Walking Through Time
Lauren Walden Rabb
Two women born a century apart, whose lives are intertwined.
A young widow named Eleanor Strayer is finding it hard to get
over the death of her husband and get on with her life, when
she discovers a packet of letters from a woman who lived 100
years ago. The letters are from Gertrude Picknell, the young
wife of the artist William Lamb Picknell. It soon becomes
clear that it may not be coincidence that Eleanor has found
these letters -- Gertrude's life clearly echoes Eleanor's own.
When the letters abruptly end before the close of Gertrude's
story, Eleanor embarks on a quest to find out what happened
to the woman. In discovering Gertrude, Eleanor discovers herself,
and learns that sometimes we get a second chance to correct
mistakes we made in the past.
