Switching Well by Peni R. Griffin.
Margaret K. McElderry Books/Macmillan Publishing Company: NY, 1993.

Ada, in 1891, and Amber, in 1991, wish at the well to be in opposite times. Ada wants more freedom-especially from her younger brother and sister. Amber is upset about her parents' separation and wishes her mother didn't work at a shelter for children. When the girls switch times, they both must deal with unexpected problems, and they both look for a way to get back to their families. The girls' stories are creatively interrelated, and social factors in both time periods are incorporated in the book.
