While on a genealogical research journey through the Midwest, Molly Hamilton impulsively buys a 100-year-old Victorian house in the middle of a cornfield, and falls in love with the house’s owner...the original owner, that is. Can he be a ghost? The handsome, intriguing attorney certainly feels solid—and somehow her soul knows she has always loved him.

Darius Ferguson has no idea how he has come to present-day Iowa. The last thing he knew, the year was 1880, and he had just buried his fiancée, who happens to look exactly like Molly. He cannot separate the two women in his heart—to him, they are one.

In spite of being drawn to him, Molly thinks Darius is unhinged. Darius wonders if he has joined his fiancée in purgatory. If time travel is possible, will love be enough to build a future together?

Across the Winds of Time is one of those stunning time travel stories that makes the reader believe in magic.  The laws of reality have been challenged, as Molly and Darius find their paths to love.
Intriguing and fast paced, I enjoyed this book greatly.  I didn't want to do anything else.  My mind came racing back to this book, needing to know what would happen next.  Bess McBride created such lively characters and a plot that is full of twists and turns.  The book is in first person, featuring the heroine, Molly.  With a cast of characters that are unforgettable, this book stole my heart, left me with a smile on my face.
If you're a fan of time travel romances, then I'd suggest getting a copy of Across the Winds of Time.  I want to know what else Ms. McBride has to offer.  I'm a new fan!
