Five Boundless Stars
The story of the Whitfield family continues in the third book of The Hands Of Time Series. Mr. Taylor, the maker of the clock that once sent both Valerie and Louisa to the past, has came to the past himself to give the women the opportunity to go back to their time if they choose. While there he leaves his new and improved time travel device unguarded. It falls in the hands of young Finn, Valerie and Alec's son. He finds himself in 1775, a time of hostility and war. He is alone and confused. Once noticed missing, his parents use the device to go search for him. Will they find him or will he forever be a stranger in a different time? While Alec and Valerie are away things go from bad to worse at home. Louisa and Kit start a new new journey of their own...in England. This book was an adventure. I absolutely love following this story. Each book just adds and builds up this family saga. The characters, as always, are so easy to love and each book adds more to them and makes them even greater in my mind. This book was written so well and was a great book of romance and suspense. It was also filled with so much action and drama that it was very hard to put down. Once again I was very pleased to read another awesome book in this series. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.
