Whisper Falls, by Elizabeth Langston

A strong first novel by Langston, this fantasy deals with a mystical location where a young man from the present encounters a young woman who’s an indentured servant in 1796. The chapters are written from their alternating perspectives. Through their growing friendship, we learn more about the life of female indentured servants in this era, and the challenges they face. Recommended for 14 and up, due to the abuse Susanna suffers from her master.
