I was able to download a FREE copy of Wrapped in the Past by Chess Desalls to my Kindle from Amazon. Below is my unbiased review of Wrapped in the Past by Chess Desalls.
Wrapped in the Past is set in the 1930s. The leading character of Wrapped in the Past is a teenage girl named, Shirlyn. This short story begins on the morning of Christmas, where we find Shirlyn eager to begin the Christmas holiday. When her parents awaken, Shirlyn discovers that her father has a surprise in store for the three of them that day. Shirlyn's father has built a time travel machine and Shirlyn and her parents travel back in time to ancient Persia where they meet the three Magi as the Magi are following the Star of Bethlehem. This makes for an interesting concept for a short story and I enjoyed reading about their adventures. Shirlyn is a given a gift from one of the three magi that she is able to take home with her and cherish the gift she is given forever.
After Shirlyn and her parents return from their visit to ancient Persia, they also travel to the past and visit Venice, Italy as well.
The following is a plot summary for Wrapped in the Past by Chess Desalls from Amazon:
Shirlyn travels back in time to ancient Persia where she meets the three magi who follow the Star of Bethlehem. After a mishap threatens to send her ride home without her, the youngest mage exhibits a hidden talent that leaves an impression on his elders and on Shirlyn's heart. But his silhouette will forget they ever met, unless she leaves a reminder that comes with a heavy price.Overall, Wrapped in the Past is a likable read for me and has a nice concept. But, it was a flat read in parts. I felt like it needed more zing to it for me to give it a higher rating.
I am giving Wrapped in the Past by Chess Desalls a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!!
