My first thought as I started this book was that I noticed a couple of similarities between the Outlander series by Diana Gabladon but once I got further into the book, the similarities ended. I found this book to be a very nice surprise from what I was expecting as the concept of time travel has been done. This author has found a way to bring a fresh and interesting twist to traveling through time and I really enjoyed this book, in fact, it was difficult to put down!

Felicia Sanchez has her life was in order when a freak accident caused her to fall into a past world full of the unexpected. With the help of a nutty but easy-to-love professor and an orphan girl, Felicia not only causes a splash in this new world but manages to vastly help the friends that she makes in more than one way.

I particularly enjoyed how Felicia was not afraid to voice her opinion and show her intelligence even during a time when this behavior in women was frowned upon.

With an unexpected ending, this book will not disappoint!

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
From the moment I started reading Clockwork Catherdral I
was drawn into it. The author Heather Blackwood does a
remarkable job of describing situations, and did careful
research about the time it was set in. Four stars and recommended.

On her way home from a typical day, Felicia Sanchez suddenly finds herself in another time and place. After coming to terms with the fact that she is no longer in her time, she discovers other differences that prove she is also not in the same world.

Seamus Connor, an Irish immigrant/professor, vows to help Felicia and do what he can to try to get her home.

I really enjoyed this book, it had me turning pages (or scrolling on my Kindle) quickly to find out what happened next. Looking forward to the next book to find out what happens next!

Format: Kindle Edition
The main three characters are Felicia: modern-day medical student who stumbles through a time rip, the Professor: Seamus Connor who is intrigued by all that's happening, and Hazel: a street urchin who comes to hold a special place in both their hearts. I loved all three of the main characters, and the inclusion of Mr. Grey, who is mysterious and secretive.

We meet Felicia in modern-time (which, in this case, is 2015). When an accident happens, Felicia goes to help, being as she's a medical student trying to become a doctor. But something happens. When her vision clears, everything's changed. As it stands, she's sent back in Pre-Civil war time. At first, she won't believe it. They must just be recreationists playing out their parts thoroughly well, right? Wrong. In a race against time, these four individuals must figure out why the time rips are happening, and how to send Felicia home before something terrible happens.

I really liked the author's writing style and how she drew me in from the very first page. It was fairly easy to read all three main characters' thoughts. They each had their own personality.

I truly enjoyed this book! I knocked a star off only because of my confusion on how things worked. Even when all the scientific and mechanical questions were answered, it was still hard to understand what was going on and why it was happening. But other than that, I thought it was wonderful, the historical aspects dead-on, and the lively characters a joy to read about.

I hope this isn't the end, because I felt like there were so many questions still unanswered. And I want more of this story and these characters.

Before I begin, I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

"She would never see anyone she loved again. Trapped in a strange past with no money, no family and no way to make a living, she would be like a piece of debris, cast up by the tide."

Aside from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, I haven't really read much time-traveling romances or, actually, just time-traveling books in general so this is all pretty unfamiliar ground for me. Imagine my delight when I read this book and found myself sinking fast and deep into a story packed with action, mystery, betrayal, murder, political intrigue and romance! Yep, this one's got it all!! Definitely familiar ground now and my type of book!!!! *rubs hands gleefully*

Our heroine, Felicia Sanchez, is a medical student and on her way home, rams straight into a ripping time hole and lands in New Orleans, 1857. She, of course, is confused and bewildered about her surroundings, especially since many landmarks don't match up to what she usually sees. What I love so much about this part is Heather's detailed writing style about the differences Felicia sees in the clothing, architecture, and speaking manner. It was extremely gratifying to see the differences being compared and the reactions of both Felicia and Seamus to one another's remarks.

"The world was different. Every street and every shop looked different. The burrito restaurant where she often bought lunch, Mel's Coffee Shop, Pyewocket's Books, all were gone. In their places were strange shops with old-fashioned people moving in and out."

I love Felicia's character. She has the perfect mix of wit, intelligence, beauty, and charm. She isn't vain or a workaholic, and she has strong morals and values.
