Siblings Matthew and Elizabeth Janssen, eighteen and seventeen, together with their parents, take a long family vacation in Cape Cod, since Matthew leaves for college in the fall. Curious, the two teenagers start exploring and discover a secret room in the cottage they’re renting for the summer. In this room, they find a dusty old grandfather clock with a letter hidden inside. This mysterious letter alleges that the clock is actually a time travel device. The letter writer, John, claims that, in 1927, he went back in time to save his cousin Alice, who was murdered in 1907, and whose ghost is doomed to forever flee down the beach, trying to escape her murderer—but to no avail. However, something happened, and John got stuck in 1907. He begs whoever finds the letter to figure out what went wrong with the clock and fix it, returning him to his own time of 1927. Is it all a hoax, or could it possibly be true? And once Matthew and Elizabeth figure out what went wrong, fix it, and return John to his own time, will they be able to resist temptation to try it on their own? After all, the clock’s been fixed, so what could possibly go wrong?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Y/A book I've read in a long time. A friend told me to read this book because she knew the author and had read his first book, Waiting in the Shadows, a 5 star novel. Right from the start, the story grabbed me and only got better as as I got farther into it. By the time I was half way through the story, I was fantasizing about the travels the two main characters in the story were taking. I felt like I was part of the excitement, heartache, and frustration. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a great adventure tale with lots of plot and ingenuity. I look forward to the next book this upcoming writer brings out. Jason G.
