What would you do if your true love were born a hundred years before you? Sixteen-year-old Michele Windsor finds out. When her mother dies, she moves across the country to live with her wealthy grandparents in New York. There, she's surrounded with opulence, a first for her.

Michele is grieving, of course, but then something very strange happens. She gets transported back in time to the fascinating Gilded Age—1910. At a fancy ball, she makes eye contact with the young man who has haunted her dreams for years, and it’s a magical moment. Philip pulls her aside, equally entranced. They develop a friendship and more. She gets yanked back to her present but finds her way back to him periodically. These are two completely endearing characters. Philip is so respectful and romantic he sets a new standard. Michele is his equal, deserving of this great guy, and the chemistry between them is amazing. When they get separated, it’s heart wrenching.

The descriptions of the era, as well as those of the twenties and forties enrich the story and make the world of the characters realistic. Michele’s adventures in the past are interesting. The subplot adds intrigue with its family mystery. Supporting characters are just right.

This is a fast-paced book, hard to put down, and so well written. It’s moving emotionally and lovely in presentation. The author is a singer/songwriter, and the original songs mentioned in the book can be found online. I look forward to reading the sequel to this great story and highly recommend this book.
