The Time Collector
A thrilling page-turner from Gwendolyn Womack, the USA Today bestselling author of The Fortune Teller
Travel through time with the touch of a hand.
Roan West was born with an extraordinary gift: he can perceive the past of any object he touches. A highly skilled pyschometrist, he uses his talents to find and sell valuable antiques, but his quiet life in New Orleans is about to change. Stuart, a fellow pyschometrist and Roan’s close friend, has used his own abilities to unearth several out-of-place-artifacts or “ooparts”—like a ring that once belonged to the seventeenth-century mathematician and philosopher René Descartes, but was found buried in prehistoric bedrock.
The relics challenge recorded history, but soon after the discovery, Stuart disappears, making him one of several psychometrists who have recently died or vanished without a trace. When Roan comes across a viral video of a young woman who has discovered a priceless pocket watch just by “sensing” it, he knows he has to warn her—but will Melicent Tilpin listen? And can Roan find Stuart before it’s too late?
The quest for answers will lead Roan and Melicent around the world—before it brings them closer to each other and a startling truth—in the latest romantic thriller from Gwendolyn Womack, the bestselling, PRISM Award-winning author of The Memory Painter and The Fortune Teller.
This is the second book I have read by this author. The first was The Fortune Teller. That book was so good that when I saw this newest book from Ms. Womack that I could not wait to read it. Well I am happy to report that it is even better. With this uphill stride; I can't wait to see what Ms. Womack comes out with next. Sadly, I have to wait as this book is the newest one currently.
Roan's gift is very intriguing. Imagine touching an object and learning the history behind it. Visually as if he lived that person's life. Melicent has an amazing ability as well. Together these to worked well together.
Ms. Womack pens a rich storyline with engaging characters in The Time Collector. I was transported within the pages of this book. I didn't want to leave. I started this book and found myself finishing it within a matter of a few short hours. Make sure that The Time Collector is in your shopping cart.
