I didn’t much like Gaffney, of course well, the reader isn’t supposed beyonx like that one. I also liked the use of many Lakota words and phrases scattered throughout the narrative. They both somehow made the journey to tine, where they fell in love. Instead of the history and culture in A Love Beyond Time being reduced to a dry textbook lesson, it seemed to become a living, breathing part of the narrative, as important as any character.

Amber rated it it was amazing Nov 29, Krystle rated it it was amazing Jun 15, Elizabeth Raines rated it it was amazing Jun 04, Dillon is prejudiced against and distrustful of whites in general.

A Love Beyond Time

It was steeped in history and character-driven. The magic teepee haha takes her back to modern times. I read it in one sitting aifken wanted to bite the head off of anyone who dared try to interrupt me. I mean, who wouldn’t prefer a manly warrior or a cultured ‘Don Juan’ to these brainless twits in their ‘YOLO’ shirts, and pants aitke half-off their hips, and wearing so much ‘bling’ it’s almost blinding?

A forbidden pleasure you’ll want to savor slowly, but quickly, and without pause.


Yes, Charley was a real favourite with me. Dillon WolfRyan Burke. Maybe because new authors are not so jaded as to rush through their stories in order to meet a deadline. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty.

And how skilfully did the author weave him into the story as to appear insignificant at first, only to end up being the architect juddie the whole plot. Carol rated it liked it Jan 04, What a change from the cliched types who hate each other on sight and then work their way around their prejudices in order to provide fodder for conflict.

She starts working in Montana at the site of the Battle of Little Big Horn to help preserve artifacts for the Native American tribes and judi that her boss may be stealing artifacts from the site to sell to private collectors. Ryan was a strong woman who had made a place for herself in a “man’s world”, but didn’t seem overly bothered by the idea of being placed into a more submissive role in the past.

Wolf takes Ryan as his wife, while she learns how to be a proper Lakota wife.

It reads like poetry. Wolf was also very kind, gentle and protective of Ryan, and a strong leader among his people, all things that I liked about him. Makes me believe that there’s something about debut authors that transcends the talent of established authors. On the other hand, I am not a huge fan of only a person’s spirit making the slide through time and switching bodies with a person on the other side as Dillon did. Ryan realizes that she has found the man of her dreams in the past and would gladly live out her days with him there in contented bliss, but those who wish ill against them are poised to steal away their newfound happiness.


Aitken seems to have a talent beyondd writing from the heart with a certain thoughtfulness and passion for telling Native American stories, and this was one of the facets of the book that I enjoyed most. I remember that it was fairly lengthy and detailed, but an excellent time travel plot. Both a mystery and a romance I enjoyed the writing style as well as the well crafted story. But, luckly, I did not.

Perfect in all ways! I found the archaeological dig setting of the present and the Little Big Horn lvoe of the past, as well as Ryan’s career as an anthropologist to be unique and interesting elements. One day, he casually mentions to Ryan that it would be nice to travel back in time to set a trap for the thief.

I was immersed in the Native American culture, I lived their lives, I saw their language, could almost hear their voices, feel their pain and happiness. No silly misunderstandings to build a convoluted plot that frustrates a reader and goes nowhere until it is cleared up.

Overall, I give this book a very solid four stars for the love story and authentic feel to the story.
