Publisher's Summary

In August 1969, medical student Lizzie Baker sets off on a trip to Woodstock with her boyfriend and two other couples. When their van breaks down outside of Morganton, North Carolina, the group decides to hike up nearby Brown Mountain while they wait for the repairs to be finished.
Lizzie's interest in nature prompts her to go on a walk by herself, hoping to get a glimpse of the legendary Brown Mountain Lights. When she unexpectedly encounters one, she naively reaches out to touch it and is thrown back in time to a place and lifestyle she comes to hate - the Antebellum South.
Lizzie is taken in by three sisters who are healers. With them, she is able to put her knowledge as a medical student to good use. She finds a trusted friend in Abbie, the youngest sister, and through a budding romance with the son of a plantation owner is drawn into the dangerous world of the Underground Railroad.
With a bloody and violent war looming on the horizon, at a time when women are looked upon as less than equal, Lizzie struggles to accept the differences that surround her every day in this new and challenging world. Wanting nothing more than to return home, she and Abbie continually search for the light Lizzie travelled through, hoping it will take her back to her time.
But if she finds it, will she decide to stay or go?

Such a unique time travel book!

It took me a while to get into this book! The lights were a bit mystical and since I wasn't familiar with the author I wasn't sure if it would turn out to be a book I would enjoy or a book that was filled with Unorthodox spiritual themes. I'm glad I got back to it! It was a good book that finally pulled me in. It seemed to hop around a bit in topic but turns out it's just book one so hopefully there will be some closure in book two!

Reagan did a wonderful job narrating! Her soft spoken Southern accent was perfect for the Brown Mountains. She did several different characters from an old slave man to a compassionate slave owners son, then a sweet old Indian woman to a young grumpy Constable. The main characters were four young women and their voices were different enough to make conversations easy to figure out who was talking! She even hummed a few notes! Truly a superb performance!

I'm looking forward to book 2 so I can figure out what happened next!!

Excellent Story

I normally don't like stories told in first person, especially when the main character is female. Therefore, I had a little trouble staying interested at first. However, due to the great story & awesome narration, I soon found myself hanging on every word. It probably also helped that while I love learning history, I have never had any patience with boring school books & have always preferred to learn history by reading novels. I can't wait for the sequel!!!
