A clandestine meeting with an elderly woman named Annie, and her young granddaughter Hanna, will start a chain of events that will change fifteen year old Caroline Lindstrom’s life forever—paranormal encounters, eerie illuminations, unexplained time shifts, traveling back in time to 1902 through a mysterious portal. Warned by Annie of a devastating disaster that occurred in the past but which can only be changed by someone from the future, Caroline must find the answer before the gateway closes forever.

Caroline’s relationship with her angry, controlling grandfather contributes to the ongoing source of her frustration and discontent and although the year is 1955, she feels as if she is living in the Dark Ages. When her life spirals out of control, she returns to the past, realizing she must stop the catastrophe that will befall Annie’s family. Will she find the courage to confront the past and change the future, or will she fail in her mission?

“Little House on the Prairie” meets “Back to the Future”. Wonderful!
By Frederick H. Crook “F.H. Crook” on June 27, 2015
Format: Paperback

I had the privilege of reading this story prior to its release, receiving it as a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

The characters are well-written and with such heart and sincerity that they are all quite authentic and believable. Every bit of the story is written with care and literary grace. The plot itself is a wonderful weaving together of historical fiction and science fiction. Think of it as “Little House on the Prairie” meets “Back to the Future” and you may begin to understand it.

DeKelver has written a real winner here and I look forward to her next adventure. This is definitely a 5-star read, kids. Don’t pass it up.”
