Sting factor (kink): 3 out of 5
Audrey collapses at work and must take time off. She starts thinking about her dreams before her mother got sick. Abrah and his brother, Heroc, despair of ever find a wife.
I really enjoyed this book. While I have read others by Ms. Walters, this is the first book I have read in this series. The way the author wove the information about the tapestry was very realistic as well as the traditions of wives in Javara. I was intrigued by the fact that it was accepted that the tapestry would bring women from other times and places. It was also pointed out that only women that could adapt and survive Javara were brought.
The differences between their society and our modern society were contrasted very well and the author used Audrey to showcase some of the problems with workaholics. When Audrey started thinking about going back to her old job, she started having panic attacks.
The brothers were very concerned and you could see the differences in personalities and how they each reacted to the idea of Audrey returning to her time. They did their best, and I enjoyed the way the way they each reacted to Audrey and Audrey to them.
