Two years ago, a weird trick of time sent Travis Merrill spiraling from 2016 to the year 1877. Committed now to his life in frontier Arizona, Travis is married with a child on the way and is homesteading a ranch. His knowledge of the future, however, keeps him at odds with his neighbors, his friends… and his wife. He finds it more and more difficult to protect his home without alienating his family, yet he can’t ignore what he knows is – and will be – true.
What did I like? As all of you know that have followed my reviews, I love time travel and this one is really fantabulous. I have explored a lot in this area that the book speaks about and have been a history buff all my life. I love the fact that the author really did her research for the time period and it really shows in her writing. That period is the time that I wish that I could go back and visit… wow it would be magnificent! The main character Travis Merrill is a guy that any woman could fall for and the growth from book one is superb. Melissa has a strong sense for the period and her characters and they have all expanded into people that we would all love to meet and have as friends.
What will you like? If you have not read book one; Finding Travis, please do! The antics of the three main characters really set the stage for this one and you will really enjoy it more. I saw a tremendous growth from book one to this one not only in the characters but in the strength of the story. She was very good with her details and descriptions so that you could just close your eyes and feel like you are right there. I was also impressed with her expansion on saving the land and the methods that could be used even back in that time that would impact us in the future. This was shown in the first book but even more so in this one. If only they would have just a little of our current knowledge back then … wow could things have been different today???? This series is one that I have shared with many of my friends and I highly recommend it to anyone that wants a good clean book/series that is interesting, emotional, funny and just plain awesome.
Being Travis picks up a couple years later. Travis is married, moving a few miles away from the army camp where he landed in the first book to settle down with his pregnant wife.
I typically find books and stories with a time travel element to be interesting thought experiments. When the person has gone Back to the Future it introduces some interesting things to consider. How does the person deal with advancements in knowledge that they're privy to, but the rest of their cohorts aren't? What things can they do safely without changing the future in some way that they'll regret? This book has some of that, as well as plenty of tense moments, balanced out by some feel good moments, and even a run in with a historical figure. It was a fun and entertaining read as well as provoking a bit of thought. I'm looking forward to the next series installment.
