I really like time travel stories and this series is so well done. The transition from 1819 England to present day New York City was smooth, even if the characters saw a bit of trouble. I liked seeing modern day New York through the eyes of Margaret. It was so surprising and neat to know that Margaret and Julian plopped right into a Jane Austen conference. The prayer shawl that allowed the time jump had a mind of it’s own when it became whole again after it had been torn apart. That just made for a logistical challenge. Because of the conference, Margaret meets Stewart, who is doing his degree in 19th Century female authors. They find much in common and the shawl does some matchmaking. The shawl works it’s magic and and lets people go to the time period they were meant to be in.
I liked the quotes at the chapter beginnings which gave advice from historical figures.
This was a fascinating premise. Also fascinating is the lady, a completed Jew, who makes the shawls and tells the recipient that the Holy Spirit chooses who she should sell to.
Suspend disbelief and enjoy this romantic story.

At a Jane Austen conference, she meets Stewart Russell, a grad student studying early British female writers. Stewart is immediately taken with Margaret and her effortless use of the speech and manners of Jane's day—until she claims to be FROM Jane's day! Worse, due to a mix-up, he is a wanted man and the clock is ticking. Margaret must find a way to get them both back to 1819—before the unthinkable happens.
