About the Book
Title: Through the Shimmer of Time | Authors: Jennifer Jensen | Publication Date: July 30, 2014
Publisher: Pangur Bán Books | Pages: 216 | Recommended Ages: 8 to 12
A mysterious pottery shard . . . A haunted cabin . . . A shadowy stranger . . . And no way home
Present Day: Jim has a talent for getting into trouble. Grounded from his model rockets, he goes exploring where he shouldn’t and gets zapped back in time. Can he find the way back home or is he marooned in the past?
1838: Hannah’s life in her frontier village is filled with a little play and a lot of hard work. A seemingly harmless trick lures a strange, dazed boy from the old haunted cabin. Now Hannah must make a choice – and face the dangers.
Together, Jim and Hannah struggle to unmask a thief and solve a murder while they search for the key to unlock time. It will take all their courage and wits, plus the rocket motors in Jim’s pocket, just to stay alive. Through the Shimmer of Time is full of adventure and mystery for any pre-teen history and time-travel lovers, especially those who have outgrown the Magic Tree House series.
The Buzz About the Book
“40 years old and my child inside me could not put it down. This unique writing definately [sic] takes me back to some great stories I have read in my youth. I highly recommend this for anyone that loves time travel.” ~ 5 Star Review, CRCurtis, Amazon
“The characters and the story are very engaging, and realistic. By the time I was halfway through it, I was a totally believing in time travel! Bravo, Ms. Jensen. Keep up the good work!” ~ 5 Star Review, Kassandra L., Goodreads
“This story made me feel like a kid again. I loved mysteries as a child, and even as an adult I gobbled this one up. It’s middle-grade, and I think it’s perfect for that age group. There’s mystery, excitement, a hint of danger, and an annoying little sister (not really, but he thinks she is and don’t ALL siblings think that?). It’s real life, with time travel twists. Love it. If your child likes mysteries and time adventures, they’ll love it.” ~ 5 Star Review, Melinda V., Goodreads
