On his way to battle, Knight Colwyn Haukswyrth comes face to face with an enemy he's never faced before—a woman from 2,000 years in the future.

Jessica Neale's faith is lost the day of her husband's death, and with it, her belief in love. In a journey to find peace, she encounters a gentle, green-eyed stranger who leads her to the ruins of the medieval castle, Gallimore.

On his way to battle, Colwyn Haukswyrth, knight of Gallimore, comes face to face with a storm the likes of which he's never seen, and a woman in the midst of it who claims to live centuries in the future. The Lady Jessica of Neale is an irksome, provoking bit of woman to be sure. And she's about to turn his beliefs on end.

The product of a family rooted in pain and evil, Colwyn has focused on naught but himself-until Jessica. To a mysterious prophecy stitched on a tapestry, through the invasion of Gallimore itself, Colwyn and Jessica are bound together by a lesson in forgiveness and love-a bond that might be strong enough to survive the grave.

Castles, battle-hardened knights, time travel and a bit of the supernatural—what’s not to love about this book?

It didn’t take but a few pages to get sucked into this story. The author has an easy, readable style that draws you in from the get-go. Terrifically developed characters, spot on historical elements, and a story with a message attached. I loved it! Both Jessica and Colwyn come into this story with baggage but not so much that it bogs the reader down. It only made them more interesting and approachable. I enjoyed the supernatural elements drizzled throughout the story. It brought out the horrific nature of the villain and also a means for bringing the hero and heroine together. Beautiful, beautiful story... one of the most passionate and sensual inspirational romances I’ve ever read and so beautifully written. If you like fantasy or historical, this is a must read!

This book was amazing! If you can’t afford to buy another book then ask your library to order a copy and borrow it, but whatever you do... read this story ASAP... I was in another world the entire time I read this story and it was a fabulous experience. What an escape. I felt their emotion, all of the characters’ fears, their joy, their longing for love. It was amazing. I can’t say enough great things about this story. The spiritual thread was incredible, too. And the gritty themes and edgy aspects of the romance were scrumptious. The end of the story brought it full circle and concluded in one of the most satisfying endings you can imagine. Not many books leave me smiling and sighing at the end. Gallimore was perfectly executed from start to finish. I saw no weaknesses whatsoever. This is being added to my best fiction of 2008 list.

...An historical love story with twists and turns that may leave you breathless at times, tearful at others, hopping mad, terrified and wistful.

This book is billed as historical fiction, but it is a very fine time travel tale. The author does a wonderful job of capturing a twenty first century woman’s trials and tribulations in the thirteen hundreds. Tarne and his mother are creepy, strange, and evil. I loved Colwyn, who is very strong and stoic, and his page Tagg is an engaging little boy. Jessica is a wonderfully well developed character, and I enjoyed reading about her struggles to survive and find her way home, and her reluctance to leave the man she falls in love with.
