This tale of a Cornish lass who is being shipped off to a convent, runs away from the coach and is transported via a magic circle of stones to modern-day Tennessee is a fun fish-out-of-water story. Emily Musgrave is rescued and taken in by Tinker and Liam Jackson, who have a sister-and-brother musical act and are playing dives and small venues, perhaps on their way to stardom. Unfortunately, Emily's not the only one who has come forward in time... and not everyone's motives are as pure as hers. The story has music, magic, romance, regret, guilt, guises, mood swings and more than one attempted murder. The result is a complicated and ever-deepening novel, whose initial lightness–largely due to Emily's learning the ways of modern living–grows ever darker. The resolution of the story is a bit rushed and a tad "pat," but overall it's a good read. 3.5 out of 5 stars, rounded up to 4 for those rating systems don't have 1/2 stars.
