The olden days aren’t all they’re cracked up to be . . .

“I call it time-surfing,” Abby said.
“It’s like being there,” Merri said, “except no one can see or hear us.”
“Whatever you call it,” John said, “that was crazy—beyond realistic. I mean, I was inside that guy’s head.”

Those who have read Time and Again know that Abby Thomas is a college student on a summer service project with 11-year-old Merri. And they know that the summer is not going the way Abby had expected—but in a good way. For one thing, she meets a very nice guy named John Roberts. And for another, she discovers a strange computer program called Beautiful House that lets her fast-forward and rewind life. Not her own, of course, but those of the people who lived in Merri’s old house.

And now Beautiful House comes in handy when Abby, John, and Merri 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 name. But was he really guilty? Abby and John must get inside the mind of a murderer to find out.

And while they’re rummaging around in the Old Dears’ family history, they also find Nathan Buchanan, a heroic relative connected to the Lewis and Clark Expedition—and a legacy waiting to be reclaimed.

But the most important discovery they make is that God’s promise to bless a thousand generations is true.

“In this sequel to Time and Again Deborah Heal has taken pieces of real life history and woven them [into] a fantastic story geared to keep the reader entertained and on the edge of their seat... I adored every single bit of this. It has the perfect blend of history and action-packed suspense to keep young adults glued to the pages...

I think she has mastered a home run here. This one easily rates a 5 out of 5 stars for me...and I hope it will work its way to the top of the best seller lists for young adults.”

I enjoyed reading this book. A different kind of story with the time travel concept with the computer program has become even more exciting as the author continues to write! A nice book to read on a night when you want to get cozy and lose yourself in this adventure.A read for teens as well as adults, well written!more
After reading Ms. Heal's, Time and Again, I couldn't wait to read Unclaimed Legacy. I had to know the rest of the story. I found it.This story picks up after Time and Again. Abby finally gets to go on a date with John. Merri is out of her shell and really getting into the studying thing as they continue to explore the history around them. This time, John gets involved and they discover more about two sweet old ladies who live nearby.I found myself crying as I read many parts of this book as it was very emotional involving spousal abuse, murder, and injustice. Ms. Heal once again takes the kids back in time where they find way more than they expected to.This book was even more enjoyable than the first. I think it was mainly due to the fact that I already knew the characters and could focus more on the plot. My same praises can be said about this book. The characters were extremely real and pulled you close to them. The history was amazing and had me wanting to look stuff up and investigate which is really cool.This is a great Christian fiction read that you have to read this year. I do recommend that you read Time and Again first. So much will make sense.Note: This book was part of a book tour with no expectation of a positive review.more
We left Abby, Merrideth and their friends trying to get Merri’s house, Colonel Miles’ house, to return in her computer program Beautiful House. But other chores loom ahead for the group as John’s cousin needs a housesitter just at the time Merri’s mom leaves for conference. As Lucy explains the care and feeding of her antiques and her dog the next-door neighbors pop over. Twins, Beulah and Eulah, one an old maid and one a widow. Grew up in Lucy’s house only to move next door when they got older. Abby and Merri are trying their darnedest to convince John that they really were inside the program but he’s not buying it. He is totally infatuated with Abby, but can’t lean far enough to go for the inhabiting a computer tale. You can’t blame him. Beulah and Eulah know one of their relatives lived close but died in childbirth. They are trying to finish their family tree with no luck until…..the house across from the old Museum yields some very important information. This is part two of the Time stories by Debbie Heal and our friends are back. John, the questioning law student; Abby the tutor and, of course Merri who is growing up a bit by now and learning that life may not be how you want it but you’ve got to deal with it anyway.The things they find in the burned out home will shock them, enlighten them and make them understand why they were meant to be part of history in a much more intimate way. An excellent book! Read part one Time and Again first or lots of this won’t make much sense.more
