...to another century.
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.
In 1858, the house is a train stop on the Alton &
Chicago Line. And Charlotte is stuck there serving meals to the passengers,
wondering if she'll ever get to have any fun. And then she meets two travelers
who change her life forever.

And it inspires Charlotte to take up the cause of abolition.

hand in the lives of its inhabitants.
