A little curiosity never hurt anyone, right?
When Jim ditches his little sister to search for a haunted cabin, he gets time-traveled nearly 200 years into the past – right into the middle of a swindler’s cover-up. The criminals have murder on their minds now, but Jim is trapped in time.
Hannah’s life of family and farm chores is turned upside down when a boy in strange clothes suddenly appears in the old trapper’s cabin. Should she believe his wild tale? And how much will she risk to lay a friend’s ghost to rest?
Jim and Hannah struggle to unmask a thief and solve a murder, but it will take all their courage and wits, plus the rocket motors in Jim’s pocket, just to stay alive.
If you love time-travel, mysteries and the olden days, start reading THROUGH THE SHIMMER OF TIME now.

“This story made me feel like a kid again. I loved mysteries as a child, and even as an adult I gobbled this one up. It’s middle-grade, and I think it’s perfect for that age group. There’s mystery, excitement, a hint of danger, and an annoying little sister (not really, but he thinks she is and don’t ALL siblings think that?). It’s real life, with time travel twists. Love it. If your child likes mysteries and time adventures, they’ll love it.” ~ 5 Star Review, Melinda V., Goodreads
