The whole novel has a cinematic feel. Things in the thoroughly fleshed-out, bucolic setting of Gettysburg quickly grow stranger and stranger, giving way to a stunning and sudden journey through time. I enjoyed the many careful and clever details that made Civil War Era Pennsylvania come to life and the many twists and turns the rapid plot took.
Once it begins, it does not let up.

If you like time travel and the American Civil War, you will love “The Will of Time: 2nd Edition” by J.B. Pierce. You can tell the author did her research to combine facts and fiction into a seamless story. The battle at Gettysburg never seemed so real. I was left wondering where history ended and fiction began. Also, you might want to learn about the history and dates of events in your area, just in case you get sucked back in time. Hey, you never know.

Pierce’s break-out novel is an absolute winner! She cleverly moves the reader back and forth through time with the ease of a time machine, and the two time frames are seamlessly interwoven. I especially like the accuracy and vividness with which she describes the battle of Gettysburg. If you’re intrigued by the Civil War, you’ll love this book!
J.B. Pierce grew up in McKeesport, a small mill town 20 miles outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. When she wasn’t dancing or singing, she was orchestrating cheesy haunted houses (that were never really scary) or setting up a backyard carnival with Bingo and Pick a Duck (yes, everyone was a winner). Entertaining was in her blood. She was always conjuring up something (even one-act plays), ready for the smallest of spectators – me, myself, and my make-believe audiences.
As she grew older, J.B. graduated from California University (of PA) with a bachelor’s in Elementary Education and continued her academic career by receiving her master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Gannon University. Though the grass and sheets disappeared over time, she found a new stage and audience: eager and energetic 5th graders. With each reading and grammar lesson and through every moment of our American history she has shared, a new show emerged, and her imagination was sparked back to life – The Will of Time.
