this book is amazing and it combines historical fact and fiction perfectly with the detailed fictional science of time travel and the troubles two children of the 21st century would have being stuck in the 18th century. i cant wait until i read the next book!

Interesting in that it simply does not plump its poor benighted accidental time travelers (two teenagers named Peter Schock and Kate Dyer) down in the past without positing how it is effecting those left behind in the 'now'. The main characters literally blur occasionally, wherever it is they are, and drop back into their future present (sounds like a grammar text) - thus arousing rumours of ghosts and suspicions of madness.

In the meantime, back in the late eighteenth century, they face highwaymen and ignorance and a general repugnance for a world unaware of hygiene and speedy communication and safe civil authorities...

Haven't finished this first book in the series yet but I am enjoying it.

I can not finish this book.Time travel books are tricky to write their basic, as in you know what going to happen. Have to get really creative with time travel.
What this lacks the most is emotion towards and between each character. The characters are flat they jump right in to time traveling. I would like to know these characters before they time travel. Add a little more depth to them. What is this antigravity machine? It never been fully explain.
The good thing about this book is the history, I love any thing with history in it.
Despite this being a kids book, let them read what they want. Never ever tell a kid a book is too hard, let them figure that out for themself and if you see a kid reading a book that you think is terrible, then let them decide for themself and recommend them books that are well written aforewards.

Listening to in the car with my kids. An interesting time travel twist with boy & girl protagonists who time travel from the present to England in 1863. The kids & I enjoyed the gritty details of life in the past and the challenges faced in their quest to return to the present. The parallel story of the modern quest to recover the lost children is not as interesting, but furthers the plot.
