KIRKUS REVIEW

Following her bohemian mother Marion’s sudden, accidental death, Michele Windsor is shipped off to live with her estranged, Old Money grandparents. Marion could never forgive the elder Windsors for bribing Michele’s father to abandon them when she was in utero, so naturally, Michele is devastated to leave groovy Venice Beach for the uptight Windsor family mansion in Manhattan. Everything changes when Michele discovers that the unusual skeleton-key necklace she’s seen countless times in her dreams is real and that it sends her back in time whenever she touches a historic document. Whoosh! Michele is off to 1910, where she meets the boy who haunts her dreams, Philip Walker, scion of the Windsors’ neighbors and business rivals, and—oops!—her great-great-aunt Violet’s fiancé. Traveling through time chasing after her would-be ancestor and befriending her sassy female forebears from the 1910s, ’20s and ’40s, Michele learns about love and strength and begins to unravel the mystery of her father’s true identity (hint: He’s not a cad, after all). At least one sequel will follow. Overwritten, overwrought and undercooked. (Supernatural romance. YA)
