Maureen Gourlay, A LoveReading Ambassador
William Wells, a gifted but risk-averse US college dropout living an unadventurous life in London, stumbles upon a mysterious Timepiece with the ability to alter time. When the Timepiece’s previous owner is brutally murdered by unknown assailants, Will flees, only to see the love of his life, Abigayle, vanish before his eyes when she comes into contact with this remarkable watch.
He now finds himself alone in an unfamiliar city, wanted for a murder he didn’t commit and the prime suspect in a woman’s disappearance. Whether he knows it or not, Will does have one advantage – control over the most powerful force in the universe: time. The only problem is that he has no idea how to wield it. Those who do, members of a secretive and long-forgotten organisation, are also on his trail and there are no lines they won't cross to recover The Timepiece.

A quick and easy to sink into story filled with history, and time travel.
‘The Timepiece and the Girl Who Went Astray’ is a quick and easy to sink into story filled with history, and time travel. William is a US college dropout living in London. His unassuming life is changed when he purchases a watch. The timepieces’ mysterious and bloody history catches up to William and he finds himself wanted for murder and being chased through history by a secret organisation to claim this Timepiece back for themselves.
I thought that the plot flowed well, there’s a lot of description and historic detail that the author is clearly either very knowledgeable, or has been very well researched. I liked Will, his character is well-rounded and dynamic, and I enjoyed following his story. The story is captivating with lots of mystery, suspicious characters and questions raised to keep you turning the pages, eager to discover more. A good book I’d recommend to sci-fi fans.
