In This Moment by Gabrielle Meyer

Maggie inherited a gift from her time-crossing parents that allows her to live three separate lives in 1861, 1941, and 2001. Each night she goes to sleep in one time period and wakes up in another. Until, that is, she turns twenty-one, when she will have to forfeit two of those lives–and everyone she knows in them–forever.

In 1861, Maggie is the daughter of an influential senator at the outbreak of the Civil War, navigating a capital full of Southern spies and wounded soldiers. In 1941, she is a Navy nurse, grappling with her knowledge of the future when she’s asked to join a hospital ship being sent to Pearl Harbor. And in 2001, she’s a brilliant young medical student, fulfilling her dream of becoming a surgeon, yet unable to use her modern skills in her other paths.

While Maggie has sworn off romance until she makes her final choice, an intriguing man tugs at her heart in each era. The mysterious British gentleman. The prickly, demanding doctor. The charming young congressman. She’s drawn to each man in different ways, only complicating the impossible decision she must make, which looms ever closer.

With so much on the line, how can Maggie choose just one life to keep and the rest to lose?

My Review:

I absolutely loved this book. It was compelling, deep and thoughtprovoking. I told myself I would savor this book but I just couldn’t stop reading. It was captivating. I read it before work, on every break and after work. Whenever I got back from break which often was at a critical part in the story, I would fill my coworkers in with what was happening. It felt real. It lead to some fun conversations.
Maggie was such an interesting character. She had a lot of depth to her. I loved how she developed throughout the story. I like that she is in the medical field in some regard in each time. I would want to be friends with her.
But let me tell ya, the agony of trying to determine the path was felt deeply and I was completely invested in her life. Who will she choose? What path will she take? Why did that have to happen?
Although we don’t have to decide what year to live in, the purpose and what the Lord is calling you to do is something each person must decide. I’ve been thinking about the theme of this book. The thing that has stuck out to me is that we are absolutely not guarenteed tomorrow. That In this Moment we need to remember our life is a gift and live as if it is our last day.

Each time period was so fascinating. I didn’t feel like any time period was less interesting then the other. I think knowing the history added to the anticipation of what was going to happen.
I will be reading this book again.

I highly recommend this story to my 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.

To celebrate the release of In This Moment, the author is giving away a prize package from the Pearl Harbor Memorial!
