When the Day Comes | Book Review


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?

“How will she choose, knowing all she must sacrifice?” In When the Day Comes, published by Bethany House Publishers, Libby lives two lives—one in 1774 Colonial Williamsburg and another in 1914 Gilded Age New York City—but upon her twenty-first birthday, she must pick only one life to continue living. Time travel (in any form) is something I love to find in books, so of course, I enjoyed the unique experience of Libby’s story. Gabrielle Meyer brings her two historical settings to life beautifully on the page, and I was enthralled going back and forth (and through twists and turns) with Libby. It all definitely left me eager to see where the Timeless series will go next.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
