For a Time

by Dixie Fowler

A fictional fantasy novel focused on two young girls who were born exactly 100 years apart. Rebecca lived in Tennessee with her Aunt while her father John Bell went west to Oregon with the railroad. Rosie was Rebecca’s great grand-daughter and lives in Bandon Oregon. The girls connect through a magic trunk and learn to travel through time in an epic adventure. The story is loosely based around the authors’ family history and features historical photographs of unknown relatives that are hauntingly beautiful. This is the first novel publication for the primary author, who has previously published academic articles in professional journals. There are at least two sequels planned for the book, one which will continue where the story ends and another will branch off into the Mermaid realm with Miss Sylvie.
