WARNING: Once you open this book and start to read it, you will not be able to stop until you have read through to the amazing end. A daughter, a mother and a father in the 21st century respectively carry an agonizing burden stemming from the daughter dying from cancer. A family is torn apart due to a mind-numbing tragedy. Each one faces a crisis. In each case, the pain of reality is too much to bear. Yet, each one successively experiences a distortion of time, a clap of thunder, the smell of jasmine and a force of wind that seems utterly impossible to survive. Via a time slip, welcome to the land of Israel in the year 30 AD. No spoilers will be given away here. But what is this well-researched novel all about precisely? It can be summed up in the following quote. An old woman lies dying in her bed. She is in her final earthly conversation with a local physician who has been caring for her. “Is that you, physician?” “Yes, Mehida. How do you feel?” “I don’t feel anything. It’s as though I’m floating somewhere.” She cackled softly, sounding a little like the old Mehida. “The view is dreadful. I remember myself as a young woman, yet here I am, old, crippled, wrinkled, and weakened by too long a life.” “Such happens to all of us, Mehida. You’ve had a good life, haven’t you?” “Some good, some bad. Some joy, some sorrow. Now I’m at the end of this life, and I don’t know what lies ahead.” “A man called Jesus said if you believe in him, you would have everlasting life with him. Jesus is the Son of God.” “I believe in the One God. I didn’t know he had a son.” He does, and the son’s name is Jesus” “How do you know he’s God’s Son?” “Several reasons. He raises the dead to life; he heals the sick; he speaks with the wisdom of the ages. The biggest reason I believe in him, though, is because his words reach my heart.” (pp. 231 & 232) Ann Baxter Campbell’s words, through the spellbinding arc of her storytelling in Blessed by Time, and from its beginning to end, cannot help but touch our hearts . . .

I have never read a time-travel book before, and to tell the truth, was a bit skeptical about beginning this one. I found myself pleasantly surprised as I was sucked into the story on the very first page of Blessed by Time. Sarah and Paul Johnson's only child, three-year-old Tamara, died of cancer only six months previously. Sarah's grief has not lessened, and now her marriage is crumbling as well. Things have become so strained that when Sarah disappears, Paul is suspected of getting rid of her. Where did Sarah go? Anne Baxter Campbell takes the reader back and forth between the present and AD 30, but transitions are smooth and easy to follow. She has done a remarkable job of describing life in the time of Jesus and has interwoven Biblical stories in with her own story. The impact is astounding. I had a very hard time putting the book down. I actually felt a part of the story. I was right there with Sarah as she struggled with the challenges of a new, sometimes frightening and always difficult, life. I walked dusty roads to the market with her. I fended off advances from her employer with her. I cried over her daughter's failing health with her. Campbell's amazing story will warm your heart as the characters come to know, accept, and trust the Savior. The message of the gospel will reach right into your soul as characters from two lifetimes learn to believe and trust. Blessed by Time is truly a book you won't want to miss. The story is riveting and the message is powerful. I am very glad I opened the cover! Susan Simpson

A Stirring and Wonderfully Imaginative Blend of Present and Past! In her newest novel, Blessed by Time, Anne Baxter Campbell has skillfully woven historical truths from the Gospels of the New Testament into imaginative reality, and blended the present with the past. A family’s story of intense sadness colliding with itself thousands of years into the past, culminates in joy, hope, and forgiveness, with faith at its center. My imagination came alive, forming seamless scenes with characters, situations, and places both new and old. Impossible time travel . . . or was it? A mind-stretching read from a strong Christian author. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it.
