Sixteen-year-old Hope finds herself in the midst of a family that travels in time intentionally (unlike the time travelers in Diana Gabaldon's popular Outlander series). Narrator Amanda Ronconi sounds authentic as Hope expresses her grief at her mother's presumed death and tells how she made her way to Scotland and then to twelfth-century London. Ronconi's charged energy moves the plot along as she delivers Hope's characteristic quips with an undertone that combines insecurity and confidence in her photographic memory. Ronconi's use of accents is effective in distinguishing Hope's family members, with their Scots brogues; her heart's companion, with his flatter English inflection; and Hope herself, with her American speech and enthusiasm.
