Publisher's Summary

A struggle for survival in a time long past. 

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. They find themselves on the sparsely populated coast of the Carolina Colony. Charles Town is the only English settlement of any size in the area. It's an inhospitable place of vast plantations, slavery, hostile natives, tall ships, and marauding pirates. 

Finding a way back, if that's even feasible, is the least of their worries. These unintended time travelers quickly find themselves ill-equipped for hardships and dangers not faced for centuries. Perils loom at every turn in this world of loss, anguish, filth, and sweat. 

Foreigners in their own land, can they survive and adapt? Is it even possible for these modern transplants to carve an existence from this foul and odorous place in time? 

Stephen Mason will find a way or die trying.

A good time travel story

Passengers on a flight are flipped back to 1720 by a strange storm. Their attempts to cope with the situation and a lucky find describe most if the novel. Any more information might be a spoiler. this is an easy and fun read. Although the time travelers fare better than one would expect, one will enjoy this book. The ending sort of hints that this is a stand alone novel, but it could be set up for a sequel.

Better than I thought

It's the Twilight zone meets the Final Countdown. Surprising ending. Once I started listening, I didn't stop.

Incredible!

I was gripped by this one from the very beginning, what a story! Shame there wasn't much more to the ending but still made for a very memorable listen.

Time Travel

It was ok... I like the idea of modern people going back in time and finding how useless they are...., but I found this one a little rushed felt like many of the characters were more convenient for pushing the story forward quickly for example the history expert. Could of been a nice series
