by Alexandra Bracken
Violin prodigy Etta Spencer is suddenly pulled back in time, to hundreds of years ago in 1776 as part of a dangerous and risky scheme by the time-manipulating dynasty, the Ironwoods. Struggling to survive with her life unravelling around her, she and fellow time traveller Nicholas Carter must, against all odds, find a way to defeat the Ironwoods and return home. But as they delve further into the threads of time, will there be a home to return to?
A combination of historical fiction, adventure, romance, and time travel combining to create a truly wonderful book, with a heart-racing plot and vividly imagined characters. Alexandra Bracken has created a suspenseful and thrilling world, where the secrets of time are controlled by the elite, and only the boldest can dare to defy them.
