Book Description

Maddox's life changed the day she read her real birthdate: May 17, 1820. Not 1990, like she’d been told all along. Sure, there had been clues: her mother's old-fashioned style, the fact that her parents refuse to talk about her grandparents, but she never could have guessed they were actually from the past. And if that wasn't enough, now she has to go back in time to live for good. She has descendants living now, and if she doesn't go back their lives will never be.

Once she figures out how to go back in time, she struggles with the impending change her life is about to take, and her relationship with shy, unassuming Henry Yancey: the man she is supposed to marry. But if the decision to go back isn't hard enough, she soon finds out there is someone who will stop at nothing to keep her from going back, and he's running out of time. Will Maddie fall for Henry, and will she be able to make it back in time before the portal closes?

About the Author

Katie Andrews Potter grew up in Carmel, Indiana and at an early age grew interested in her family history. She would (and still does) spend hours upon hours looking through old books and records searching for one more branch to her family tree. Katie has always enjoyed writing and has piles of old spiral-bound notebooks filled with stories. It was on one trip to an old cemetery in Brown County, Indiana in 2009 when the storyline for Going over Home popped in her head. What if you found your own name on a headstone? What would it be like to meet your ancestors? From that day on the story took a hold in her mind until it was fully formed. Katie lives on the near eastside of Indianapolis with her husband, Ben and their children, Eliana and Micah, and a zoo of pets. She has her degree in Elementary Education and is currently working with people with disabilities. Find Katie on Twitter @andrewspotter26 Facebook: Email: Blog:

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story January 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the stories that take you back to the frontier times. This is that and so much more, almost a bit of a sci-fi twist, but stays true to the theme. It blends the past and present in a way I've never experienced.

5.0 out of 5 stars It kept getting better and better and better! October 28, 2012
By Timon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was written by one of my oldest friends, but even if I didn't know the author, I would've loved it! Sisterly friendship, adventure, mystery, a leap in time, a villian, and even a little romance all tied together with a solid narrative voice make this book a winner. I felt like I was right there with Maddie on her journey to figure out the mystery of her past and decide her future. That mystery is NOT predictable at all, and there are enough twists in the plot to keep you turning pages. Fast. The action just kept picking up--right when I thought it was about to plateau and wind down to the end, something else happened. I could not put this book down. Give it a try--it just keeps getting better and better...and better!

5.0 out of 5 stars Different for me January 28, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a great book. I don't usually read time travel books, but this one was intriguing. It got really good towards the end, so I would recommend reading it to find out what happens. Katie did a great job with this book.

Maddie never realized that her family was any different than anyone else's till she went to school. Her family was old fashioned and they never told her or her sister's anything about thier family. When she went to school, she got curious. Then when she went to college whe found out the truth, they were from the past. And her and her sister have to go back, but there is someone trying to stop them. Again, this was a very well written story and it changed my mind about time travel novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first novel by new author January 23, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
The book started a little slow and clunky, but it was clear when the author got comfortable with her characters and the worlds she was creating the story really took off. After realizing this was her first book I have to give her a lot of credit. It is well written, well edited and maintains a consistent plot throughout. It's not so heavy in family history research to intimidate anyone who isn't into genealogy. It is great story for anyone who has ever dreamed about meeting an ancestor, grandparent, or any other relative they never actually got to know. I really look forward to spending more time with these characters and reading more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drawn In March 27, 2013
By Beth
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this historical fiction novel! The author drew her readers into the story as you followed Maddie's journey to discover her past. Often the reader is shocked by the turn of events or the struggle of Maddie's daunting decision. I loved the descriptions used, the fun play on Indiana's fickle weather, and the sweet romance introduced. Little phrases made me smile and chuckle to myself, knowing all too well those same thoughts had crossed my mind at one point of another. Bravo Katie Andrews Potter! I can't wait until the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating! November 24, 2012
A unique story line, good character development, fascinating glimpse into history - I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was captivated from the start. It is refreshing to read a book with a good story line that is not drenched in sex and violence. The historical aspect is very interesting too as you get a sense of the history and the challenges of living 200 years ago. It's a great read.
