Synopsis (from GoodReads.com)
When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life – a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.
Michele is soon leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves – a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives.
I’m going to be honest with you. I am never engaged to a book from the first pages. I’m actually skeptical about it. And, as cheesy as it sounds, Timeless was wonderful from the beginning. The plot was great, the characters were great, and the settings- phenomenal. It’s one of the best books I’ve read in a few months.
I absolutely adored Michele and Phillip. So cute :3. Seriously, though, they were strong main characters who did not fail to deliver an amazing story.
The setting was wonderful, also. It’s as if you can really feel you’re there with the characters in that time period, which Ms. Monir captured perfectly.
I also loved the fact that she can travel almost a little forward in time, with the pace of her great-grandmother’s diary, of course. It was amazing to go through the decades with her.
Overall, this is just SUCH a wonderful novel. You should read it, definitely.
Would I recommend this? YES. To everyone! Must read!
