time and space they instantly recognize each other as soul mates. Can
she save his life and make a future for them by changing history? And
Just in time for Valentine's Day comes this very romantic read.
While reading Kitteridge Grayson's journals Sharon Henderson fell in
love. Unfortunately, he had been dead for over 100 years. When Sharon
visits the historical site where Kit was imprisoned a storm, a pocket
watch, and a pretty awesome light show transport her to 1864 to the
heart of the active prison camp.
With some help from a new friend she works out a cover story and soon
finds herself helping out at the hospital treating wounded soldiers.
There she sees Kit for the first time. The meeting sparks recognition
in both of their hearts and the pieces seem to fall together. They are
soul mates and they've been brought together. But how much time do they
have? According to history Kit is supposed to die and Sharon has to
get home, to her time, to be with her young daughter.
I really enjoyed this story. The struggles that Sharon and Kit go
through make their love so much greater. I get slightly annoyed in
books when everything falls into place too easily for the hero and
heroine and boy did these two have it cut out for them. There was a
wonderful 'Happily Ever After' but there was a ton of heart break and
conflict before they made it there. I'm happy to say that Footprints in
Time made me laugh, cry and gave my chest that little squeeze when I
really enjoy two characters coming together :)
"She'd always heard people feared the future because it was unknown."
I'm here to tell the world, knowing is worse. A lot worse.
