Now let's check out In Time for You by Chris Karlsen...
GENRE: Historical Romance
While horseback riding in the English countryside, sisters, Electra and Emily Crippen find themselves trapped in a tear in time. Thrown back to 1357
and caught by a local noble, they
are in a place that is home but as frightening and unfamiliar as an alien world
would be. With no idea how the tear in time came about, the one thing they do
know is: they must stay together and stay near to where the event took place in
hopes of discovering the way back to their modern life. That certain need to
stay together is the first certainty taken from them when one sister is forced
to remain in England and one is sent miles away to England by royal order. Wales
There is one other hope for help the sisters don’t know exists. It’s Electra’s lover, Roger Marchand. A time traveler himself, he never told her of his past. When he realizes what has happened to the sisters, he enlists the help of a scientist friend to help him open the suspected passageway through time. Any effort to save Electra and Emily will likely cost him his life. This was the time Roger came from, a time when his country,
, was at war with France . If he is discovered on English
soil while searching for the sisters, he will either be killed or taken
prisoner of war. Any risk is worth saving the life of the woman he loves. England
They walked at a fast pace for fifteen minutes. They came to where a service road built during World War II intersected with the
Road. Instead mature oaks and alder
dotted what should've been the single-lane service road. Gone too was the old
sign indicating the direction of the wartime airfield abandoned in 1946.
"I'm afraid, El. Nothing is what or where it should be. Things are the same but different."
"I'm afraid too. I don't understand any of this. Like you said, it's all the same in the main, but the details are all wrong. It's as though we're part of an artist's rendition of this place, but he erased Roger and the horses, and the picnic part. Instead he drew in foliage and kept us."
Emily tried her cell phone again with no luck. "Maybe we should wait here. I'm certain Roger will come for us. He's probably already headed this way. Don't you think?"
Electra didn't want to tell her what she feared. She had no idea what was happening to them or what they needed to do, but in her heart, she feared if he was coming, he'd be there by now.
"No, I don't think he's on the way," Electra said, truthfully. Emily would figure it out soon enough. "I don't see how staying in one place is better than keeping on toward the house."
"And if your imaginary artist erased the house?"
"Then we'll work out our next move."
They continued on to where Esme and Stephen's house stood or should've stood. Their cottage dated back to Tudor times as did the stable and other outbuildings. They'd survived hellacious storms, German bombs, and natural decay for 500 years.
The sisters froze at the sight. None of the buildings were there, only short stone fences sectioning off various sheep pastures that occupied the land.
