The Time Capsule by Connie Lacy is a love story that spans generations. The year is 2019 and Hannah Myers has a lucrative job at Murphy & McCandless Public Relations but, after three years, she has become disillusioned with it all. She leaves her job and finds herself wandering in the Baldwin Theater, one of the oldest continuously operating theaters in the country, having opened its doors in 1910, where somebody gives her a mysterious key. One thing leads to another and she finds herself back in time in 1918, and deeply in love with David Wagner, a newspaper reporter at the Atlanta Sentinel. This is their story.
Connie Lacy's The Time Capsule is a fast-paced and dialogue-driven love story that takes place at a momentous time in the history of the United States of America. A virulent flu epidemic is killing millions of Americans and its young men are being shipped to Europe to fight in the First World War. In this setting, we meet Hannah Myers, traveling between generations and meeting the love of her life. Connie Lacy introduces us to a number of highly interesting characters in The Time Capsule and this is what makes her story compelling. And as the story shifts from 2019 to 1918, she describes the scenes so vividly that it's just like going on a time travel trip ourselves. Everyone who has fallen in love before can surely relate to Hannah and David so it is a teaser of how the relationship will turn out in the end. This book is a very entertaining read.
