Deborah Shepherd’s review on Goodreads.
Apr 16, 2022
“Unputdownable.” “It was amazing.”
“When real estate agent Sarah Sutherland opens the door to the 18th century house she’s showing, she has no idea she’s in for the adventure of a lifetime. Set in present day and pre-Revolutionary War New England, Tory Roof gives us a thrilling romance, a plot twist I never saw coming, and heroes and villains enough for two centuries. It is also impeccably researched and presents a welcome slant on the part women played in creating our country. For history buffs, fans of romance and of time travel, and anyone who loves an engaging tale, well told. I found Tory Roof unputdownable and have already ordered the next book in the series.”

“I LOVED this book! I am a huge history buff (especially Civil War and Revolutionary War) as well as a longtime fan of time slip/time travel historical fiction. I feel as if this book was written just for me, and I didn’t want it to end. Starting the sequel now. I love the author’s writing style and her historical research is truly impeccable. Bravo!”

“Tory Roof is an unexpected adventure across time that juxtaposes life in pre-Revolutionary War America with the modern day. It’s a fascinating comparison and thrilling turn of events, especially if you’re intrigued by history! A woman exists as herself in both realms. She is confused at first but comes to understand it and master it over time. I loved it!”

“Wow, what a great book! Silver Line just led me into great memories of Boston and the Gardner Museum. I can envision the empty frames and the room the pictures once hung in so beautifully. The story develops with superb language and beautiful visualizations of Boston and Colorado. A page turner that I savored. Read it !”
What people are saying about Absent:
“I just finished Absent. Really enjoyed it. I liked that it was left ambiguous (about) how much of the “travels” were real, controlled by Tracee, controlled by Carter’s mind and /or controlled by substances. I have one question: did Tracee really have the powers and abilities she claimed?” — KMK
