I still cannot give it above a three star but it was more interesting. I find it hard to believe the other reviews after actually reading the book. But, I believed them enough to buy all four books even before reading the first one, much to my disappointment.
I found the main characters, Sophie & Emma to be shallow, self-centered, weak, uninteresting women especially considering they are supposed to be from this time period.
The actual history in the book is really great & very interesting. Makes you want to read more on the civil war and the events leading up to the Lincoln assination.
It also invites the reader to wonder what you would actually do if you were in a position to actually change history.
Possibly the third in the series is better yet.
The only problem might be with how quickly both Emma and the main male character, Clayton, accept the "I'm a time traveler" plot. I realize that it cannot take too long for a character to adjust to something like this in a book that is only a few hundred pages in length (even if it were longer it would soon become tiresome for them to always "freak out" about the situation). I also thought Clayton's reaction to Emmaa's 21st Century technology a bit unrealistic. He did not seem to really react to Hannah's iPod, the ear buds, or the music she played for him. He did not "freak out".
All-in-all, this is a good continuation of the series and I can not wait to begin reading the next book in the series.
The story shifts from Sophie and Jamie in the lead roles though they still get a huge amount of page time. This story focuses on Sophie's younger sister, Emma Wellington and Richard's younger brother, Clayton Madden. Neither of them are like their siblings in personality and character. Sophie was studious and driven while Emma is shallow and a flighty commit-o-phobe. Clayton is a respected member of government close to the president and is now the responsible sibling since his brother never came to terms with what happened to their family.
Emma lives in the present and life is not very good with her sister and brother and law missing/presumed dead. She continues with her interests- dancing, shopping, friends and flirting even while she worries about how she's going to deal with the change in financial situation and missing her family. She is being watched by a guy in a car so obviously the FBI wonders if she had something to do with the disappearance. Then one night after shopping, she tumbles through time and ends up in a carriage house in 1863 Washington DC.
Clayton is smitten by the oddly-dressed and odd mannered woman whom he finds on his premises. Before he can make sense of things, Andrew scares her and off they go chasing her through the streets. She sprains her ankle and now she is in his care.Read more ›
I like the idea of time-travel romance, the dilemma of stay or return (if that option is available). I particularly liked the revealing of Lincoln's death to Clayton, one of Lincoln's cabinet.
Emma and Sophie (from the present) act like hysterical, spoilt children. They go shopping, they go to a party, they get slightly injured so they have to be carried, they have migraines and, in a childish pique, they go out for an early morning ride when it's dangerous (of course, the men didn't tell them it was any more dangerous then usual and only forbade them to leave the house) and get kidnapped. When they are reprimanded (like children), they tearfully declare they'll never do anything against their dear husbands' advice again. Tell me what century these girls were raised in anyway?
