I was born in Eldorado, Illinois Be sure to pronounce that with a long A but grew up in Woodburn, a tiny village in Macoupin County We lived in a house over years old and I often wondered about the people who had lived there so long before My husband Bob and I farmed and raised a family there in Macoupin County When the kids were old enough I went back to college, majoring in English with a minor in Creative Writing Afterwards, I taught high school English, including creative writing, composition, grammar, and literature I loved teaching young people, except for grading compositions of writers who didn t want to write, leaving me no time to do what I had always wanted to do write I remember one time when I was four I scribbled furiously on my paper, and then took it to show Mommy Is it writing I asked No, not yet, she answered I went busily back to scribbling with my stubby pencil in just the same way, it seemed to me, grownup writers did, hopeful that the next time I showed her, the lead on the paper would have been transmuted into fine wordsI was in th grade when I first began to get the dream of being a published author We had to write a story and mine was a scary one about being unjustly confined to a mental hospital The author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest may have stolen my idea My teacher wrote on the top of my paper Be sure to give me a signed copy of your first book It s been a long time since th grade, but that dream at last came true with my first book Time and Again.

    It was a good book, but kinda weird I didn t really enjoyed certain things in the book.

    I enjoyed this read but didn t love it Clearly well researched history but at times it got a little too detailed in the history and I felt like the story got bogged down Also, I was annoyed that I was expecting a Christian romance, but the romance does not resolve in this book In fact it doesn t really get started Still, it was a fun read and I enjoyed the time travel bits Not sure if I would recommend it to a friend unless the specific topics came up.

    Once Again, a Professor Merri Randall Rewinding Time History Mystery Book 1By Deborah Heal.I almost stopped reading this before I ever looked at page 1 Why As usual, I often go back to either theor Goodreads summary of a book when deciding what to read next This time it was to the author s website where two words jumped out at me Christian fiction Nope, I am not usually a fan Not because I think the author s aren t good at their job Not because the stories aren t as compelling as Once Again, a Professor Merri Randall Rewinding Time History Mystery Book 1By Deborah Heal.I almost stopped reading this before I ever looked at page 1 Why As usual, I often go back to either theor Goodreads summary of a book when deciding what to read next This time it was to the author s website where two words jumped out at me Christian fiction Nope, I am not usually a fan Not because I think the author s aren t good at their job Not because the stories aren t as compelling as any regular fiction story And not because it isn t nice to find a well written book that isn t full of profanity and or gratuitous sex But because, in most cases, the author can t seem to resist throwing in a Bible verse even when it isn t needed and really does nothing to move the story or character growth forward It s the one big complaint I have about this novel.Every other element is spot on.I love a good time travel story and this one has the most ingenious time travel method since H G Wells set off on his crazy adventure.I love a well edited and well proofed novel, and this one was perfect on both counts.I love relatable characters who aren t perfect, but who I still would enjoy knowing were they flesh and blood I love characters of differing backgrounds, outlooks, and ages Again, this novel delivers on all counts.I love novels that are well researched and yes, I check Quick online searches assured me that not only does Lebanon, Illinois exist, so does McKendree University The storyline also sent me checking to see if the Chief Kewaunee of the story might be the same as the Chief Kewanna for which a small town near my hometown in Indiana is named They are not the same, by the way I also checked other historical facts and was pleased to see the author had done a great job not only of researching, but of melding fact and fiction together seamlessly.There were a few minor thing that bothered me At 3329 on my Kindle, was this and coyote were harmless to humans, I don t think that is really true Yes, they will avoid contact where possible, but can and will attack if cornered or threatened It also bothered me that the author states the Abby character does not celebrate Halloween for religious reasons, yet her children are allowed to pass out candy and admire the costumes of others and to construct fairy dolls fairies being decidedly non Christian Yet the Halloween holiday is a Christian one, although like Christmas is borrowed from earlier religions In the Christian faith the holiday falls on the evening before all Hallows Day or All Saints Day, and kicks off the Three day celebration of AllHallowtide So, while I could see not celebrating with demons, ghosts and goblins, chucking the entire holiday on religious reasons made no real sense The author should have just stayed with Abby not wanting to celebrate because it was the anniversary of a loved one s death Aunt Eulah.All in all I thought it was a great book I really liked the creative take on time travel, and I liked the characters But my eyes hurt from rolling at the unnecessary Bible verses, etc Ms Heal, you can write a novel that celebrates high moral standards, doesn t use vulgar language, and portrays the tenants of Christianity in modern life, without quoting the Bible So, even though I loved much about the book, I doubt I ll buy any others in the series

  6. Lynda Knapp says:

    Nice readI give a 3 star rating only because it seemed like there was too much history in the story I did enjoy the book, however I will readby Deborah Heal as I have enjoyed a couple of her other stories.

  7. Ingrid Burbey says:

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This book follows upon some other series It can be read alone, but would be better after reading the previous series The primary relationship does not get resolved by the end of the book, which was a little disappointing.

  8. Linda Carroll-Bradd says:

    Now only did I enjoy reading about the dedication of heroine Merrideth in her historical research methods but I liked the genealogy aspect The details were so rich I know the author has done boots on the ground research.

    Little Merri Randall is all grown up in this new series from inspirational time master Deborah Heal She s followed her dream of becoming a young PhD history professor at a southern Illinois college It s been years since her childhood encounters with a dangerous and mysterious software program called Beautiful Houses When she accidentally rediscovers the program not only still exists and is just as active as ever, curiosity overcomes her good sense and she is once again drawn back to explore Little Merri Randall is all grown up in this new series from inspirational time master Deborah Heal She s followed her dream of becoming a young PhD history professor at a southern Illinois college It s been years since her childhood encounters with a dangerous and mysterious software program called Beautiful Houses When she accidentally rediscovers the program not only still exists and is just as active as ever, curiosity overcomes her good sense and she is once again drawn back to explore time.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

    Three starsThis book is well written but just not quite to my taste It s a mix of sci fi time travel and shades of romance friendship It would hint at romance but never did develop into it.
