Tangled in Time Tangled in Time

by Fairbridge, Lynne

The author presents a captivating story of a young girl's travel in time back to the harsh realities of the Depression years. The book opens with Janna's world being turned upside down when her widowed mother tells her that she plans to remarry. Withdrawing from her family and feeling as though her father's memory has been betrayed, Janna finds herself attracted to a mysterious painting in her grandmother's house. When a beckoning woman in the painting lures Janna into the past, she is convinced that she must be dreaming. However, once she is transported into the past a second time, her predicament becomes frighteningly real when she becomes trapped as a member of a Dutch immigrant family in Neerlandia, who had followed the promise of a new land only to find themselves battling poverty in the Dutch farming community northwest of Edmonton. Janna must adjust to her new situation - being dirt poor and working as a maid, yet with knowledge of what is to come…. The novel offers a superb account of a young girl facing the challenges of growing up in two very different worlds and coming to understand the many bittersweet faces of love.
