When Kevin Johnson, 22, goes to Wallace, Idaho, days after his college graduation, he expects to find rest and relaxation as his family prepares his deceased grandfather's house for sale. Then he discovers a hidden diary and a time portal that can take him to 1910, the year of Halley's comet and the largest wildfire in U.S. history. Within hours, Kevin finds himself in the era of horse-drawn wagons, straw hats, and ankle-length dresses. Traveling repeatedly to the same time and place, he decides to make the portal his gateway to summer fun. The adventure takes a more serious turn, however, when the luckless-in-love science major falls for pretty English teacher Sarah Thompson and integrates himself in a community headed for disaster. Filled with humor, romance, and heartbreak, THE FIRE, the sequel to THE JOURNEY, follows a conflicted soul through a life-changing journey as he makes his mark on a world he was never meant to see.
What did I like? Having seen the comet once in my life it would have been so interesting to have seen it in 1910 with the wide-open spaces! This was a stunning storyline and the ending will blow you away! I never saw it coming but had tears of joy when it did!
What will you like? The past like you was living in it yourself, the details and the descriptions were so lifelike. The emotions ran exceedingly high in this one and kept me on the edge of the seat with every page. Unbelievable twists and turns, excitement, romance, history and a killer ending. All that an incredible story that just grows and develops as you read. Characters that are amazing and feel like you know them or at least would love to know them. The action that has you holding your breath and unbelievable heartbreak! I am on my way to the last book. Can’t wait but don’t want it to end….

I have read all John Heldt’s Northwest Passage “Time Travel” stories. Rather than provide a synopsis on each and every one, I’m instead going to simply state my assessment of these novels as a whole and include it as a review on each one of the of the series.
Every story is about traveling into the past and setting the stage for the future. If you like time-travel, you’ll love this series. If I had to pick my favorite, for now I think “The Journey” would be it, but that’s just me.
Every story is a stand-alone novel. Occasionally there will be a subtle reference to one of the other novels, but that too is sufficiently explained to make it germane to the current story without requiring one to read any of the other stories.
Because every story is stand-alone, they don’t have to be read in any order. However, reading them in the sequence of being written will enable the reader to make most of the “connections” no matter how subtle they are. (“The Journey” is the only one that doesn’t appear tie in to the others – unless I missed something.)
What impresses me the most is how the author managed to tell five different stories, yet have them tie together in so many subtle ways. How was he able to keep track of everything? And, bless his heart, he doesn’t introduce too many characters to keep track of (I hate getting most of the way through a novel only to wonder “who’s Fred?” when he shows up long after being forgotten by myself).
The only “negative?” comment I might make is that the protagonists exercise “wisdom” way beyond their age when dealing with others. And, that’s not really a negative, but a wish that I might have shown such wisdom at that age instead of “acquiring” it the hard way.

I absolutely would listen to this one again. This started a little slow for me, but as I continued I became thoroughly sucked in.Read more
