In This Moment by Gabrielle Meyer // Review

About the Book:
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:

 Immersive and thought provoking, this riveting tale of a woman living in three separate timelines is a captivatingly compelling read, that had me gripping the pages until the very end. 

A stunning follow up to When the Day Comes, it can easily be read as a standalone. I loved this book so much, that I kind of read it more slowly than usual because I just didn't want it to be over too soon, as it eventually was. Maggie is a hardworking young woman determined to make the most of her time in each era that she has been given, using her gifts to help others. I liked her respect for her gift, as well as her devotion to her family in each era, as well as the friends and family that knowing her secret support her every step of the way. 

I loved how the author brought each of the time periods to life, each compelling in their own way I would be hard pressed to choose a favorite. I also liked how this book explores questions of trusting God with the future, as well as our free will, and using our gifts. The author did an amazing job handling the romances in each timeline, each man was intriguing in a different way, and spoiler--I love how it turned out!

Overall, easily one of my favorite reads this year, I don't think I can do this amazing book justice as I loved it so much cover to cover, I wouldn't change a thing and I can't wait to read the next book in the series, next year cannot come soon enough! Compelling storytelling, weaving together 3 distinctive time periods into a compelling novel of faith, love, and courage, HIGHLY recommend!
