Publisher's Summary

If someone took everything you live for, how far would you go to get it back?
When offered a one-way trip to the past, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating present - and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives 20 years in the past, buck naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned but enraptured 19-year-old to change their future. Definitely easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that's a heart breaker, save the world or not.
This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it's the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn't have the proper footwear. It's a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for diehard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist.

Starlight in the Darkness.

I enjoyed the story, the depth and detail and emotion that Noah and Erin bring to Orton's book was beautiful and I love listening them. I love Orton's writing too much and there are not enough star increments, A year ago I would have said" no I didn't cry in this one either, reading the reviews where people were crying from the start, I think my heart must have frozen over with the cold" but I got the emotional and cried and laughed and cried again, I got the feels and that is what I expect and get from Orton...and the snark ;)Time travel is always confusing but this had masterful,intricuit twists and minute,subtle turns that reveled themselves to be a litererry diamond in the sky.I thoughroughly enjoyed this book.I have issues with my eyes and on a day where I cant open my eyes this brought light in to my world and let me see through the eyes of three artists .What more can a girl ask for?I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.As always this is my honest opinion

Romance

I was given this review review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a good book and I liked it. For the most part, I liked the characters. It was heavily focused on romance, more so than I had expected. It follows three different times and the relationship between Isabel and Diego through time, break ups and a dystopian future. The writing itself was good and I think D. L. Orton is a very good author, especially if this is her debut novel.

However, the pacing of the book threw me a little and it was quite difficult to tell which time they were in when reading (or listening). Also the characters themselves could be quite annoying; for instance, Diego hits on Isabel literally seconds after meeting her after 15 years. Could at least say hello first?
