Other than that, the characters were confused and choppy. The female was not interested - then interested - then not interested - then interested. All in one paragraph?
Take a pass on this one.
Merredith uses the program to help her in both her work and private side business, researching family history. She has grown up reluctant to share herself with others, a definite lack of trust in others and even to a certain extent her own abilities and gifts. When the physics professor sets his sights on her, Merri has a lot to overcome, especially her teaching mentor, to believe anyone might be personally interested in her.
Told from Merredith’s viewpoint throughout, this story and series is a history lover’s dream. Because the character is a professor, her lectures that include blocks of rote history are a natural part of the story, as are the fascinating dialog sharing dates and people. Merri’s trips through time provide a virtual visit to experience life in the late eighteenth century literally through those people’s heads.
Just a fascinating series with excellent research. While science is not discounted, the details of the software’s ability to provide virtual time travel experience for the user doesn’t hinder the reader. The books are part of a series, and while a reader can pick up any story and read it with enough information from the past books to make sense of the particular story arc, you’ll want to read the whole series. I know I will. Recommended for those who love plucky wounded females with a side of romance while reading their history.
This series picks up fifteen years after the end of her last series, “The History Mystery Series” which I haven’t had the privilege to read yet (but it is now on my “must read” list). Returning characters have grown in the ensuing years and the focus shifts from Abby and John Roberts (the heroine and hero of the first series) to the all grown up Meredith (Merri) Randall, now a history professor at the southern Illinois school, McKendree College.
A computer program called Beautiful Homes which allowed the characters to visit the past without ever leaving this century stopped working several years ago. But now it’s back up and running. Because of its unique qualities Merri is able to use the program to visit historical sites in Illinois that not only boost her credibility as a historian, but also allow her to begin a side business helping others research their family trees.
The stories concept is unique and charming. I love learning more about the history of my home state, as well as reading about places that are so familiar to me. I wish I had a Beautiful Homes program. It would make researching my own family tree much easier.
I highly recommend this book as a light inspirational read. It is Christian without being preachy. It is suitable for teens and young adults, though I know it can be appreciated by adults of all ages. It is simply delightful. Don’t miss this one.
