Description

Experience a love that transcends time in this sensation debut novel from the New York Times bestselling author of A Hundred Summers and Along the Infinite Sea.

Amiens, France, 1916: Captain Julian Ashford, a British officer in the trenches of the Western Front, is waylaid in the town square by Kate, a beautiful young American. Julian’s never seen her before, but she has information about the reconnaissance mission he’s about to embark on. Who is she? And why did she track him down in Amiens?

New York, 2007: A young Wall Street analyst, Kate Wilson learned to rely on logic and cynicism. So why does she fall so desperately in love with Julian Laurence, a billionaire with a mysterious past?

What she doesn’t know is that he has been waiting for her...the enchanting woman who emerged from the shadows of the Great War to save his life.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 05, 2012 – Wall Street analyst Kate Wilson is good at her job, good looking, smart, and while she s somewhat out of place in her shark-filled firm, she s hardly the sort of woman the handsome billionaire investment genius Julian Laurence would be expected to take an interest in. Yet from the moment he sees her, he s smitten. Equal parts mystified and attracted, Kate s left to wonder why he backs off as suddenly as he appeared. Is he just some rich jerk blowing hot and cold? No, he s deeply in love and stuck with a secret: he s from a different time, and they ve met before. Williams s pacing is excellent: as one question is answered, another arises, and soon, like Kate herself, readers are in too deep to argue. When the book starts moving between Wall Street (where Kate is accused of leaking information to Laurence s firm) and the WWI front (where Julian is an officer in the British Army), and the lovers face difficulties on all sides, we re happy to suspend disbelief. Some of the book s many plot threads get dropped, but it doesn t matter; at heart this is a delicious story about the ultimate romantic fantasy: love that not only triumphs over time and common sense, but, once Kate overcomes Julian s WWI-era ideas about honor, includes mind-blowing sex.

Customer Reviews

OVERSEAS

Love it! Williams's prose delights. A big love story on the surface. Underneath, interweaving themes of social change, courtship, and moral responsibility. Fabulous!

Boring and Pointless

Sorry, I tried giving this book a chance but half way into it I just started skimming through. A ridiculous love story about two of the most shallow characters ever imagined. This was truly a waste of money for me.

Blah

It started promisingly but soon descended into a mess of a plot and repetitive romantic drivel. I rarely struggle to finish a book I started but this was arduous in the extreme.
