This was an amazing story. I almost don’t know where to begin. This author has such a gift for bridging the gap between the past and the present time. The flow of the story is fantastic. The very first page of this book pulls you into the story as if you were living it yourself. The historical portion of the story takes place in Boston. I really liked Noah and Emma, they were very likable and relatable characters
I loved the storyline of the tea chest. The mystery of it was so intriguing and so captivating. I loved story of Hayley and her loyalty to the Navy. I loved the teachable moments that flowed across the generations, and how the author demonstrates the struggles of the past are sometimes the same struggles in the present day. I thoroughly enjoyed this time slip novel, and I’m sure you will too. It’s definitely a must read.

Emma Malcolm’s father is staunchly loyal to the crown, but Emma’s heart belongs to Noah Winslow, a lowly printer’s assistant and Patriot. But her father has promised her hand to Samuel Clarke, a rapacious and sadistic man. As his fiancée, she would have to give up Noah and the friends who have become like family to her—as well as the beliefs she has come to embrace.
After Emma is drawn into the treasonous Boston Tea Party, Samuel blackmails her with evidence that condemns each participant, including Noah. Emma realizes she must do whatever it takes to protect those she loves, even if it means giving up the life she desires and becoming Samuel’s wife.
Lieutenant Hayley Ashworth is determined to be the first woman inducted into the elite Navy SEALs. But before her dream can be realized, she must return to Boston in order to put the abuse and neglect of her childhood behind her. When an unexpected encounter with the man she once loved leads to the discovery of a tea chest and the document hidden within, she wonders if perhaps true strength and freedom are buried deeper than she first realized.
Two women, separated by centuries, must find the strength to fight for love and freedom. . . and discover a heritage of courage and faith.
