Title: Halwyn’s Portrait: A Time Travel Romance
Author: SK Wee
The year is 2015 and a tragic car accident on an icy road in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan sets into motion a series of life-changing events for twins Robyn and Tyler Madison. Determined to rebound from a dead-end job and a failed marriage, Robyn puts her heart and soul into solving a family mystery—a portrait of an unknown man with haunted, melancholy eyes.
On September 14, 1854, during a raging storm, the ship ‘Mighty Molly Raye’ sank off the coast of Grand Island. Robyn’s ancestor, Cecil Dunbar, the lighthouse keeper, managed to rescue the prized cargo but was unable to decipher the instructions for its destination. Robyn, with the use of resources like the internet, feels it’s her duty to solve the mystery.
After a car accident, Robyn finds her life turned upside down. In a series of events, she finds herself obsessed with a family mystery—finding out who the man is in an old portrait. Diving headfirst into the mystery, her journey will take her places she never imagined they could go.
Robyn was a character I found easy to relate to. The way her entire world was written made her seem so real, so easy to understand. This is definitely one of the more enjoyable versions of a time travel romance I’ve read in a while.
Intense and compelling, Hawlyn’s Portrait is the perfect mix of suspense and romance.
