The doll suddenly starts to talk and tells the girl about her life with a poor London family, her departure for India where she lives with a rich, but unhappy Indian family, and her ultimate return to England.

"Jennifer Victoria Church knows how to tug at one's heart strings. One of the best novels I ever read!" Candice Strauss, Book Recommendations.
I am reprinting here, in response to requests, certain recent experiences in Great Britain and France. These were selected in the hope of conveying to American readers some idea of the atmosphere, of "what it is like" in these countries under the immediate shadow of the battle clouds. It was what I myself most wished to know. My idea was first to send home my impressions while they were fresh, and to refrain as far as possible from comment and judgment until I should have had time to make a fuller survey. Hence I chose as a title for these articles, -intended to be preliminary, "A Traveller in War-Time." I tried to banish from my mind all previous impressions gained from reading. I wished to be free for the moment to accept and record the chance invitation or adventure, wherever met with, at the Front, in the streets of Paris, in Ireland, or on the London omnibus. Later on, I hoped to write a book summarizing the changing social conditions as I had found them.
Sorcha's world had changed in an instant. Her jealous rival had used the power of Samhain and a full moon to rend the fabric of time and exile Sorcha to a place of heartache and despair. Sorcha knew she had to do whatever it took to return to where she belonged. But when she hears his voice, she realizes that there is something that must be done here first. A Time Apart is the second novella in the regency time travel romance trilogy. It is 60 pages / 13,000 words. The third novella in the series is A Circle in Time. The first two novellas end in cliffhangers, while the third provides a happy ending. The series then will continue in another trilogy - those will be coming out over the coming weeks. These stories are teen-friendly with no explicit language, violence, or intimacy. All proceeds benefit battered women's shelters. Note that for those who prefer reading books in all-in-one form, each trio of novellas will also be compiled as a completed box set once all three are done. It just means you have to be patient and wait for me to finish writing all of them: ). For those who prefer to read along as I write, and offer suggestions for me to shape the plot, these novellas are here for your enjoyment! Either way, I'd love to hear your feedback on the storyline and characters.
