When Love Unlocks Time is a grippingTudor time travel novel which gives Miranda a unique opportunity for another try at life. Things aren't going well for Miranda when she finds a way to travel back in time. Without warning she is plunged into the intrigue and mesmerising romance of Tudor times amongst the wildly ambitious Boleyns and Seymours. Fabulous gowns, jewels, balls and Manor Houses play their part in this story and sensuous fragrances, oils and wines set the scene for intimate encounters. Henry VIII is in his irresistible prime and passion ignites and blazes into being until Miranda's heart is shattered when the King turns his back on her when Anne Boleyn starts whispers of witchcraft. Lord Benedict risks everything to save her life and when Miranda comes to her senses she braves a return to Tudor time to help him secure the Marchant family fortune. But what the King wants, the King gets, and falling in love with Lord Benedict brings terrible danger to all. Can Miranda find the courage to brave the wrath of the King and make a life in centuries past with Lord Benedict and his formidable grandmother or will she return to her own time and leave behind a love that spans centuries? Will Miranda dare to find her inner strength and secure fabulous wealth for her descendants after a lifetime of losing out to others? Will Lady Marchant's aristocratic pragmatism and esoteric secrets save the day when all seems lost or will she too turn her back on Miranda? A fabulous romp across time with a depth and intelligence to please the discerning reader. Historical accuracy: Miranda and the Marchant family appear as new players amongst the tempestuous Tudors, Boleyns and Seymours. The Old Naval College at Greenwich stands on the site of Henry Viii's much loved Greenwich Palace which is why it was chosen for the time travel portal. Henry's great work of mapping the coastal defences is well documented and the fabulous wealth to be gained by those bringing rare spices from the Spice Islands is also well known. The historical framework and dates are reasonably accurate but please don't rely on them for reference material.

It didn't take me long to get into the characters in the book. The relationship between Miranda and Henry is so believable. The attention to historic and modern detail is excellent. A very vivid portrayal.

 

5.0 out of 5 stars A good historical romance novel with a twist, leaving you wanting more!

This is a great light read for holidays and travelling or something you can simply pick up each evening. It moves in to the story quickly and has a nice pace. Modern day life mixed with Tudor history is what gives its most interesting uniqueness and the Author has plenty of twists and turns, making the book unpredictable whilst keeping your interest. I can't wait for the sequel!

 

5.0 out of 5 stars Page turner with convincing historical detail

An interesting debut novel that really did capture the Tudor period and the political maneuvering of the court of Henry VIII. The time travel aspect is handled well and the character of the heroine is well drawn, although my favourite character was Lady Marchant, a formidable lady who if this book was ever televised would have to be played by Maggie Smith!

 

5.0 out of 5 stars This Beautiful Flowing Time Travel Novelette Contains Subtle Life Lessons Like a Great Short Story

8 June 2017

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

In the interest of full disclosure, the author is a former colleague whose work was always thorough, professional and balanced. I do not enjoy reading for pleasure, but decided to read her book partly because she once edited and transformed one of my work documents into a flowing masterpiece.

This may be the catalyst that gets me to read recreationally once again! The author is a wordsmith whose rich text was magical and a pleasure to read. Never once was I tempted to skip to the end, I savoured each well chosen word and phrase. The novelette was also filled with lessons/wisdom one would expect from an O. Henry short story. The story is complete within the book, yet leaves open the possibility for a sequel. I was so in touch with the words on the written page that a small error/typo jumped out at me, so get your first edition copy now before it's corrected!

If you enjoy an author with a gift for words, you are bound to savour and love "When Love Unlocks Time"

This book has it all. Love Story, Historical Novel and Adventure. I could not put it down right from the beginning as the Author transports you back in time, then weaving into modern day life again. I hope Camilla will write more fantastic stories like this.

As a primarily non-fiction reader, I found this novel thoroughly captivating and enchanting. It is fitting to say that each time I had to stop reading I could not wait to start again. (The book was to me what the alcove was to Miranda!). I highly recommend this novel and cannot wait to read another from the author.

Great read, well written. Can't put it down once you start

 

4.0 out of 5 stars A splendid time-travel story

June 7, 2017

Format: Kindle Edition

This time-travel story is somewhat unusual in that Miranda is able to enter and leave King Henry VIII's court several times.

It's rather like the play/movie "Noises Off" in which the same scenario is repeated three times with each time presenting a different viewpoint.

Miranda Glover enters through a door where a Tudor masked ball is in progress. In one episode, she is approached by King Henry and dances with him, eventually becoming his mistress. In this time-slip she barely escapes with her life.

When she returns to the present, apparently time resets itself and her previous experience never happened.

I enjoyed this story very much.
