A Thrilling Trip Through Time!

Julia Hughes' debut novel, "A Ripple in Time - Angel of the Titanic" is a wonderful novel with a unique concept.  It's not your every day time travel story.

The story begins in the present day with Wren's dreams intertwining with the dreams of Carina, who is a passenger on the Titanic.  As a result of this entanglement she learns from Wren's mind what actually happens to the ship she is sailing on.  She warns  the captain and disaster is averted.  Or is it?

The change in the course of history from this ripple in the fabric of time results in a different world that is darker and much less advanced.  World War I has never ended and has become a 'cold war'.  Women still do not vote and life is hard.

Wren knows that he needs to make things right again.  He enlists the help of his cousin Rhyllann and Carrie, who is a descendent of Carina.  He shares a special mental bond with Carrie and they grow close along the way.

Once they make it on to the Titanic the difficulty lies in allowing the crash to occur and not changing the original history.

This is truly a fascinating read!  I loved the whole concept of the altered reality.  The pace and action kept me rooted to the pages.  There was a little bit of everything in it.  Love, danger, humor and fantasy.  Enjoy!

  2. ok, you got me,sounds interesting, not my normal read, but I be glad to read it ! many thanks! @nocateman on twitter,

  3. reminds me of a time when i was trying to give the dog a ham. seems my uncle freddie came in and salted the ham, everything needed salt in those days. then my other uncle freddie came in and gave it a dash o' salt and pepper... when my aunt, who we call unlce freddie (we call everyone in my family uncle freddie) she spruced it up a bit with a touch o' salt as well.

    by the time the ham came out of the oven, it was so salty nobody wanted it, so we tossed it to the dog.

    even the dog didn't want it. he drug it out to the woods and buried it.

    sometimes, you can't even give away a ham.

  7. Hi Kate, and thanks for all your hard work and support for indie authors - and for a wonderful review. It is interesting to read other's comments as always, though I'm on someone's fried egg list on Twitter (don't ask!) the salty ham anology made me smile - next time I'll offer refreshments too!
