The Other Side of Heaven, Book
One of the Italian Time Travel Series

Californian Gwendolyn Godwyn seeks to learn her family’s
history and hopes to restore the bond that once existed between her Italian forebearers and those who live in America. While visiting her
ancestral Italian town, Gwen is caught in a violent earthquake and inexplicably
thrust through time. At first refusing to believe what has happened, she
nevertheless uses her wits to survive, donning a monk’s cowl to hide her
identity as a woman. Ripped apart from all she has ever known, Gwen finds
herself in the midst of brutal territorial battles in an era she once blithely
called “The Dark Ages.” When the golden Italian summer of 951 emerges from
the strife and gloom, Gwen joins forces with a cadre of gallant men, allies in
the struggle against the evil nobles, Willa of Tuscany and Count Berengar,
kidnappers of Italy’s rightful queen, Adelaide. Along with Father Warinus and
Lord Alberto Uzzo, Gwen seeks to rescue Adelaide
and restore her kingdom. In the midst of this great adventure, Gwen falls
in love with the complex and passionate Alberto, to whom she reveals her
identity as a woman. But can Alberto learn to love her strong and independent
nature and help Gwen in her quest to discover her rightful place in time?

  1. Thank you so much for spotlighting our Italian duo, Betty! We are excited to introduce your readers to Gwen, Alberto, Stefano, Queen Adelaide, King Otto and… Willa, our witch! Even though this is a time travel novel, and therefore considered historical fantasy, our plots are grounded in real history and follow the lives of actual historical persons. It is our pleasure to introduce one and all to Adelaide and Otto. Their amazing story is filled with conflict and romance, but is little remembered beyond Germany and Italy. It is a tale for all time.

    • One of the many things I love about your books is the historical accuracy, Deborah. Your attention to detail and the extensive research you do is evident in the story. Not to mention your wonderful characters like Willa (ooooh), Gwen and Alberto…ah, Alberto.
