Book Review-The Memory Tree (Carson Chronicles Book 2)-John Heldt

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Having read River Rising, Book 1 in the Carson Chronicles Books ( see my review here ) I was so happy that John Heldt asked if I wanted to read the 2nd in the series. I had been waiting for it for quite a while! Of course I said YES--I happen to love time travel books and John Heldt knows how to write them! I have also read and reviewed others in his Northwest Passage and American Journey Time travel series!!

In this continuing saga from Book 1 the Carson siblings are still looking for their parents--and their parents are still looking for them! They have managed to get to the era just before the end of WWI. Greg is still getting in trouble with the law and the ladies! The twins manage to get in touch with their bestie from Book 1--of course she is a lot older then they are now. Bridget is pregnant----There is a massive forest fire--

So why name this book The Memory Tree? You will like the answer but you will have to read the book to find out!

The way the book ended you know there will be another in this series---now I just have to wait--and so will you!

I received an e-book copy of this book from the author for my enjoyment and possible review.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

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.

The Memory Tree sounds like a very interesting book. Taking place in all my favorite years 1800's, early 1900's I think I will enjoy it very much. Doughboys, silent movies, and Model T's sound like an excellent adventure to me.

(The Memory Tree Book Review) This is a book that I know my one brother would really enjoy reading. I am more of a True Crime story person. :)
