Can a twenty-first century independent woman find her true destiny, in thirteenth century Scotland? At his father’s bidding, Cade MacKenzie begs a favor from Laird Macrae - Lady MacKenzie desperately needs the renowned Macrae midwife. Laird Macrae has no intention of sending his clan’s best, instead he passes off Elsie, a young woman with little experience, as the midwife they seek. But fate - in the form of a mysterious older woman and an extraordinary pocket watch - steps in. Elizabeth Quinn, a disillusioned obstetrician, is transported to the thirteenth century. She switched souls with Elsie as the old woman said she would but other things don’t go quite as expected. Perhaps most unexpected was falling in love with Cade MacKenzie.

Five Huge Boundless Stars

This book was awesome from beginning to end. If that's all I could write I would. I'm a lover of time travel romances, but I can say, so far this is my favorite. Elizabeth is an OB in her time. When she gets switched into Elsie, a young girl from Scotland from 1279, she finds herself in quite the predicament. Her laird is trying to deceive another laird and she is sent as "the most skilled midwife" to tend to the Lairds wife. In all actuality the real Elsie is none of these things, but her laird doesn't know of the change that has occurred. She finds her self falling in love with the lairds son at the new castle. She soon finds love and a sense of family in this new life. She finally finds all she has ever searched for. I just loved this book. From beginning to end it was amazing. It had time travel, romance, action, and hope. It had a colorful group of characters that would be hard not love, even Sir Cade! It was the best book I have read in a long time. I can't wait to read more from such an amazing author. She has definitely gained a new fan.
