Gabriella has never spent a summer in Italy like this one. Remaining means giving up all she’s known and loved—and leaving means forfeiting what she’s come to know—and love itself.

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Bentarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives with their parents, famed Etruscan scholars, among the romantic hills. Gabi and Lia are stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, boring, and dusty archeological site—until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, she finds herself in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces.

And thus she comes to be rescued by the knight-prince Marcello Falassi, who takes her back to his father’s castle—a castle Gabi has seen in ruins in another life. Suddenly Gabi’s summer in Italy is much, much more interesting. But what do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world?

    " I can't. Most whiny, idiotic, selfish, useless character award. But the setting made for a nice change of scenery. Tuscany is underrated. "

    " I was not so sure about this book when I got it and it took me a while to decided to give it a chance. I was plesently supprised. It was not what I would call AMAZING, but it was different from what I normaly read and it kept me intrested and left me excited to read the next book (which I have on order and can not get to me soon enough!) I like Gabi enough but at times I found her abit too dull for me, I like wit and Luca was full of it! I would definatly say read it but don't expect it to be WHOO HOO! "

    " Is time travel science fiction? Does traveling back in time make this historical? So, just how would a modern person react in an earlier time? And what are the chances of coming back to the right place in time when it was over? I guess it can be whatever the author wants. It was a good story. "
