Summary: (from goodreads) When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life – a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.

Michele is soon 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 – a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book from the beginning to the very end. I could not put this book down. I fell in love with the characters and the theme of the story. When I was reading this book I felt like I was in the story along with the characters. I can't explain it. If you want to read a really good book where you feel satisfied when the book is over with then this is the book.

The main character Michelle Windsor is just a typical high school student that had a single mother and never knew who her father was. Just heard stories about him and knew that on her mothers side she had a very wealthy family that she has never met. Well one day changes her life forever. Her mother drops her off to school and that is the last time Michelle sees her mother because her mother ends up being killed in a car accident. Well Michelle doesn't have any family until she finds out that her mothers parents want her to move to New York City to live with them. First thing is she never has met them and second she always thought they never wanted to meet her. So when she arrives she is use to living in a house where her mom had to work so hard to make money and now she is living in a huge mansion and never has to worry about money. Before she left she ended up meeting with a lawyer and was given some jewelry that was her mothers. In the safety deposit box she discovers a key and wonders what it is. Well in her room she discovers a diary that was written by one of her relatives and when she goes to open it up she notices the key is shaking and moving so she goes to the key and when she touches it along with the diary she ends up going back in time. When she goes back in time in 1910 she ends up going to a ball and at that ball she notices a very handsome man that looks so familiar. Then she thinks about it and that man was the man that she has been dreaming about her entire life. At the ball he notices her and she looks familiar to him. Well every time she wears this key she can go back in time and be with Philip. Every time she goes back and hangs out with him the more she falls in love with him. So Michelle is trying to stay in the 20th century but sometimes she ends up in the 1910s. But her biggest wish is to be with Philip forever. 

There are a lot of things that happen in this book. Its a roller coaster book that keeps you on your toes and keeps you rooting for the main characters to be together. I was cheering them on until the end. Read this book because it was written beautifully by a wonderful author. The one question you need to ask yourself while reading this book. Would you love to go back and time and change things the way you want them to be to have a different future for yourself.
