This book was well written and entertaining, with a likeable hero and heroine. It was an interesting concept to include Louis Riel and the Métis Rebellion in the story, as it seems more common to include Native Americans from the American west. The author illustrated the adjustments the heroine had to make to living in the past and the various prejudices she encountered, as well as the plight of the Indigenous peoples, Métis, soldiers and settlers that made up the society in which she found herself.
The romance evolved slowly and realistically. The overall pace of the book was even, both the highs and lows of life in that time were depicted, and the balance between the romance and the plot was fairly even. There was explicit sex in the book, but it was quite mild and not a large component of the book. This was by no means a hot erotic work. Anyone expecting either a very clean or a very erotic work will likely be hugely disappointed. This book has stood the test of time but it has a traditional feel to it.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes traditional time-travel romances that are well written, with attention to characterization and setting.
This book gives a lot of Canadian history that is probably new to the American reader & with all of the twists & turns holds the reader in suspense until the very end. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys this type of reading during this period in history.
First of all, I really enjoyed this book. It had realistic characters and great descriptions of both friendly and romantic relationships. I don't know anything about Canadian history, but based I know of the United States west, this seemed accurate.
Aside from the basic premise of time travel, there were a few other elements of magical thinking, but it seemed more historic than fantasy. The heroine's frustration with the lack of so many modern comforts (running water, electricity, indoor plumbing, etc) confirmed my opinion that time travel, even if it was possible, is not something I long for.
There were some typos, which hopefully will be corrected (I read this on my kindle).
I can honestly recommend this book as an interesting historic romance with time travel elements. You may learn a bit more about western Canadian history, and, since the heroine is a doctor, there are some medical elements, as well.
By the way, it has changed my mind about time travel romances. In the future, I won't dismiss these automatically.

Aside from the enjoyable historical element I found the developing romance between Miles and Paige was set at a lovely pace, with the usual misunderstandings before they finally connect. Their relationship was believable and endearing. I enjoyed the transition back to the present and the introduction of Leo was great, (would love to read his story).
I would happily recommend this book (series?) to anyone who enjoys a good story behind the romance as well as the important HEA!
