The Second Bride by Katherine Swartz. Published by Lion Hudson

Ellen Tyson is enjoying a quiet, peaceful life with her husband when storm clouds blow in. Her husband’s teenage daughter, Annabelle, unceremoniously moves in with them. Ellen tries to get along with the teen, but Annabelle makes it clear she has no interest being part of her father’s new family. When Ellen finds a death certificate dated 1872 under the attic floor boards, she sees an opportunity to get Annabelle involved in a real life mystery. Together they search for the truth about Sarah Mills and in doing so, see the similarities between the past and present. Told in both the present day and the mid-nineteenth century narratives, this is one of those books you just want to crawl up inside. A wonderful read for a cold winters night
