Time and Tenacity
Hannah Vale, author
England, 1815: The Napoleonic Wars might be ending, but the future is not looking bright for 23-year-old Jane Farnsworth. While her three sisters have their own families and establishments; plain, insecure Jane is still in the care of her cold baronet uncle, watching her own marriage prospects dwindle away faster than her dreams of being a writer. Then Jane meets Mr. Granger, a handsome stranger who claims to be a time traveler. In a swirl of magic dust, Jane and her sisters-- fretful Cassandra, curious Eleanor, and petulant Isabella-- along with Cassandra's good-natured husband and Eleanor's spirited three-year-old son find themselves in 2015, a world with strange machines and even stranger people. To get home, they must help Mr. Granger get his time machine back, only for some of them to start questioning how much they really want to and all of them to get caught in the middle of a history-wide conspiracy that they have more connection to than they could ever imagine.
