Eyes Like Mine by Julie Wright

Eyes Like Mine by Julie Wright

Constance Miles Brown is on her way to Zion and is searching for her husband William, who has gone missing from their wagon train. The last time she had seen him, he had kissed her and their baby Eliza to go look for the horses. The wagon train decides to go on without her and she is blinded by anger against God for sending her to Zion, when all of a sudden she finds herself hurtling through time. When she comes to a stop, she runs smack into her 5th great granddaughter, Liz King, while Liz is busy at the stables with her horse Sassy.

Liz has been angry with life, has shunned her friends, wanting to exclusively be around her best friend Sassy. Liz is totally shocked at Constance's arrival, esp in her pioneer clothing and strange behavior and strange accent. Constance doesn't understand why she's been flung into the future, but soon begins to understand her purpose in helping Liz and her mother Claire. Liz is angry at her dad for leaving and marrying another woman who she has issues with. Claire begins withdrawing from her family, spending more and more time in her bedroom sleeping.

It isn't until a harrowing accident occurs that Constance and Liz come to understand how much they love each other and just how much human friendships are. When both Liz and Constance find proof of Constance's future, things get topsy-turvy. Even Liz's childhood friend Garret seems to be attracted to Constance!!! When Constance makes plans to return to the past, Liz freaks out, since she doesn't want to feel abondoned like she has with her dad leaving.

When Liz gets to visit Constance's birth home while on her mission, she knows she has come home. This is a great book for YA and adults to ponder our heritage and what we can learn from our ancestors.
