When the Day Comes Review-Simply Fantastic!



About the Book

 Libby has been given a powerful gift: to live one life in 1774 colonial Williamsburg and the other in 1914 Gilded Age New York City. When she falls asleep in one life, she wakes up in the other without any time passing. She has one conscious mind but two very different lives and bodies.

In colonial Williamsburg, Libby is a public printer for the House of Burgesses and the Royal Governor, trying to provide for her family and support the Patriot cause. The man she loves, Henry Montgomery, has his own secrets. As the revolution draws near, both their lives--and any hope of love--are put in jeopardy.

Libby's life in 1914 New York is filled with wealth, drawing room conversations, and bachelors. But the only work she cares about--women's suffrage--is discouraged, and her mother is intent on marrying her off to an undesirable English marquess. The growing talk of war in Europe further complicates matters and forces her to make sacrifices she never imagined.

On her twenty-first birthday, Libby must choose one path and forfeit the other forever--but how can she possibly choose when she has so much to lose in each life? (Goodreads)


My Thoughts

I am a long time fan of Gabrielle Meyer. This is her first book with Bethany House and is also one of my most anticipated reads. This story did not disappoint! It is simply one of the best books I have read this year! Two time periods of 1774 and 1914 and one woman who gets to experience both worlds. I LOVE time travel stories and this has history and romance AND a very unexpected twist. Does it get any better than that? I think not. While reading, I felt all of the emotions and about mid book I wasn't sure I wanted to know the ending. I was pretty ticked off at a character that I was sure would just ruin the entire story. Much to my delight, this story keeps you guessing and you must finish to the very last page to understand how truly talented Meyer is with her writing. She takes pain and heartache and weaves in hope and a truth that God is the author of our story. 

I adored this book and I can't wait for the next book in the series. 

Five stars!!
