Marley has been used and intimidated by abusive men her entire life and only as she accidentally travels back in time does she find her true strength. Immortal, the second volume of The Trelawneys of Williamsburg series by Anne Meredith, follows the plot and action of Tender by having the second of three sisters return to colonial times to find their strength and, more importantly, their loves.
Marley is rescued at sea after falling overboard on a day cruise in the Caribbean, but her salvation comes over 200 years before her birth. Fitting into a shipboard routine dominated by men is precarious, especially as British vessels ply the waters, looking for smugglers and contraband. Bronson, otherwise known as Hawk, is the captain of a ship that is helping supply the colonists who are gathering to fight the British for their freedom. Needless to say, the action is perilous and the danger compounded by evil men looking for revenge against the earlier time travelers who upset the trade that made them rich. Fortunately, the strength and determination of the group of freed slaves, who took the name of their benefactor and became the Trelawneys of Williamsburg, as well as the remaining Trelawney men, provide tremendous hope for the growing movement toward independence.
Powerful emotions, vivid historical detail, a broad array of depictions of colonial life, and the surprises of time travel make Immortal a delight to read. A true romance, this volume contains more frequent and in-depth intimacy than the first book, but it is not truly graphic – it speaks to the depth of passion Marley and Bronson share. A list of characters at the end of the book provides help in identifying the major characters, but reading Tender, Volume One of the series, is strongly recommended. For historical romance readers who enjoy a well-designed series, The Trelawneys of Williamsburg is a must-read.
