Where Eagles Fly

By

Shelby McCoy has reached the age of 40 without finding that special someone but finds life full anyway with her music, teaching, and grumpy Pomeranian, Jorge. Still, she hasn’t given up hope that there’s a man out there for her somewhere, though it’s safe to say she didn’t expect to find him over 100 years in the past. But that’s exactly what happens when her SUV breaks down on the way to her sister’s dude ranch in Wyoming; one minute she’s in 2009 and the next she finds herself meeting Ruckert St. Cloud and his family, original owners of the ranch, in 1886.

Lisa Norato’s time traveling novel is a light, fun tale of finding your soul mate, regardless of time, space, and age. Taking modern-day Shelby and making her vulnerable as she finds herself alone in an old-fashioned world, Norato opens her heroine up to the possibility of love with a much younger man with issues of his own. Shelby’s initial resistance to the shy, stuttering Ruckert gives way to real, intense feelings as she learns to cope with her new surroundings, and the ultimate resolution to this ill-fated love story is both charming and satisfying. Filled with action, emotion, and unique twists of fate, Where Eagles Fly is a perfect distraction for a cold winter day.
