Rating: 4 Cups
Kelsey St. James is supposed to be on vacation, which is bad enough since she hates taking time off. On top of that, she is renovating her Nana Mary's house, which is something else she detests altogether. While scraping away at wallpaper, Kelsey finds a hidden door and, stepping through, finds herself back in 1871!
T.K. Reese is many things -- a gambler, a half-breed, and an outlaw. But when it comes to women, he cannot help but play hero when one is in dire straits. When a woman wearing strange clothing screams for help, he comes to her rescue.
Kelsey does not want to believe she has somehow found her way into the past. When she hears that her missing grandfather may actually be in the nineteenth century, she begins to search for the portal back home. As her search continues, Kelsey is aided by T.K., and their feelings of mutual attraction soon turns to love. But an unexpected visitor has Reese arrested for murder and put on trial, one that may tear them apart forever.
Shadows Through Time is a time-traveling romance with a rich and authentic background that will have any reader feeling as if they have stepped into the past. Kelsey is portrayed as a woman who does not know whether to break down and cry, or to celebrate her good fortune because she finds herself in the past. Hearing about the wild west from her storytelling Papa Joe was one thing, but as she relives it, the reader can feel her struggling with her emotions as they roller coaster from the highs and the lows. While T.K. is a wanted man, his soul is soft and gentle and leaves women feeling like putty in his hands. Ms. Baker has written a thoroughly engaging novel that will keep book lovers entertained for hours.
