Time and Again by Deborah Heal
Technology, history and faith make for a unique combination.
Abby Thomas is spending the summer in a run-down old house with a bratty pre-teen named Merrideth she is supposed to tutor. Not a dream job. But it does come with perks.
There’s John Roberts, a devastatingly attractive neighbor who is almost too wonderful to be real.
And there’s the new computer program Beautiful Houses – also too amazing to be real. No one knows how it works, but with it she can rewind and fast-forward the lives of all the people who ever lived in the house, including Charlotte Miles.
Review by Debbie:
Really interesting story with great historical references to the house where the family is living . . . took me a while to adjust to the narration, which could have been better . . .
I love that the tutor that the mother hired for her daughter is a Christian and takes the time to share her faith. This is a fun listen, as well as educational. Technology, history and faith make for a unique combination and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
