I always enjoy time travel novels, and this one was no exception. Evie McIntyre is a modern girl working with her grandmother at Lavender House, a Victoria property that survived Union general Sheridan’s burning back during the Civil War. Her biggest problem is that whispers and murmurs are coming from the closet in her room, and she’s scared to death. One night the house ‘warbles’ between times and transports her back to the Civil War era where former Confederate office Jack Ramsey befriends her. Almost immediately there is a strong connection between them. Now all Evie has to do is figure out how to help the family currently living in Lavender House and get Jack safely to 2019.
The characters in the book are sympathetic and likeable. I especially liked Jack because he showed good depth of character due to his conflict over his own role in the war. The plot was well thought out, and logically reached its conclusion. The pacing was just right. The book is an easy read. I read the whole thing in half a day.
If you believe in soul mates, true love, and destiny you’re sure to enjoy this one. I’d give it 4 out of 5 stars.
