Deborah Healabout this book: I grew up in a very old (circa 1874) house and used to daydream about what it must have been like to live there when it was new. I never have found a way back (Still looking for a WABAC machine on eBay) but fortunately for my characters, they do:
When it comes time to choose a service project for her college, Abby picks "companion and tutor to an economically disadvantaged adolescent." Even if it would be a little boring spending the summer in a run-down house out in the sticks, it was sure to be a lot easier than the other options available. But how is she supposed to do her job when all she has is a stack of moldy books and a depressed eleven-year-old student named Merrideth who wants no part of it?
That is, until the weird program on Merrideth's new computer starts waking them with its blue light special—an invitation to "take a virtual tour." And when they meet Charlotte Miles, the angry young woman who lived in Merrideth's house over one hundred fifty years before, the summer begins to be a lot more interesting.
Watching Charlotte's life unfold from a distance, Abby and Merrideth can see what Charlotte can't always see from her perspective: There's a lot more to life than the frustrations and disappointments that seem to dominate her days. Evidently, God has a plan for her—something important. Something big.
