Eyes Like Mine by Julie Wright. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.

After Liz King's father's affair, her whole world is turned upside down. In the divorce shortly therafter, anger and sadness were common emotions. Now, beause of her father's actions, what is left of Liz's family is suffering great financial trouble. After her sister's piano is sold, Liz works even harder to keep her only friend - her horse, Sassy. When Liz's great grandmother shows up, fresh from the pioneer trek, through some accidental time traveling, things start getting just plain weird. At first she is reluctant to accept this woman (who looked her age) as real, Liz soon finds that Constance was sent to her not only for her sake but for Constance's sake as well.

I really enjoyed 'Eyes Like Mine'. The idea is unique and quite refreshing. This book helps show us we can get through our burdens as a better person, or we can turn bitter. 'Eyes Like Mine' is a fairly fast read and is definatly worth the time. It can be related to very easily by many different people. I recommend it to ages 12 and up.
