Overview

Scientist Ellie Ward has discovered a window to the past. In fact, she discovered it at her childhood home when she was nine and she's been using it to extract herself from bad situations ever since. Each time it's returned her to the 'defining moment' in her past - the point in time where a bad decision set her on the path to tragedy. The problem is, Ellie never knows what her defining moments were and so she never has any idea how much of her life she's going to have to repeat to avoid her latest ordeal. When Ellie's research takes her to a remote area of northern Canada, she faces yet another crisis when her small plane crashes in the bush. Seriously injured and stranded more than 2000 miles from her portal to the past, this time Ellie has no way to 'rewind the clock'.

    I was privileged to be asked to read and critique Defining Momen

    I was privileged to be asked to read and critique Defining Moments
    during its creation/editing process, and can honestly state the the
    author, Faye Hicks, was completely open to any suggestions and comments
    I made. So, having stated up front that I was one of Faye's beta
    readers of this novel, I have no qualms at recommending it to anyone who
    enjoys a well-crafted story featuring a strong female character who,
    like most of us, makes mistakes by falling in love with the 'wrong'
    person. Unlike most of us, however, the protagonist in Defining Moments
    is given the opportunity to undo the bad choices she makes, even though
    it may mean reliving many years of her life over again. But don't
    expect a simple love-story; Defining Moments is also a tale of tragedy
    and pain, as well as one of time-travel and adventure. Readers can
    expect to become immersed in this page-turning story, and will want to
    read the entire novel in one sitting if possible and then ask the author
    for a sequel. Highly recommended first-novel from this talented author.
