Eloise Crimson and the Turing Pocket Watch by James D. Layton: Goodreads Giveaway
There’s currently a Goodreads giveaway running for this book. It looks really interesting, and I’ll be buying a copy!
In 1945 Eloise Crimson, bored with her stuffy life looks for adventure in war torn Europe. But gets more than she bargains for when she travels back in time on a dangerous mission to stop Hitler. Read the first instalment in the epic 9 book series covering the adventures of Eloise Crimson.
Eloise sits at her dull little desk in her stuffy little office and watches her pencil tip snap for the final time. The war in Europe fills her mind with stories of adventure and heroism and yet for a 17 year old English girl, her pencil is probably the most dangerous thing she has ever held. It is 1945 and her only chance to escape the status quo of her existence is a small advert in a local shop window looking for war volunteers. She packs her bags. Waves her town goodbye and heads for the train station with a deep feeling that adventure awaits. Little does she know that less than 48 hours later she will be wrapped up in a world of time travel, romance and an epic journey of self discovery. She is thrown into the viper pit as time itself is split like a smashed water melon, and Eloise must embark on a death defying plot to stop Adolf Hitler in his tracks. Thrown back to 1935 with her fellow volunteers. The Nazi army baying for her blood is only half as heart stopping as the feeling inside… that she was born to do this.
