Description Time With Norma Jeane: Time Travel Novel by Elyse Douglas

A young woman is hurled back to 1954 to spend a week with Marilyn Monroe. Together, they embark on their own personal journeys — one a coming-of-age — the other, Marilyn's journey, a struggle to reconcile with her past and perhaps change the future.

Time With Norma Jeane: Time Travel Novel by Elyse Douglas Guest review by Sage Nor
Darla is not having a very good day. Already she has overheard her father and step-mother fighting about her and, deciding to take her dog for a walk, she accidentally gets lost in the woods. So the whole time travel thing is just the cherry on top. But let me back up and start over at the beginning. 
Darla is the protagonist of 'Time With Norma Jeane: A Time Travel Novel,' by Elyse Douglas. Darla is sixteen years old and recently lost her mother after the woman's battle with mental health. Her father remarried quickly, to a woman that doesn't like her very much and then the whole family moved from the city to the suburbs. When we first meet Darla at the beginning of the novel, her journey is fraught with a little more than your typical teenage angst. Having just lost her mother, she is clearly depressed. The only thing that Darla enjoys is watching movies starring her mother's favorite actress, Marilyn Monroe. So, is it fate, magic or something else that has Darla bumping into Ms. Monroe herself shortly after accidentally traveling back in time to 1954? Obviously, that's up to the reader to find out. 

I absolutely loved this story and found myself enveloped in it right from the start. Elyse Douglas has a writing style that is so transporting and encompassing that you forget you're actually reading a book and think you're watching everything play out right in front of you. Her characters were written so sympathetically, Marilyn in particular, and I found myself loving them immediately. I felt so much for Darla and Marilyn and it broke my heart to read about their obvious sadness. This is the kind of book that makes you wish that the characters were your friends in real life.

Praise Time With Norma Jeane: Time Travel Novel by Elyse Douglas

“A delightful and enthralling read! Elyse Douglas captured magic and put it on the page.”

Praise Lost Mata Hari Ring: A Time Travel Novel by Elyse Douglas

“I am amazed by the research done into her characters, especially since with this book it is a known woman from the past – Mata Hari. From the moment Trace falls back in time, the descriptions of people and towns created a vision in my mind and I could imagine myself there observing the situations. This book captivated me to the end! If you like books that delve into past lives along with time travel, this is a book you should pick up and read!”
-Storeybook Reviews

“I must say that the authors did a fantastic job in writing this book. I do not believe that time travel is possible nor do I believe in reincarnation. But while I was reading this book, I believed it was all possible. Part of me envied Trace Rutland for what she experienced, for the things she got to see. What an exciting thing! Well, except for the being thrown in prison part. Once I was about halfway through the book, putting it down for any length of time proved to be impossible.”- Lisa's Writopia

“This book has it all mystery, romance , history. I really enjoyed it as I didn't really know that much about Mata Hari. I like historical fiction and this book was filled with history. I am not a believer in past lives but I found myself being drawn into the story and holding my breath to see what would happen next. A very well done story. I would recommend it if you like historical fiction.”
