"TIMEQUEST is an exciting adventure laden romantic tale."
At Superstition Mountains, Arizona, Dr. Sara James knows
from her cousin Caytlyn's trip to the past (see TIME RIDER)
that the plant Black Sage is the safest cure for snakebites
though none seem to exist today. Sara wants to find Black
Sage though Caytlyn's husband, Matthew Joseph Barton Black
Hawk warns her that 1882 is a very dangerous age for a
twenty-first century person. Sara's persistence persuades
the couple to ! assist her on her quest.
Historian Barton Grey Wolf knows of Sara's obsession as
he suffers from unrequited love that he hides from her.
When he learns of her plan to go back in time, he worries
that she might break vows made by several people including
his own ancestor the legendary Apache Shaman, Grey Wolf.
Still to keep his beloved safe and to insure no one
violates the oaths, Barton goes back in time without
telling her as does her sibling Jeff, who seeks to locate
the missing Dutchman's gold. Sara is upset because she
wanted to go, but also finds herself falling in love with
Barton. She meets her brother's girlfriend Patricia
Shoemaker and they agree to go back in time without being
accompanied by the men.
TIMEQUEST is an exciting adventure laden romantic tale
with a pinch of Native American mythos. The story line is
action-packed especially in the past, but most significant
is that the audience will believe that the individuals
traveled back to the late nineteenth century. The prime
cast (the James siblings and their significant others) come
across as fully developed so that their exploits make for a
delightful read. The audience will not want to lose any
time reading the finale once it is released.
