Wings of the Storm
Dr. Jane Florian is a research historian working on the Time Search Project. The genius 20-year-old, David Wolf, decides the machine needs testing with a human subject. While drunk, he pushes Jane into the machine to send her to a nunnery in Southern France in 1168. Everything disappears, whirls, and reappears. The glass and tile booth is now stone.
Fortunately, Jane has studied Medieval England intensely. She has not landed in France, but in England a hundred years later or so. She knows the current language from her studies and is able to pass herself as a widow who had lived in the Holy Lands until her husband died. She is able to contact a local lord. The neighborhood is beset with a band of outlaws and she isn't safe. Sir Stephan takes her on as the chatelaine of his castle. The castle certainly needs a head housekeeper!
Jane is now Lady Jehane. She meets the local landless lord who is chasing the outlaws, Sir Daffyd ap Bleddyn. She gets the dogs into a kennel outside. She has the castle cleaned and new floor covering brought in. Sir Stephan's bride is arriving. Jane wants everything ready. But when Sibelle arrives, Stephan takes off. Now Jane is running the castle, training Sibelle, and dealing with Sir Daffyd. How hard can this be?
This is a charming time travel romance. It's obvious where the story line in Wings of the Storm is going from the time you read the back cover of the paperback. Sizemore, though, makes Medieval England very believable. She takes into account the fact that English was not yet a formed language at the time. Jane has had enough learning and studying to fake her way into the life, but still has a lot to learn how to adjust from living in the 21st century to the 13th century. Wings of the Storm is a satisfying escapists read for the romantic at heart.
