Riding Shotgun, by Rita Mae Brown
Modern problems merge with ancient ones in this novel in which the protagonist, Cig Blackwell, follows a fox into history and winds up in 1699. As she comes to grips with living without modern conveniences and being mistaken for someone’s missing twin sister, she begins to sort out her modern problems as well: a 15-year-old daughter with Lesbian inclinations, a sister that was sleeping with Cig’s now-deceased husband, and a teenage son. But will she be able to return to 20th century Virginia? And, as she begins to fall in love, does she want to? Cig will remind you of a cross between Harry Haristeen and Sister Jane.
