Women's Fiction Time Slip | Inspirational
When Detroit Free Press reporter Elizabeth Balsam
meets James Rich, his strange request--that she look up a
relative she didn't know she had in order to deliver an old
camera and a box of photos--seems like it isn't worth her
time. But when she loses her job after a botched
investigation, she suddenly finds herself with nothing but
At her great-aunt's 150-year-old farmhouse, Elizabeth
uncovers a series of mysterious items, locked doors, and
hidden graves. As she searches for answers to the riddles
around her, the remarkable stories of two women who lived
this very house emerge as testaments to love, resilience,
and courage in the face of war, racism, and
misunderstanding. And as Elizabeth soon discovers, the past
is never as past as we might like to think.
Debut novelist Erin Bartels takes readers on an emotional
journey through time--from the volatile streets of 1960s
Detroit to the Underground Railroad during the Civil War--
uncover the past, confront the seeds of hatred, and
where love goes to hide.
