FOR A LIFETIME by Gabrielle Meyer, Reviewed by Kim

I absolutely love the Timeless series by Gabrielle Meyer! Each and every story is so innovative and so well written. The storylines are always immersive with so many wonderful characters. Whenever I think I know what is going to happen, Ms. Meyer throws me for a loop and does what I totally did not expect or even think of as a possibility! While For a Lifetime is book #3, it can easily be read as a standalone as can all of the previous books in this series.

Grace and Hope are identical twins with polar opposite personalities. I really loved their relationship with each other and how they depended so much on each other because of their time-crossing. In one of their timelines, 1692, they live and work in their father’s tavern during the witch trials in Salem, MA. This storyline was so interesting, yet sad and dark. I wanted them out of there so bad! In their other timeline, 1912, they both have careers that they love and both are close to their parents. I want to say so much more, but basically everything would be a spoiler! So, I will just say that I absolutely loved this story, I was shocked more times than I can say, I cried more times than once, and I was completely satisfied when the story wrapped up! It has been days since I finished this one and it’s still on my mind.

I cannot wait for the next book in this series! I highly recommend each and every story. What amazes me about all of the stories in this series is that there is a time in each when I think that there is no way Ms. Meyer can pull this off so that I am happy with the ending, but each and every time she manages to do it! That takes a talented writer!
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. I also purchased a copy. All opinions are my own. The faith thread is light. 5 stars!! 


BackCover Blurb:
Grace and Hope are identical twin sisters born with the ability to time-cross together between 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, and 1912 New York City. As their twenty-fifth birthday approaches, they will have to choose one life to keep and one to leave behind forever--no matter the cost.

In 1692, they live and work in their father's tavern, where they must watch helplessly as the witch trials unfold in their village, threatening everyone. With the help of a handsome childhood friend, they search for the truth behind their mother's mysterious death, risking everything to expose a secret that could save their lives--or be their undoing.

In 1912, Hope dreams of becoming one of the first female pilots in America, and Grace works as an investigative journalist, uncovering corruption and injustice. After their parents' orphanage is threatened by an adversary, they enter a contest to complete a perilous cross-country flight under the guidance of a daring French aviator.

The sisters have already decided which timeline they will choose, but an unthinkable tragedy complicates the future they planned for themselves. As their birthday looms, how will they determine the lives--and loves--that are best for both of them?
