Sam Carroll is living life in the fast lane--sleek cars, nice clothes, and lovely ladies have replaced the gospel values he grew up with, and he's going nowhere fast. But when a serious car accident brings his fun to a screeching halt, Sam is left comatose, aware only of his older brother reading aloud from the hundred-year-old journal of an LDS bishop, Moroni Chadester. As Sam drifts in and out of consciousness, the words begin to take root in his mind . . .
Alpine, Utah, 1915
Standing on a dusty mountain road, Sam is bewildered. The cars are different. The clothes are different. Where and when is he? The answer comes from an impossible source: Bishop Moroni Chadester. Hurtled back in time by forces he can't understand, Sam finds his memories of modern existence quickly fading as he becomes immersed in a new life and a romance with the town beauty, Laney Williams. But as the pair becomes entangled in a murder mystery, the thrill of courtship is replaced by terror as fate conspires to bring the couple into the path of a killer. Little do they realize that the clock is ticking on more than their lives Sam can't stay in the past forever. As danger looms ever closer, Sam must fight to save Laney. But can their love stand the test of time?
This book is and LDS historical time travel novel. I love how so many genres get mashed together these days. It's like anything goes.
Sam gets in a car accident and is comatose. His brother reads to him from a journal from long ago. Sam finds himself living in the world from the journal as his own world begins to fade. We experience the world of 1915 through Sam's eyes.
I really enjoyed the characters in this book and I could easily picture the story playing out in my mind like a movie. The book moved along slowly and even though this book is on the shorter side, it took me awhile to get through it. It didn't grip and hold my attention like I would've liked. But, like I said, there were many enjoyable parts to this book. The ending was the best bit for me.
This is an LDS fiction book so religion and religious elements play a large role in the plot and with the characters. The book is gentle in nature and clean. It has a sweet romance.
