From Booklist

After her mother is killed in an automobile accident, Michelle Windsor is flown from her cozy Venice Beach, California, neighborhood to the palatial New York City home of her grandparents, whom, due to strained family relationships, she has never met. In this new, wealthy environment, she is introduced to the family history through a diary that transports her back to 1910 and details a feud between the Windsors and the Walkers. In a riff on Romeo and Juliet, Michelle falls for Phillip Walker and must decide how to extricate herself from their romance so that he can live a rich and fulfilling life in his own time and space. The narrative occasionally feels overwritten, and the swings to and from the early twentieth century can be choppy, while the historical characters have a less authentic feel than those of the present day. Still, debut author Monir has crafted an intriguing time-travel fantasy that will be an easy sell to romance fans, who will hope for a sequel. Grades 7-10. --Frances Bradburn --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

J-14 Magazine book club: 
  If you like historical fiction like Anna Godbersen's The Luxe or fantasy romances like Aprilynne Pike's Wings (and of course, Twilight), you'll love J-14's newest book club pick: Timeless by Alexandra Monir.

Michele Windsor is just your average California beach girl, but after a terrible tragedy strikes her family, she's forced to move to New York City and live in a stuffy mansion with the grandparents she's never met.

While making friends and fitting in at a new school is hard enough, Michele also has to unravel an unbelievable family secret -- an old diary that has the mysterious power to transport her to the year 1910. In this other world, Michele meets Philip, a gorgeous and sweet guy who's haunted her dreams her entire life. Convinced he's her soulmate, soon she's leading a double life and caught up in a race through history to save Philip's life.

I was so drawn into Michele and Philip's love story that I tore through Timeless in just two days! Once you've finished the book, head over to our J-14 message boards to discuss. You can also download the original songs that play a crucial role in the Timeless plot! (http://www.j-14.com/2011/01/j-14-book-club-timeless-by-alexandra-monir.html)




SAVVY Magazine:

There is nothing quite like curling up with a book you just can’t seem to put down—and wouldn’t want to even if you could. Enter “TIMELESS”, written by Alexandra Monir. I was lucky enough to interview this impressive young author about her debut book and can’t wait to share some sneak peeks into the story, as well as into Alexandra’s own life, with all of you!

“TIMELESS” will sweep you away from era to era, alongside main character Michele Windsor as she defies the constricts of time and engages your heart and mind. The power of music is embedded deeply in this story, as Michele turns out to be a song writer—just like the author really is! Alexandra, in her own words, says that “music is how we express ourselves when emotions are too overpowering for just words, and with a love story like TIMELESS, there are definitely overwhelming emotions at play that only the music my characters write together can fully express! “ Alexandra is so passionate about music that she actually recorded two of the songs from the story (bonus: the songs are available via digital download to anyone who purchases the book!).

Alexandra expertly hits the sweet spot in this story, weaving together the perfect blend of quality content, romance and heart-pounding adventure that fill every page. She is currently working on the sequel to this novel and we could not be more excitedly awaiting its arrival. “TIMELESS” is one book I guarantee you do want to miss, but just let me warn you—the characters and story are sure to come alive in your hands and leave a lasting impression in your heart!

Can you put a time limit on love? According to this book, no. Michele's had dreams about a young man since she was a little girl and never understood why she felt so much love for this stranger. When Michele finds the beautiful chain with the key, she is transported back in time to her ancestors. From 1910, to the roaring 20's, and through the World War Michele is there.

Monir paints such a vivid picture for the reader while describing old NYC. I live in NY so the landmarks and streets that were being named, I knew. I literally saw the horse drawn carriages, the flapper dresses, to the smoky cotton club. I'm a huge fan of historical fiction so this was right down my alley. Usually I'm upset when romances happen fairly quickly in books but this was a different case. Michele's been dreaming about Philip since she was a young girl. Well of course all she needed to do was see him for that love to awaken in her.

When I read this mostly I was on the train. I had no idea what was going on around me. I remember a few times almost missing my stop and thinking "Wait, where am I??" It felt like I was completely transported back in time myself. The author does an excellent job of drawing us in and holding us there. I was not confused by the time traveling at all. The transitions were done very smoothly. I like the way we visited all of Michele's ancestor's, each in a different era. This novel is humorous at times, heart breaking, engaging and romantic. I truly enjoyed it and it is a beautiful love story definitely for hopeless romantics.

Timeless reflected an elegantly written love story that transported me through a charming time travel. Michele, a bright and talented writer, was an easy character to connect with. Her relatable tone, even during tragic occurrences, carried the same level of comfort throughout. Michele, early in the novel experiences a life altering loss that causes her to move in with her rich grandparents in NYC. There, her depression elevates while being in a big house with a cold atmosphere. When she stumbles upon a magical key and her ancestor's diary, a new discovery of time travel throws her into a whirlwind world of questions. The descriptive quality during the 1900's was breathtakingly fascinating. I would have loved to physically see the busy, city lights turn into a calm, and demeanor society. I gratefully admire Monir's research and hard work in developing the scenery. It's nice to be mentally taken back one hundred years.

Michele's back and forth visits through time gained her access into the Windsor's history. Her ancestors such as Clara and Stella were tastefully done. Their personalities shined through even when Michele graced their presence for a short while. Now, the romantic aspect surrounding her travels revolved around Philip. At first sight, he was an attractive and well-mannered gentleman with moralizing values. The inevitable chemistry seemingly showcased a bond that would stand the hands of time. Another element which was easy to follow was the modern and old school, aristocratic acts between the two worlds. All in all, the ending left me yearning for the sequel. After all, I did say out loud, "son of a gun" once I finished it. I really enjoyed the whole feel and concept expressed in Michele's unforgettable love quest and I look forward to continuing it with the rest of the series.

I just finished Timeless and I am still wiping the tears from my eyes. This was a fascinating and emotionally wrenching page-turner. It starts with tragedy. Michele is sent to live with the grandparents she never knew after the sudden tragic death of her mother. Once in New York and in a lifestyle that she could hardly believe was real, she is further knocked off balance by traveling in time and meeting and falling in love with the boy she has dreamed about for years.

I liked the romance but it was heart-breaking. Falling in love with someone from a different time can't have a good ending. As Michele moves back and forth in time she meets a number of her female relatives who all have shared her new bedroom. She learns about them and, as a result of her visits, change their lives and has her life changed too. I loved the descriptions of New York through the various times and all the gorgeous houses.

I liked how Michele's relationship with her grandparents changes through the course of the book. I liked how strangers could gradually become a family. I liked how Michele's travels in time gave her a new insight into her grandfather. I liked Michele's relationship with her new friends in New York. But I wish that more of the story would have been devoted to her 20th Century life. It sometimes just seemed like filler between her trips to the past.

I don't want to spoil the book for anyone but I had some serious reservations about the end of the story. I do very much look forward to the sequel and hope that my reservations are unfounded. The book does end with some questions unanswered and some topics unexplored. It might, in some senses, be considered a cliffhanger ending.

I was interested to read that Alexandra Monir had compiled a song list for the novel.
