WELCOME to Nassau harbor!!! This lovely island is one of the settings for The Reckoning, MaryLu Tyndall's latest exciting release! This is a time travel book, so there are both contemporary and historical elements plus even an alternate reality section--it really showcases MaryLu's considerable skills as an author!
A modern day miss is transported back in time when she finds this amulet aboard ship during a modern-day Tall Ships festival in coastal California! And it plays a part in the story line, of course, for the ending because there has to be a "portal" when you have a time travel novel.

Once you step off Captain Dutton's ship, The Reckoning, be sure to board Itasca, a Mississippi steamboat traveling from St. Louis to Minneapolis in 1855.
This is the ship our heroine, Josette LeBlanc, takes from St. Louis to Minnesota Territory in hopes of finding a husband. She goes after seeing this ad: Wanted: good-looking women for the town of Little Falls, Minnesota Territory. We guarantee a hundred eligible bachelors for every single lady. If interested, please inquire with Philip Sommers at the company store.

and a Chippewa mother
|Little Falls, Minnesota|
When Josette arrives in Little Falls, she reserves a sitting room at the Northern Hotel to conduct interviews with prospective grooms. However, when the appointed hour arrives, the hotel proprietor doesn't bring her to the sitting room...he brings her to the ballroom, where over a hundred eligible men stand waiting!
But only one man catches Josette's eye. His name is Alexandre Dugas and he's traveling up the Mississippi from New Orleans to pastor a small church just north of Little Falls.
