I kind of liked this version of time travel. Rather than being two people from entirely different periods in history, it’s two that are born just far enough apart to make their relationship impossible. And it features the damage that time travel could do to a person. The ways in which being thrust from your time and place, everyone you know and love can destroy some of the hope and happiness in a person.
I really loved the little adventure that this story took you on. It’s a cute, easy read that takes you from modern times to a more ancient way of life. The fact that it’s a teacher who travels back in time with her students just makes it a little more fun. Especially since the inclusion of young children stopped this from being a clear cut and opaque story line.
