Review: Time's Arrow - Clare Revell



Have you ever seen the film Kate and Leopold , featuring Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman ?
That's what Clare Revell's new book "Time's Arrow" reminded me of.
Review: Time's Arrow - Clare Revell - November 2011
This story was awesome , one of my all-time movies is Kate and Leopold , in which Leopold happens to travel into the future and falls in love with Kate - a modern 21st Century girl and of course Leopold belongs in the regency era, so Kate must make her choice. The other film along this theme is Lost in Austen , in which the main character falls asleep to Pride and Prejudice in the modern world and then somehow ends up switching places with Elizabeth Bennett , the book character and of course she ends up falling for Mr. Darcy and must make the decision to remain in Mr. Darcy's world or return back to her life in the 21st century.
In Time's Arrow , we meet Jonnie - she has just quit her job after a break-up with her boss Bryan - he decided to cheat on her after she wouldn't sleep with him. Jonnie, needing a break goes to house-sit for her friends and then while out for a walk , she ends up magically transported from the year 2011 to 1840. In 1840, Jonnie meets Lord Sebastian who is to get married and whilst his mother picks out prospects , none of them have what he is looking for . That is not until Jonnie arrives and then begins a journey of language barriers, conflicting tales and of course passionate sparks.  When it is time for Jonnie to make her decision - to return to her life as she knew it or to stay with Lord Sebastian in 1840 , which will she choose ?
A lovely romantic tale that I recommend all she read.
