Four years ago, Rosalind Courtenay stumbled from the 19th century to the twenty-first, where she has since been trapped, leaving her husband and baby behind. Now she found her way back.

Of course, the problem is how to explain to her husband her absence. Does he think she left him? Is he married again? Is he happy in his new life? Rosalind decides to dress up, hoping to answer her questions before appearing at his doorstep. Instead, the turn of fate confused her with her young son’s new governess.

Rosalind is going to reveal herself as soon as Augustus returns home from business. Until then, she will meet her son, a quiet child left inexplicably by an endless governess. That’s when the persecution begins. Rosalind has finally returned home and someone – or someone – not just wants them gone. They want her dead.

I really enjoyed A Stitch in Time and was delighted to be back at Thorne Manor. In The Turn of Destiny, Rosalind Courtenay inadvertently walks through Thorne Manor, leaving her husband and baby behind. It finds itself in the 21st century and cannot return. Seeing Bronwyn and William Thorne, she realizes they had to make the most of their time. After four years, she can finally return home. Her son is a stranger, and worse, she is thought to be dead. She, who appears as the son’s new governess, waits for her husband Augustus to return, but an unsuccessful game takes place and the son sees ghosts.

Imagine you find yourself in another time! The Rosalinds did well, but longed to return home. I liked her confidence and felt when she became a maid in her home. I would have liked her to introduce herself as herself, but I understood why she was waiting for the man to return. Before they disappeared, they both had rough patches, and Augustus seems to think she gave them up.

The Moorish ghost, the ruling housekeeper and the mystery all complemented the sweet romance of the family. I easily ate it in a few sessions. The flow, the characters, and the storyline intrigued me. I enjoyed seeing Bronwyn and William.

The mystery was created frantically before we came to a satisfactory conclusion. I look forward to more of this series. I read the first book and later picked up an audio book. The stories are perfect for sound and with paranormal elements and secrets. It’s great for listening in the fall.

Gemma Dawson told an amazing story. It captured the characters, the atmospheric atmosphere and reinforced the overall story.

About Kelley Armstrong

author photo

Kelley Armstrong told stories even before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If they asked for a story about girls and dolls, her teachers would always show dead girls and evil dolls. All efforts to force her to create “normal” stories have failed. Today, she continues to spin stories of ghosts, demons, and werewolves, securely locked in the basement of her cellar writing. She is the author of NYT’s best-selling paranormal tension series “Women from Beyond the World” and the youngest adult urban fantasy trilogy “Darkest Powers”, as well as the criminal series “Nadia Stafford”. Armstrong lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, children and too many pets.
