Days after barely escaping 1889 with their lives, the Carsons, siblings from the present day, resume their search for their missing parents in 1918. While Adam and his pregnant wife, Bridget, settle in Minnesota, unaware of a wildfire that will kill hundreds, Greg seeks clues in his great-grandparents' Mexico, where he finds love, danger, and enemies. At the same time, Natalie, the ambitious journalist, follows a trail to World War I France, and teen twins Cody and Caitlin rekindle a friendship with an old Pennsylvania friend haunted by her past. In THE MEMORY TREE, the sweeping sequel to RIVER RISING, several time travelers find answers and meaning as they continue the adventure of a lifetime in the age of doughboys, silent movies, and Model T's. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
In River Rising, Book 1 of the Carson Chronicles, you meet Adam, Greg, Natalie, Cody, and Caitlin. They are a group of siblings from the future that go on a search, in the past in 1889, for their time traveling parents. Now they're back on the hunt in 1918, and all have trials and adventures waiting for them. Adam and his pregnant wife settle down. Greg and Natalie both go on their adventures. Greg is off to Mexico, Natalie to France. Cody and Caitlin meet up with a past friend. In this story, the siblings all split up. Adam and his expecting wife face wildfire danger. Cody and Caitlin meet up with Emma, a classmate, and lover, from 1889. Greg gets himself into some trouble while in Mexico. The trouble results in him changing his life in a dramatic way. Natalie goes to war and comes home a new person. All the while their parents are traveling all over and chasing their kids. This book was amazing. It was a great addition to this series. The ending was yet again, another cliffhanger and I can not wait to read the next book. I have read all of this authors books, and each book is better than the last. This book, like the others, was filled with family, love, danger, friendships, and history. You get to look further at old characters and meet and fall in love with new ones. The Carson clan is terrific. It was another great book by one of my favorite authors. Reviewing these is always hard. Not because they are bad, but because they are just so awesome that I can't decide what to say! So I'll leave it at that!
