Sarah Beauchamp has made a life for herself in the past having given up on returning to the present. She only has one question – What had happened?
Captain Matthew Barrington is determined to find the longest missing agent – Sarah. She was lost when the Time Displacement Unit exploded.
The Time Displacement Corps greatest fear is causing a Paradox. But when an agent has been missing for ten years, can they avoid it?
Poor Sarah, trapped in pre-Civil War Alabama through a time travel experiment gone wrong, forced to live her life in a strange time period without friends or family. As we see in Time Displacement Corps: Sarah’s Story, what Sarah does is make the best of her situation and make a new life for herself. Alabama in the late 1850’s is not the most comfortable time period for a 21st century feminist and Sarah has to work hard to keep from shocking the natives, but she does manage to live a low-key existence for the most part. Her friends consist of the slaves she has freed, and for the past ten years she has spent her time working on her small plantation. Luckily, before she has a chance to shock her neighbors and the local townsfolk, Sarah has a surprise of her own in the form of a visitor from the future, her 21st century future. A gentleman named Matthew Barrington arrives to change her life, hopefully for the better.
I truly enjoyed Delilah K. Stephans’ Time Displacement Corps: Sarah’s Story. The book opens with a descriptive introduction to her strong heroine, and it is this intro that sets the stage for the rest of the story. While it is a paranormal romance, it is also an adventure, with all of the accompanying excitement that goes with that genre. Ms. Stephens has a delicate touch, adding just the correct balance of literary elements to the story to make it credible and entertaining at the same time. She makes the reader believe in the possibility of the TDC, and the ability to jump through time - of course why not? It is up to Sarah and Matthew to convince us of other possibilities, and the romance between the two certainly succeeds in that endeavor as well. Ms. Stephans splices her book with references to favorite romance authors, reminiscing on what a favored hero or heroine should be. Matthew and Sarah are very interesting, unpredictable individuals. I liked the fact that they did not behave as one would have expected. The entire book is spectacular: wonderfully well-written, with a surprise ending that put a close to a very satisfying story. I definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in spending a few hours in the past, the future, and the present, it will be time well spent.
