A Shape on the Air
Unlocking a love that lasts for lifetimes - and beyond! When Dr Viv DuLac, a medievalist, slips into 499 AD and into the body of Lady Vivianne, little does she realise that both their lives across the centuries will become intertwined as they fight for their dreams … and their lives. How can the key which Viv bring back with her to the present unlock the love they both crave, and help them through the dangers they both face? And how can they help each other across the centuries, without changing the course of history?
What a great read about Viv Dulac, a woman scorned and who has hit rock bottom with a recent breakup that is now left her with a broken heart and homeless! As Viv's entire world falls apart, she falls into Cooney's Mere and into a time slip back in 499 into the body of Lady Vivianne who is betrothed to a man he despises, Sir Palleas. Could this have been a life she had once lived?
I enjoyed reading this historical fiction time slip romance with amazing characters. I enjoyed reading about the creativity and ingenuity of linking and weaving these timeline into a very interesting storyline. I loved that the women in this story both are brilliant and strong characters that won't take what is given to them at face value - they will fight back and will be triumphant in the end. Both these story line in the past and present were equally compelling that made for an amazingly delightful and fast paced read. I recommend this fun and feel good read.
I enjoyed this very much!!
