Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A prologue involving the 1815 salvaging of a "cursed" ship sets the pace for this rambling, often confusing, time traveler by the author of This Time Forever. After a lengthy decision-making process, aimed, it seems, at establishing the heroine's background and bona fides, PI and psychic Cara Edwards agrees to help find a 10-year-old boy who vanished during a field trip aboard a 19th-century schooner. Dressed as one of the crew, Cara attempts to recreate the events leading up to the boy's disappearance, only to find herself propelled to the year 1833 and into the arms of rakish captain Blake Masters. As Cara and Blake spend the next six months sailing the ancient seas searching for (and finding) the missing child, Cara uses her gift to help Blake come to terms with his horrific past, a past eerily connected to the present. Excessive theorizing about time travel and psychic abilities slows down the final pages and leads to a convoluted ending that stretches credibility to the limit.

Review

Bell, Book & Candle: "One of the best books I've read in a long time. Fantastic!!" 
Under the Covers: "...exciting, believable, finely crafted, and has a hero and heroine worth cheering for..." 
RT BOOK REVIEWS: ★★★★½ Don't pick up this book unless you plan to stay up all night: [Gillian Doyle writing as] Susan Leslie Liepitz draws you in deep with characters so real they might come knocking at your door. Though she'd never characterize herself as such, Cara Edwards is a psychic detective. During a period reenactment, a ten-year-old boy disappears on a restored 19th-century sailing ship and the boy's father turns to Cara. Fearing the media frenzy, Cara at first refuses to help but finds herself fighting off physical pain until she agrees to use her powers. Having taken the case, she tries another reenactment. 
On the Mystic, as Cara prepares for her turn at watch, the wall near her bunk opens. She enters the portal and walks through to 1833--still aboard the ship--where a storm is brewing. The command to "batten down the hatches" comes too late and Cara and Captain Blake Masters, a guest on the 1833 Mystic, are washed ashore. When Blake realizes Cara--even dressed as she is--is no young boy, he goes along with her tale of a young widow in search of her son. He is a true hero--very human in spite of being handsome; compassionate yet practical; and realistically frustrating at times. Gillian Doyle chooses words exquisitely in her sensual prose. The transitions in time are plausible and the author's take on how people perceive life after death touches the heart. This is a mystical story, woven well. Everything about it strokes the senses, giving the imagination a curl-your-toes workout.
