In this mesmerizing romance, a woman out of time falls in love with a man for whom time is running out. "Kent combines time travel, mystery, and romance in a delightful sequel to Persistence of Memory that's easily accessible for new readers." --Publishers Weekly Starred Review In Winona Kent's novel Persistence of Memory, Charlie Lowe, a young widow in Stoneford, England, was accidentally transported back to 1825, where she fell in love with Shaun Deeley, a groom employed at Stoneford Manor. They are only back in the present for seemingly a breath before a piece of wartime shrapnel sends them tumbling back through time to 1940, the height of the Blitz. There, they discover pieces of Charlie's past that counter everything she thought she knew about herself. Charlie and Shaun have decisions to make--do they interfere in time's progress to save a man? Do they put their own future at risk by doing nothing? And how much time do these two lovers have left?
