In This Moment Review-A Must Read!




About the Book

 Maggie inherited a gift from her time-crossing parents that allows her to live three separate lives in 1861, 1941, and 2001. Each night she goes to sleep in one time period and wakes up in another. Until, that is, she turns twenty-one, when she will have to forfeit two of those lives--and everyone she knows in them--forever.

In 1861, Maggie is the daughter of an influential senator at the outbreak of the Civil War, navigating a capital full of Southern spies and wounded soldiers. In 1941, she is a Navy nurse, grappling with her knowledge of the future when she's asked to join a hospital ship being sent to Pearl Harbor. And in 2001, she's a brilliant young medical student, fulfilling her dream of becoming a surgeon, yet unable to use her modern skills in her other paths.

While Maggie has sworn off romance until she makes her final choice, an intriguing man tugs at her heart in each era. The mysterious British gentleman. The prickly, demanding doctor. The charming young congressman. She's drawn to each man in different ways, only complicating the impossible decision she must make, which looms ever closer.

With so much on the line, how can Maggie choose just one life to keep and the rest to lose? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

Oh my goodness this book! I knew this story would be amazing but I just had no idea what Gabrielle Meyer had come up with! I loved everything about this story. I loved the three timelines, they were all written so well it was easy to go back and forth. I loved characters from each timeline and the intense patience it took to wait until the very end to find out what Maggie decides. The history is completely fascinating and I learned so much even though it was all about well known historical events. The author has such a way of making history come alive. The very best part of this story is how encouraged Maggie is by knowing that God truly is in control. Her anxiety and desire to make big decisions and the frustration with her different lives hit so very close to home. The ending chapters completely blew me away and right when I thought it couldn't get any better---it did. There is hope in the waiting and the pain. Praise the Lord! 

You don't have to read the first book in the series to enjoy this one, but as always I do recommend that you read both! Book three can't come soon enough! 

Five Stars!
