Now & Then, by Jacqueline Sheehan
Read, reviewed, and released in February-March, 2012
It seems to be sort of fantasy genre, which isn't usually my choice, but I tried it.
I'm glad I did, it was an interesting and enjoyable book with a mixed-up plot. In the midst of a family crisis (the near-fatal accident of the protagonist's brother), a busy young professional woman and her teenage nephew are suddenly whisked through the ocean and back in time to 19th century Ireland, just before the great potato famine. The woman finds herself in the household of a poor servant class family, while the young boy becomes the pampered foster child of an English aristocrat.
