Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a fantastic book. You will experience a story rich in true history, mystery, on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspense, romance, humor, serious devastation, and characters you will absolutely fall in love with." -- The Reading Cafe

"Heldt had me tearing up more than once! He also planted me firmly in the 1880s with his incredible descriptions of an era, an atmosphere, and the people of a bygone era." -- Tome Tender

"My heart is still pounding." -- Bookish Lifestyle

"I am once again blown away with how well Heldt is able to flesh out his characters while placing them inside his stories like they belong there and have always been there. He seamlessly moves from the modern world to the historic past, putting his characters inside of towns and lives as if they were meant to always be there." -- Lara Girdler's Reviews

"This book is an absolute joy to read." -- Roxie Reviews

"River Rising is an epic time-travel adventure. From the moment the five siblings walked through the time portal and into 1880s Pennsylvania, ​I knew I was in for an exciting ride." -- Stephanie's Book Reviews

"Heldt brings prominent events in history to life for me. He has a way of creating the scenes perfectly in my head. When you add in the time travel aspect and some fun characters, the story takes on humanity and life." -- Getting Your Read On

"You will need tissues for this one, and there are lots of twists and turns as the Carson siblings time-travel to 1888 to find their time-traveling parents. The historical realism that is intertwined within the fiction will have you gasping." -- Miki's Hope

"The Carson Chronicles' River Rising is adventure, family, trust, and romance. This massive 661-page book may seem overwhelming to conquer, but it reads so fast, and you'll be sad it ended." -- Heaven's Fiction Reviews

"John Heldt does it again! He is one of the only authors that write a time-travel story I'll read." -- Hyper Ashley

"I jumped at the chance to read this book." -- Boundless Book Reviews

"A fascinating story filled with suspense that had me captivated till the end. The author has created an adventure like no other." -- Bookpeek

"Heldt has blended fact and fiction to good effect and has clearly researched the events of the time." -- Whispering Stories

"Love the action, love the suspense. If you think that you have read all the time-traveling books, this will surprise you." -- Read Try Write

"This is definitely my favorite of John A. Heldt's novels." -- Author Angela Kay

"A fascinating and engaging story that grabbed me right from the start and never let up." -- Books are Theater of the Mind

"Once again I learned about an event in history. Heldt captured it so perfectly that I could actually see it play out in my mind." -- Reading with Monie

"Striving to continue in author John Jakes' tradition of family saga series, author John A. Heldt has gifted readers with this wonderfully moving first look at the indomitable Carson clan." -- Blogger Jackie Burris
