I’m thrilled to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for fantastic historical time slip novel Endless Skies by Jane Cable. Thank you to Sapere Books and Rachel Gilbey for giving me the opportunity to read and review this wonderful book.
About the book:
As archaeologist Rachel excavates a World War Two airfield, could a love story from the past hold a lesson for her as well?
After yet another disastrous love affair Rachel has been forced to leave her long-term position for a temporary role as an Archaeology Lecturer at Lincoln University. Rachel has sworn off men and is determined to spend her time away clearing her head and sorting her life out. But when one of her students begins flirting with her, it seems she could be about to make the same mistakes again…
She distracts herself by taking on some freelance work for local property developer, Jonathan Daubney. He introduces her to an old Second World War RAF base. And from her very first visit something about it gives Rachel chills…
As Rachel makes new friends and delves into local history, she is also forced to confront her own troubled past. Could a wartime love story have any bearing on her own situation? Could this time be different?

About the author:
I write romance with a twist, that extra something to keep readers guessing right to the end. While my books are character driven my inspiration is always a British setting; so far a village in Yorkshire (The Cheesemaker’s House), a Hampshire wood (The Faerie Tree), gorgeous Studland Bay in Dorset (Another You) and rural Lincolnshire (Endless Skies).
I was born and raised in Cardiff but spent most of my adult life living near Chichester before my husband and I upped sticks and moved to Cornwall three years ago.
I published my first two novels independently and have now been signed by Sapere Books. I am an active member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association and contributing editor to Frost online magazine.
I was captivated by this beautifully written and haunting story from the outset. Both present day and WW2 Lincolnshire are brought vividly to life as Jane Cable weaves an atmospheric, character driven tale of romance and suspense that draws you in from the very first page.
In the present day, Rachel has just come out of a disastrous love affair that has forced her to leave her long term job for a temporary one as an Archaeology Lecturer at Lincoln University. It is obvious from early on in the novel that there is something in Rachel’s past that leads her to make poor choices when it comes to her personal relationships. What that is becomes more apparent as the story continues, with the lessons from the past playing a big part in Rachel’s life in the present.
Determined not to make the same mistakes all over again, she distracts herself by taking on some freelance work for a local property developer. This work involves spending time at an old airbase, a place that has a huge effect on Rachel from her very first visit. As she makes new friends and discovers more and more about what happened there during the Second World War, the echoes of the past begin to intertwine with the present day. Can the poignant love story of a WW2 pilot help Rachel put the ghosts of her troubled past to rest?
Endless Skies is a hauntingly beautiful and atmospheric read that seamlessly intertwines the stories of the past and the present. With a wonderful and diverse cast of characters, a story rich in history and a sprinkle of the supernatural, Jane Cable has written a fantastic historical time slip novel that is as moving as it is thrilling.
Endless Skies by Jane Cable is available to purchase now.
