Debra Shiveley Welch's Novel Nominated for Global eBook Award
by BWW News Desk - Feb 2, 2017

In a review for Circle of Time, the newest release by Debra Shiveley Welch, an award winning author, Readers' Favorite reviewer Lex Allen states, 'Five stars are not enough for Debra Shiveley Welch's Circle of Time. An accident in the Bermuda Triangle throws Bridget (Bridge) Littleton through time. She awakens in the home of the Lyttleton family, her own ancestors, in the year 1532 near Bristol, England. Thus begins a fascinating alternative history story of love, mystery, intrigue, life and death in the court of King Henry VIII. Ms. Shiveley Welch deftly interweaves a handful of themes, from the 'butterfly paradox effect' of time travel to the life and loves of Henry, Anne Boleyn and Bridge to present an addictive read of epic proportions.
