Dr. Rita Woods thought she was going back in time to save the children. She didn’t count on falling in love.
Rita Woods—retired physician, widow, with a granddaughter about to be married—misses her patients. She’s tired of knitting. She wants to do something that makes a difference again. When Max Ballard and his time-traveling conservatory pop in to her life, the voice of Dr. Josiah Jones’ diary calls. The voice who’d inspired her vocation. The last line of the diary haunts her quiet moments:
“…the children succumbed in the night…”
In 1769 Dr. Josiah Jones has a good life. His practice is thriving and, except for the the guilt he carries over the death of his wife, life couldn’t be any better. His biggest worry is the zealous match-making activities of his best friend…that is until a hurricane throws an unexpected guest on his doorstep.
Can Josiah trust a woman from the twenty-first century to save the only grandchildren he’ll ever have?
Is it possible for two people living 250 years apart to have a second chance at love?

Guest Review from Donna
What I think you should know
Rita by Izzy James in a Yorktown Time travel novella. Set in 1769 it is the third book in the series. While this could be read as a standalone I highly recommend that you read the prior books in the series prior to starting this one. This story features Doctor Rita Woods who is Olivia from the first book’s Grandmother.
What I think about this book :
I read the first two books in the series and was excited to have the opportunity to read the third. Dr. Woods had been given a journal as a young girl, the Journal was from Doctor Josiah Jones who lived and practiced medicine in 1769. This journal influenced her whole life so when she saw an opportunity to help she jumped at it. It was very interesting to see the past from the perspective of Dr. Woods who has more modern knowledge. I really enjoyed this unique perspective. I loved some of the names and language (Sparking). This was a very sweet story that made me more thankful than ever for modern medicine.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Izzy
After I finished Garrett, who worked really hard to hide his contemporary origins when he slipped back to 1769, I thought it would be fun to have someone actually take some technology back to 1769. I also felt bad for Olivia’s grandmother who makes her first appearance in Max. She is a retired physician knitting away and helping out Olivia and Garrett as she can. I thought it was time she had an adventure of her own. And since I love historic areas, and Yorktown has become one of my favorite places, I knew I had to go back at least one more time.
