An interesting mix of science fiction and historical fiction. Dana, a modern woman in the 1970s, suddenly starts to be transported back to the antebellum era. She has numerous journeys back and forth and it's unclear exactly why she's being transported initially but she soon discovers that she is somehow linked with a boy, the son of the plantation owner. She knows that she wants to help make some things right but changing people's opinions is more difficult than she imagines.
