I found the book to be very engaging and entertaining. It had a nice, original idea, and the pacing of the plot was perfect; it wasn’t too slow nor too fast.
This was a magical and well written story of a young woman transcending time to one without the modern conveniences she has been accustomed to.
This is a light-hearted fun read. A great escape from the real world. If you enjoy Jane Austen, you will love this book.
Some great well-drawn characters. It is also a classic romance story with more than a couple of twists.
You know when you read a book and imagine yourself as the heroine? That's how we know it's a good story, right, when find ourselves lost in its pages ...

A mesmerizing tale of forbidden love, friendship, and time travel set in the Regency era in England, William Through Time breezes past without a single hitch.
The storyline is heartrending, heartwarming, and ultimately full of joy with a delightful happily-ever-after end.
Romance that is against the law, but you can't help you love.
I was drawn to this book for the premise— I love time travel romance— and it absolutely lived up to my hopes on that front. It’s also an emotionally charged love story that brings together compelling characters with care and nuance.
This was another really strong entry in the Magical Bookshop series, the characters were what I enjoyed from the previous books. It had a great time-travel going on and does what I was hoping for. Harmke Buursma has a great way of writing and a strong entry in the scifi genre. - About Beth Through Time
The characters were well written and entertaining and I really enjoyed the way they created their relationship. Certainly worth a read and I'm excited for the next one in the series.
