While on a train heading west, Ted Jacob and Megan Crane are thrown back into the past with no idea of how or why they got there. They get off the train at Fargo, North Dakota and learn they are in April 1898.

As if that isn't bad enough, the people insist that Ted and Megan marry at once! But Ted and Megan don't even know each other, and despite their protests, the preacher announces them man and wife.

The only way out of this mess is to return to the future. But between figuring that out and Megan's showdown with the men, they may discover that some things are meant to be. And love may be one of them.

My Thoughts
Meant to be had some enjoyable characters that you could relate to. I personally loved Megan's character and though at times I felt she overreacted I realized that if I was in her position I probably would have been freaking out a lot worse. This book brought a lot of smiles to my face and plenty of laughter. There were also a few sweet moments, but mostly there was a lot of frustrated characters and one chuckling reader.

The author used time travel as a means to bring two people, who otherwise would have probably never met, and brought them together into another century with foreign customs and no modern luxuries. This forced them to come to rely on one another and eventually build a new life together discovering what they had been missing in their old life, love. For the price of 99 cents you can own this beautiful story filled with love and laughter.


  1. Thank you for commenting on my post, "Falling in love with her husband." Reading your post on Meant to be, I think I will read the book. This story reminds me of Kate & Leopold, starring two of my favorite Hollywood stars. Another Ruth Ann Nordin novel worth reading is Eye of the Beholder. :-)
