    I saw that you reviewed Melanie Dickerson’s The Merchant’s Daughter on Amazon.com. Obviously, you appreciate quality Christian fiction. (I loved this book and posted a review also.) My debut YA novel, Time and Again: Charlotte of Miles Station (ISBN 978-1-61346-669-8) was released in January 2012. It is a mystery with Christian themes. If you’d be willing to give it an honest review, I’d love to send you a free copy— at no obligation, of course. You can read more about it at: http://www.deborahheal.com. Thanks for your consideration.

    Here’s a description of Time and Again:

    When Abby chose tutoring an “an economically disadvantaged adolescent” as her college service project, she didn’t realize how difficult her summer would be. Merrideth, her 11-year-old student, has been sullen and depressed ever since her parents’ divorce, especially since she was forced to move to the dilapidated old house her mother inherited. When Merrideth’s dad sends her a top-of-the-line computer to make up for his absence in her life, she and Abby discover a weird program on it that invites them to “Take a Virtual Tour” of various houses around the world, including, amazingly, Merrideth’s own house.

    And then they discover the program is more than a simple visual experience. Much more. After mastering its features, Abby and Merrideth find they can “time surf” to any date, including 1858, when the house was new and young Charlotte Miles lived there. By locking onto Charlotte, they can get into her head—know her thoughts and feelings—and experience her world, even when she gets on the train to go to the Lincoln/Douglas debate.

    Watching from a distance as Charlotte faces the challenges in her life, including the hardships of war, gives Abby and Merrideth new perspective on their own problems. Time and Again is a story told in the past and in the present. A story of self-discovery and faith.

    Sincerely,
    Deborah Heal
