ABOUT THIS BOOK

Stand up for what is right, no matter the cost.

In 1868, Justine Braden’s grandmother charged her with the task of standing up
for what was right—no matter the cost. As a child of ten. Justine didn’t
understand what Granny meant. Now, ten years later, Justine leads a frivolous
life as a New York socialite. She doesn’t have to deal with issues of right and
wrong. Or sacrifice.

Not yet.

For unbeknownst to Justine, generations of the women of her family share a
secret that is revealed to them when they are twenty. They can travel through
time. Such a gift presents them with a great purpose, one that is far beyond their
imagining.

The gift is given, but it can be declined. Or ignored. Or embraced. If a woman is
strong enough, brave enough, and noble enough, the gift will facilitate justice
and change many lives for the better.

Join Justine on her journey from a fickle girl into a woman of great purpose and
potential.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

This is a very different type of book than I usually read, and I liked it very much! I first want to say I don’t believe a person can go back in time like Justine did. But for the purpose of the story, I did get caught up very quickly in thee present day as well and the historical events.

The story has several situations that stood out to me. First, Justine was living the life as the wealthy daughter of a Banker, with all of the perks of society, until both her parents died. After her mom passed away, Justine was forced to go back to the small town of Piedmont for the funeral. After being there for a few days, even her boyfriend could talk her into going back to NY. I appreciate the way Ms. Moser shows that money and society is not what it seams, and the simple life is a much happier life. And the second thing, money and riches sometimes comes from greed and cheating people, and in this story, I’m glad the evil person loses.

Where Time Will Take Me  is a very well written story full of historical events and history. If you enjoy time travel stories, or if you are like me and this is a new type of story for you, I highly recommend this book to you! I’m just know you will be back to read books two and three if this series. And one more thing, be sure to read the Author’s Notes at the end of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the history behind this story.

I received this book from The author to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal  Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.

She knits voraciously, kills all her houseplants, and can wire an electrical fixture without getting shocked. She is a fan of anything antique–humans included.

Why I wrote this book?

I have always been intrigued by time travel (hence my books Time Lottery and Second Time Around.) But for my new book I wanted to try having the “present” be in the past–1878 to be exact.

I have also discovered that the stories that most intrigue me, and the scenes in books and movies that I re-read and re-watch, are the ones where justice is finally victorious. The good guy wins. The bad guy gets what’s coming to him.

And so I wrote Where Time Will Take Me, Book One in the Past Times Series.

Note: I haven’t written Books Two and Three, but I’m writing as fast as I can!

The Journey of Josephine Cain By Nancy Moser…Plus Giveaway!

The Journey of Josephine Cain  

By Nancy Moser

About this Book

A pampered socialite embarks on a journey to the Wild West where her life is changed forever.

A setting populated by hundreds of laborers, outlaws, and Indians is hardly the place for a wealthy general’s daughter from the nation’s capital. But Josephine Cain is determined to visit her father, who supervises the day-to-day work involved in the grandest ambition of post-Civil War America: the building of the Transcontinental Railroad.

Life with the railroad is far from the proper life Josephine is used to, and she faces deadly gunfights, harsh weather, and vigilante uprisings. She is torn between the West and the East; between her privileged upbringing and the challenges of a new frontier; between the pull of the suitable beau her parents approve of and an attraction to a rough but charming Irish railroad worker. But if Josephine is willing, and courageous, she just might find a new life, a unique purpose . . . and true love.

Format: Soft Cover, Trade Paper
Pages: 336

My Thoughts On This Book

This was such a good book to read. Josephine was a young lady that knew that she didn’t want to live in her home with an Aunt and a Mother that was still grieving the loss of their sons who was killed the year before in the war. But how was she going to get out of the house and live her own life. Well, she finally figures out a few ways to vacate the house for and get a taste of a different kind of life.

I love Josephine’s feisty attitude. She is determined to do what she wants, and will stop at nothing. The pampered socialite she was, she was in for a rude awakening visiting her father out west where he worked on the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Life was definitely not pampered in the west, but Josephine didn’t let the difference of lifestyle stop her from helping those in need. I fell in love with Josephine immediately and enjoyed reading about her journey. And the romance was so very heartwarming.

And in addition to the fantastic story, the history surrounding the building of the Transcontinental Railroad was awesome and so informative. This is a subject I haven’t read a lot about, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this bit of history. Nancy Moser did an awesome job of taking readers back to that era of time, and how life was for those working on the famous railroad that connected the east to the west. As you can tell, I love, love this story, and I really think you will too if you check it out!

ABOUT THIS BOOK AND MY THOUGHTS

 

 

A Patchwork Christmas Collection

Three Christmas Stories by Judith Miller, Nancy Moser and Stephanie Grace Whitson

In A Patchwork Christmas Collection, we have three Christmas stories in one beautiful book, from three very well know, gifted authors. And not only do we get three wonderful stories to read, this book gives a few bonuses. After each story, there are mouthwatering recipes that you’ve read about in the stories. And that’s not all. At the end of each story you will also find a craft pattern with instructions to make, an item that has something to do with the story as well.

 

Here are the three stories in this book and a little about them:

 Seems Like Love, By: Judith Miller

Karla Stuke’s faith in men and any hope for marriage and children has been destroyed, that is until the new pharmacist arrives in town.

 

A Patchwork Love, By: Stephanie Grace Whitson

Jane McClure is headed west to marry a prosperous businessman she hardly knows to give her daughter a better life, but is stranded by a snowstorm. Will her chance at helping her daughter slip away?

 

The Bridal Quilt, By: Nancy Moser

Ada, a wealthy ingénue causes grave injury to a poor man who protects a street urchin from a rearing horse. Bringing him home, she discovers he is someone she once considered quite a catch. Can she give up everything to love him?

Join each of these ladies on their journey of romance and love, through difficulties, changing their lives and patching up relationships, as they find their place in life. I thoroughly enjoyed these historical stories, all set in the late 1800’s. All three authors created realistic characters and a plot that develops well throughout the story, very well keeping my attention. I love Christmas stories, and will probably be reading these stories again during the Holiday Season.

And not only the stories drew me to this book, the beauty of it is amazing. The cover is beautiful and festive and I love the snow covered inside of the front and back covers. And I especially like the ragged edges of the pages, making this book a wonderful gift for the special reader in your life. You can’t go wrong with this book, so grab a copy to read and enjoy, and pass it on to someone for a special gift.

Thanks to Barbour Books for providing a copy of this book for me to read and review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

MY REVIEW

Lucy Scarpelli and her family lives in NY during America’s Gilded Age. Their family lived in a poverty section of NY and struggled to survive. That is until one day Lucy run into Mr. Standish, a wealthy businessman that owns a dress shop. Mr. Standish not only hires Lucy and her sister Sofia to help sew dresses for the wealthy he hires their mom to make hats to match the dresses. He also offers to rent the mom and 2 siblings an apartment over the dress shop. This is the beginning of a new life for the Scarpelli family. Lucy becomes friends with Rowena, a crippled young lady and the daughter of a wealthy couple. Join Lucy and the Scarpelli family on an unbelievable journey to a life they never thought possible.

First of all, the beauty of the cover of this book captures your interest, making you want to see the story inside. The characters the author created were unique to the story, and blended so well it makes you feel as though you are living the story with them. The independence and determination of Lucy makes you want to strive to be like her. The Christian content was strong, which I enjoyed because it teaches us that we need to trust God with every detail of our lives and believe that he knows best.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes historical and romance Christian fiction. This is a wonderful summer read, a nice get-away from daily struggles for a while.

I was provided a copy of this book by Bethany House publishers. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
