FOR THE LOVE OF MAUDE is a fascinating new take on time travel that had me reading late into the night. It is a clever and inventive tale that works on three levels: as an intriguing fantasy concept, a realistic character study and a touching love story. Imagine going back in time and meeting your wife or husband when they were young, long before you made first contact. Be ready for some unexpected bumps and joys along the way.
Emily sweeps back and forth through time in one adventure after another, finding herself, testing fate, and adding to her journal. Maude, her beloved great-great aunt, is the inspiration for her adventurous spirit. The book left me sitting back and thinking "well, if I could go back in time and change something, what would it be?"
FOR THE LOVE OF MAUDE is a well-written novel with strong characters and a unique plot. I can highly recommend it to anyone who loves historical and fantasy romance. I found myself completely taken after the first few pages.
I absolutely adored Dear Maude and waited 'patiently' for book 2 to come out. I was not disappointed. I actually slowed my reading down because i did not want the book to end. Very well-written once again, captivating and engaging. I loved how the author was able to make the reader fall in love with Shane, just when Emily did, despite all her initial anger. It's hard to write and make the reader change their feelings as the character is changing hers. Excellent job. I loved her surprise meeting with the saleslady and that just had me turning pages fast and furiously, SO many surprises! I loved all the different decades she visited- they all seemed so real. I have to admit i was sad when the book ended because i now have to wait for the third book to come out. This is definitely a series i would love to read again in the future, when i have all 3 books and can read them one after another. LOVED them both! You will dot be disappointed. The author is a fantastic writer.
This fantastic story promises to satisfy history buffs, helpless romantics, and time travel lovers! After narrowly escaping a dangerous world of deception and treachery, Emily is shuffled from one safe house to another while her critically injured husband recovers in the distant future. Kept in the dark about his condition for months, she eventually finds herself stranded on a remote island, bored and very lonely. But when her husband’s obnoxious younger self arrives, claiming he’s been sent to take care of her in case Dell dies, the attraction between them mounts. Soon Emily is faced with impossible choices that will leave at least one of them heartbroken. The reader is swept through a parade of time periods, complete with fashion trends, societal customs, and architectural details. The layers of time travel and the reproductions of one’s actions is nearly dizzying in its complexity. A truly great read!
"For the Love of Maude" is a great time travel novel about a woman whose husband has been injured, and while he's been sent to the future to heal, she's sent to the past to hide out. While there, she befriends a young woman who plays a major part in her life, and is forced to deal with a younger version of her husband. This book is well written, with wonderful characters and a great plot. It is the followup to the novel "Dear Maude" and is just as entertaining. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see what happens.
I found For The Love of Maud completely consuming. It has been a long time since I found myself unable to put a book down. (I was reading while stirring the pot for dinner.). I found the story line and characters gripping. Bravo Ms. Liebig.
