Publisher Comments:

When Addy is swept back in time, she couldn't be happier to leave her miserable life behind. Now she's mistaken for Lady Matilda, the pampered ward of the king. If Addy can play her part, she'll have glorious gowns, jewels, and something she's always longed for — the respect and admiration of others. But then she meets Will, the falconer's son with sky blue eyes, who unsettles all her plans.

From shipwrecks to castle dungeons, from betrothals to hidden conspiracies, Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret. When she discovers the truth, Addy must take matters into her own hands. The stakes? Her chance at true love... and the life she's meant to live.

Review:

"In this enjoyable historical coming-of-age story, Addy is chafing in her life as the poor daughter of a single mother in a small English town in 1913. When another girl calls Addy's mother a slut, 15-year-old Addy gets into a fight that results in her mother pulling her out of school and forcing her into service tending to an elderly eccentric. But Addy soon discovers that her new employer has invented a time machine, and when her mother threatens her with full-time service, she hops into the machine and begins a new life as Lady Mathilda in medieval England. There she meets handsome Will, is catered to by a legion of servants, learns how to work with falcons, and grows up enough to know when it's time to go home. The fantasy premise of escaping into a new identity ('If I could, I'd shed the girl I am like a snake slides out of a ragged, outgrown skin,' Addy thinks) should strongly appeal to teens, who will relate to Addy's frustration with the limits of her life. Ages 12 — up. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

A sweeping tale of love, time travel, and the wisdom of following one's heart. When a 15-year-old girl is trapped in the past, will she find her way home, or will she finally find what she's always been searching for?

Historical setting, romance and fantasy, a stunning cover... what could be better? I can't wait for Wildwing to come out, it sounds like a perfect combination of my favourite genres!
