Jeri I can't say exactly how many pages...you don't really see it taking the time-travel turn until you are well into the book. That being said, the time travel isn't quite... time travel. Almost like a past life? But the past and present are really tied together. I agree - I am not a big fan of time travel, but I don't think I would classify it in this way. This particular book is somewhat out of style for Kleypas, but it is a good read.
