Kira Sakamichi is a career-driven woman, trying to achieve success before her mother’s constant interference sentences her to a relationship. But when a grudging drive to meet her mother’s latest “selection” ends in a lake accident, Kira wakes up lost in the past, the concubine of a 16th-century samurai, and mother to his six-year-old son.
When actions in battle lead to the samurai’s condemnation, Kira learns that she and her son will share the samurai’s fate. Only by understanding the importance of duty and family in both time periods can they survive.

IN MY OPINION
There is a lot happening in A Second Chance by Walt Mussell. This novella includes time travel to 16th century Japan, a faint romance thread, and the consideration of what is worthy of great sacrifice.
While I never quite found a compelling reason for modern-day Kira to be swept to the past (other than she looks like the woman from the past), once the time travel occurs, I didn’t care. Why? Because Mussell paints such a vivid picture of the Kira from the past’s life, I was immersed. And to enhance this 100-page story even more, the author includes a chapter-by-chapter listing of the historical events that influenced A Second Chance.
If you are in search of a quick evening read that transports you into Japanese history, you do not want to miss anything by Mussell.
