My Review 

Thunder on the Moor

πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š ⭐


The past is… Let’s just roll with the idea that Hartley was right. Maggie Armstrong is about to go on a trip of a lifetime, a trip that cannot be found among the pages of a holiday broacher. Oh, no. Maggie is going back in time.

The prodigal son has returned, but he is not alone for Robert brings with him his nineteen-year-old daughter, Maggie. Maggie at last has the family she had always longed for, but although her father rejoices in being back where he belongs, Maggie is left a little bemused. The seemingly far-fetched stories her father had told her were actually true and now she was a part of, living in, that narrative.

I love the whole concept of this novel and the author has skillfully portrayed not only the confusion, the bafflement, and at times the horror of living in this volatile period of history, she has also depicted the majestic scenery and has paid close attention to the history of this era. The attention to every little historical detail meant that, like Maggie, I fell through time.

Maggie’s journey throughout this novel makes her the kind of protagonist that a reader can really get behind. She is, as one would expect, not accustomed to the ways or the traditions of this era, nor does she like having her life dictated, especially when it comes to who she will wed. I have to be really careful as I am always a little nervous that when I love a book as much as this one, that I am going to give away spoilers and the very last thing I want to do ruin the enjoyment of this novel for another reader. So let me finish my review by saying that this is one of the best time-travel novels that I have ever read. It really is a book in a million!


You can find this novel over on Amazon UK, Amazon US, Amazon CA and Amazon AU. You can also pick up your copy of this book over on Barnes and Noble.


Andrea Matthews is the pseudonym for Inez Foster, a historian and librarian who loves to read and write and search around for her roots, genealogical speaking. In fact, it was while doing some genealogical research that she stumbled across the history of the Border reivers. The idea for her first novel came to mind almost at once, gradually growing into the Thunder on the Moor series. And the rest, as they say, is history…
