A passionate, sweeping novel of a love that transcends time.

When twenty-something Wall Street analyst Kate Wilson attracts the notice of the legendary Julian Laurence at a business meeting, no one's more surprised than she is. Julian's relentless energy and his extraordinary intellect electrify her, but she's baffled by his sudden interest. Why would this handsome British billionaire--Manhattan's most eligible bachelor--pursue a pretty but bookish young banker who hasn't had a boyfriend since college?

The answer is beyond imagining . . . at least at first. Kate and Julian's story may have begun not in the moneyed world of twenty-first-century Manhattan but in France during World War I, when a mysterious American woman emerged from the shadows of the Western Front to save the life of Captain Julian Laurence Ashford, a celebrated war poet and infantry officer.

Now, in modern-day New York, Kate and Julian must protect themselves from the secrets of the past, and trust in a true love that transcends time and space.

A masterpiece!

Oct 21, 2018

I have read a few of William’s later books and quite enjoyed them. This one not so much, the whole thing seemed like someone taking their first stab at writing. I did finish it, but not sure why.

I am agreeing with the so-so reviews. The strange dialogue between Kate and Julian is repeated conversations of non-acceptance and I find their honey dripped love, really odd and boring. this glowing perfect is too strange for me. Her other books I enjoyed much more. I don't care enough about these people to see what happens, i probably won't finish reading this one.

Let's be honest: Julian is MY WWI boyfriend. Kate can't have him!

Time travel is an interesting concept; however the story drags.

Jun 01, 2012

This is a quick, light, frothy read about love & the possibilities of time travel. It does require tremendous leaps of faith & suspension of belief as the author doesn't really ever explain how people are brought back & forth through time. It just kind of happens. What keeps you reading is the search for the identity of the person who threatens the lives of Julian & Kate but it's more romance novel than mystery. For a really good, thoughtful & more credible novel about love through time, read The Time Travellers's Wife.
