Hi! Wow, what an impressive story! You've managed to do so much here: create likeable, vibrant characters, an exciting historical setting, and a really engaging plot. I loved every minute of reading this!

Miriam is really cute, and I liked her from the start. She seems like she's sort of at a crossroads in her life, waiting for something important to happen. And what a creative idea to have it all start with cleaning up Time Turner dust! That's something I would never have thought of, but of course it makes sense that it would be a dangerous job. But Miriam was clever enough to make the most of the situation (and even help invent the Time Turner in the process.) She was a great narrator, and she made this story even more enjoyable to read :)

I love that the ship was real, and that Miriam got to experience real-life history firsthand! Your descriptions of life at sea were so vivid and lovely, and even perilous at times. I really felt like I was there with her. I liked your supporting cast a lot too, especially Mr. Hopkins at the Ministry. He seemed like a real sweetheart, and his dialogue was fun to read :)

I love stories that feature ordinary people getting an extraordinary moment of glory. Miriam helping to invent the Time Turner was a great one! That's something she can be proud of forever, and that will hopefully help her gain the confidence she needs to pursue her dreams in her own time. This experience will be a real catalyst for growth for her, which is what we all want to see in a good story :). Awesome job with this!

Author's Response: Eee thanks Maggie!!! I'm so glad the characters were likeable and that the plot was engaging! I thought I might have gotten too carried away with that bizarre plot line but I'm thrilled to hear that it was exciting rather than weird! :P I've always thought time travel is an interesting concept, and we don't get much background on the limitations of Time-Turners in the books, which left a lot of room for interpretation.

I like stories about ordinary people too. Not everyone can be the Chosen One :P So I tried to make her pretty average and realistic. And yes, I like to think that she kind of found herself on that journey and pursued her dreams once she got back :)

Thank you so much for your lovely review!
