 photo 764919848_zps0c0a7a40.jpgIn A Ripple In Time Rhyllann and Wren head back in time to a world where World War I never ended. Women do not have equal rights, and war still rages. It is indeed undesirable and frightening. 

Now let’s take a look at what the Amazon blurb is for A Ripple In Time: World War One rages, Britain has an empire and these days, the military is in charge. Welcome to the 21st Century.

Blame Celtic Cousin Wren. He made an uncanny connection with Carina, a young woman emigrating to America one hundred years ago, and so averted the Titanic tragedy. This single ripple in time has sparked a fire domino effect – an inferno that now threatens to incarcerate Europe.

Determined to restore our world’s timeline, Wren tracks down Carrie, Carina’s great-granddaughter, and they join forces for this seemingly impossible task.

But then Wren makes a fatal mistake: he falls in love with Carrie. If the Titanic suffers her original fate, Carrie will cease to exist.

Turning back time is tricky. Sacrificing the woman you love – even to save the world – impossible. 



“A Ripple in Time” is a time travel romantic adventure. Protagonist Wren Prenderson was nominated for “Best Hero” in the E-Festival of Words 2013 Awards Hall, and voted by readers into joint second place. It is available from all virtual bookstores, including: Nook Books, Amazon, WH Smith and Smashwords.

I am adding my review of Julia Hughes’s YA book A Ripple In Time that I wrote after purchasing the book.

What I liked best: As always, the Celtic Cousins! I love Rhyllann and Wren. These two are great. It was especially interesting to see them in the dystopian setting: a world where World War I never ended. I also really, really enjoyed the addition of Carrie to the cast. 

What missed a bit: The only miss for me was that I felt like Wren was a bit absent from the story for periods of time. I understand this is due to the story line and events, but I so enjoy him that it missed just a bit for me.

Overall: Very good! I love the Celtic Cousins and was very pleased with this book. I love the setting and Ms. Hughes does a wonderful job of making us feel like we are there. The Titanic aspect was particularly fun too. Everyone loves things involving the Titanic. If you haven’t yet met the Celtic Cousins, I suggest you do. Be sure to pick up A Raucous Time as well.
