In This Moment By Gabrielle Meyer

In This Moment
by Gabrielle Meyer
Publisher: Bethany House
Series: Timeless
ISBN: 9780764239755

I was such a huge of When the Day Comes by Gabrielle, when I found out book two was coming out, I absolutely HAD to be on the launch team for In This Moment! Be sure to check out my review for the first book in the series. She sent me her book for review.


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 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 a 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 joins a hospital ship going to Pearl Harbor. And in 2001, she's a brilliant young medical student, fulfilling her dream of becoming a surgeon.

While Maggie has sworn off romance until she makes her final choice, an intriguing man tugs at her heart in each era, 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:

If you were blown away by book one, sit down and buckle up because you're in for a ride! I think every reader of In This Moment is going to try and figure out what's going to happen. It's an exercise in futility. hahaha I started writing my theories on sticky notes because it was constantly changing with all of the clues the author gives!

We meet Margaret, Maggie, and Meg: one person, three different timelines. Those timelines contain so much history! The research that the author did must have been fascinating! I thoroughly loved Maggie in every timeline. There was one I was initially more fond of, then my allegiance switched at a certain point to another timeline. Annnnd there was one I wasn't so fond of. I'll just leave it at that. You won't get a peep out of me which ones they were. HA!

It's so hard to give a review about this story because there's so much that can be given away. We can't talk about the men (yes, plural) in each of her times. I liked one, then REALLY liked one, and one I never really warmed up to.

Maggie is a healer at heart. So, in every time period she lives as a health care provider in some capacity. This thread certainly plays a part in how she works on deciding which time she wants to live in forever. I love that those who know about her "gift" speak goodness to her so that she chooses the time that's not only best for her, but God's best for her.

The author makes a compelling reason in each of her times that will make the reader want to stay in a specific one. Whether it's her wonderful family, friends, or one of the men, it was truly impossible to know what she was going to choose. The sweetness of some of the moments with her family had me reaching for a tissue.

Seriously, there's just so much I want share and discuss, but mum's the word! Just know that you probably won't be able to guess the ending until you are either almost there or are there. Your heart will be pulled in numerous directions and you'll love almost every minute of it! Be prepared for some serious shockers, too! I have to say, in the end, I was completely and utterly satisfied.

How the author's going to do it again is beyond me, but I'm 100% ready for whatever she brings us!
