it was amazing
Read from January 26 to 28, 2012

There have been certain times in my life, when on historic ground, I have believed to see small glimpses into the past. A shadow of a child playing, a man and woman out for a walk, a wounded soilder, or a mother comforting her child. To me, the walls between time have always seemed very thin.

I read my first time travel book around the age of 10. It was called, "Can I Get There by Candlelight?" and oh how I wished I was the girl in that story! I could so vividly imagine the thrilling aspect of being able to experience a whole other time! Ever since then I could not resist a good time travel book.

"The Rose Garden" by Susanna Kearsley transported me to the early 1700's. I had so much fun reading this novel! It was one that was hard to put down. And even though it would be a great vacation read, I was surprised at some of the deep and meaningful undertones having to do with time itself. I would like to think that someday in the future someone might glimpse into the past and see me living my life :)
