For centuries, the Time Rose medallion has taken young time travellers into the past to restore the life paths of children whose histories have been altered. When all such paths have been set to rights, a final task awaits those destined to be the final seekers, aided by some who served the medallion in the four preceding generations. From Iron Age Britain to World War II Holland, these are their stories.


(15th-Century England)

Publishing History: MuseItUp Publishing: August, 2013 BWL Publishing, Inc.: August, 2015

The two little Princes in the Tower disappeared five centuries ago . So, what are they doing in our time?

No one knows what happened to the little Princes of the Tower. That’s what Dane, Paige, and Jack are told when they start working on a medieval documentary for Dane and Paige’s filmmaker father. But then an ancient medallion transports them back to the fifteenth century and gives them a chance to discover the truth about the mysterious disappearance of young King Edward the Fifth and his brother Richard, Duke of York.

But they’d better be careful. The princes are definitely in danger, and the person responsible for their disappearance just might decide their new friends should disappear as well.


(Victorian Era England / Canada)

Publishing History: MuseItUp Publishing: January, 2014 BWL Publishing, Inc.: September, 2015

Life’s hard if you’re a Victorian street urchin. Will crossing the path of Jack the Ripper make it even harder?

Another journey into the past takes Paige, Dane, and Jack to Victorian London, where they meet two young mudlarks named Hetty and Pip. Even though life is very hard for them, Hetty is leery of seeking help from Dr. Barnardo or other social reformers who might separate her from her little brother.

The Time Rose Travellers have an idea for getting around that problem, but they’re about to have another. Jack the Ripper’s grisly attacks on women in the East End have the whole city on edge, and the blood splattered man Hetty and Pip come across late at night doesn’t want witnesses on the loose.


(Pre-European Settler Okanagan Valley, Canada)

BWL Publishing Inc.: September, 2015

The medallion connects the Time Rose Travellers to young people whose lives were once disrupted. Is the same thing now happening to them?

The discovery of an old book provides more information on the medallion, but Paige and Dane will soon be returning to Canada and know it will be several months before they can make another time trip with their cousin Jack. Then, amidst all the preparations for Grantie Etta’s one hundred and fifth birthday party, strange things start to happen, and as a result, Jack must go to Canada as well.

Once there, it soon becomes apparent that the only way for the Time Rose Travellers to stop the increasingly distressing alterations to their modern-day lives is to venture far into the Okanagan Valley’s past and locate the syilx girl who has the legendary Arcanus Piece.


(Pre-WW II / WW II Germany)

BWL Publishing, Inc.: September, 2016

A brutal time to which millions fell victim. Who can – who should – be saved?

On Paige, Dane, and Jack’s fourth time trip, the medallion connects them with children living in Pre-WW II Germany. One, Hani, has Down Syndrome. Another, Nicko, is a gypsy.

The Time Rose Travellers know the Nazi regime will soon begin persecuting such ‘undesirables’, but keeping Hani and Nicko from becoming victims isn’t going to be easy.

Plagued by enemies from their own time, and not even sure who they’re supposed to be helping, they’re meeting with resistance from Nicko, and open hostility from Hani’s sister Marta, an ardent member of the Hitler Youth.


(Ancient Rome / Ancient Armenia)

BWL Publishing, Inc.: October, 2017

The culmination of centuries of Time restoration is at hand. But is it going to stay in the right hands?

The medallion has found the one it seeks. In Italy to attend a family wedding, Paige, Dane, and Jack’s final time trip takes them to a waiting Varteni, who is living in Herculaneum in the path of an already rumbling Mt. Vesuvius.

But getting Varteni and her two young charges to safety is the least of their worries. They’re not the only ones to have finally located her. Their nemesis, Khatcheres, has too, and is preparing to move against her and seize control of Time. To defeat him, the Line of the Restorer must unite and call upon every resource available.
