Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The tagline for the Timekeepers series is:  History is supposed to be dull...  who knew it could also be dangerous?

I love that sentiment, as it recognizes that most of us--and especially schoolkids--tend to roll our eyes when the subject of history comes up.  It's in the past...  it's over and done with...  it's ancient history.  And yet, if you suddenly found yourself at some point in history, the last thing it would be is dull and boring.  Yes, it might even be dangerous!
It's also true that no matter where a person lives, SOME history happened there, and sometimes we forget how interesting that history is.  With this book--and the two other Timekeepers books that follow--I try to remind people that history has happened everywhere, and sometimes it takes an extraordinary event (like, maybe, time travel??) to remind us about what happened in our very own back yard.

Format: Kindle Edition
I initially found this book didn't grab my imagination but by the second chapter, I was intrigued to read more. From a historical aspect the author sent you back in time to experience the stark differences between lives now and then. The characters were engaging, average teenagers from different eras, gradually through the chapters you saw Kirstin in particular, change from a typical modern teen to a young woman willing to use her skills and wit to help a stranger, Rebecca to achieve her goal.

Rebecca Durrow was a true patriot who probably changed the result of the Battle of White Marsh, she along with her mother Lydia was a true heroine. I didn't know a lot about the Revolution and this novel has certainly piqued my interest. I truly look forward to the continued adventures in the next Timekeepers novel.
