Unclaimed Legacy by Deborah Heal
Abby's weird computer program is working again. And it comes in handy when they agree to help the Old Dears next door with their family tree. Except Abby and John learn more about one of the ladies' ancestors than they ever wanted to know.
Convicted in 1871 of murder and arson, Reuben Buchanan is a blight on the family's reputation. But was he really guilty? Abby and John get inside the mind of a murderer to find out.
But while they're rummaging around in the Old Dears' family history, they discover the truth of God's promise to bless a thousand generations... and a legacy waiting to be reclaimed.
This book is different from what I usually read. It's a great tale of time travel using computer oftware, perfect for tweens. Adventure, mystery, and humor. You may even shed a tear or two. Abbi and Merri are off to Illinois where they meet 85 year old sisters who are researching their family tree. The girls offer to help and uncover something shocking. A fun read! Well written, the author covers many issues prevalent today.
I received a copy of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
