The time-travelling Annie Thornton, who is also a novice witch, returns from modern-day England to medieval Yorkshire, where she meets two handsome soldiers of fortune and a black cat who can read her mind. This well-written book will appeal to fans of Outlander, and best of all, it's the first in a new series. I know the author personally, so I was privileged to read the manuscript before publication, and I enjoyed it immensely.

I studied history in University because I find it fascinating. I have both a BA and an MA in history so I am very fussy about reading history books that are well written and well researched. I always have some trepidation when it comes to historical fiction because it so often lacks adequate research. I bought Maureen Thorpe's Tangle of Time because I could see instantly, its veracity. I am enjoying the book so mch, the historical detail is wonderful, accurate and fitting to a very entertaining ...more

An impressive debut novel.

The author’s love of history and research is evident in this tangled tale about a modern-day midwife and novice witch, who is propelled back in time and lands right in the middle of a dangerous mystery. And a romance!

The historic descriptions are so good, you really feel you’re living in medieval Yorkshire—traipsing up and down the streets and eating the food of the day.

This is the first book in a series, so be on the lookout for the second installment in 2020.

I purchased this book from the author at a farmers market while on vacation, thinking I should help support local authors.

A good read by the author's first book. An easy tale takes us back 600 years to medieval England. The author combines her own experience with enjoyable story telling.

Quickly ordered her second book, Sailing to Byzantium, and about to crack it open. Only disappointment is I won't have it autographed by the author, Maureen Thorpe, like the first.

The book is set in 15th century Yorkshire, in and around a fictitious village - Hallamby. The story brings together (friendly) witchcraft and intrigue, all set within a time travel environment. I loved the characters and the mixing of the centuries. It is also educational to appreciate life in the 15th century, as well as a great yarn. I cannot wait for the next book!

Really enjoyed this book, couldn’t wait to pick it up and read more. I don’t find too many books actually have me thinking about the storyline and the characters during the day when I’m not reading but this one did!! Great ending but sad it is over!! Loved it!

I have read Tangle of Time twice now, cover to cover in each sitting. I enjoyed it as much the second time as the first.
Looking forward to the next adventure with Annie and Rosamund. I will patiently revisit them in Yorkshire until then.

I bought this book from the author at a Farmers Market in Invermere a year ago. I usually read on Kindle but decided it was time to read this book. I loved the book and the characters and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

A wonderful time-trip back to Middle Ages Yorkshire to solve a mystery and save the town! Delightful characters and a light writer's touch pulled me through the story, and the deep knowledge of the area's history really brought it to life. Highly recommended.

Tangle of Time is a wonderfully well-crafted book. Having visited the Yorkshire area myself, I can say that this book perfectly captures the atmosphere. The author's passions for writing and Yorkshire is obvious on every page. From precisely drawn and lovable characters to a detailed and researched setting, this book is an incredibly rich brew of historical fantasy and I look forward to reading more about Annie and her adventures through time.
