Read the book review:
A Shape on the Air
Unlocking a love that lasts for lifetimes - and beyond: when Dr Viv DuLac, a medievalist and academic, slips into 499 AD and into the body of Lady Vivianne, little does she realise that both their lives across the centuries will become intertwined as they fight for their dreams … and their lives.
How can the key which Viv brings back with her to the present unlock the love they both crave, and help them through the dangers they both face? And how can they help each other across the centuries, without changing the course of history?
A Shape on the Air is a novel that asks: is there still 'magic' in the world?
