Publisher's Summary

A Ripple in Time: It started as a routine Miami to Charlotte flight for the passengers, crew, and Federal Air Marshal Stephen Mason. But a freak storm over the Atlantic propels the airliner unexplainably back in time to the early 18th century.

Finding a way back, if that's even feasible, is the least of their worries. Can they survive and adapt?

The Planters: It's 1720, Charles Town, Carolina Colony, a time and place fraught with hardships and hazards. Carving out a life here will be challenging, especially for these modern-day transplants. The plan is simple: grow, harvest, sell, and make life as comfortable as possible.

New to a new world, can Mason, Karen, Jeremy, and Lisa navigate the hard realities they are only beginning to understand?

The Punishers: It's now 1723, Charlestown, South Carolina Colony. Mason and the three other remaining survivors have built their rice plantation into a thriving enterprise.

But when an opportunity arises to revisit an old adversary, Mason embarks on a simple fact-finding mission. The risks are minimal until an unforeseen turn puts Mason and his families' future in jeopardy. With so much at stake, can Mason adapt and achieve his ultimate goal?

Boring, Two dimensional. (Minor spoilers).

I am halfway through book two and I am STILL waiting for this story to "pop." There seems to me no emotion within the main character, or any character. They are two dimensional at best. When the plane crashes, the survivors offer a character bonanza a-la "Lost" fame. But the author is not up to the task of taking advantage of that and as of book 2, I don't care who lives or dies and that is problematic.

For instance, they are trapped in 1620 and two of the survivors are black. That alone could have accounted for a tremendous opportunity of conflict and story. But, alas, the author delves nowhere into this dynamic. Instead, he brushes over the slavery aspect with a, "its the times and they can't change that." While he is right about slavery in that period not being changeable, it doesn't stop him from going on a short, but pointed, screed about how much "cleaner" the ocean is without it being as polluted as today's. (Face palm.) The one character I REALLY liked, the historian lady, gets killed without ANY fanfare or sense of loss by the main characters. It's like hearing that a co-worker has died and going about your day as though nothing has happened.

The main character is logical and BORING. He NEVER approaches a situation colored by emotion...EVER. And, while a lack of emotion in decision making is a boon in the real world, fiction is BUILT on it. At the end of book one the main character wakes up back in the future having left behind a slew of people he, supposedly, cared about and a woman he loved. Yet, the reader gets no sense of desperation of his desire to get back. He, like he does everything else, methodically sets about trying to get back and succeeds through almost no fault of his own.

The main character also does dumb things. He makes a big deal of having a modern Glock, but it provides him NO benefit because he is often too afraid to use it, or have it confiscated because it might will mess up time too much.

Unless something happens to make this story "pop" between now and the end of book 3, it is plodding and seeded with TMI (too much information) about the day to day of getting themselves set up in their new time. I'm hoping things change for the better and if they do I will amend this review.

Misogyny Porn

The author didn’t even wait to get to the 1700s to treat the female characters as fearful, emotional and not capable of command or leadership. How absolutely boring! I didn’t get far enough to know how the author treats the enslavement of people during the 1700s.
