Y is for Years & an Ocean

Y is for Years & an Ocean (Jo Noelle)
Annd . . . what’s the blurb? Going to a séance was supposed to be a harmless diversion in Victorian England, but for Delia Spencer, it was life altering. Since that day, she has been plagued by fainting spells, while her consciousness visits Elle Thomas more than a century in the future. 

In modern-day New York, Elle has kept secret the dream-like memories of Delia’s life. As the visits have become more frequent, Elle is confused about what is her life and what is not. Back in England, Delia’s father is determined to marry her off to any marginally suitable man before her illness becomes known to society. But will Delia consent, now that she’s had a taste of Elle’s independence?   

Part contemporary, part Victorian. Part romance, part tragedy. Part young adult, part new adult. 
This time travel novel is set in London, England and New York City. It is a clean romance packed with suspense and humor, and just enough kissing. Science fiction meets sweet romance in Years & an Ocean.

A Secret About the Author: Jo's favorite authors are Erin Knighley and Susanna Kearsley. Noelle's favorite authors are Simone Eckles and Jennifer E. Smith.

Sounds like an interesting book! Also sounds like a story I heard about in a writing class I took a few years ago. (Except I think that one was set in New Orleans.) Good stuff!
