Rook by Monica MacDonald
Could you be the monster to save who you love?
Two women, separated by generations, must leave what they know to start a new life. Seventeen-year-old Kate's senior year is ruined when she's moved from the only home she's ever known. After an isolating month alone in her apartment, school starts, but neither her classmates nor her teacher are who they seem. Kali, a single mother living in the nineteenth century wilds of Montana, is stalked by a malicious past. She fights to keep her daughter safe while her freedom is threatened by her less than benevolent benefactor. Both find love, and with it hope, but that is quickly ripped away as one woman must learn the lessons of the other before it's too late to save either.

5 of 5 Rook
Rook is an amazing story that had me at the edge of my seat. There is a dual POV one from the 19th century and one from the current time. This was weird at first because I had to get used to the time the girls were in but once I started to get the jest of the story I was really engrossed and could not put it down nor did I want to.
In this story we get to meet Kate who is in her senior year of school and has to move. Not happy but resigned to what it is Kate deals with the move. Then we get Kali who is in the 19th century and she is dealing with some things. At first I was like what the heck does one have to do with the other. But as the story goes on and you get both POV's you get to see that both stories actually mingle together and Kate is the one that is going to have things happen to her and she will have to learn to navigate through life with this new knowledge.
This is one story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I really don't want to give away to much but I have to say that the worlds described and the things that happened to both girls and how their lives will inter twine together. This story is so heart wrenching and heart provoking that you will not be able to put this book down.
