About M. M. Justus

"A GRAND yarn you can't put down." Janet Chapple, author of Yellowstone Treasures, on Repeating History.

"The details paint a word picture so vivid that readers can see the story play out in their minds."
Steve Dunkelberger, Tacoma Weekly, on True Gold.

I am fascinated by the possibilities of what if. The memories of place that some people call ghosts, the möbius effect of time travel. You won't find vampires or werewolves in my books, I'm afraid. Or horror. I am more interested in the potential effects of the fantastic on normal folks, and in inserting it into well-researched historical events, populated mostly by people who really lived.

I'm also an avid student of the road, and Cross-Country will not be my last travel adventure book.

About the Series: Time in Yellowstone
What if people and places are connected in ways we’re not aware of? Could those connections change the future? Could time be a

Möbius strip, never ending, always circling back?

What if two people could catch a glimpse of each other across time? How would it change their lives?

What if someone, in exactly the right – or wrong – place at exactly the right – or wrong – time, could be transported into a past that

wasn’t at all what he expected, only to have to create his own future? And how would that affect the people around him, and those people he loves in both times?

I received this book free from the author through LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The main female character was very determined and stubborn which made for a very interesting book. This book is historical fiction showing the plight of women during the Klondike gold rush with a surprise ending. I will be reading the other books in this series to find out the whole story. A well-written book.

Fun read. I enjoy historical fiction but hadn't read any set in the Klondike gold rush before. I found the setting to be fascinating, and the descriptions were good enough that I could almost feel the icy cold wind. The interactions between the characters was fun, and the goats added some comic relief.

I have the next book in the series, "Repeating History" in the "to be read" queue on my Kobo.

True Gold

I enjoyed reading True Gold, by M.M. Justus. I liked its historical setting and the accuracy of the carefully researched setting and action, which was so well-done that the reader could almost feel the icy winds of the Klondike. I also enjoyed the interaction of the leading characters with one another and with photographer Eric Hoel. The story moved quickly, and there were only a few very brief, less exciting bits. The goats added a certain something to the story, as well.

I think that if I had to find a fault in the work, it would be that both Karin and Will seemed too quick to judge others for people of their age and time, and were both incredibly stubborn.
