What a magnificent story in Crown City by John Heldt. I am a definite fan of this author! Whatever this author writes, I read. This author brings the story to life. This is the conclusion of the Time Box series, which was all about time travelling, hiding, and drama. The Lane family travels back in time, and sometimes, finds an era to stay in. This book spans a century, of drama, secrets, survival, and trying to figure out how to live, what time to live in, and to finally stop hiding. There is a need to settle down, somewhere where they would fit in. The Lanes children, are growing, and want to live a "normal" life or explore more. The characters had a lot of depth, and were very realistic. This author has a great imagination and I'm glad it's being shared with stories. The story brings in the believable, even if almost impossible. It’s one of those embraceable stories. It’s definitely un-put-downable! It is always an honor to read this author's books. Both thrilling and intriguing, all the way to the end. I hope to read more books by this author. Crown City is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
