Cape Helm, Maine, 1999. Beautiful, charming Shaelyn Sumner has never had time for love. With few friends and no true home, her job as a reporter has sent her all over the country in search of a story. Now this search has led her to Cape Helm, Maine, as the historic town prepares for the new millennium. While dressing for the reenactment of an 1830s wedding, she discovers an old-fashioned emerald and diamond ring, which she slips onto her finger for safekeeping. But when she appears for the ceremony, things seem strangely different... Cape Helm, Maine, 1830. Shaelyn had thought it was an act. But when she misses the town's familiar modern landmarks, she begins to realize that the ring has taken her back in time! Not only is it stack fast on her finger, trapping her in the past, but the very real ceremony she was just in has left her legally married to the handsome Alec Hawthorne, the very man who has mysteriously appeared in her dreams for as long as she can remember. Now, for the first time in her life, Shaelyn feels like she really belongs. But can the ring that brought them together keep her united with the man she loves for all time?

Distant Dreams was a bit different in terms of other time travel books I have read. Most of the time you see the character thrown through time due to some accident and once they realize what has happened they try to act accordingly to the time period. Shaelyn is a different, she finds herself thrown back in time and she doesn't even try to act the part at first. As a matter of fact she acts a little crazy to the standards of the 1830's! This book was definitely a great romance and it was so funny from the start. It was very real, because I know I would probably act a little crazy if something like this happened to me! This is the second book I have read from Jenny Lykins and I am very much liking her writing. This book was awesome, from start to finish!
