    I love historical fiction, so I was skeptical about mixing time traveling into the story However, I really enjoyed this story It was engaging and fun and though time travel was involved I was still able to become fully immersed in the historical worlds of Scotland I actually liked that the time traveling allowed multiple time periods to be explored All the worlds and time periods were masterfully tied together with an underlying topic violence Will Menzies is struggling with violence in ou I love historical fiction, so I was skeptical about mixing time traveling into the story However, I really enjoyed this story It was engaging and fun and though time travel was involved I was still able to become fully immersed in the historical worlds of Scotland I actually liked that the time traveling allowed multiple time periods to be explored All the worlds and time periods were masterfully tied together with an underlying topic violence Will Menzies is struggling with violence in our present world as his mother is being held in a foreign country she is a doctor who went to help sick kids Through each of his travels he notes the violence and ends up questioning why we haven t learned from history and why we continue to have vi...

    This adventurous story is about Will, who is packed off to Scotland with his younger brother, Jamie, so that his dad can go and rescue the mom, who is being held against her will in another country The details on that part of the story are sort of sparse, because the big story is that Will and Jamie can time travel When they arrive in Scotland, J...

    This was an enjoyable, okay read for me I just didn t connect with it as much as I had hoped I would I was very intrigued by the way time travel was used and explained throughout the book I enjoyed seeing all the different time periods that were visited and all the different characters that we meet But, the underlying commentary on mankind s violent history and how we never learn and keep repeating ourselves got to be a bit too much for me at tim...
