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?
Time travel books are often hard to get right. I love that this book did it so well. Libby is such a compassionate and caring woman. I thoroughly enjoyed reading her journey as she travels between times. I thought the mechanic of how she traveled was unique and brought the story to life. Imagine changing lives every night. She takes each challenge in stride, and her ability to overcome challenges made When the Day Comes a delightful read. I kept trying to pick a favorite time period, but Libby made them both interesting, and I couldn’t decide where I hoped she ended up. This was a great tale of family and sacrifice that blends time travel and romance into a fantastic blend. I received a copy of this book through JustReads.
