Editor reviews

Sam’s father has always been a bit odd, and in the years since Sam’s mom died, his dad has become even more unpredictable. It’s not unusual for Sam’s dad to disappear for a few days without warning, and as The Book of Time kicks off, Sam figures his missing father is on another of his spontaneous travels. It turns out Sam is half right: his dad is travelling – time travelling. In search of his father, Sam sets off through the ages, visiting medieval Scotland, World War I France, ancient Egypt, and even Dracula’s castle. Actor Holter Graham delivers stunningly versatile character acting, personifying wounded French soldiers, ancient Egyptian thieves, and vicious vampires. Graham’s gift for storytelling is underscored by his emotional authenticity and suspenseful pacing.

Summary

A statue, a coin, an old book - they look as dusty as everything else in the Faulkner Antiquarian Bookstore. But when Sam Falkner slips the coin into the statue, he's swept back to Scotland in A.D. 900 - the age of the Vikings. He must find both the statue and another coin in order to escape. It's the first journey in an adventure that will take him to ancient Egypt, World War I, even Dracula's castle...and a mystery that will end only if Sam can find his father in time - literally.
