Now and Then by Jacqueline Sheehan
The front of this books depicts a dog with a young ladies arms around it. It looks like it is going to be a light hearted read, possibly a romance.
There is romance, and there is a young lady and there is a dog but there is so much more between this pages, more than I could have ever guessed.
A young lady, Anna, is on her way back from a long flight abroad when she finds out her brother has been rushed to hospital in a coma. Whilst at the hospital she then finds out her nephew has been taken into custody. She has to travel off to pick up the troubled nephew.
Anna takes her nephew back to live with her, but that first night something happens and they are both transported back to 1844 but to two very different lives there, both filled with love and loss and struggles but in very different ways.
Jacqueline again uses her spirituality and open mindedness to create a riveting story that might be a little far fetched but how do we really know!
It’s a delightful read, the language easy making it easy to read and you will find yourself quickly absorbed into the plot.
