Once Upon a Remembrance

Once Upon a Remembrance (Women of Strength #1)
Written by Grace Brannigan

Grade: A



            Once Upon a Remembrance: Book 1 Women of Strength time travel trilogy: Photographer Isabeau Remington travels to 1894 Virginia and falls in love with a man she must ultimately leave behind when she returns to her own time...but things are not always as they seem.

            Modern day photographer Isabeau is pulled from the present time and thrust back into the year 1894 in Virginia. She must help save Hawk Morgan, a man threatened by a killer, a man endangered by his own erased memories. Hawk must survive in 1894 so his present day ancestor Pierce Morgan, will be alive in Isabeau's future.
             Isabeau begins to fall in love with Hawk Morgan but with both their future's uncertain and a killer on the loose, neither one of them may have a tomorrow to look forward to.

            When Isabeau Remington plans to photograph Hawk’s Den with friend and boss, Leif Ericcson (I know- like the Norse explorer), she’s looking through the home owner's, Pierce Morgan, family photo book when she suddenly passes out. When she wakes, Isabeau finds herself on a strange, busy ship with men clothed from the past, but she tries to make herself believe this is all a joke or reenactment. But when she finally meets the Captain of the ship, Hawk Morgan, it's hard to make out what's real anymore.
             Isabeau remembers Hawk from the photo album and now knows that she was sent back into the past of Virginia, and with a killer on the loose, she knows that Hawk is soon to die, but can she save him with her premonitions?
            As Isabeau finds herself falling in love with Hawk, she frets over when she will return back to her time period, and what will happen to him. She knows she must save him to make sure Pierce will be alive in the Modern world, but can she protect him? Find out in this wonderful time-travel, by Grace Brannigan!

            I loved, loved, loved this book! Never one to fall head-over-heels in love with a time travel, there's a first for everyone, I suppose! This book had a little bit of something for everyone, and I enjoyed every piece of it. Hawk Morgan is wonderfully a strong, handsome and endearing lead, and to match him is the brave, smart, and tender-hearted Isabeau Remington that is able to form this brilliant love match. I loved connecting to these characters and was honored to review and book tour for such a great book and author! I look forward to reading Grace Brannigan's other books and I'm positive you will, too!
