A Train Through Time by Bess McBride

train through time

I was so excited to get this E book, this was a story I always wanted to write myself…but Bess McBride has done a great job at it.

College teacher Ellie Standish thinks she’s on a sleek modern train heading to a conference on women’s studies in Seattle, but she awakens from a night’s doze to find herself on a bizarre historical train full of late Victorian era reenactors who refuse to come out of character. When the leader of the group—handsome, green-eyed Robert Chamberlain—finally convinces her the date is indeed 1901, a skeptical Ellie rejects any eccentric theories of time travel and presumes she is smack dab in the middle of a very interesting historical dream. She turns the directorial reins of her dream over to the smitten and willing Robert, only to realize that dreams cannot last forever. Someday, she must wake up to reality, though Ellie no longer has any idea what reality is. She only knows that Robert must play an important part in her future. But how can he…if he’s only a figment of her imagination or worse yet…a man who belongs to an era long past?


What I liked about this story was how the author showed the difference between the language we use today as compared to the Victorian Era.  It showed how we have lost that wonderful and gentle time.     How she awoke on the train and thought she was in a re-enactment  was a unique and interesting concept.

I did get this for FREE on amazon, and when I have time I would highly consider reading further books in this series
