San Francisco Book Review: 4.5/5 stars

From the San Francisco Book Review (October 2013) Dream of Time By Nancy J Price Synchronista LLC, $16.99, 424 pages, Format: Trade Star Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Robin is a single mom in the 21st century. Life with her two kids is business as usual: hectic but manageable. However, when she starts to have unsettlingly realistic dreams about living in turn-of-the-century San Francisco, that all changes. Every night when Robin falls asleep, she wakes up in the body of a woman named Jennie, a recovering coma patient with a mysterious life. Since Robin comes to inhabit Jennie’s body without also gaining any of her memories, every day is a struggle to figure out what Jennie’s life was like before the accident. Eventually, after a few time-changing experiments, Robin comes to realize that these aren’t just dreams: she really is being transported to the past. From there, she tries to fit into two different eras and bodies, and needs to discover why she’s been sent to live two lives. What past event does she need to change? And can an attractive police officer named Travis help her find out? It is clear that Nancy J. Price, the author, has done her research on early 1900s San Francisco. The novel contains photos of landscapes and buildings from the era, which is a rarity in adult fiction but actually works quite well. At times, the novel meanders a little too much and probably could have afforded to discard a few of the less important details, particularly at the beginning. However, the last half of the book is wonderful, and the ending is beautifully written and perfectly wraps up the story. Fans of books like The Time Traveler’s Wife should love Dream of Time. If you like the historical fiction, romance, or time-travel genres, this book should definitely be first on your reading list. It’s a relaxing book, great for a solitary evening in with a nice cup of tea or for taking to the beach to read under an...

Introducing Dream of Time

Fall into the past with a “heart-pounding” & “highly-recommended” time travel novel! Time travel. History. Love. Mystery… and one woman who wakes up in the middle of it all Each night, when Robin drifts off to sleep, she finds herself dreaming about the life of a woman in the Victorian age. She soon realizes it’s not a dream at all, but she is truly slipping into San Francisco’s past. While living two lives — one as a mom in the modern day, the other as a proper young lady at the turn of the century — she discovers how she’s being sent back to a bygone era is only the first mystery. A much more important question is why she’s there. With the help of a rookie police officer, Robin takes off on a spellbinding adventure, sifting through a century’s worth of clues to untangle the past — and to put love to the test. History, though, proves itself a worthy opponent, and she comes to experience firsthand how destiny can be kind and cruel in the same stroke.
