I won't often admit it, but I really can get behind a good romance or two, and this book is certainly a romance. Whether or not it's good, though, is difficult to say- it begins and ends on strong notes, but everything in the middle is garbled. Lydde falls into a relationship with Noah so quickly that I went back and reread everything up to that point, wondering if they had met before and I had missed it. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393052060, Hardcover)

A master storyteller delivers an historical novel with a twist-what will become of a modern American woman in Cromwell's England?

Returning home to West Virginia after her beloved Uncle John's death, Lydde finds that he has left her an odd legacy: a note with instructions that lead her to a remote mountain cave. When she falls into a crevasse, she finds she has followed her uncle farther than she thought-to Norchester, England, in 1657. Times are dark: the ruling Puritans have beheaded the king and prohibited song, dance, and even Christmas. Though she passes as a boy with her short hair and pants, local official Noah Fallam is still suspicious of her strange clothing and outspokenness. Luckily, she soon finds her uncle, and another man: the Raven, a bandit who provides for the poor through smuggling and robbery. The unlikely couple fall in love, and Lydde must decide where-and when-she belongs. This captivating story brings us close to Denise Giardina's signature concerns of faith and the way we treat the earth.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:29 -0400)

Following a strange note left to her by her late uncle, Lydde finds herself transported back to England in 1657, where the ruling Puritans have outlawed all forms of entertainment and where falls in love with a bandit named Raven.
