Acies Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret When she discovers the truth Addy must take matters into her own hands The stakes Her chance at true love and the life she's meant to li. It could be dreadful it could be fantastic But it s definitely a possibility for the history project so keeping it in mind or rather in my Goodreads virtual mindMy LJ write up which had as subject More history fail probably easier to read there though I ve tried to do some re formatting hereIt s been a while since I ve done any and it s been a while since I finished this book but the strength of my feeling about it hasn t faded much It s actually a wonderful book in some ways for steepholm and me because its use of historical setting two of them actually is so openly costume and romance type of historical that I almost wondered at times if it wasn t tongue in cheek It s not Won t name this book despite the fact that it got a good review in Kirkus because it doesn t seem to be selling that wildly I will give the name in comments if anyone is curiousAs I said this is time travel from one historical setting to an older one which is an interesting choice To do time travel by any kind of mechanical means a machine rather than a portal say will reuire some engagement with modern science obviously even if the scientific mechanism isn t explored much But this one starts in 1913 which allows for a softer fuzzier take on the how of the time travel not that I think it s a successful oneThe 1913 small town England setting is treated uite differently from the medieval one in that the relationship with history seems rather different in the two The heroine Addy is the fifteen year old daughter of an unmarried seamstress in a small nosy village and I didn t get beyond the third page before my head started shaking Somehow Addy s mother has managed to keep her in school which is unlikely in itself but it s far unlikely that the better off girls in the school know that her mother is unmarried and taunt her by calling her bastard and her mother a slut Okay maybe this is just in the realm of the possible but it s all extremely unlikely 1 The mother probably couldn t have kept her baby without any family support 2 if she d got enough money from someone the father being the obvious source to do so she d have adopted an honorific Mrs and become a widow somewhere 3 the mothers who told their daughters that Addy was illegitimate which they wouldn t have would have very likely refused to give her mother their custom IF again extremely unlikely her daughter had been in the same school as their respectable little darlings Women who could sew and needed the money they d get from doing so were not exactly a rarity at the timeWhen Addy gets into a fight at school her mother carries through on her threat to take her out of school and put her in service A place just happens to open up for Addy at the house of a very wealthy but eccentric and with tragic history gentleman which Addy gets despite her lack of experience and the great desirability of the position When the woman who held the position before Addy gives her a run down on her job there are some really glaring slips First she tells Addy that Mr Greenwood likes to keep the drapes closed But I say a person needs proper light for vacuuming For one thing vacuum as a verb is not a British usage Then she goes on to show Addy the vacuum calling it a nasty heavy unwieldy thing But a vacuum cleaner was not at all a commonplace item owned by every household rather a luxury and the woman who worked there wouldn t have seen many newer better machines if she ever saw a vacuum cleaner at all Much likely that she d just have swept the room rugs and all this was still common practice in the 50s and probably beyond None of this really matters much except that it adds to the sense that the historical setting is playing at Upstairs Downstairs or just the maid costume part of that than having a solid sense of the class structure and life of people in that world at that timeMost likely in fact I think it s merely plot device of a rather clumsy sort because when Addy accidentally stumbles through the time machine she finds in the forbidden room and goes home with her hair askew and her dress torn her mother s anger assuming she s been fighting again leads her to decide to make Addy leave this position and send her off to be a scullery maid Life would have been very precarious for a single woman with no financial security for heaven s sake what mother would do something as insane as that Not many but of course it gives the protag motivation to go back in time for reals to avoid the unfairness of her fateBefore I start on the 1240 part I might add that this book doesn t work for me at all well even if I set aside the history fail It s first person present tense which doesn t help I find Addy a pain and the romance is about as vivid as an abandoned dog chew There is however this very memorable line It s the second but the first is needed for intro And then I see him The lad with the eyesAh it must be true love Unless this medieval life is a lot harder than Addy s realised and the description is actually a useful one to distinguish this lad from the other villagersLJ cut reads So grab your tablecloth throw it over your shoulders and come along to 1240Yes Addy seriously does throw on the tablecloth she happens to have in her hands when she goes into the time machine and with that her apron wrapped around her head and a pin for her cloak brooch I look as if I belong In fact she passes for a fine lady Easily fooled them medieval folkHere s her first sight of them but then I see there are people coming up the dusty road And it s the most wonderful thing they look like they ve stepped from the pages of Robin Hood There are men and a boy in earth colored tunics belted at the waist with leggings snugged to their calves and funny little night cap hats A handful of women chatter along in browns and greens their headdresses strapped like bandages across their foreheads and under their chins hiding all their hair so their faces shine out like the centers of daisies A straggle of children brings up the rearWhen she s completed her transformation the tablecloth and apron of course she follows the people rounds a bend and I gasp at what s before me a perfect little walled town its gate open wide colorful pennants flapping in the breeze Half timbered houses crowd the narrow street their upper stories jutting out overhead I m in a river of people surging past shop fronts and whitewashed walls past shutters thrown open to display bread or cloth or meat inside Notice that being in this river of people has none