You're kidding me?

Decent story. Could have been a bit more fleshed out. If you knew your were to travel back in time.... Why would you have a zipper on a dress or cotton socks instead of wool to keep warm? Starts with a Bang and you spend entire book reading how main character needs to get to a place to fix fate? Then... You get to ending and it just abruptly stops! You don't know! My gut reaction was to exclaim out loud "what a dumb book!".

A really entertaining tale of time travel - in this case, a modern-day woman and her brother, who are destined to return to the James River area of the American colonies, to fulfil a duty their mother and father have escaped for their own personal reasons.

Emmy has always known that this was her duty and even though her mother trained her in the various survival skills she would need at that time when she is separated from her brother Connor, she finds herself making dangerous errors. Daniel, a

This was an was easy 4 stars and I have book 2 waiting already to go.

I do enjoy the modern girl time-travelling romance. I like the clash of cultures and the conflict and assimilation.

The twist in this book that I really liked was that the time travel wasn't sudden and unexpected but predestined. Emmy was able too in modern times train and prepare for her time travelled life. It made her smarter then the girls in other time travel romances, she was able to hunt and survive without all the modern

I am normally a big fan of time travel stories and this one, set in seventeenth century America seemed intriguing. However the story was very disjointed. The heroine knew she had to go back in time to fix something but it was never clear what had happened or if she knew what to fix. I thought there might have been a predecessor book that explained things since the book felt as though you were coming in the middle of the story not the beginning g of the series

Excellent book!

Great love story! Fantastic premise for time travel. I am still in the edge of my seat, wanting to know what happens next. I read this in one sitting (minus bathroom breaks and kid interruptions) and am promptly buying the next book. Fine, I'll make dinner first.

Only about a dozen swear words (mostly the Lord's name) and brief sexual scenes (a couple of sentences to a couple of paragraphs) easily skimmed over.

Did not finish. I kept pushing on. I read 60% of it and that was hard going.

I’m not a huge fan of romance novels, but I do like history and time travel. Alas there’s too much romance and not enough history or time travel in this for me.

I found our main female character Emmy a bit wimpy and the romance a bit fast. I get sick of the insta-soul mate, possessed-by-each-other to the ends-of-time annoying and clichéd. I feel like I have read stories like this before and they were better.

Didn't know what the book was about when I ordered it, but I fell in love with it.The story line is an excellect twist of time, many of us have felt like we've been in the same spot before in a different time, this book allows us to think outside that box, about our past and our future. I can't wait to read the rest of these books.

A well written love story with lots of drama and suspense. Emmy and Daniel - drawn together through time. How could someone in 2014 find common ground with someone in the 1600's?

Emmy is a time walker and she travels back in time to fulfill her destiny. Daniel has known she would be coming for most of his life because he read the book of life. However he has just promised to hand her over to the enemy not realizing that she is his time walker.

Time travellers from the 21st century involved in the lives of the Indians battling the encroaching settlers in the mid 1600's. Decisions to be made, suffering to endure, and death to be overcome. Tugs at the heartstrings.

Drawn Out

This book is long and drawn out. Not much action . The romance was mechanical. I found it a waste of time.

A time travel romance that leads a modern era lady back to 1656 Virginia. A lot of allusions without enough answers.

Enjoyable read. Ready to read the sequel.

E.B. weaves s great fantasy along with bits of history.
I'm ready to read the other Time Walker books. ...

Ridiculously abrupt ending then the sequel isn't out even though it's past the release date.

It was interesting historically, but didn't have a lot of punch for me. I enjoyed it, but not enough to highly recommend it to others.

Only Time Will Tell!

This is the first book from Time Walkers that I have read. At first I was really confused but it became clearer as I continued to read.

In this Time Walkers extension book you have Emmy, who has grown up in one time being taught that she is actually to return to a past time. You also have Daniel who is in the past and that we find has done what he wasn’t supposed to and read what lay ahead for him in history. It is his family's job to secure this most precious history book as
