Following the unexplained disappearance of her parents, and in a last ditch attempt to save the antique store she has inherited from financial ruin, Sarah Lester takes on a deceased estate. Amongst the estate is a collection of vintage postcards which lead Sarah on a journey through time. Sarah is unprepared for what these postcards hint at about their reclusive former owner, and soon they complicate her life in unimaginable ways, transporting her to Victorian London, colonial New Zealand and to the British Raj in India. Sarah has to fight her twenty-first century instincts, and a century of emancipation, to survive.
Die Neuseeländerin Kirsten McKenzie war sowohl in England als auch Neuseeland Zollbeamtin, bis sie in dem Antiquitätenladen ihrer Eltern gearbeitet hat – und letzteres hat stark dieses Buch beeinflusst. “The time travel episodes are bound together by Sarah’s real-world, modern-day life as a second-hand and antiques shop owner in London. McKenzie’s historical scenes are well researched, and her modern-day London scenes reveal a fascinating side of the world of antique auctions. Her taut writing skills keep the many threads of this story separate but resolutely pulling towards the inevitable, dramatic climax.” (Leserin) (75 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 401 Seiten noch günstig?
