Description:

When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor's family, she is forced to move from Los Angeles to New York City to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she has never met. In their historic Fifth Avenue mansion, filled with a century's worth of family secrets, Michele discovers the biggest family secret of all - an ancestor's diary that, amazingly, has the power to send her back in time to 1910, the year it was written. There, at a glamorous high-society masquerade ball, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life. And she finds herself falling for him, and into an otherworldly romance.

Soon Michele is leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves - and to complete a quest that will determine their fate. 

My Thoughts: 

In this book Michele Windsor's life gets turned upside down when her mother dies and she goes to live with her estranged wealthy grandparents in New York.  Michele has lots of issues like where they have been all her life!  Why the family has been ripped apart for so long add to the fact since Michele was young girl she has dreamed of a boy not knowing his name or who he is.

When she discovers a key she travels in time meeting various long lost relatives and the boy in her dreams Philip Walker.  As she bounces back between various time frames she alters events in history and in some cases has to go back and fix them for the better. 

This book was incredible I can't wait to get my hands on the next one I couldn't put it down at all.  It was a well written book that flowed so beautifully and brought back certain time frames and locations that were great to read about!
