Review: A Train Through Time

A Train Through Time A Train Through Time by Bess McBride
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Time Travel Romance:
College teacher Ellie Standish thinks she's on a sleek modern train heading to a conference on women's studies in Seattle, but she awakens from a night's doze to find herself on a bizarre historical train full of late Victorian era reenactors who refuse to come out of character. When the leader of the group—one handsome, green-eyed Robert Chamberlain—finally convinces her the date is indeed 1901, a skeptical Ellie decries any eccentric theories of time travel and presumes she is smack dab in the middle of a very interesting historical dream. She turns the directorial reins of her dream over to one smitten and willing Robert, only to realize that dreams cannot last forever. Someday, she must wake up to reality, though Ellie no longer has any idea what reality is. She only knows that Robert must play an important part in her future. But how can he...if he's only a figment of her imagination or worse yet...a man who belongs to an era long past?

My Thoughts:

Cover/Title: If you have read any of my reviews, then you know I love time travel books so it is no surprise that I found yet another one to read. I love that the cover is so perfect for this book.

Characters: I thoroughly enjoyed the characters in this book. I loved that Ellie didn't just assume that she was back in time. She was determined that there was a rational reason for what was happening.

Plot: Ellie is on a train on her way to a conference. She wakes up on a different train in a different time period. She is confused and refuses to admit where/when she is.

Overall: I loved that the author threw in a couple trips back to the future instead of keeping the story in the past. I can't wait to read book 2.
