Libby has been given a powerful gift: to live one life in 1774 Colonial Williamsburg and the other in 1914 Gilded Age New York City. When she falls asleep in one life, she wakes up in the other without any time passing. On her twenty-first birthday, Libby must choose one path and forfeit the other--but how can she possibly decide when she has so much to lose?

Excerpt

One
Williamsburg, Virginia
May 5, 1774

Discussion Questions

1. When the Day Comes is set in two very different eras, Colonial America in 1774 and Gilded Age New York and England in 1914. If you had to pick one of these eras to live in, which would it be and why?
2. If you were given the gift of living in two time periods, no matter the time or place, which two would you choose? Would you choose historical eras or the future?
3. Was there anything that surprised you about the history of Colonial America or the Gilded Age?
4. Libby and her mother are the first female public printers in Virginia. Many women worked and owned business in the Colonial Era, such as printers, dressmakers, wigmakers, tavern keepers, apothecaries, blacksmiths, and midwives. If you lived in Colonial America, which job would you have tried?
5. Libby’s mother tells her that time-crossing is a gift, but Libby sees it as a burden. What do you think?
6. One of the struggles Libby endures is whether or not she wants to have children, because she’s not sure if she wants to pass her time-crossing gift to the next generation. What would you choose?
