[Blog Tour] Review: Dancing In The Athenian Rain by Katie Hamstead


Dancing In The Athenian Rain by Katie Hamstead
Publication date: September 9th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Time-Travel

When Donna is sent back in time to Classical Athens, she’s furious at Dr. Stephens for sending her against her wishes. Then a Greek soldier purchases her to be his wife.
She’s forced to learn a new language and culture and faces her fears of never returning to her own time. The society hates her, especially because they think she’s an Amazon, which forces her to confront her issues—being compared to her genius brother, borderline abusive friends, and a cheating boyfriend.
But her husband, Peleus, is kind and patient. He counters all the negative voices from her past, but those voices drive a wedge between them. She must let go of her fears, her inhibitions, and insecurities, and admit her feelings, or she could lose him and the life they’ve built.


This was actually a very interesting read of the author. I loved a good time travel romance and this was a bit different from other books of this genre. This was the second book I've read about time travel that's a world of its own but the heroine from both stories were both different and at the same time sort of similar.

I can totally relate to how Donna feels because that's how I felt about myself but I'm getting to where Donna is at now since she changed so much throughout the whole story. That was my favorite part of the story wherein Donna changed for the better. I won't get into details with Peleus and Donna's relationship but it was rocky at start because of some miscommunication and the opinion of others that gets in their road to happiness. The relationship between Peleus and Donna started slow because like I mentioned it was rocky at first, it took a while for them to understand one another and while the suspense was killing me, it was worth the wait especially when they admitted their feelings to one another.

On another note, I do like the teacher of Donna. It's because of him that Donna found the place where she truly belong and his cool, eccentric, and a genius. Donna also has closer relationship to him than her own family.  I also disliked her bestfriend and boyfriend but everything turned out better for the end.

I received an arc for a blog tour.

Born and raised in Australia, Katie’s early years of day dreaming in the “bush”, and having her father tell her wild bedtime stories, inspired her passion for writing.

After graduating High School, she became a foreign exchange student where she met a young man who several years later she married. Now she lives in Arizona with her husband, daughter and their dog.

She has a diploma in travel and tourism which helps inspire her writing.

When her debut novel, Kiya: Hope of the Pharaoh, climbed into bestselling status, she believed she was onto something, and now has a slew of novels now available, and is published through Curiosity Quills Press, Soul Mate Publishing, and REUTS Publishing.

Katie loves to out sing her friends and family, play sports, and be a good wife and mother. She now works as an Acquisitions Editor to help support her family. She loves to write, and takes the few spare moments in her day to work on her novels.
