Time-Slip Romance at the Time of the Alamo
What a well-written story, and what a twist at the end! I would love to know how Aubrey and Tapley’s story continues after that! I’ll admit that I tend to pick up most time-travel or time-slip romances because I love both history and romantic tales. This one was definitely different but in a good way. The heroine is a modern-day Texas college student. A truck accident somehow pulls her back 1836 before the infamous Battle of the Alamo. She has assumed, apparently, another young woman’s life, complete with a somewhat of a jerk fiance. Life in 1830s Texas is rough in general and particularly tough on women. Unlike many historical romances, the author doesn’t sugarcoat the role of women at the time. The true hero, Tapley, is the almost stereotypical strong-and-silent type, though the author has given him more depth than that would suggest. It’s easy to see why Aubrey falls for him, and of course, we do too. But what is Aubrey to do and how is she to react, knowing what history has in store for people that she has come to care about? The author brings all the feels as Aubrey faces all of this and the aftermath. I love, too, how the author wove in real people like Davy Crockett and actual events. An exceptionally well-done time travel romance that explores a unique moment in American and Texas history.
