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?

My Thoughts 

How in the world can an author keep up with so many intricate details in a story? I have no idea but thank goodness that Gabrielle Meyer can because once again she wrote another book that blew me away!! If you haven’t picked up the first book on this series DO NOT hesitate!! You do not want to miss out on how it all began… let’s dig into this one as much as we can without giving too much away…

In this book we travel to three different timelines with Margaret/Meg/Maggie. Same person, three different timelines that were completely full of history. Each timeline gave you a better sense on who she was as a person and the struggles that she had about the possibility of leaving each of those timelines. Maggie is a healer at heart. It is truly the gift God has placed upon her life and in all three timelines we see this.

As you read you will definitely have opinions about each timeline! I was delighted that she picked the timeline I was rooting for! I can’t divulge any more because I don’t want to give the book away but you have to read it before the next one comes out!

I received this book for review. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
