Neverwas (The Amber House Trilogy, Book 2)

neverwasWritten by Kelly Moore, Tucker Reed, and Larkin Reed

Sarah moved from Oregon to Maryland with her family to take ownership of the matriarchal family home. The home holds secrets from the many family members who lived there since it was built. Sarah keeps seeing events that happened in the home. She has to put all the pieces together and find when history was altered and make it change. Can she do it? Can her childhood friend help her put history back on the right track? Why would someone want to stop her from making the change?

If Sarah is successful, how will her family, friends, and everyone in the world change? Would they still be a family? Would the good things that happened in this time period be changed in the “real” time? You will have to read all three books to find the answers. This is the second in the trilogy of Amber House books. I can’t wait to read the third book. This is an excellent example of what could happen if just one thing was changed in history. It was suspenseful, fast moving, full of intrigue, and hard to put down.
