The Magic Moonstone from Carpatina Books
A time travel story that will enchant any reader.

Julia closed her hand around the moonstone. The pendant heated in her palm and through her fingers, bright purple light shone in dazzling beams. The sounds of horses trotting, wagons rolling over cobblestone roads, and the chiming clash of steel on steel echoed throughout the room. She opened her palm and stared at the moonstone, squinting from its light. The gem became like a spectral mirror, wavering like the trembling waters of a crystal pond.
