is 1763. Gideon Seymour, cutpurse and gentleman, hides from the villainous Tar
Man. Suddenly the sky peels away like fabric and from the gaping hole fall two
curious-looking children. Peter Schock and Kate Dyer have fallen straight from
the twenty-first century, thanks to an experiment with an antigravity machine.
Before Gideon and the children have a chance to gather their wits, the Tar Man
takes off with the machine, and Kate and Peter’s only chance of getting home.
Soon Gideon, Kate, and Peter are swept into a journey through
eighteenth-century London and form a bond that, they hope, will stand strong in
the face of unfathomable treachery.
detail comes alive as debut author Linda Buckley-Archer weaves the
eighteenth-century trials of Gideon, Kate, and Peter with the modern-day
worries of their parents and the wily investigator trying to piece together the
children’s disappearance. A time-travel tale, the first book of the Gideon
Trilogy introduces readers to a modern genre all its own. Download and start listening now!
