WHEN THE DAY COMES by Gabrielle Meyer, Reviewed by Kim

When the Day Comes by Gabrielle Meyer has such a different premise, which the cover shows perfectly, that I knew I had to read it. I read and love split time novels, but one where our main character falls asleep in one life and wakes up in another, and not only that, but she has to choose, at age 21, which life to stay in and which to permanently leave? Sign me up!

There’s not a whole lot I can say about the actual stories in this wonderful novel because of spoilers, but what I will say is that I loved Libby. She has a deep faith, is strong, kind, and I really loved her story and how it ended so perfectly. I was fully immersed in her story from the very beginning to the last page.

This is one of the most unique and creative stories I have ever read and I’m hoping this is going to be a series. Either way, I can’t wait to see what Gabrielle Meyer brings us next. In the meantime, I’m off to look at her backlist!
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own. The faith thread is medium. 5 stars.





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?
