Told in alternating first person points of view between Alexis and Ezra, the man who first meets her upon her arrival in his time, the story plays out as Alexis initially denies the reality of what has happened to her but must finally accept it, however unhappy she is.
Pivotal to that acceptance is Ezra, who finds he can’t get the shamefully brazen and poorly behaved (for the time) girl out of his mind, even after she makes it clear to him that she does not want his help.
Now for all its paranormal trappings, ‘The Carriage’ is first and foremost a love story so it should come to no one’s surprise that Ezra and Alexis become, over time, a couple. That’s not a knock against the novel, it is merely part and parcel of the dominant genre. What is exceptional is the way in which the author handles the not inconsiderable issue of a Victorian gentleman developing feelings for a young woman (by the time’s standards) that acts, behaves, and dresses more like a crazed prostitute than a woman of any real quality (again, by Victorian standards). Ezra is at first intrigued by the wild creature that has almost literally been thrown into his life and then gradually is more and more intrigued by her.
Of course Ezra is not entirely human, so he has his own reasons for being able to see past the rough exterior that everyone else is limited to seeing in Alexis. The less said about that though, the better in terms of a review!
I am not typically an avid reader of romance stories but even if ‘The Carriage’ did not contain the paranormal elements that it does (and very effectively at that), I would be unabashed in my enjoyment of and affection for this novel. The quality of the writing is top notch and the author’s love of the era is clear in the details and effortless description of the people, places, and the period’s social norms. I recommend it highly.
With vivid details and stylistic story telling, Ms. Baxter delivers a heartwarming story about love and bravery that transcends through time.
I was anxious to read this book, as I do enjoy a good time-travel romance. The premise is unique, where the time travel is concerned, and the main character is quite believable in her inability to easily fit in the past. It never works for me when a character is thrown into another time and just carries on without missing a beat. The love story develops naturally with believable discomfort and 'fits and starts', in an unnatural and challenging setting, and there are nice twists to their story. I would like to have seen more of time spent on developing the characters, on Alexis' challenges in the past, and on the challenges they faced together, and so I am hoping the author will one day expand this story a bit from it's current length.
I give this book 5 fangs (loved loved loved it and can't wait for the next one)
The year is 2014.
Alexis is a rude, self centered young lady that is constantly mean to her sister Brooke. Alexis is meeting her sister for a carriage ride through Central Park arguing nonstop one thing leads to another and soon Brooke is uncorking a small vial and saying some weird words Alexis has no idea what's going on...
When Alexis wakes up she is in London the year is 1870.
Enter Ezra a tall dark and handsome man who swoops in to help Alexis. However things never go according to plans no matter how well intentioned.
Ezra has secrets he's protecting and Alexis soon discovers sometimes love really is the answer.
The carriage is a sweet story about growing up, friendship, secrets, family and most of all love.
I came to simply adore Alexis even though at the start I was ready to slap some manners into her! She's strong and smart and not ready to let any propriety stand in her way although it may get her in a little trouble. Hey no one said time travel was easy.
As for Ezra well that's another story he's a classic hero. Kind, generous and with a penchant for saving Alexis what's not to love I'm smitten. Although he may have secret or two, that just makes him that much more interesting.
I can't wait for the next one, and recommend this to anyone that loves any kind of romance;)
