Book Signing & Discussion with Bee Ridgway Saturday May 25th @ 1:30pm "A remarkable medley of historical fiction, romance, adventure, and fantasy, Bee Ridgway’s debut novel, The River of No Return is as imaginative as it is exhilarating. As a love story tangled up in the laws of time, “bookish fantasy fans who make it a point to keep up with Doctor Who will like this one” (Kirkus). “In her stellar debut, Ridgway manages the permutations of the time‐travel trope with originality and aplomb.” – Booklist “Ridgway offers a well‐crafted blend of science fiction, romance, mystery, and historical fiction…” – Publishers Weekly
In Bee Ridgway’s wonderfully imaginative debut novel, a man and a woman travel through time in a quest to bring down a secret society that controls the past and, thus, the future.
“You are now a member of the Guild. There is no return.”
Two hundred years after he was about to die on a Napoleonic battlefield, Lord Nicholas Falcott wakes up in a hospital bed in twenty-first century London. The Guild, a secretive organization that controls time travel, helps him make a new life in the modern world.
But Nick yearns for home and for one beautiful woman in particular, now lost to history.
Back in 1815, that very woman, Julia Percy, finds herself the guardian of a family secret inherited from her enigmatic grandfather... how to manipulate time. But there are those who seek to possess Julia’s power and she begins to realize she is in the gravest peril.
The Guild’s rules are made to be broken, and Nick discovers how to travel back to the nineteenth century and his ancestral home. Fate and the fraying fabric of time draw Nick and Julia together once again . . . soon enough, they are caught up in an adventure that puts the future of the world into their hands.
Love endures the gulf of centuries . . . and so does danger. As gripping as it is evocative, The River of No Return is a sweeping story of lovers who match wits and gamble their hearts against the rules of time itself. www.beeridgway.com About the Author Bee Ridgway holds a PhD in Literature from Cornell University and is a professor of English literature at Bryn Mawr College.
