Bookaday: Rubies and Other Gems - the Novel by Joyce DeBacco

Rubies and Other Gems - the NovelRubies and Other Gems – the Novel - Women’s Fiction/Time travel

Lily’s life is in the pits. Her husband dismisses her concerns, her children are rudderless, and she’s had a trying day in traffic. It's little wonder she seeks comfort in her dreams, unaware her grandmother’s rubies have transported her back through time to a safer, saner existence.

When she realizes her dream lover is a real man who lived and died years before she was born, her problems mount. Despite her fears that her marriage may not survive her unintentional infidelity, she’s entranced by the simpler nature of times gone by and can't resist going back, but only after imposing strict rules of conduct on herself.

When a miscalculation keeps her away longer than planned, she's confronted by an angry husband on her return. Aware she can't make amends and steer her children in the right direction unless she stays in the here and now, Lily vows to leave the past to the past. But in her attempt to take away the jewelry's power, she inadvertently sends herself back without her return ticket, the rubies.
