Long lost is one of those rare gem finds that you come across by accident and quickly becomes your new favourite series. I found once I started this book I couldn’t put it down.
Michelle Read stands out in this valiant début as an author to watch out for and I can not wait to see where she goes in the next books.
If you are a fan of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, then this is the book for you. I can highly recommend this fast paced time travel series.
