The Twisted Tale of Stormy Gale is a beguiling tale of time travel, love, and trust. The story is told from the first person point of view from the quirky Stormy's viewpoint. Stormy offers deep insight and humor while telling her story. She is a time pirate who was originally born in 1810 and whisked away from her pallid London life by a gentle man who becomes her adoptive father to live in the 21st century.
Stormy becomes a time pirate where she and her brother, Bacon, help the human condition without disrupting the delicate equilibrium between current reality and what cannot become reality. Well, back in 1836, Bacon has lost his Time Travel Mechanism (TTM) in card game. Stormy and Bacon must travel back in time to locate and retrieve the vital TTM before it gets into the wrong hands. The Duke of Leister (Devlin) is a scientist in his own right and is the person who divested Bacon on the TTM.
The antics Stormy has to go through to get her machine back is funny, especially told from her point of view. However, humor has nothing to do with the feelings that develop between Devlin and Stormy and a connection she never dreamed they would share.
Christine Bell does a very good job of putting together a very appealing love story in a short amount of time. This short, romantic read should not be overlooked!
Happy Reading from Bona Fide Reflections!!
