About:

How will she choose, knowing all she must sacrifice?

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. While she’s the same person at her core in both times, she’s leading two vastly different lives.

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 English marquess. The growing talk of war in Europe only complicates matters.

But Libby knows she’s not destined to live two lives forever. On her twenty-first birthday, she must choose one path and forfeit the other–but how can she choose when she has so much to lose in each life?

My thoughts:

Wow. I wasn’t sure what to expect a new author and a new concept with this time travel, that’s not really time travel. This book is very different from other duel time or time travel books I have read. I listened to an interview with this author before I read the book which made me even more excited to read this book.

I LOVED it. I can’t wait to read what is next in this series. It was so well done, just an interesting story, engaging characters. The ending was so satisfying in a way I never saw coming until the last few pages. I really can’t say enough.

This is a book I highly recommend you give a try, I don’t think you will be disappointed.
