This is the story of the impossible love between Richard and Elise. Richard lives in 1971, Elise in 1896, but they manage to get together nonetheless and know, though for a very brief time, the true love of their lives.
Such a tender and brave tale, it was really worth reading!
I read this under the original title "Bid Time Return", before the movie was released. I've re-read it several times since (and will read it again). I wish I could give it more stars. This is probably my all-time favorite book ever, and I read a LOT.
The book is a million times better than the movie, and I really like the movie. The book was written in such a believable style that honestly, I was looking for some proof after I finished it that it was, in fact, fiction. I was completely captivated by the story.
As many of you are probably familiar with the movie, I'll just say that the book does differ a bit, most notably in the location. It takes place in California, at the Hotel Del Coronado - a real hotel that's just as incredible as the Grand Hotel they used for the movie.
I can't recommend this one enough - love love love it!...Continua
