Newly divorced, history buff Sarah Yates is searching for a change of pace in her dull life. Whether it be a curse or a blessing, a strange man knocks on her door offering her a chance to become a time traveler. Green-eyed, Johnny Depp-ish John Needler attempts to convince her she’s not hallucinating, nor having a nervous breakdown. With nothing to lose, she agrees to be swept back in time to save lives in order for the future to flourish. Sarah is whisked away from Yorkshire, England, to places she has only visited in her dreams and textbooks. But John is constantly on her mind and Sarah wonders if they can pass a little “time” together and possibly plan a future together. (CHOC LIT, Apr., 336 pp., $14.95)
