Was it physics, mysticism or maternal bonds that transported William back into 19th Century America? Will his love for his modern day family be strong enough to grant his return passage to the second millennium or will the Natural Bridge tie him to a past he never knew?

A Brdige of Time

A Bridge of Time is a fast-paced adventure mystery. The story takes place in the area surrounding Virginia's Natural Bridge. This mystical natural wonder was a favorite place of Thomas Jefferson who once owned the land.

William, our introspective main character is magically transported to 19th century America where he is falsely accused of kidnapping a baby and forced to run for his life by the missing baby's family. Confused and desperate to get home to his own family, William narrowly escapes by crawling into a cave where he gets lost and stranded. Fortunately, William is rescued and taken in by a local landowner with whom he shares a stunning resemblance.

William's wife Kate, who witnesses his disappearance during a family picnic, is frantic with grief and desperate to find her husband. Kate recruits a professor of physics and natural science to solve the mystery of Williams' disappearance. Together they explore the historical record and uncover clues from the past. As the adventure unfolds, the reader is brought into a world where faith, family, love, friendship and self-discovery are important themes.

Given its strong plot and interesting characters, A Bridge of Time is an entertaining read. Although similar to the classic time travel adventure, this book has numerous additional elements that differentiate it from traditional science fiction. Whether you call it a historical drama, a mystery, or a time travel adventure, A Bridge of Time will captivate you.
