When a time-traveling pair of Arizona professors fail to return home, their five intrepid offspring set out to find them. The good news is that Adam Carson and his siblings know exactly where Mom & Dad are. The bad news, it’s not a place, but a time. An exacting yet unpredictable science is time travel; and if Adam, Greg, Natalie, Caitlin and Cody don’t “time” it just right, they may never find Tim & Caroline Carson. Even worse, they may never see home again themselves.
Once again readers are treated to a dizzying romp through time and history, introducing them to a new family of time-travelers, the Carsons of Flagstaff, Arizona. Though a determined and loveable bunch, they pierce the veil of time with much less trepidation and scrupulousness than their cautious, logical predecessors, the Bell family of Indiana. Altering a timeline is not to be taken lightly; but the Carsons seem to rush headlong into romantic entanglements and close calls with both Mother Nature and the wrong side of the law the minute they land in December, 1888.
The research and science knowledge necessary on the part of the author to write this story credibly is admirable. However, this series seems more detailed and drawn out than the earlier novels which somehow makes the tale less believable rather than more so. As well, the ending is a bit unsettling, but readers who devour series fiction, served with a large helping of science, history and emotional drama are going to love it.
For the fans the time-hopping Carsons are sure to attract along the way, the journey is just beginning!
