Time and Again: Charlotte of Miles Station by Deborah Heal
Time and Again Series Book 1
Abby Thomas needed to choose a summer service project. With teaching in her future she chose to tutor a young girl for the summer. Her excitement was not met in the same way. Young Merredith didn’t seem to care about anything. She didn’t take care of herself and Abby allowed her physical appearance and bad attitude to rule her opinion of Merredith as well. As Abby gets to know the girl she sees the underlying circumstances that have caused Merredith to be like she is. Such as moving from Chicago to this hick town of only a few homes, if you could even call it a town.

After meeting young Michael and Mrs Arnold, an older neighbor woman, an interest in what Miles Station use to be like opens up into an adventure. Especially when they discovered the home Merredith’s mother inherited belonged to the founder of the town, Colonel Jonathon Miles. When they realize they can see his daughter, Charlotte Miles, on a computer program, learning history becomes an exciting past time.

I found this to be an easy flowing book where the characters and town came to life. It was one of those books for me that was hard to put down, “just one more page” type books. It is so special to watch Merredith as she comes out of her shell and the friendship they give to Michael. The history they learn as they go back in time was put in such a way that I found myself sitting there ‘watching’ the Douglas/Lincoln debate, seeing the difference in the candidates clothing and speeches from the author’s description. Deborah’s writing brought out the emotions for me as well….whether a smile or tears. Much of the story was built on true facts. I’m looking forward to the next book, Unclaimed Legacy.
