Putney's young adult debut combines historical fiction, magic, romance and time travel and does it very well. Tory is the youngest daughter of an Earl. When it is discovered that she has magic, she is exiled to Lackland Abbey to be cured. Aristocrats hate magic. Once there she gains a different perspective on her magic when she meets other students who are trying to learn to use theirs for England's gain. She also meets town people who have always embraced their magic. She travels in time to the future and to a time that is in great need of her magical abilities. This was entertaining and engaging. This one does not end on a cliffhanger but the second book comes out in September.
