Cornwall, England, 2020. Sunny Chambers has been having dreams. Dreams of a dark
haired man with amazing blue eyes and even more amazing moves. She never had these
types of dreams until she moved to her late grandmother’s house in Cornwall.
She’s friends with the local Pagan shop owner, Celeste The woman, a witch, gave Sunny
a lucky locket to wear and keeps telling her that her dreams may come true. And while
the city librarian and the elders can tell her about when every building in town was built,
there’s no information on just when her grandmother, Hannah’s cottage was built.
And Cornwall’s community of Pagans love a good mystery. A raven is seen, the
harbinger of trouble ahead, and that trouble may include a man that many people in
town are wary of, especially Celeste and her friend Willow. The Viscount Nathaniel Fox,
owner of the foreboding Grey House on the hill has shown up in town after an absence,
and he’s watching Sunny.
Sunny is preoccupied with the man of her dreams. As she talks to the two ladies, she
finds out that the man walking through her dreams, and her bed, could be Cullen
Thaine, a man from the 1800s who mysteriously disappeared from the town and history.
When she wakes up in 1820, she’s in the cottage, but it’s not her bed and there are male
voices coming from the stairwell. Voices belonging to the mysterious Nathaniel Fox
and…the man she was making love to in her dreams.
The book follows Cullen and Sunny from the revelation that Fox is trying to send Cullen
on a ship that isn’t what it looks to be, to 2020 and another confrontation with Fox, one
that Sunny may not walk away from.
This is a good first book in a series I’m looking forward to. Saskia Walker has crafted a
time-travel story with a lot of Pagan elements and very well painted mind pictures. I
could see the house in Raven’s Landing that Sunny is renovating. I could hear the
dialogue and the characters talking.
And it’s fun.
