About The Book:  Amber Mathis, a Wall Street investment banker, returns to her office after burying her Grandmother. Distraught, tired of the rat race, she's determined to make a career change. In the elevator she falls and rises to find herself in a vintage lift. The date is February 25, 1930, and a man stands on the window ledge ready to jump.

Wellman Hathaway, owner and CEO of Hathaway Bank in New York struggles to pay his depositors half their losses. A woman claiming to be from 2011 appears in his office and involves him in a scheme that forces them into marriage. With Amber's knowledge of the financial history of the 1930s, they travel to the oil fields of Texas to recoup Wellman's funds.

Two people from different centuries are thrown together to survive a difficult time. Will they find more than A Way Back to prosperity?

The Review:  This story had me hooked from the first page. It was so well written and eloquent in the use of the English language, I was crying along with the Amber Mathis as she grieved for her deceased Grandmother and her turmoil over finding herself in another time period.
The turmoil between Amber and her new husband Wellman, kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page. The tension between the two main characters, was well written and very believable. I could not put this book down until I had read every last word. I can't wait to read more stories from the very talented author, Linda LaRoque.
