A Stitch In Time by Amanda James

A Stitch In Time

‘A Stitch In Time’ is another fabulous book from Choc Lit publishing, who are going from strength to strength at the moment.

What I liked about this one was that it’s very different from most romance stories and has a really interesting time travel twist.

The story follows Sarah Yates, a history teacher whose life has been turned upside down by circumstances she wouldn't have chosen, as she is approached by John Needler, handsome and mysterious, with a proposition that Sarah can hardly believe.

This is only the beginning of her adventures, which take her back in time to the Blitz, the time of the suffragette movement and the Old American West. In each period the historical details are created confidently, but not intrusively, and enhance the telling of the story.

‘A Stitch In Time’ has a bit of everything: a really emotional romance, lots of adventure, and quirky trips to historical times and far-flung places. All this combines to create a satisfying and gripping novel. Sarah’s story is skilfully handled so that we don’t know what the final outcome will be for her until right at the end, and it’s an outcome worth waiting for.

Overall, I found this a satisfying, enjoyable and intelligent read which I would highly recommend.

Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book.
