Can love offer a new future…in the past?

A mysterious gown, unexpected courage, and a love that transcends time.


Nursing student Lena Lowery faces a grim diagnosis and a dangerous surgery. On the cusp of the life-changing procedure, Lena stays at the Rosswood Plantation Bed and Breakfast for one last weekend with her mother. There in an antique armoire, Lena discovers a Civil War-era gown that holds an unimaginable cure…a trip back in time to when the house served as a hospital.

Confederate Sergeant Caleb Dockery lost his brother, his eye, and nearly his life. Stuck in a makeshift infirmary, he’s counting the days until he can return to duty…and seek revenge. When a stranger appears, he suspects she’s a spy. If he can’t return to duty and find the revenge he craves for his brother’s death, he can serve his country by stopping this traitor. But her nursing skills are saving lives, and her courage and independence stirs his heart. When Lena’s safety is threatened, Caleb must strain the loyalties that bind him or risk losing her forever.

Caught between a future that holds no promises and a past that could offer new life, Lena must face an extraordinary decision. Should she return to her own time where her days are numbered? Or can she and Caleb find a love that stretches across time?

If you like historical romance with a twist, strong female characters, and heroes that transcend eras, you’ll love this journey through time that tests the limits of love.

*Her Place in Time is set in the house from The Liberator Series, just prior to the start of Leveraging Lincoln. Fans of the series will enjoy seeing Annabelle and Peggy in this new novella.

My Thoughts:

If you collect book boyfriends (I’m looking at you Carrie  Booth Schmidt), get your fainting couch ready to swoon over Sergeant Caleb Dockery! “His hands were calloused. He stood when she entered a room. He treated her like something she’d never really thought about wanting to be treated like. A lady. And the way he kissed her…”

This exciting story will take you on a journey unlike any other you’ve experienced before! A dashing hero, that will have you reaching for your fan, and a heroine that I’m sure we can all identify with.

Lena struggles with feeling like she is enough. She has faced many challenges, but nothing like the challenge facing her now with her diagnosis. Now she’s discovered a past and glimpses a possibility at a future she didn’t think was possible. Will she leave behind all she knows?

Come along for a delightful journey through time. Be sure to bring your imagination and allow yourself to just enjoy the ride.  If you are looking for a fun story that will allow you to escape the daily stress, this is a story you won’t want to pass up!  I give this story 4.5 stars and would encourage you to grab a copy to enjoy for yourself.
