Into the Dim Cover Image
ISBN: 9780544602007
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Hmh Books for Young Readers - March 1st, 2016

This debut novel of time travel, Tesla, and teenage turmoil was completely engaging, from the fascinating voice of claustrophobic, socially isolated, brilliant protagonist Hope Walton to the depictions both positive (no pollution!) and negative (hygiene, anti-Semitism, sexism) of the 12th Cantury. Admittedly I am predisposed to any book that includes Eleanor of Aquitaine as a character. I was delighted to experience Hope’s discovery of her family secret and quest to save her mother. And, hey, Diana Gabaldon (Outlander) also liked Into the Dim, and she knows whereof she blurbs! – Maryelizabeth
