He’s from 1892 England, she’s in a small
library in 2017. And that's just the start of their troubles.

Emme never meant to stay in Maine. She'd
come only to find a librarian for her Gram's library, a custodian for the
collection of mysterious books she'd promised to protect. On a dark, wintery
night, alone in the library, she takes her first glance into one of the antique
novels and finds herself transported to 1892 England staring into the eyes of
handsome and dashing hero Jack Ridgewell. As each chapter passes she learns you
can truly fall in love with a character in a book, that book boyfriends are
real and Emme must choose between the real world, and his.

When the last page is read he's gone and
Emme feels the cold loneliness of lost love. Will she find Jack again, or will
their love be forever lost? The answer lies within the pages…

When I first met Jessa at my grandma’s
funeral I hated her. Upon my first impression, I walked away thinking she was
pretentious and rude. She wore a pink dress to a funeral. I mean who does that?
Then when I found out she was going to
be my protector, I hated her even more. Jessa’s parents were high society and
they were involved with my family in dealings with historical artifacts. They
didn’t know my ancestors travelled through time, but they knew we were
important historians and that we preserved facts. My grandma thought Jessa
would be a good match to help me. I thought that she was senile and wrong and
that it wasn’t going to work out, but I was wrong. We learned to like each
other and then we became best friends. Turns out my grandma was right.

Jessa was my guide and I need more than just
her friendship. While I travel through time she watches over me, keeping me
safe. Jessa is also responsible for making sure my clothing is appropriate for
the time frame, while also assisting me while I chronical what I have seen and
what experiences I’ve gone through. She keeps notes on all of these things in
her guide book, which basically makes her invaluable to me and to the work that
I do. In order to travel through time you must have a guide you can trust, and
I trust Jessa with my life.

The most important research was kept
inside the blank pages of a book. Each mission yielded a new book. Once that
book was full and our mission complete, it was sealed. I’m a librarian but not
in the typical sense. I haven’t earned the proper diploma to get such a title.
I, along with many others throughout the world, preserve the history of some of
the most famous historical figures inside the blank pages of each book we are
sent. The Librarians was founded by a famous scientist, Harold Lockhart.
Lockhart wrote the formula for time travel in the only thing he had near him
when it was fresh in his brain. That book wasn’t empty, it happened to be the
history of none other than, Abraham Lincoln. After he wrote the formula, he was
whisked away in time and came face to face with Lincoln himself. The talent to
travel and record history was never his intention, but after he realized how
wrong historians were about the president, he created the group of librarians.
Lockhart put us in charge of libraries and their books. The sect of librarians
were given their jobs and they went to work straight away.

myself hope to achieve the goal of working in a library with the official title
someday, which is what I’m studying in school. My intention is to host my own
library and help archive important time periods through my research as well as
artifacts, like my grandma did. Like all the women did who came before her.

All I know about my job before I travel is who
I’m to research. Everything else is learned while I’m inside the book, or in
other words, the past.

I’m forbidden to change history by
becoming involved in the past or with my target. But I can become friendly with
them and immerse myself in their world. It’s hard not to become part of it.
While I’m there I am more than just a girl recording the true history. I become
my character fully and truly; as if I really am who I say I am. I’ve been many
different people, travelling five separate times into five people’s world. And
each time I go, I’m nervous. It doesn’t take long to fill the pages the
Historical Society of Libraries sends me. I’m currently one of the youngest on
the East Coast. My job is taken extremely serious for I have wanted to do this
for a long time. Now that it’s my job, I feel as if I am living the dream.

How could I not love it? I am a college
student full time and on my off days I travel to the past. What is there not to
