Book description
Beth, an enthusiast history student gets the shock of her life, when her professor's gold cypher ring opens up a mysterious portal that takes her to Tudor England and Hever Castle, where she becomes an integral part of Anne Boleyn's life.

She's been warned not to meddle or risk changing history, but can she allow her dear friend to go on to become the second wife of King Henry VIII and to end up in the Tower of London to meet a horrific death? Can Beth save herself from the machinations of the Tudor Court, or will she meet the same fate as the queen to be? Only the ring has the answer.

My thoughts
I enjoyed listening to this book and thought it was a nice version of a Tudor story. I did like Elizabeth and how she accepted that she went back in time and became friends with Anne Boleyn. I am not sure I could have stayed in the past as she did no matter how much I love history. The only part I did not care for was the inclusion of the virus in the story. For me it did not fit and I felt like it was an after thought that was just thrown in to make it a part of the story. I would like to see how things are in the future for Elizabeth. I thank the author for the opportunity to get to listen to this book.
