For a Lifetime by Gabrielle Meyer: Book Review

  *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.



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?

For a Lifetime is the third book in the Timeless series. While there are some brief references to characters from the previous books in the series, I do believe this could be enjoyed without having read those previous books too. 

This book was quite unique compared to the series as it features not one, but two time-crossers--- twin sisters, Hope and Grace, who time-cross together between their lives 1692 Salem and 1912 New York. Having these two sisters traveling together definitely added a really unique element to the story and the decisions that had to be made. It was beautiful and heartbreaking all the same time. While I have enjoyed every book in this series so far, I think all those emotions really made this one stand out to me and is certainly my new favorite of them. 

The Salem witch trials is a point in history that I have always found extremely fascinating, so I'm sure that helped with my love of this story... though admittedly, it's not an easy time to read about! I found the 1912 timeline just as intriguing. Both stories kept me guessing in the best way possible. The love stories were beautifully done, and I couldn't help but love them both. Beyond that though, I really appreciated the messages of faith and reminder of God's plans.
