Izzy is keeping something hidden and when he tries to force her to tell him what it is a whirlwind sends him back to 1923 to the home of the Van Buren siblings. Izzy, a free spirit, takes one look at him and wants to jump his bones. She intends to make Rufus husband number three but he is more interested in her best friend Grace, a barnstorming stunt pilot who doesn't want to have anything to do with love. With her attitude and Rufus's mission it will be a miracle if these two people can forge a lasting relationship.

KINDRED SPIRITS is a light-hearted time travel romance that is a witty and very enjoyable reading experience. Trapped in the past, with his only connection to his present a cell phone that can span the decades and allow him to talk to the Professor, Rufus is constantly sidetracked from his main mission by his growing feelings for Grace. Although Izzy is frivolous and a bit promiscuous, she provides much needed comic relief when the relationship between Grace and Rufus threatens to overheat.
