Dreams have a way of turning into
reality . . .
less than one week, twenty-three year old Mechi Jeanotte's world
has been completely turned upside down. With the death of her beloved
father, she experiences double heartache when the man she is in
love with unexpectedly jilts her by walking out of her life. She
tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart by accepting
a position as a golf pro at St. Andrews Golf Course, just outside
Aberdeen, Maryland. She hopes this change of atmosphere will give
her a fresh new outlook on life.
first job assignment is to meet with a client at 7:30 AM for a private
golf lesson. Arriving early, she decides to practice her swing.
When her ball flies high, she goes to retrieve it; what she finds
instead is an old, dirty sphere the likes of which she has never
seen before. She decides to hit this object; and upon contact with
the strange orb, she is enveloped in a cloud of feathers and darkness.
When her eyes are able to focus once again, she gazes upon a handsome
man with a Scottish accent. She is puzzled when he tells her his
name is Robert Keith, the Viscount of Kintore. Looking around at
her surroundings, she immediately notices a dramatic change in scenery.
Everyone is dressed in old Shakespeare costumes and talking with
a Scottish accent. She finds nothing is familiar; it is as though
she has been transported to another place and time. When she asks
what year it is, she is shocked to hear that it is 1560 and she
is in Scotland. Could her mind be playing tricks on her or has she
really been transported back into time?
Elaine Smith has penned a fast-paced, light and lovely book. The
research that she has conducted for this book is very evident by
the flawless historical details she is able to provide her readers.
Her writing style is refreshing to savor and I found myself actually
hating to see this one end. I feel this author has the talent to
write an endless supply of romance books that will be around to
appease many future generations. Talent such as she exhibits only
comes around once in a lifetime. Very highly recommended.
