Baker, Kage. In the Garden of Iden. New York: Harcourt, 1997.

I think Mendoza is even more sarcastic than I am, which is really saying something.

This is the first of the late Kage Baker's novels of The Company, a mysterious 24th-century outfit which discovered backwards-only time travel as well as functional immortality and combined them to create an entire workforce of operatives stranded in time, working to find and preserve anything and everything the 24th century could want from the ravages of time and humanity until they finally age forward into the terrestrial paradise. Mendoza is a young Catholic girl in early 16th century Spain saved from the clutches of the Inquisition by Company operative Joseph; fifteen years later she and Joseph undertake a mission to England in 1553, to find and preserve a certain rare species of holly that grows in aged knight Sir William Iden's garden.
