Anna O'Shea has failed at marriage, shed her job at a law firm, and she's trying to re-create herself when she and her recalcitrant nephew are summoned to the past in a manner that nearly destroys them. Her 21st-century skills pale as she struggles to find her nephew in 19th-century Ireland. For one of them, the past is brutally difficult, filled with hunger and struggle. For the other, the past is filled with privilege, status, and a reprieve from the crushing pain of present-day life. For both Anna and her nephew, the past offers them a chance at love. Will every choice they make reverberate down through time? And do Irish Wolfhounds carry the soul of the ancient celts? The past and present wrap around finely wrought characters who reveal the road home.

Mystical, charming, and fantastic, New York Times best-selling author Jacqueline Sheehan's Now & Then is a poignant and beautiful tale of a remarkable journey. It is a miraculous evocation of a breathtaking place in a volatile age filled with rich, unforgettable, deeply human characters and one unforgettable dog named Madigan.

    " Nice time travel novel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lydia | 2/11/2014

    " I finished it, but was kind of disgusted with myself at the end that I'd wasted so much time. The oddities about this book include plot holes that are never explained and the strangest case of gratuitous genitalia references (I wish I was kidding). It's awkward and borderline inappropriate for this genre. Just plain ODD from start to finish. Wouldn't recommend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carissa | 1/31/2014

    " Struggled through this book. It was not what I was expecting for plot. Involves time travel back into the 1800's in Ireland. The parts about Anna were interesting. The parts of her nephew were the boring parts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 1/30/2014

    " I am truly enjoying this book so far! This was a great book. Very well written. I absolutely love the cover as well. I admit it, if there is a dog on the cover of a book I will most likely pick it up. That said I think this will be a book I remember for a long time! Highly recommended to everyone! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy Neal | 1/23/2014

    " Time travel. Interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/16/2014

    " time travel which is always good. Takes place in Ireland. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kwoomac | 12/31/2013

    " I'm a sucker for any book wirth a dog on the cover. This one was a sweet tale of time travel and irish wolf hounds. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 12/6/2013

    " A fantasy in the category magic - adventure - romance. Takes place in the US and Ireland in the 19th century and present time. Good summer read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen | 12/5/2013

    " I enjoyed being in Ireland, but I had concluded that I am not a big "time traveler" person. It certainly gave me pause to think about the what ifs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 12/5/2013

    " Kind of surprising and weird in the directions it took, but compelling and fun. Ireland! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abigail | 10/28/2013

    " Not what I expected at all. Instead of Boston doggie-happy chick lit, I got Irish historical fiction with time travel and almost no dog. After adjusting to this, though, I really enjoyed it. I don't think I could have asked for a better ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzanne | 10/2/2013

    " This is a weak, weak version of UK time travel as previously done by Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series (by the way, I HIGHLY recommend this series). Now & Then is written in a simplistic manner where everything works out and is best suited for a teenage audience rather than adults. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Nelle | 8/10/2013

    " okay-- not wonderful but worth reading... about time travel and I really like books on that "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dayle-Ann | 3/3/2013

    " Loved this book! Very quick read. Couldn't put it down! Went to work very tired a few days! It always left me wanting more! I'll definitely look for more books by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenifer | 11/2/2012

    " I'm a sucker for books about Ireland and books about time travel. So this was the perfect book for me. A few slow spots but overall a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 9/14/2012

    " This is a pretty quick read, and the author does a good job describing something that may seem strange - time travel. I found the characters likeable, and enjoyed reading about Ireland in the 1800's. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Solomon | 7/15/2012

    " This one had good potential, but minor plot inconsistencies spoiled it for me somewhat. Characters caught my interest, but the travel back in time provided some very unrealistic developments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy White | 7/5/2012

    " This book was OK but it is nothing like I thought it would be. I was expecting it to be about a dog and it wasn't that at all. It was about time travel. I didn't enjoy it as much as the other two books I have read by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greta Roussos | 3/5/2012

    " Well researched and imaginative, I enjoyed Now & Then by Jacqueline Sheehan, but wish the dogs would have played a bigger role in her fiction. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie | 11/17/2011

    " I'm just not much into the whole time travel thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandi Weibel | 9/28/2011

    " This book is bookcase worthy just because I loved the first book of Sheehan's that I read. This one was a little weird for me - with the time travel. But, I did enjoy it once I was in to it better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Smack24 | 4/5/2011

    " This has an interesting story to it but the ending sucked, very dissappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenifer | 3/28/2011

    " I'm a sucker for books about Ireland and books about time travel. So this was the perfect book for me. A few slow spots but overall a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wandac | 2/22/2011

    " I loved it. What could be bad. Historical fiction that has been researched and time travel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittney | 1/25/2011

    " Eh... it was ok. Not really my cup of tea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/13/2011

    " I picked up this book because of the Irish Wolfhound on the cover. I wanted a story with a dog. It wasn't what I expected curses, time travel, romance and blessings but I did enjoy it. It held my interest in a entertaining way. No life lessons necessarily but a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 11/16/2010

    " This book was not my cup of tea. I was enjoying the book, when a book set in the present day ended up, through time travel, backs in early 1800's Ireland. While the prose is pretty good, the story itself did not appeal to me. I didn't care much for it in general. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Ellen | 10/2/2010

    " Cute story. Modern woman sucked back in time to Ireland pre-famine. "
