ARC Review: A Tale of Two Centuries by Rachel Harris

Hi Everyone!

Today I am reviewing:

A Tale of Two Centuries by Rachel Harris
Publication Date: August 6th, 2013
Publisher: Entangled Publishing 
Source- E-ARC sent by Heather Riccio 

My Review:

This magnificent story leaves me metaphorically with a delighted smile and eyes that are shaped like hearts. These hearts relate my love for this beautiful story.

Less was my favorite character from the first book and remains so. I enjoyed seeing her grow, not just in confidence, but also in knowing what she really wants and becoming fully proud of her identity. I love our connection becoming joyful and separate from the world while acting.

“You will always have me. [ … ] It matters not whether I’m here in body or merely in your heart. We are family, Cat.” Pg. 111 of my ARC.

My favorite relationship is the caring one between Less and Cat. A friendship strong and true bonded by more then sharing time-travel magic. Bonded by understanding and determination.

The story was an exciting one. I never read a book featuring a historical person visiting modern day before. Everyone I could hope for resided in this book. There were relatable awkward experiences and enjoyable water activities. The story graces two sweet growing love relationships.

The writing is smooth. I relish every word and moment. I holler with love this story where Less experiences a world anew. Really, her ways of describing the contemporary world were genuine to what I believe would be the view of a 1500’s girl.  

In the end, I say thank you Rachel Harris for writing this unforgettable story. I am anticipating the next. Could, maybe, Less’s brother Cipanio appear?

Flirt Squad Challenge: Reasons Austin Makes Me Blush:
  1. Firm determination. "One way or another, Alessandra, I'm Yours until your get rid of me." pg. 284 of my E-ARC. 
  2. Appreciates another. "And being with you this week, watching you and seeing how trusting and honest you are, how much you care about everyone ... Alessandra, it changed something in me." pg. 242 of my E-ARC
  3. Winks!
  4. Adventurous and has great ideas like Jet-Sking.
  5. His powerful hug. "Gathering me to his chest, he curls his shoulders around me as if he can protect me" pg. 282 of my E-ARC 
Thanks for reading!
