HASH(0x9510c4a4) out of 5 stars A haunting blend of romance, fate, and time travel 4 Jun. 2008
By Bundt Lust - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Marisa Montes's A Circle of Time is a magical tale that blends time travel, fate, and romance. Fourteen-year-old Allison Blair lives in the 1990s, but after a horrific bike accident that results in her being thrown down the side of a ledge (minus helmet), she ends up hovering between life and death in a coma. A mysterious young girl named Becky Lee Thompson begs her for help, telling Allison that she helped save her life, and expects the same in return.

Allison is sent back to 1906 California days before the massive earthquake, and must relive Becky's footsteps to discover how she can help change the course of history. She's terrified of Becky's abusive mother and entranced by Joshua, the sweet young boy who has a chaste crush on Becky. Most of all, Allison-as-Becky feels horribly confused, since Becky's not giving her any guidance. Allison does reveal some future inventions to Joshua, but the most annoying modern insertion that grated on my nerves was the section where Allison is preaching about feminism to 1906 Californian men and expecting them to change instantly; it felt false and out of place.

At times, she's pulled back to the present, where she can hear her mother but can't respond. As precious minutes tick by and Allison develops a dangerous brain bleed in the present, her time to save Becky in the past runs dangerously low. After a disastrous first attempt, she has the opportunity to start over (it feels a bit like Groundhog Day - 15th Anniversary Edition for a brief minute).

Montes brings the settings to vivid life, particularly the forest where healer Magda lives, and the elegant estate where the Cardona Pomales, immigrants from Spain, live. The descriptions of vineyards reminded me of the glorious setting of A Walk in the Clouds. The plot unwinds gradually, with plenty of twists and turns in store, including several mysteries that have an impact on the finale. The ending was sweet without being overdone, and was the perfect finish to this bewitching blend of romance.

HASH(0x9510c8ac) out of 5 stars a circle of time 29 Nov. 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was SOOOOOOO good. I recommend it to everyone. even if you don't like time travel and that kind of stuff, it's still a really good book. Everything ties in together at the end, and it keeps you guessing the whole way through. The plot is really interesting, and I couldn't put it down- I read it in about two hours, so always have a lot of time when you feel like reading this book. It always helps to re-read it-- you get the extra details and it's even more enthralling. This book is perfect for anyone who loves a good mystery, probably ages 10+.
HASH(0x9510cb10) out of 5 stars A Great Read! 13 Mar. 2006
By Jane E. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A Circle of Time by Marisa Montes is an excellent book for young readers. I think that females might like it more than males. This is a story of time travel that shows the struggle of two young girls to survive during different time periods. Somehow, the two girls become connected as Melissa tries desperately to change history and save Becky's life in order to save her own future life. This book has a little bit of history, a little bit of romance and a lot of excitement. I like time travel stories and this one was an excellent blending of two worlds. This book is exciting right to the end. I highly recommend this book to young readers.
HASH(0x9510ccb4) out of 5 stars The Best 19 April 2008

I love this book! Its filled with happy and sad moments! Its about a girl that gets hit by a car and is in coma. Somehow their is a connection between this girl in the 1800 and her. She travel back and forth to her body and Becky's. Mean while she finds true love and respect for a guy that Becky has know since a baby. Becky need Allison to do something for her but Allison dose not know what it is. Will she ever find out or will she die trying? All you have to do is flip the book open, and dive into a book that well warm your heart.
HASH(0x9510cf0c) out of 5 stars For Sci Fi Fans And Non Sci Fi Fans Alike 3 Sept. 2005
By BookChic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a magnificent piece of art. The plot was so intricately woven together and all problems resolved together in the end. Everyone should read this book, it's not very sci fi so don't miss out just because you don't like that type of stuff. Personally, I never like science fiction time travel, but I might be more willing to try other time travel books now that I have read this GREAT book.
