Charmingly written with remarkably comfortable dialogue and characterization, Overseas is a tale that will appeal to a wide variety of readers. Kate is a beautiful, modern-day heroine whose intelligence definitely takes precedence over her looks, while Julian is a charming, old-world hero with broad appeal. The arguments between the two of them begin to become repetitive by the middle of the novel, and the story gets tangled up in one too many requests for suspension of disbelief. Most readers will remember that time-travel love stories have been done better. Still, the read is worthwhile and engaging.
Kate Wilson is a rising star in the financial world. She’s never believed in anything except her own ability to make a successful life — until she meets charming and mysterious Julian. Julian is a self-made billionaire, one of those rising stars of Wall Street who have inexplicable and sudden success. His mysterious rise, and his unrelenting interest in Kate, eventually reveal a secret that goes back to the early days of World War II. (PUTNAM, May, 464 pp., $25.95)
