Dream of Time~Not your typical time travel

Dream of Time
When people ask what genre of books do I prefer I usually have a difficult time giving them a straight answer. Sometimes it depends on the mood I am in, or it may relate to something that is currently going on around me. I love the past and if I find a book that can take me to another place I am usually all in.  When I came across Dream of Time by Nancy J. Price the cover was the first thing that caught my attention. What was behind that cover really grabbed me. This is a story of time travel, but not your typical time travel. The main character Robin finds herself traveling in between current day and 1900 San Francisco when she goes to sleep. To give this an even bigger twist when she wakes up in 1900 she is not Robin but another woman who must untangle the past using clues from the future.

There is mystery and romance along with cute references to the differences in time periods.  I found myself doing some quick internet research on some of the historical references made in the book. The author did a wonderful job relating the settings in the book.  If you are looking for an escape I suggest Dream of Time.

More about the book from Goodreads……

When Robin drifts off to sleep each night, she finds herself dreaming about the life of a woman in the Victorian age. She soon realizes it’s not a dream at all, but she is truly slipping into San Francisco’s past.

While living two lives — one as a mom in the modern day, the other as a proper young lady at the turn of the century — she discovers how she’s being sent back to a bygone era is only the first mystery. A much more important question is why she’s there.

With the help of a rookie police officer, Robin takes off on a spellbinding adventure, sifting through a century’s worth of clues to solve a series of puzzles — and to put love to the test. History, though, proves itself a worthy opponent, and she comes to experience firsthand how destiny can be kind and cruel in the same stroke
