Based in Headley Cross in 1841, the story contains the train crash from Woodley of the same year. I changed events slightly to fit my story line - the train is going in the opposite direction at a slightly different time of day. But the death toll etc is true to the real event.
Sonning Cutting is perhaps half a mile from where we live. We often drive over the bridge, stop and watch the trains pass by underneath on the main Reading to London line.
Touching a milestone, Joni Peterson is catapulted through time into a world both familiar and strange. Finding herself in Victorian England, she discovers love in the most unexpected place— at the feet of the man whose carriage knocked her down.
Lord Sebastian Tyler needs to remarry, but preferably not a woman of his mother’s choosing. The woman his carriage runs over both irritates and fascinates him. Could she be the answer to his prayers?
Will the arrow of love find them both before time runs out and the portal to the present reopens?
