This riveting time travel western follows the journey of Christine Stewart and her fiancé Ethan on their quest to save everyone that they hold dear. However, there is something very unusual here. Instead of running to the hills like everyone else, they are running back in time. To the 1790’s, Alexandria, Colonial America.
What follows is a series of nail biting events detailing how this group of fifteen people, including two toddlers and three teenagers, make it to the 1970’s and survive there. The story is engaging right from the first chapter. I could not tell if I was pulled in the by intriguing plot or by the fascinating characters. I’m quite sure that author Christ Cooper-Burnett’s writing talent will make it easy for readers to be enthralled with both in this action packed historical fantasy.
The author wastes no time in introducing the crisis in the U.S. in the 2070’s, and why these people must escape their home. The author is able to create a compelling backstory along with the development of multiple characters and yet manages to strike the perfect balance between detail and keeping up the fast pace of the story.
While I enjoyed the story I felt that there some characters that I wanted to see even more developed as I found them interesting but didn’t get enough page time, along with a little fleshing out of some of the sub plots that are found throughout the story, because I found even these minor plots interesting.
Escaping Home: A Time Travel Historical Adventure is a gripping plot-driven science fiction story that tells an invigorating story and is guaranteed to entertain readers from start to finish.