of the drawbacks one might expect from the time Oh the air sings to my senses with the scent of meat pies wafting from laden trays a rainbow of fabrics spilling out across tables the lilting strains of a flute Nothing about less pleasant scentsAnd on and on in the same strain When she goes back to stay she prudently sets the lift timer to return for her in 15 days so she has a chance to come back if she can t make a new life for herself in 1240 though she has no real worries And make it she does passing as the Lady Matilda who s shipwrecked just below the castle on her way to marry the local lord conveniently not around initially while she settles in There are a few embarrassing attempts on her part to speak authentically a note at the end mentions the fact that the author felt free to ignore facts of history like Addy s actually needing to speak French which involves her throwing around verilys and prithees but anything off in her behaviour is put down to her having hit her head when shipwreckedThere s plenty that makes no sense at all like Addy s recognising a lift because she and her mother were in one when they took the train to the city to buy her school things Or the fact that she s gone to films and it s not even mentioned as an enormous luxury An unmarried woman in the early 1900s with a child to support by sewing has money for school and buying school things presumably uniform stuff and sending her daughter to the pictures on a fairly regular basis how Or in 1240 her intended husband Sir Hugh who s repeatedly said to live for fighting and jousting when he can t get the real thing being enraptured by the lessons in farming techniues he and his steward get in fact drinking up his words like the finest wine But by that point the book wouldn t have been salvageable even without Sir Hugh s unbelievable behaviour Except as I said that it s so out there in its failOf course I have to repeat what I ve said before that I m using fail in a rather specific way and I don t mean that the book is bad The lad with the eyes aside I do mean that the historical settings aren t at all accurately portrayed and seem to be playing dress up than exploring at all realistically what it might have been

When Addy is swept back in time she couldn't be happier to leave her miserable life behind Now she's mistaken for Lady Matilda the pampered ward of the king If Addy can play her part she'll have glorious gowns jewels and some. I was entranced Up till now that I had put down my Android phone I m still faze by the time I spent reading this book I can imagine my own self getting curious by the locked room opening it hearing the door creaked open after fifteen years and discovering a lid revealing a time machine inside Up till now I still haven t recovered on the fact that few minutes had already passed since I ve read it in just one day It s just that amazing Plot Summary Adelaine Addy Morrow is a fifteen year old girl who was born in a poor family and grew up without a father Despite of the poverty she still has big dreams and still holds her head high showing to everyone that even if she was a poor girl she wasn t like any other And because of this she was always bullied by Caroline and her friends and is a nobody at school A school play is coming up and Addy was chosen to be a ueen and this enraged Caroline She started teasing her and Addy couldn t take it any and she hit her As a punishment Addy s mother made her uit school and work as a maid to Mr Alec Greenwood a very rich old man who lost his wife and son and still kept searching in the woods hoping to find his lost baby who was two years old when he got missingAlec and Addy became friends and she added color to the old man s dull life One day while Addy was about to put a table cloth to the linen s shelf she passed by the locked room where she was forbidden to enter Wondering what could be inside she inserted the key to the lock and the door creaked open after fifteen years and went inside She then noticed a lid and opened it revealing a series of numbers and buttons She then pulled the lift on the side and was plunged into another time changing her life forever What I Love and Dislike Plot is one of the things that made me fall in love with this book I m really interested in historical fiction to know about the Middle Ages Renaissance Period Greek Period Egyptian Period and many others This is the reason why I read this But as beautiful as the plot may be there are a lot of clich s that made me roll my eyes and already predict what will happen next And guess what it did happen But clich s are hard to avoid since you can t just wish to have an extraordinary idea and ta daa a uniue idea So I do understand why a lot of authors are using clich s The characters is another factor I like I do admire Adelaine Addy Morrow for not giving up and still have a high self confidence despite of poverty Even if she was in the low class she still thinks she belong to the high ones and that s what I love about her I myself think that I m not like any other But as good as it can be like any other things it has its own disadvantages Thinking highly of oneself can lead for others to get annoyed thinking you ve got a big ego or maybe to jealousy that might lead to bullying for not all people can have such high self esteem Anyway Addy is someone that almost everyone can relate to I love how Emily Whitman made Addy who is kind of materialistic thinking expensive things can make her happy into someone who is mature and a person who learned a lot of things in life I love her self development throughout the book William or James Greenwood is a character just like Daniel from Fallen and Lucas from Starcrossed I almost fell in love with him He s kind compassionate and easy to be around guy like you can tell him everything and someone who will always be there for you I m not that really surprised that Addy fell for him Ever since their first eye contact I already know they ll end up together He s also handsome and got amazing skills as a falconer He was someone every girl dreams for I do really wish someone like him still exists in this world And many other characters that caught my eye like Beatrix a kind and motherly temporary lady in waiting of Addy and Mr Alec Greenwood a genius old man view spoiler who invented the time machine hide spoiler

    25 stars This took a while to get going There were some things that I thought were kind of unbelievable like how a table cloth pinned over her shoulders and an apron tied around her hair make her look like she fits in with the time period; how a couple of people so easily believed her story that she was from the future; and Mr Gre
