The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster by Scott Wilbanks

Annabelle Aster doesn't bow to convention-not even that of space and time-which makes the 1890s Kansas wheat field that has appeared in her modern-day San Francisco garden easy to accept. Even more peculiar is Elsbeth, the truculent schoolmarm who sends Annie letters through the mysterious brass mailbox perched on the picket fence that now divides their two worlds.

Annie and Elsbeth's search for an explanation to the hiccup in the universe linking their homes leads to an unsettling discovery-and potential disaster for both of them. Together they must solve the mystery of what connects them before one of them is convicted of a murder that has yet to happen...and yet somehow already did.

Scott Wilbanks has written a unique, one of a kind story that captured my heart. It is a tale of two women who find themselves locked together in a specific time described as a "hiccup" in the universe. They soon stumble upon a murder and a mystery that binds them together. I liked the numerous little plot twists and the way the mystery was carefully revealed. The author writes in an easy to read format, while describing breath-taking vibrancy. A brilliant, creative little book that will ultimately entertain! Highly recommended. Thank you to the author and publisher. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
