Her story from there is one of heartache and revival. I have read many time travel romances. I always read them and think I can never find one that's better than the last, but I was wrong.

When Finn, lead by a staunch belief that Catholics are being unfairly treated contributes to a dangerous and treacherous scheme that backfires bringing dea "The Hands of Time" a loosely-based historical romance heats up when Valerie Crane a divorcee haunted by her ex-husband's infidelity is swept back in time to Yealm Castle in the year When Finn, lead by a staunch belief that Catholics are being unfairly treated contributes to a dangerous and treacherous scheme that backfires bringing death to all involved, Valerie turns to Alexander in their grief and remorse only to wonder if love can live again in a broken heart with the brother who's kept his distance, loving her in silence.
Caught in a romantic triangle with two brothers who are both smitten, Valerie never expected to find love after her ex-husband in the modern world betrayed her. Set against the injustices of religious intolerance of that era and Guy Fawkes "Gunpowder Plot" the plot quickly heats up when Valerie falls for the impulsive Finn whose beliefs lead him on a destructive path that could lead to death and the financial ruin of his family.
Although an interesting story line with a poisoning, political plotting and storm on the high seas there's a lack of buildup in intensity and suspense in the calamities that befall the family. There is also a lack of realism as the era was governed by strict decorum and code of behaviour which would have labelled Valerie as a wanton when she has sex with Finn.
However these problems do not delineate from the enjoyment of the romance.
Perry Como - The Hands Of Time (Brian's Song) Lyrics
The plot switches between the past and present with a dash of mystery that includes an antique ormolu clock set 4 hours ahead, a student who disappeared thirty years before and a painting of Louisa's missing sister that suddenly shows up in the gallery where she works. But the main plot revolves around Valerie's life and romances in Swiftly the story progresses to a climax that promises another book in" the Hands of Time" series. Valerie Crane is the bitter and angry woman whose ex-husband betrayed her. Swept back in time she's scared and perplexed, not knowing where she is or who to trust.
A passionate, spirited but shy young woman she succumbs to Finn's flirtatious charm and ends up having an affair that quickly is followed by a marriage proposal. Alexander Whitfield is the thoughtful, intelligent steadfast but melancholy older brother who's haunted by the loss of his wife and finds it hard to show his feelings. Yet in the end it's Alexander's unwavering commitment and love that wins Valerie's heart. These main characters infuse the drama with passion, depth and a complexity that breathes life into the story.
I liked " The Hands of Time" with its time travel, romance and dash of mystery. Although I would only rate it a 3. Sep 24, Jeanne Johnston rated it it was ok. Ever since I read Outlander eons ago, there seems to have been an explosion of time travel romances yes, I know Christopher Reeve in Somewhere in Time predates all of them by another eon, but that's a movie. Some are halfway clever.
This seemed to leave the mechanism of the incident as a minor thing, though I see by the teaser afterwards that it was designed to drag out into another story or more. Somehow, I feel like I've got the gist and don't need to bother. Oct 23, Donna rated it it was amazing Shelves: It is no secret that I love time travel and historical romances.
This book was right down my alley. I loved the time travel plot. Aside from her first husband whom I disliked immensely , I loved the characters. I also liked how she sent her message to her sister in the present time. Book 2 is definitely going onto my TBR list.

Turn Back the Hands of Time
Maybe we should apologize. I wish we could turn back the hands of time and undo what we did to them. Two coworkers use the expression while talking about their children. My kids are getting older so fast! My youngest is already 8 years old! I know what you mean! It seems like just yesterday I was holding my children in my arms as little babies.
Fortunately, it's the tip of the iceberg on this terrific album that ranks among the finest soul records of its era. In a way, the single is a little misleading, since it is such a silky smooth, seductive tune that it gives the impression that everything on the album will be the same, and it's not.
Yes, the album has more than its fair share of strings, backing vocals, horns, and even harpsichords showcased on "If It's Love You're After" , but that doesn't mean this is so smooth that it becomes glossy and slick. Instead, it's luxurious, and Davis is able to deepen it with his nuanced, soulful interpretations; he's even given a chance to try bluesy funk with "Undying Love" and does a great slow ballad with "I Keep Coming Back.
