Timeless (Timeless, #1)

#1:  

“After the maid had shut the door behind her, Clara fixed her attention back on Michele, looking fearful. “Why could she not see you? Are you a ghost? Have I gone mad?” 

Michele pinched herself again, and the pain followed on cue. A she stared at the crystal clear scene in front of her, she felt her stomach drop further in alarm. Was it possible that she wasn’t hallucinating all this? But in what alternate universe could this be read? 

“What year is it?” she asked, though she was afraid she already knew what Clara’s answer would be.” “

#2:

 The Windsor attic was organized and tidily lined with boxes–hardly the spooky, dank place Michele had imagined.  The first row of boxes were labeled with names of unfamiliar Windsors, but lying on top of those boxes, oddly out of place, was a music composition book. Michele picked it up curiously.  The front cover read “Songs by Lily Windsor, 1925.”  Michele grinned.  Lilly must have been Michele’s age when she’d written these sings; how incredible it was to find handwritten lyrics from when she’d been and aspiring songwriter like Michele! She held on to the composition book while she continued to look around.

As she made her way back to the back of the attic, she saw a name that she recognized in on of the boxes: George Windsor, 1859-1922.  Was that Clara’s dad?  Michele felt a stab of guilt as she remembered her promise to help Clara She had all but forgotten her in a whirlwind of Philip.

Michele quickly opened the box. She found a number of odds and ends inside: business documents, letters, and photos.  then on of the faded old black-and-white photos caught her eye. It was a photo of a woman in the picture Clara had shown her–Clara’s mother! The photo was crumbling with age at the edges, but the words scribbled at the bottom of the picture were unmistakable: I love you always. Alanna.
