If you are a Whovian, (that would be a fan of the science fiction television program, Doctor Who, from the BBC) you have probably been hearing, reading and experiencing the upheaval in fandom for the past few months over the fact that the new Doctor is a woman. Does that matter? Let’s discuss….
Timebound shares the story of Kate Pierce-Keller, a pretty average sixteen-year old girl. She’s worried about all of the typical things that a teenage girl spends her time on; boys, clothes, school. There’s really nothing extraordinary about her. Well, until the day she realizes that her grandmother isn’t as off her rocker as Kate had imagined. It seems that a strange little piece of jewelry her grandmother always cherished is far more than just random bling. In fact, at one point that little medallion is the only thing that stops Kate from winking completely out of existence.
And thus begins the wibbliest wobbliest time travel journey and adventure since Doctor Who crossed time lines back and forth in his epic battle against Daleks and Cybermen.
Ellie Carver arrives at her grandmother’s bedside expecting to find her silently slipping away. Instead, the beloved woman begins speaking. Of a secret past and castle ruins forgotten by time. Of a hidden chapel that served as a rendezvous for the French Resistance in World War II. Of lost love and deep regret . . .
