"Instantly engaging, constantly suspenseful, ultimately poignant and satisfying. Loved it!"--Diana Gabaldon, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Outlander series
When fragile, sixteen-year-old Hope Walton loses her mom to an earthquake overseas, her secluded world crumbles. Agreeing to spend the summer in Scotland, Hope discovers that her mother was more than a brilliant academic, but also a member of a secret society of time travelers. And she's alive, though currently trapped in the twelfth century, during the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine. Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Passing through the Dim, Hope enters a brutal medieval world of political intrigue, danger, and violence. A place where any serious interference could alter the very course of history. And when she meets a boy whose face is impossibly familiar, she must decide between her mission and her heart—both of which could leave Hope trapped in the past forever.
Why did I add Into the Dim to my bookshelf?
I downloaded this book from NetGalley in January 2016 so I have had it for a while. I don’t remember if I requested it or fell victim to one of those emails that promised it as a Read Now title for a limited time. I have added way too many books because of those emails. Anyway, I clicked on it and it has sat on my NetGalley shelf for over 6 years so it is time for me to finally read it. I actually bought a copy of the audiobook recently and started listening to it yesterday so I am well on my way to crossing this one off my list!
What are your thoughts? Have you read this book? Would you recommend it?
