About the Book
Maggie inherited a special gift from her parents that allows her to live three different timelines simultaneously, where she wakes up in 1861, 1941, and 2001 one day after the next. She has to decide on her upcoming twenty-first birthday in which timeline she will forever live, therefore forfeiting the other two lives. But there is something that she is drawn to in each timeline and she is terrified to have to make this decision. She is on the brink of a historic event in each life and she is passionate about helping people medically in each timeline. She tries to resist romance, as she knows it will only make the decision even harder, but her heart does not always listen to logic, further complicating her rapidly approaching choice.
This series has been such a unique set of novels! I have never read a story quite like these; not quite split-time, but rather time traveling of sorts. It was easy to like Maggie in this story, as she is compassionate, intelligent, and hard working in each of her three lives. I did not envy the choice she had to make! There were twists in the story that made it difficult for me to predict what life Maggie was going to pick in the end. My one critique, as someone who works in medicine, is that the medical facts in the novel weren’t always accurate, which was more of a personal irritation than something that other readers will find bothersome. I really liked the history, especially in the 1861 timeline. The romance is well written, and is in fact a driving force for Maggie’s decision. I thought the story flowed well and I found myself captivated by each timeline on multiple occasions. The thread of faith is light in this story but well integrated. I overall enjoyed the book and am excited for book three, especially with the little twist in the epilogue!
