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?

I loved everything about this book! Seriously--even the parts that were painful  had meaning and were a part of God’s plan within this story! Historical novels are my favorite, and both lives that Libby led were in different historical time-periods, which I loved. The pull of her choices were emotional and every time I put down the book I was wondering what would happened next time I picked it up again. 
I loved Libby’s mother in Colonial Williamsburg and felt the pain of her relationship with her mother in 1914. Her romance with Henry was heartfelt and had me rooting for them the entire book. I honestly had no idea how the book would end. As each chapter came to a close I would come up with different ideas, but none of them as good as what actually happened. 

This book was so thought provoking. Not only were the different parts of history interesting, and Libby's choices meaningful, but the way God’s providence was woven throughout the book was a reminder to me (and to all of us) that His Will will prevail. And He will work out all things for good for all those who love Him. I was touched by this book and can’t wait for the next in the series!
