Victorian Time-Travel Tale

The story Prim & Proper-T takes place in a Victorian house where I lived for a number of years. The descriptions of the house and the area are true to life from that epoch.  I often wonder if the cupboard might have given access to another century. I never tried, but this is my version of what might have been…

The Livingston family have rented a furnished house in the UK. Inventory in hand, they know exactly what to expect — except visitors from another century were never on the list…
Sam Livingston is a professor of history, specializing in the nineteenth century European Industrial Revolution in Britain. His year in England is going to allow him to delve deeper into those inventions and innovations that had indubitably changed history and social conditions, as well as affecting the politics of the time. As history is his passion, this sabbatical year will be a treat for him. Most of the excursions the family are going to take will, doubtlessly, incorporate Sam’s interest in history. How could it not in a country that had produced such people as Boadicea and Shakespeare and which boasted that Joseph of Arimathea had walked its land, possibly with a young lad named Jesus? Claudia is thrilled with the prospect of a year in Britain away from her stressful job in publishing. Acting as a stay-at-home-mom while Sam attends to his more serious business, is going to be a welcome change.

But no one suspects that the change is going to be from one century to another!
