A woman, a war, a vision of the future past...

Burdened with the scars of a tortured childhood and a shattered romance, Kitty is being forced to resign from the dull, anonymous job she’s been hiding behind. With her life in shambles and her friends moving on without her, she jumps at her cousin, Maggie’s, invitation to visit.

However, Maggie’s new boyfriend, Simon, has a secret that accidentally hurls the trio a hundred and fifty years into the past. Trapped in the midst of the bloodiest war in American history, and acutely aware their actions might trigger a butterfly effect on the future, the events that unfold will require more mettle than Kitty’s ever had.

A transplant from the concrete sidewalks of New York City to the sunny beaches of Southern California, Ms. Carney enjoys writing stories about women who are strong—whether by nature or circumstance—and the men who love and respect them for who they are. Things that make her happy are rainy days (too much sun is a bore), writing the perfect first line, family get-togethers, reading books that grab her heart, and finding new connections in her genealogy research. Bold coffee and dark chocolate fuel the artistic fire inspired by her family, friends, and psycho, lizard hunting cat.

My Review:
Fated Memories is by Joan Carney. This is my first book by her and I was drawn in on page 1. I enjoy time travel books and love the Civil Wat era. This book had both and a couple of romances. I would love a series personally.

In the book Kat is unhappy with her life and job. She is ready to give up her independence and move back home to get a fresh start. When her cousin Maggie asks her to come stay with her. Kat jumps at the chance. Maggie's dying Grandmother asks for some things in a hidden room in her old house. The house had been sold a few years before so Maggie decides to break in to find this hidden room. Once there they find the room and amongst the things in the chests they find an old necklace. Little do they know the powers this necklace possesses. 

Maggie's New boyfriend has had images or more like memories from a past life of being in the Civil Wat in 1861. Maggie buys into it but Kat just can't wrap her head around it. Past lives are just not in her belief system. 

One night the trio goes out to a bar, there a drunken co-worker or Maggie's shows up and starts trouble. This moves to the parking lot. There he goes after Maggie and the chain to the locket is broken with Maggie holding it in her hand Simon grabs both ladies and starts to run away as he does he is thinking he wished they were back in 1861 and this wouldn't be happening. 

The trio wake up in an empty field lost and bewildered. They soon find out they are in 1861 in the middle of the Civil War. None of them know how or why. They just know they need to figure out how to get home.
