Reenactor Dr. Charlotte Mallory has spent years perfecting the portrayal of her ancestor, Civil War Confederate surgeon Major Carlton Mallory. In the middle of the 150th anniversary reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Creek, she is hurled back in time and lands in the middle of the battle itself, and from there is catapulted into dangers that threaten her life and shatter her heart.
Charlotte is captured by Union soldiers during the battle and hauled before General Sheridan. The General only sees a Confederate surgeon who can solve a challenging problem for him, so he threatens Charlotte with the destruction of her 200-year-old ancestral home unless "he" agrees to rescue a Union spy from a Confederate hospital. To save her home and possibly her own life, she reluctantly agrees. After a harrowing journey to Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond, she finds her target, a handsome, green-eyed spy with a Minie ball in his gut and is now at death's door. Without a thought for long-term consequences, she returns with him to the future, where she has the technology to save his life.
While recovering from his gunshot wound in Charlotte's ancestral home, the spy, Major Michael Abraham "Braham" McCabe learns the man he works for, President Lincoln, was assassinated. Now Braham is determined to return to his century to prevent the assassination. When Charlotte refuses to help him, because it will change the future, he finds another way to get back to his own time.

Katherine created well-drawn, realistic characters; weaving a tantalising tale of believable time travel. Hard to predict was was going to happen next, making it difficult to stop listening. Cleverly written, and good narrating have made it a favourite in my collection.

One HUGE adventure...
This is a great book! This is book 2: the Sapphire Brooch. It is a story about time travel with politics, danger, loads of adventure, romance and history. A mystery box arrived one day and inside it was a brooch with some words inscribed. The brooch has the power to transfer the owner thru time. Back to the civil war days. What an adventure this brooch takes us on!
The author, Katherine Lowry Logan writes a fantastic book so full of details of the Civil War Days. The details are fantastic. On this adventure, we meet president Lincoln too. The narrator, Teri Schnaubelt delivers us a fantastic read full of multiple voices and accents. I really like Bram's voice and accent most. He is such a kind caring man. This book gave me the ability to close my eyes as I listened and I could imagine details as they were happening. The hard times they had back then. Lack of medicines and knowledge. This story touched me to the core! Listening about the fires as the town burns! It made my eyes tear up!
More than anything, I loved how long the book is! The author has given us so much more than our money's worth. What a fantastic job!

The Sapphire brooch
Which scene was your favorite?
This was a fully satisfying novel The intrigue, rescues, dangers and trial had me on the edge of my seat. Braham was tortured and Charlotte was overly stubborn. I thought for certain we weren't going to get a HEA.I hope there is another book in this series
