In This Moment (Timeless, #2) by Gabrielle Meyer

In This Moment (Timeless, #2)

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?


Author Gabrielle Meyer introduced readers to time travel and time crossing in When the Day Comes, and I was awed by her ability to show Libby living two different lives, by going to sleep in one time period and waking up in another. Amazing, right? Now, Meyer has taken it a step further by having Libby's daughter Maggie living three, YES, three separate lives in three different times: 1861, 1941, and 2001. Can you imagine the research required to accurately portray events relating to the Civil War, WWII, and 9-11?

In This Moment is a stunning tale of history, romance, and the reminder that sacrifices are often necessary. Maggie may be blessed to have three different families and experience three different lives, but she also realizes that she will have to decide which one she will keep. What life will she choose on her 21st birthday? Which families will she say goodbye to? I admit that I was guessing until the very end!

This is a mesmerizing, intriguing, and unforgettable novel that you don't want to miss. I can't wait to read the third book of this Timeless series!
