As I Close My Eyes
Breaking Fate Collection Book 1

Genre: historical YA with a time travel twist

Book Description:

You know you are alive, but what if you are dead?

Danielle Grayson is a beautiful, intelligent young woman in present-day Georgia, but when she closes her eyes, she becomes someone else in a different time, one hundred years earlier in fact.
Danielle's other life is as entrancing and romantic as her current one, and the contrast between the lifestyles is intriguing and enlightening (they didn't have iPods in 19th century USA, apparently), but what starts out as being dreamlike soon becomes real and strangely familiar.
Worse, whatever happens to her as Danielle seems to change the past, if it is a true past.
And when she finds she is not alone in being able to flip between the two worlds, life, love and death become really disturbing.

Excerpt As I Wake

Something is digging into my spine. A pebble? No. A piece of glass? Maybe, but it’s round and dull. And I’m wet. Just underneath my head, although I can feel water slowly making its way down my neck and into my back, saturating every fiber of fabric. Shadows move in between rays of fading evening sun from a window just above my head. Someone is talking. It’s a man. Again, a voice I recognize. I must have passed out and can feel Ben’s hands on my shoulders gently shaking me. As soon as I hear his name in my head I’m relaxed and the cold, wetness beneath me no longer matters. Nor does the object piercing my lower back. I’m lying on a wood floor moving the tips of my fingers in and out of the deep grooves in the planks. My ring finger stops on a nail sticking out of one of the floorboards. The head of the nail is round like the object making an indent in my skin.
Elizabeth. Can you hear me?” Shouts a dark figure hovering over me.
I find myself in the same precarious situation in this black hole of time travel. I can’t speak, though I know in a few moments I will be able to sit up and assess the situation. I assume that I went deeply into Cape May again, but oddly don’t remember a bit of it. Is it me they are calling? It can't be. I'm Caroline, not Elizabeth.
Everything looks different as I blink my eyes open and catch glimpses of the scenery around me. It’s dark and smoke has filled the air. I can faintly make out faces in front of me and feel brushes of clothing against my cheeks as people try to get closer.
These faces aren’t familiar. Where is Rebecca? Where’s Grace? Who has Grace? I can feel my heart beat faster and faster, sending me into a shutter of anxiety. I keep my eyes open for a few more seconds, longer than I’ve been able to so far. Everything looks strange.
When am I?
