About the Book:
Don't stay a moment longer than you have to. Don't say too much. Don't pollute the timeline.

When nineteen-year-old college library page Keigan Wainwright is sent to pick up a private donation of books for the school's collection, he has no idea where one of those books will take him, or what it will take from him.

Retracing a powerful man's footsteps through the past, Keigan finds himself caught in the same dangerous trap: falling in love with a woman he was never meant to know, and uncertain he will ever find his way home.

Wishing Cross Station
: A bittersweet fantasy romance from the author of GODSPEED and OF STARDUST.


Our Review:

Extraordinary. Endearing. So beautifully written. I smiled. I cried. I was never not wholly ‘in’ the story. I could hear the steam engine called the Aurelia Belle, feel her rumble, smell her coal, and I visited Wishing Cross, too.  
Keigan Wainwright is not your typical romantic male lead, granted, but he is kind and interesting and the sort person whom you’d wish to have a wonderful life, simply because of who he is. When circumstances point him toward Wishing Cross, he goes there willingly, for the sake of a promise, and for the sake of love. What he finds when he gets there will turn his life upside down and color it with a pain and a beauty beyond anything he knew existed.
When I finished this book I was silent for several days. I needed to process this gift I’d been given, absorb it, make it a part of me, until I could find the right words to properly express the beauty it held. I hope these few words help you to buy the book, so you can find out for yourself how beautiful writing and storytelling can be.
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Along with my review I will tell you I have purchased the paperback version for my ‘real’ library, the one I visit, the one I love best of all, the one where life-long friends come to live with me.
Do not hesitate – hit the buy button now.

Very well done. 

About the Author:

February Grace is an author, poet, and artist from Southeastern Michigan. She has created characters with clockwork hearts, told the romantic tale of modern fairy godparents, put her own spin on a classic tale, and now takes readers on a journey back in time in her fifth novel published by Booktrope, WISHING CROSS STATION. 

She's done a few more or less interesting things in her life, not the least of which include working for Disney, getting kissed by a Klingon (it was unprovoked) and going blind, though she wouldn't personally recommend the latter. She would however highly recommend the doctors who helped partially restore her sight after a long series of surgeries between 2009 and 2011. 

She sings on key, plays by ear, and is more than mildly obsessed with colors, music, and meteor showers. 

She considers each day a gift, and is eternally grateful to all the amazing people who have helped make her writing dreams come true.
