When the Day Comes by Gabrielle Meyer

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 without any time passing. On her twenty-first birthday, Libby must choose one path and forfeit the other–but how can she possibly decide when she has so much to lose?

My review

I told myself that I needed to savor this book and not read it in one day. That didn’t happen. I started and finished When the Day Comes in one day. I could not put it down and had to find out what happened. I absolutely loved this unique approach to a story. You have one woman but two completely different lives. It would be so hard to bounce back and forth between the revolutionary war and the Gilded age. It was neat to read about these two different time periods. Written in first person, the reader really gets to know Libby. She was smart and interesting and had much to offer the world. She had a difficult decision to make and I felt like I was right there witnessing her struggle to decide.
This was a story that captured my imagination and my heart and I can’t stop talking about it!

I highly recommend this book to family and friends.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. I also purchased a copy for myself. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
