A Sweet, Enchanting Romance

I must start by saying I don't normally like time travel books but I picked this book because it sounded interesting. I was not disappointed.This is the story of Barrett Overbrook. She is at a point in her life where she isn't exactly happy being. She drives to a bed and breakfast where her life changes completely. She falls asleep and wakes up giving birth in the 1880's! She also discovers she's married and has a biracial brother-in-law. This story was romantic, funny and sweet! Barrett, a.k.a. Elizabeth, is funny trying to adjust to the new time she is in. She slips up and says the funniest things for the time period she is in. Her husband, Chase, doesn't understand the drastic changes in his wife. The stiff, formal Elizabeth has undergone a dramatic change during childbirth. She is a completely different person. Barrett, during a conversation with her guardian angel Mr. Gideon, discovers she has been brought back in time and is stuck there until she learns to love and accepts love. Her feelings toward Mr. Gideon are quite hilarious.I can't express enough how much I loved this book. The storyline was wonderful. The characters were well developed and seemed real. Chase was a great character. The character of Wes seemed to really add to the story. Mr. Gideon added to the story also. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next and read this book in one day. The story was written so well that there were not any dull periods in it. It read smoothly from one chapter to the next and was just an all around great read. This is a feel good story. A keeper for anyones library.

Loved this book!

This was one of the most unusual time travels I've ever read. I really enjoyed the method of travel as well as the twin storyline. I've researched this time period extensively, and I can say the author pulled me into the story with her convincing setting and wonderful plot. I highly recommend this book.


I don't like love stories, but this book was wonderful. I read it because it was recommended to me and I am sure glad I did.

exceptionally good reading

Jenny Lykins does not dissapoint us in this excellent time travel book. She makes it seem so plausible.

a heart-warming story

Barrett Overbrook doesn't realize how empty her life is until her guardian angel sends her back in time and she finds herself giving birth. Barrett's stuggles to cope with raising a baby, the lack of modern conveniences and with her troubled husband will touch your heart. This book is well-written and fast-paced.
