What begins as a post-graduate research job in academia becomes anything but ordinary when Madeleine “Max” Maxwell discovers that the historians at St. Mary’s Institute of Historical Research at England’s Thirsk University can travel through time. A history-lover’s dream becomes reality as Max and her colleagues jaunt through the ages, observing and recording historical events. But other historians are not so altruistic and wish to use time travel for financial gain and destroy St. Mary’s, leaving it to Max and her friends to thwart the perilous plot. British wit, an abundance of humor, madcap adventure, and a bit of romance make for a rollicking read. I, for one, can’t wait to pick up the next installment of The Chronicles of St. Mary’s.
