Risking her life, Gwen elects to play a pivotal role in the planned rescue. In the midst of the chaos, she is drawn to the queen’s champion, Lord Alberto Uzzo, who battles not only their military foes, but also his personal demons. Tested to the limit when he discovers Gwen’s true identity as a time traveler, Alberto nevertheless fights through his doubt and the whirl of superstition that surrounds this intriguing and strong-willed woman. Time is of the essence as the lovers seek to overcome the evil forces rallying against the queen they’ve vowed to save. Will Gwen and Alberto be able to overcome the groundswell of danger to find time enough for love?
Time Enough for Love is set in 10th Century Italy. It is the second book in the Italian Time Travel series by Morgan O’Neill, and though I managed to read it, as stand-alone, I recommend reading book one to get a complete understanding of this amazing storyline, and the intriguing characters.
The authors’ research and understanding of the time period was very thorough, and was evident throughout the entire read. I walked away learning a bit about the era, and that in my opinion, is one of the reason I enjoy a well-thought out historical. Adding the time travel gave it a wonderful twist that kept me wanting more.
Alberto and Gwen’s relationship was one of the most touching and heartfelt romances, that I’ve read in a long time. The conflicts they endured in the story had me holding my breath one minute, and crying the next.
I do not want to give away any spoilers, but there were many relationships in this book that needed closure, and the author did a wonderful job in tackling all of them. If you love the in-depth read of a historical, and the excitement of a time travel then Enough Time for Love by Morgan O’Neill is a must read!
