When Kevin Johnson, 22, goes to Wallace, Idaho, days after his college graduation, he expects to find rest and relaxation as his family prepares his deceased grandfather’s house for sale. Then he discovers a hidden diary and a time portal that can take him to 1910, the year of Halley’s comet and the largest wildfire in U.S. history. Within hours, Kevin finds himself in the era of horse-drawn wagons, straw hats, and ankle-length dresses. Returning to the same time and place, he decides to travel again and again and make the portal his gateway to summer fun. The adventure takes a more serious turn, however, when the luckless-in-love science major falls for pretty English teacher Sarah Thompson and integrates himself in a community headed for tragedy. Filled with humor, romance, and heartbreak, THE FIRE, the sequel to THE JOURNEY, follows a conflicted soul through a life-changing journey as he makes his mark on a world he was never meant to see.
John Heldt was kind enough to give me an ARC of The Fire so you’ll be reading my review of it tomorrow, but for now I just want to let you know that his fourth book in the Northwest Passage series is now available! If you’ve read my reviews of his first three books, you’ll know that I’m super excited to sink my teeth into this one. I don’t want to give too much away when I say that Kevin’s story is not at all like the previous ones in that the main character travels back and forth in time deliberately multiple times. But will this lead to tragedy? It’s hard to tell.
Now available on Amazon for $3.99.
