Description:

What would it take to convince you that the woods you just left is a hundred and forty-four years distant from the one you entered?

Ten years have passed since the Civil War broke up John Bartley’s family. Living with his aunt and uncle in the tiny village of Greendale, Vermont, isn’t filled with excitement for a seventeen-year-old.

Until John walks into the woods one day and stumbles into 2009…

Fortunately, he chances upon the outspoken Tess McKinnon. To earn her trust, he must first convince her that he is neither a lunatic nor a liar. The proof he needs is buried at the end of a mountain road, where the ruins of Greendale lie just beneath a layer of dead leaves and moss.

What became of his home? Why is there no record of its existence?


My Thoughts: 

John Bartley finds himself in 2009 when he passes a tree and winds up at Tess McKinnon's house unsure of how to get home or how he got there.  Tess is not quick to believe John's story and tests his history to find out how much it is true.  When she is unable to shake the feeling that John needs her help she does what she can to help him.

This book was great and reminds me like various other time traveling books, where characters need help to return to their time frame.  I enjoyed the story and learning about Tess and John and the various details of their history.  

Definitely a great book with history and depth of characters.  Can't wait to see what is next for this great author!  Next book by him is:
