This is for the long flight home tomorrow!
We are done with our two fun days of workshops, and tomorrow after breakfast we will be leaving Delta Junction, AK and starting our long trek back to Anchorage. We are planning on it taking 8 to 9 hours with all the stopping and scenery looking…putting us in Anchorage in time for a nice leisurely dinner!
The rental car needs to be turned back in around 10pm…our red-eye flight leaves Anchorage at 12:30am. We get back to North Carolina after 6pm at night on Monday! Blehhhhhhh!!
So..I just was doing a bit of browsing for something to keep me occupied on the flights, and I found THIS one!
A Knight in Central Park by Theresa Ragan is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars based on 24 customer reviews.
The year is 1499. As Alexandra Dunn’s farmhouse is set ablaze, her grandfather places precious stones in her palm, telling her she has until the next full moon to return with a hero...a brave, chivalrous knight to help save her family. Familiar objects become a blur as she is swallowed in darkness. Suddenly Alexandra is standing in the middle of Central Park, but she has no time to ponder on the wondrous powers of the stones or the amazing sights before her...she must find a hero before all is lost.
Joe McFarland would be the first to admit that he’s far from hero material…definitely not the man she’s looking for. A firm believer of quietude and non-violence, he avoids conflict at all costs. At thirty-four, he is one of the younger Professors at NYU where he lectures and teaches History: The High Middle Ages. Joe’s main goal in life is to gain membership into the Medieval Academy, a highly distinguished group of archaeologists and historians. He believes membership will bring him respect and recognition…but what he really wants is to be reunited with his father; a man who has spent his entire life searching for the Black Knight, the last of the medieval knights.
Joe’s organized, well-structured life begins to unravel the moment he meets Alexandra Dunn. He figures she majored in medieval history before going off the deep end…until days later when he is miraculously transported through time, to 1499 England. Dressed in Dockers and a button down shirt, Joe thought he was ready for anything...anything but this! An armored man with a very authentic looking broadsword is about to strike him down. With only nail clippers and a Bic to defend himself, Joe has no time to think about such an implausible phenomenon as traveling through time…not if he wants to live to see another day.
After the Diana Gabaldon “Outlander Series”, I kind of got hooked on some of the time travel genre, but it’s gotta be a GOOD ONE…..I’ll be willing to give this one a try! I’m still waiting for the next Outlander release to come around some time next year I think…..but we will try this one!
