Book Giveaway and Review of Time and Again by Deborah Heal

Charlotte of Miles Station
When Abby chose tutoring an "economically disadvantaged adolescent" as her college service project, she didn't realize how difficult her summer would be. Merrideth, her 11-year-old student, has been sullen and depressed ever since her parents' divorce, especially since she was forced to move to the dilapidated old house her mother inherited. When Merrideth's dad sends her a top-of-the-line computer to make up for his absence in her life, she and Abby discover a weird program on it that invites them to "Take a Virtual Tour" of various houses around the world, including, amazingly, Merrideth's own house.
And then they discover the program is more than a simple visual experience. Much more. Abby and Merrideth find they can "time-surf" to any date, including 1858 when the house was new and young Charlotte Miles lived there. By locking onto Charlotte, they can get into her head--know her thoughts and feelings--and experience her world, even when she gets on the train to attend the Lincoln/Douglas Debate.
Watching from a distance as Charlotte faces the challenges in her life, including the hardships of the Civil War, gives Abby and Merrideth new perspective on their own problems. Time and Again is a story told in the past and in the present. A story of self-discovery and faith.

Deborah Heal is a former high school English teacher who loves reading, gardening, and learning about southern Illinois history. She is married and has three grown children, three grandchildren, and two canine buddies named Digger and Scout. Today she lives in the St. Louis Metro East area, but for many years she lived not far from the setting of her first novel, Time and Again. In Unclaimed Legacy, the second in the trilogy, Abby, John, and Merrideth must clear the name of a man wrongly accused of murder--in a 150-year-old case! The author is currently working on book three.

  Time and Again Charlotte of Miles Station by Deborah Heal is a fantastic read. It is a great story to read for any age group, but I think young ladies would really enjoy it . It is quite a nice clean story without violence.
  This story has many themes to it. Divorce, neglected children, history, present day, love, family.
  Abby is a young lady who wants to tutor a young girl for a college project she at first wonders if she is cut out to help a girl who has so many problems and attitudes. Merrideth feels lonely since her mother divorced her dad and she doesn’t know why and they also moved very far away to a very small town. So Merrideth quits caring and just eats and watches T.V.
  Abby tries to bring her out of herself and they get into a computer program that carries them back over 100  years to the people who use to live in the house that they live in now. It is really a super fun read that will give everyone the desire to be better and keep looking up. I highly recommend this book.
