Midnight at the Electric Kindle Edition
6 Starred Reviews and a New York Public Library Best Book of 2017!
New York Times bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson's epic tale—told through three unforgettable points of view—is a masterful exploration of how love, determination, and hope can change a person's fate.
2065: Adri has been handpicked to live on Mars. But weeks before launch, she discovers the journal of a girl who lived in her house more than a hundred years ago and is immediately drawn into the mystery surrounding her fate.
1934: Amid the fear and uncertainty of the Dust Bowl, Catherine’s family’s situation is growing dire. She must find the courage to sacrifice everything she loves in order to save the one person she loves most.
1919: In the recovery following World War I, Lenore tries to come to terms with her grief for her brother, a fallen British soldier, and plans to sail from England to America. But can she make it that far?
While their stories span thousands of miles and multiple generations, Lenore, Catherine, and Adri’s fates are entwined in ways both heartbreaking and hopeful. In Jodi Lynn Anderson’s signature haunting, lyrical prose, human connections spark spellbindingly to life, and a bright light shines on the small but crucial moments that determine one’s fate.

The space program operating from Wichita, Kansas. Love that so much. Yes, I once lived there.
This story was compelling and I loved every bit of it.
I think this is what I'd call a cozy read, I really wanted to get inside the book and snuggle up with the characters. They were so warm, and sweet, and real, and beautiful and strong.
This is a book about life, finding your place in the world, and being grateful for every single thing you have, even when it feels like it's not enough, because that's what life is about.
I think that after you finish this book, you too will be very glad you read it.
I give Midnight at the Electric 5 stars for its great read.
I would recommend this book to everyone.
