When Donna is sent back in time to Classical Athens, she’s furious at Dr. Stephens for sending her against her wishes. Then a Greek soldier purchases her to be his wife.
She’s forced to learn a new language and culture and faces her fears of never returning to her own time. The society hates her, especially because they think she’s an Amazon, which forces her to confront her issues—being compared to her genius brother, borderline abusive friends, and a cheating boyfriend.
But her husband, Peleus, is kind and patient. He counters all the negative voices from her past, but those voices drive a wedge between them. She must let go of her fears, her inhibitions, and insecurities, and admit her feelings, or she could lose him and the life they’ve built.
Review: I knew I was going to love everything about this book as soon as I saw it. Not only Athens, but ancient Athens! Yes please! I’m a sucker for time travel books, and this one did not disappoint. I especially enjoyed the fish out of water element with Donna trying to figure out how to survive in this world that is extremely different from the one she knows. But this girl definitely makes it work!
At times the dialogue was a little stilted, but for the most part, this was really well written. I fell in love with the characters right away and the world of ancient Greece came alive right off the page, including Donna’s jarring reaction to it.
I’d recommend this book for romance and history buffs alike!
