Beware of doorways through time… and the French

While on a routine research trip, author Amelia Murray walks through a doorway at an old fort and slips back in time to 1754, leaving her friends and college-aged daughter behind.

Taken hostage by a French military unit, her confiscated notebook, with the dates and locations of battles for a young George Washington, could lead to his early death and the demise for the future United States.

Amelia must escape the French, retrieve her notebook, and save Washington without changing the course of history.

When the door she traveled through won’t exist for another year, where will she find another doorway through time?

How is a modern-day woman going to survive in Colonial America on the brink of war?

The Time Writer and The Notebook is a Historical Time Travel Adventure exploring the beginnings of the French and Indian War through the wit and mindset of a 21st century woman.
