Book Feature: Repeating History A Time in Yellowstone Novel by M.M. Justus

If you like time travel and history, check out Repeating History. It sounds really good!

Blurb: 

What if people and places are connected in ways we’re not aware of?
Could those connections change the future? Could time be a Möbius strip, never ending, always circling back?  What if someone, in exactly the right –
or wrong – place at exactly the right – or wrong – time, could be transported into a past that wasn’t at all  what he expected, only to have to create his own future?  And how would that affect the people around him, and those people he loves in both times?

In 1959, 20-year-old college dropout Chuck McManis is strolling the geyser boardwalks in Yellowstone National Park when an earthquake plunges him more than eighty years back in time, into the middle of an Indian war. And into his own past – to become the great-grandfather he’d idolized since he was a boy.

The problem was, nobody’d ever told him every single story about his hero
was a lie. That he’d need instructions for sheer survival. Or lessons in
escaping from Indians. He does know he can’t abandon Eliza Byrne, the woman who teaches him both. By the time they struggle back to civilization, 1870s style, Chuck has discovered courage and competence he never knew he
possessed. Then comes the risk, and the opportunity, to fulfill the legacy
he’d left for himself the last time around, and he must face decisions he
never wanted to make, that could cause him to lose not only his own life and
that of the woman he loves, but to destroy his own future before it ever had
a chance to be.

Author Bio:

M.M. Justus's first visit to Yellowstone National Park was at age four,
where it snowed on her on the Fourth of July. She spent most of her
childhood summers in the back seat of a car, traveling with her parents to
almost every national park west of the Mississippi and a great many places
in between.

She has a bachelor’s degree in British and American literature and history,
a master’s degree in library science, and a certificate in museum studies.
In her non-writing life she is an independent museum curator and exhibit
designer.  She lives on the rainy side of the Cascade mountains within easy
reach of her other favorite national park, Mt. Rainier.
