Dear Maude is a fascinating adventure that resonates in most women’s fantasies—finding tall, dark and handsome, with a trip back to the time of Downton Abby. Twists and turns around every corner, make it an addictive read. I found myself getting in my car more often to listen to this Audible book. The reader was great. I wasn’t sure what I thought for the first ten minutes or so. I think it took a few minutes for the reader to find her groove, but the story was amazing, and the reader was fabulous once I got into the story.
The author does a great job of describing the emotions of a young college student and the reasons that make her commit to this specific journey. I loved the warmth of Emily and the love she had for her family and respect of others. Her quirky thoughts, yet steadfast actions, propel the story along with great interest. I liked that the beginning was laid out over many chapters, showing the life of Emily and her relationship to Sophia. It threw me for a loop wondering how the time travel would possibly fit in. Then when the TIME came, I was thrilled to embark upon the adventure.
I keep a Kindle book and an Audible going at all times. I picked this book out of a long list of Indie author books for my support of #IndieApril. I love time travel, great characters and a story that keeps you guessing. I look forward to reading more from Denise Liebig.
