Review: ‘When The Day Comes’ by Gabrielle Meyer

About The Book
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 Rating: 4 Stars!
I have read a lot of dual time stories and enjoyed them, but never had I read one quite like this one. Libby lives in two worlds simultaneously, one in 1774 and the other in 1914. When she goes to sleep at night, she wakes up in another time, without any time passing. This was really intriguing. Many in her family had been time crossers. She will eventually have to decide which world to stay in because she can’t do this forever. She knows which world she wants to live in. But will it be the world she will choose?

Fascinating premise, this story was and the author does a very nice job with it. I know I was surprised several times. Recommended.

My thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book via Net Galley. The review is my own opinion.

  1. I’ve been enjoying all the dual timeline stories lately, but this time crossing story sounds a bit different. Intriguing concept!
