This book is my favourite out of the whole series (Both Sides of Time, Out of Time, Prisoner of Time, For All Time), noting, that I've only read the first two.
This book is about a girl named Annie Lockwood thrown back in time to a household called the Strattons. She falls in love with the son and heir, Strat. It describes the clothes they wore, how the maids worked and their daily days in the form of a story. I liked best that they wove family history into a romance as I never get to find a story about family life, plus, I love romance.
Brilliant book in which I do certainly recommend! I've read it four times! It still amazes me how much I enjoy it each time. (^^)

A higher rating than 5 stars, this book should have it! 17 July 2003
By Trekkintheplains - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I've always been fascinated by the concept of time travel. I like to write and my stories end up in this theme time and time again. I was in 8th grade when I saw this book in a school catalog and read its description. When I got the book, I started reading and could NOT put it down! Even 6 years later it still holds my admiration. It's one of my very favorite books still out of the many I have read, and I read every night. A 300 page book takes me 3-4 days!
Annie is a high school girl with a handsome but unfortunately unromantic, car-obsessed boyfriend. He lives at the soon to be demolished, now apartmented, Stratton Mansion. Annie dreams of the days when the mansion was at its peak and of the romance that must have occurred there. Suddenly she finds herself flung 100 years into the past in a real-life true romance, the rival of rich but plain, love-stricken Harriet who pines for the same man as Annie. What Annie didn't bargain for was a murder mystery and a plot against the entire Stratton family by several wicked characters, working together and separately for their own selfish goals and twisted motives. It's a race against time to save herself, her true love and those around him.
I recommend Both Sides of Time, and its companion Out of Time to anyone with a heart for romance and a desire to live in times long past. The characters will surprise you and will make you think twice about human nature, you might even find pity for those you hate and unexpected sympathy. Your heart will be in your throat to the very end.

A wonderful story! 3 Mar 2000
By 7th Grade Student - Published on
Format: Paperback
Have you ever thought of going back in time? Well in this book, Both Sides Of Time, a girl named Annie Lockwood does. She travels back to 1895. There she falls in love with a handsome, nice, polite, and wealthy gentleman named Strat. Strat loves her too but their love hurts many people around them. I loved this book. I could realate to the characters and I could picture each scene in my mind very vividly. It was a murder mystery, love story, a time fantasy, and it displayed relationships in two centuries. In fact, I liked this book so much that I bought both of the other books in the series! This book was mysterious and intriguing. I really liked that. I admit that the first couple of pages threw me off. I didn't get what was going on and I was worried that the whole book would be like that. But I did catch the drift about what was going on after a few pages. After that I couldn't put the book down. At the end I was just left hanging. I wanted more of the book. So I was glad when I went to the store and saw the other books. If you like love stories and mysteries you will like this book. I know I did.

More Shallow than the Kiddie Pool 6 July 2010
By Jessica - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was really looking forward to this book--I'm a huge fan of time-traveler books (Jude Devereaux's "A Knight in Shining Armor", among others) and after hearing a friend dote on this series I couldn't wait to try it out.

I made it a little over halfway through before I just couldn't stomach another word. Not only are the characters shallow and barely constructed, but their thoughts sound like the words of a four-year-old enamored with her favorite TV show. The story itself--the setting, the research, the plot--have the potential to produce a five-star product, but Cooney seriously fails somewhere between her thoughts and the act of writing them down.

If you love Harlequin books, shallow romances, and fuddy-duddy teen novels, definitely give this one a go. If you prefer substance, keep moving! (:

--By the way, this is one of my first ever negative book reviews. That, in itself, should be saying something. I feel oddly dirty now. ):

An excellent book of character development. 22 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be very entertaining. The plot was creative and somewhat logistic, but I found the best part of the book in the characters themselves. I enjoyed seeing how people would react to situations in the book, especially Annie and Strat the two main characters. I would recommend this book for anyone.

Both sides of time, a Review 9 Mar 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Both Sides of Time Caroline B. Cooney
Annie Lockwood is a hopeless romantic in a year (1995) where romance doesn't mean much. She always thought that she'd find true love if she lived in the 1800's, and not the 1900's. As Annie goes into an old mansion to see her non- romantic boyfriend,Sean, she gets a strange falling sensation. Thinking that it was just drowsiness from the sun, she wakes up to find her self in a fully furnished mansion, and a loud banging noise in the background. To her surprise and delight, she she was falling back in time, to the 1850's being charmed by a young Strat, the son of the owner of the mansion, along with other lively and mysterious characters. But,the tide turns when Annie, or Anna Sophia as she is called, is thought to be a murderer and must chose between her family and Strat. This was an exciting and unpredictable book. You'll start reading it for it's charm and story, and you'll finish it for the lingering mystery unraveled.
