    Tragic Links is award-winning author Cathy Beveridge's fourth young adult novel focusing on Canadian disasters. This time Jolene and her family find themselves in Quebec where Jolene's father is conducting research for his Museum of Disasters. When Jolene finds a time crease, she discovers Montreal in the 1920s. Back there at the church, Jolene said, "I was hiding." But Stephan, the handsome boy who lives next door to her Grandma Rose in Montreal, knows otherwise. And so Jolene divulges their family secret: the ability to time travel through time creases. After a narrow escape in Montreal in 1927, Jolene travels to Quebec City with her family and Stephan. When Stephan disappears, Jolene, Michael and Grandpa go back to 1907 and watch horrified as the Quebec Bridge collapses. With a new understanding of family and friends, Jolene returns to Montreal where she completes her family tree, learning in the process how tragically linked to the past she really is.
