    1. Started reading the book. It took me three days to get pass the first 15 pages. It was a slow start for me. There were too many characters for me to keep track of at once, when Lyn was with her friends. I’m still not sure I know who everyone is, but I skimmed over them because I assumed they’re not going to be important. So I hope that’s the case.The first chapter is one big HUGE info dump. The interesting thing was I could almost go along with it. The way it was presented, in the context, [...]

    2. This has been a favourite of mine for many years - I return to it every few years and read it again.I deeply enjoy the nitty gritty of the history - it's got a very down-to-earth feel. The author has captured a very convincing picture of daily life across the strata of inhabitants.It's the ending that tantalises me, though, because it's so unique. This is the year that I pass it on to my daughters - I hope they're as drawn to it as I am.

    3. Another Shore • by Nancy Bond (1988)Historical Fiction of the French port town of Louisbourg (Nova Scotia), an important French town and fortress. In 1745 the British attacked. Over 200 years later part of this historic town & fortress was rebuild as a tourist attraction. The Louisbourg, Living History Museum is a replica that closely resembles all aspects of the original town, including the staff, all of whom are outfitted in the fashion of the day; townsfolk, shopkeepers, French soldiers [...]

    4. Well-written and interesting. There were far too many characters for me to keep track of, and on the whole it was too romantical for the likes of me. I found the historical aspects very interesting. I liked the indomitable old woman, and loathed the whiny Donald. I hated the ending with a fierce and fiery passion.

    5. I found this book as a tween in the library and every few years I would have to re-read it and every time we moved I would look for it in the new library. I really enjoyed the idea of time traveling back into history and i really enjoy romance too. I have been lucky in that I was finally able to buy a copy from a library, as this book is not printed anymore. But i really enjoy this book.

    6. This audio book is an excellent time travel story for families with children aged 10-18 years. This story will not only shorten a long car trip, but will inadvertantly teach a Canadian history lesson and more.

    7. Too many unlikeable characters and unanswered questions. The ending was unsatisfying. It started out really interesting, but then it got bogged down. I kept reading until the end because I remained curious about the outcome, but the ending was a disappointment.

    8. Interesting story. I liked how Lyn learned to care and love the people in her 1744 family. She found injustice and unfairness but learned to work through it. I didn't quit understand how Lyn got to 1744, but as the story went on I was able to put things together and come up with my own theory.

    9. Wow! I really loved this book! I couldn't put it down, and I really got into it and felt the feelings that the characters were feeling. The ending was just so-so, though. I would have used a different ending, but then, I didn't write this book. :)

    10. I really like time travel books! This one was very interesting, and disturbing. It made me want to study history and pay attention. I highly recommend this book!

    11. Grades 6+. Working in a reconstructed colonial settlement in Nova Scotia, 17-year-old Lyn finds herself transported back to 1744.

    12. Haven't read this in awhile, but I remember thinking that it was one of the best time-travel books I had read.
