Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor

Publication Date: March 1st 2016

Goodreads Summary
“Seventy-two hours, then we have to be back at the clearing. Sunrise on the third day.”

Being “the homeschooled girl,” in a small town, Hope Walton’s crippling phobias and photographic memory don’t help her fit in with her adoptive dad’s perfectly blonde Southern family. But when her mother is killed in a natural disaster thousands of miles from home, Hope’s secluded world crumbles. After an aunt she’s never met invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Hope discovers that her mother was more than a brilliant academic. She’s a member of a secret society of time travelers, and is actually trapped in the twelfth century in the age of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Now Hope must conquer her numerous fears and travel back in time to help rescue her mother before she’s lost for good. Along the way, she’ll discover more family secrets, and a mysterious boy who could be vital to setting her mother free… or the key to Hope’s undoing.


Here’s a little fun fact about me. This past July I graduated university with a History degree. In my final year, my specialized subject was on all things Henry II. So naturally when I read the synopsis I was intrigued and I’m curious to see how or if the history of that period is covered. Time traveling is usually a hit or miss for me but I have high hopes for this book.

What’s your most anticipated book?

  1. A secret society of time travelers- that can be good or bad. 🙂 But I’m curious about this one, both for the timeframe and, I have to admit, that short summary hinting at a time rush to get back. Plus the cover… this might be good!

  2. It’s so cool that you got a history degree and you specialize in the era in this book! I’m superrr excited for it. 😀 Did you hear it was getting a cover change? (Although I like the current one a lot) Recent time travel books that I thought were amazing are Passenger and The Girl From Everywhere. So many of them are coming out next year!

    • haha I had to do a double take when I saw the mention of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. This period in history has always fascinated me because there are so many moments of political maneuvering and incidents that really made the dynamic between the European rulers fascinating.
      I’ve not heard about this cover change. I’m going to have to check this out.
      Passenger may be one of my most anticipated books for the upcoming year and I will most definitely be checking out The Girl From Everywhere. Thanks for the recommendations. 😀
