Publisher's Summary

Eve and Patrick Gantly are living a normal life in 2019 New York, preparing to celebrate the Christmas season. To their delight, Eve is three months pregnant.

Despite their happiness, Eve is having premonitions that something dreadful is about to occur. Concerned about the future and the safety of their child, she insists that they destroy the time-travel lantern. Patrick is more cautious.

One afternoon when Patrick is out, a sinister man breaks into the apartment and forces Eve to give him the lantern. A day later, Patrick shadows a woman who has been staking out the Gantlys' brownstone apartment, and he confronts her. To his and Eve's utter shock, they learn that Lucy Rose is from 1924 and that she time-traveled with the man who took the lantern. She offers to sell the lantern back to Eve and Patrick, and they reluctantly agree, hoping to keep it out of unscrupulous hands. 

Convinced that the lantern is a threat to their future happiness, Eve and Patrick decide to destroy it. But the lantern has more power than they could have ever imagined. Once the lantern is destroyed, Eve's life is completely changed. She must set off on an adventure in a struggle that will return her to the past.

Fantastic, fun, educational

I enjoyed this book as well as her first book very much. I read it during the Covid 19 pandemic and it certainly helped to fill the hours and days of boredom in quarantine. It took my mind off of the terrible uncertainties, like I was being swept away to another fantastical place in time. It also helped me to appreciate the freedoms and conveniences that we enjoy by living in the 21st century. I learned a lot about our country’s history as well. Both of the books in this series would make wonderful movies, especially during the Christmas season!

The whole story once again

Not sure if that one wasn't the best of all the three.

So the story continues. The plot is quite interesting. Although there were some parts when I just snapped "srsly", it's quite pleasant in general. Even the leitmotiv of Eve's admirer is not that disturbing as it was in the previous parts. I also got used to the narrator and I must say, I started to really like her.

The ending was a bit like written in a hurry and not fully justified - however, that opens up a continuity of the series but will there be another parts? Who knows.
