Another Time, Another Place by T. Sue VerSteeg

After discovering that her boyfriend and best friend had become intimate, Tessa Garrett was more than ready for her trip to England. Determined to enjoy her vacation, Tessa puts the betrayal out of her mind as she arrived at the bed-and-breakfast. She wanted to remain focused on her mission to discover if the castle in her childhood dreams was really Hadley Castle, now in ruins. Over dinner, the proprietor’s brother, a local historian, told Tessa many wonderful stories about the castle and its inhabitants, which strengthened Tessa’s determination to visit the castle as soon as possible.

The next day, while Tessa was touring the ruins, it began raining heavily. As Tessa ran for the shelter of the building, she fell and knocked herself unconscious. The next thing Tessa was aware of was the sound of horses and was startled by the appearance of a man who looked like her cheating boyfriend. Soon, Tessa became more aware of her surroundings and realized that this bedroom was well appointed with fine furniture and silks but without electricity. A jousting tournament was in progress outside, and everyone was dressed in a medieval style. When the man returned, he introduced himself as Eric Bartholomew of Hadley Castle. Eric was a generous host, providing Tessa with food, shelter, and clothing, and invited her to join him on a tour of the castle and grounds. Though Tessa believed she was dreaming at first, eventually she realized she had been transported to “the year of our Lord, Twelve Hundred and Seventeen,” where she felt more at home than she did in the 21st century.

Tessa seems somewhat flat at first, but really comes alive once she awakens in 1217. The medieval characters are well developed and believable, and I wondered if that was done deliberately as a way to highlight Tessa’s comfort level with the earlier time. Eric is a strong man who takes his responsibility as Lord of the castle very seriously and seems to be fair and reasonable in his decisions. All would be well if not for the presence of Gretchen, and that mystery is finally solved towards the end of the story.

I loved this book! There are several pleasant twists on the way. This is a definite must-read for any time-traveling romantics.

About Mary

My name is Mary, and I’m a serious book junkie, with a large personal collection of reading material. I’m fascinated by ghosts, the paranormal, and true crime stories. I love discovering the possibilities in the next world and am curious about the reasons people do what they do in this one. I’ve been reading since the age of 3, and always have a book or two or three going. I’m an elementary school substitute teacher, and I always have a book or two in my “bag of tricks”. My new favorite is “Frog in a Bog”. My husband and daughter do not share my passion for books, and secretly think I’ve gone over the top with my collecting and reading habits, but I firmly believe there are worse habits I could have!
