Book Description

Dr. Cassandra Reilly is surprised to find herself time-traveling again, this time to New York of 1853, accompanying the internationally acclaimed artist, Evie Johnston. Evie has funded the trip, explaining that she wishes to meet her ancestors, activists in the Underground Railroad. However, the beautiful painter has another agenda altogether.

When they arrive in the pre-Civil War city, Evie's deception embroils both her and Cassandra in the activities of the abolitionist revolutionaries, a situation fraught with danger, as well as unexpected romance. Cassandra struggles to keep history intact, and to keep herself and Evie from falling victim to a gang of human traffickers. All the while, each woman discovers how the past has a way of becoming all too personal and present, as they both fall under the spell of the time and people they meet.

Editorial Review:
The Time Heiress - Georgina Young-Ellis (2011)

Time-travelling scientist Cassandra Reilly is back in this sequel to The Time Baroness. This time, she is travelling to 1853 New York City to escort young artist Evie back in time to meet her abolitionist ancestors who were instrumental in the Underground Railroad prior to the Civil War. Unbeknownst to Cassandra, Evie has an agenda of her own, which ends up putting the time travellers in harm’s way and at risk for changing history as they frantically try to make their way back to the present day. As with the Time Baroness, I devoured this book in no time at all. The rich period details and careful character descriptions are so vivid you feel as if you have stepped back in time with Cassandra and Evie. The ending caught me a bit off-guard but after contemplating it since finishing the book, it seems fitting for this second installment of the Time Mistress series. (LEK)

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable! January 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brace yourself for another trip back in time. I was stunned by my journey into Jane Austen's England in Young-Ellis amazing novel, The Time Baroness. On this second adventure Dr. Cassandra Reilly agrees to return through the portal to the days preceding the Civil War. The Underground Railroad was a time of heroes and human traffickers. Young-Ellis sets her readers in the middle of the action and does not let up. The sights, sounds, and even the emotions of the time surround and engulf us. This is a book you will not easily forget. The Time Heiress is a way of looking back at how far we've come and how we traveled a portion of that dangerous journey. Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars adventure and romance January 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I want this and her first book to be put onto film! I want more adventures of Cassandra's time travel. Another book is in the works and I for one am looking forward to being swept away into another time and place. Georgina Young-Ellis's book The Time Heiress is a wonderful undertaking. It stands alone from her first book The Time Baroness, but is actually a series. I am thankful for that; as mentioned earlier I want more. Character and plot development is established with precision. Vivid description of even the smallest detail such as the flowers on a dress filled my mind with images of the Antebellum era. Wonderful endangerment and romance intertwine into Cassandra's visit into New York City of another time. Detailed research is obvious in descriptions of the city. Usually I can calculate the ending of a book, but I was surprised at the conclusion. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars could not put it down January 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How is it possible to be able to read a 'modern' book and yet be thrown into my favourite part of history, Jane Austen? Well this author has done it. I could not put it down and eagerly await other books in the same vein. In one way I knew what the ending would have to be, but in another way I wanted it to be different. I was caught up with the characters, and it is a really great read when you just want to 'get away from modern life' and lose yourself in a more gentle period. Highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars good read for history buffs January 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It set in the year 2122and time machines have been invented. A rich pop star wants to go back to the year1853 to meet her ancestors and winds up helping runaway slaves escape through the underground railroad. For fiction it had lots of historical facts.I truly enjoyed this book and the ending was totally unexpected. It was a love story with lots of drama. Absolutely recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great period detail, and love with consequences November 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've lived in New York since 1999, and my books are set in New York also, so I can't help having a special feeling about a book set in New York history. The BBC America series Copper, which covers the gritty side of New York around the Civil War era, is a must-watch in my household. I loved Gangs of New York (the book) as well. Thus my great pleasure that Georgina Young-Ellis has, in the same vein, and so vigorously, taken on pre-Civil War New York. This time, time-traveller Cassandra Reilly has someone to protect -- a 22nd-century celebrity artist named Evie who is paying richly for the privilege of visiting her ancestors. Evie is passionate and very very young at heart -- I wrote to Georgina in mid-read and said "She's such a loose cannon" -- and she can't help falling in love with another young artist, escaped slave Caleb Stone. Of course, there is some romance for Cassandra as well.

As always, Georgina excels at the inclusion of period detail, including geography, clothing, food, and stores (amusingly, Tiffany's jewelry store was then called Tiffany, Young, and Ellis). Music and literature make prominent appearances, as does author Herman Melville. There is not only emotional, but physical danger. There is a depiction of the difficulties of living with racial equality in a society that does not allow it. There is sex, and it is not sleazy and without consequences, as sometimes occurs in low-grade romantic books. This sex is meaningful: it leads to love and loss. There are characters tied to the previous novel, The Time Baroness. Also, someone I didn't like in that book justifies my negative opinion.

As previously, I really like the optimistic depictions of the 22nd century -- this is always my favorite element of Georgina's books, and I could read with great pleasure Cassandra's adventures in her own time.

I definitely recommend this book. On to the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Time Heiress December 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Didn't enjoy it as much as the first book. I found the relationship between the 2 women frustrating and the descriptive sex scenes unnecessary. I would give another 'Time Mistress' book a go though if one comes along in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from Georgina young Ellis January 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the Time Baroness I couldn't wait to read the next book and I wasn't disappointed. There again was the delightful descriptive text that made me feel as if I was really in New York in 1853. I could visualize the dresses and nearly taste the food :)
Looking forward to the next installment.

Even though I didn't read the first book in the series, I certainly will. The only question is which of the two books to read first, the beginning or the end. Read more

More About the Author

I live in New York City, with my artist husband and musician son. Though originally from the Southwest of the U.S., we love the atmosphere of this bustling city. We love to travel, and when I can't travel in body, I travel in my mind to the times and places that my heroine, Dr. Cassandra Reilly, visits in my series, The Time Mistress. In the first book, The Time Baroness, she time-travels to Jane Austen's England. In the second, The Time Heiress, she travels to pre-Civil War NYC. In both she encounters romance and danger!
