When a young woman vanishes without a trace from a quaint fishing village on the coast of England, only one person knows the truth, but he remains silent allowing the authorities to search for her in vain.
Meanwhile, Valerie Crane finds herself transported to the year 1605. Terrified and confused, she turns for help to the Whitfield brothers, who take her in and offer her a home. Both Alexander and Finlay Whitfield fall in love with the mysterious woman, who shows up on their doorstep, creating a love triangle that threatens to consume them all. Valerie must make her choice, deciding between the brother who will lead her down the path of destruction, or one who will give her a love she couldn’t find in her own time.
About the Author, Irina Shapiro:
I was born in Moscow, Russia during the height of Communism and "enjoyed" the life of an average Russian child until my family's immigration to the United States in 1982. We settled in Brooklyn, NY where I finished school and then graduated from Bernard M. Baruch College in New York City with a degree in International Business. Despite my business degree, history and travel have always been my passions and I have tried to incorporate my knowledge and experiences into my stories.
I currently live in New Jersey with my husband and two children.

Purchase "The Hands of Time" on:
Irina pens "The Hands of Time", a romance mystery with a very interesting story line filled with emotions. I loved how strong and believable the characters were which made this book is a real page turner for me. Some of the historical facts were incorrect, but what does it matter....especially if you can accept time traveling. There is a cliffhanger at the end and now I can't wait to see what happens next. Highly recommended for all romance, mystery lovers.
I give "The Hands of Time" a 5 star rating.
