Still mourning the loss of her beloved grandmother and shaken by her mysterious, dying request to “find the baby,” Abbi has just arrived at UW Madison for her freshman year. But on her second day, she wakes up to a different world: 1983. That is just the first stop on Abbi’s journey backward through time. Will is a charming college freshman from 1927 who travels forward through time. When Abbi and Will meet in the middle, love adds another complication to their lives. Communicating across time through a buried time capsule, they try to decode the mystery of their travel, find the lost baby, and plead with their champion, a kindly physics professor, to help them find each other again … even though the professor gets younger each time Abbi meets him. This page-turning story full of romance, twists, and delightful details about campus life then and now will stay with readers long after the book’s satisfying end.
Waking in Time by Angie Stanton
I received this book from the publisher for an honest review.
So when I saw the concept of the book I raised an eyebrow. I mean time travel through the time? I loved it. I am a huge historical fan so I figured this would be a great fit for me. Then when I read that the couple time traveling are falling in love but not traveling together…well my interest was even more piqued.
Abbi is sad and heartbroken that her grandmother has died. But she does what she had planned and goes to her grandmother’s college. She is hoping to “feel” her grandmother while living in campus. When she wakes after almost her first day she is starting to travel though time. She is really confused and is wondering what the heck is going on until she runs in to someone who will be helping her in her journey back through time.
Then we meet Will……YUMMY!! Will and Abbi have a history together. They are star crossed lovers who fall in love but then are pulled apart. When they keep writing notes to each other as they time travel. It was super sweet to see these two.
The mystery…oh yes my friends there is a mystery in the story. We know that Abbi has to find the…….nope not getting it from me but she has to find something very important to her grandmother. I loved the twist of the answer to her grandmother’s question. It was really sweet.
My only issue what that the story was a little bit slow in the beginning. It seemed to take me a while to get into the story. By the half way mark I was really invested and wanted to know what was going on. I think that it may have been a little too much set up/description for parts and so it dragged a little bit.
