veteran was now working at Massachusetts General. His work kept him grounded. He wasn’t sure what was going on, but knew this woman was about to up-end everything he’d been working toward.

A pure, and entertaining time travel romance. The intriguing journey between past and present opens a magical mix from this talented author. A must read!
