When the Day Comes by Gabrielle Meyer


 

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 Review


 
First I loved the way the cover of this book drew me in! Then I opened the book, and yes, this is a Christian read, and the author did a tremendous job of pulling me into this story.

Would you change history? For those you love? So many choices here, and we walk in Libby's shoes, at first not knowing where she will end up. No matter your decision, there are losses!

This read is full of surprises, most I never saw coming, but keep reading there are so many gifts to unwrap as the pages are turned!

Be sure to read the epilogue and the author's notes!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
