Favorite Quote: “…the love between the two of you is strong enough to transcend time.”
Synopsis: Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from 1815, England … but she doesn’t realize it until she meets her soul mate from the past and he triggers her memories to gradually return.
When Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie’s high school, she feels a connection to him, like she knows him. But he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching Drew is more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can’t she get him out of her mind?
Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, but fighting fate isn’t easy, and she’s determined to unravel the mysteries of the past.

Review: 4.5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟💫
I have to be honest with you guys, I read this in ONE sitting! I really fell in love with this lovely world created by Michelle Madow. The mystery behind the past really intrigued me and I HAD to know more. I was caught up in the drama and emotions of teenage life. Elizabeth aka Liz, was a great character. She was sensible and smart. It was so easy to love this love story, and the characters were unique on their own. Drew was swoon worthy but I wished he had more page time? Is that a thing? It is now. I enjoyed learning about the past along side Liz and found myself going through different scenarios trying to fit it all together. I know some people don’t think this is a valid reason, but the characters WERE relatable. There’s love, dances, best friends, cliques, high school drama, school games, it was easy to lose yourself in this book. and that’s exactly what I did.
What I didn’t like though was how everyone treated Liz. It was as if they all had no regard to her feelings or what she wanted. They treated her like a child who couldn’t make her own decisions, and that bothered me because it almost even came from her own mother. Like WHAT? People telling her she was wrong for feeling a certain way, I definitely sympathized because unfortunately these things can happen in real life. I felt like a bit more history could have been added (especially with Alistair, whaaaaaaat?!) so I only took half a point off.
There were a lot of Pride and Prejudice moments and references in this book which I didn’t mind. Also I read somewhere this novel was based off of Taylor Swifts Love Story, which I found pretty interesting.
I recommend you guys checking this lovely book out, it’s a quick, easy, light and has the potential of curing a reading slump. The romance is cute, and personally I couldn’t put this one down. The whole story concept is fascinating and I don’t see many books on reincarnation (The Alchemy of Forever, anyone?) and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I’m super excited to pick up the rest of the series.
AND the best part for you? It’s currently a free kindle e-book on Amazon!
