Fresh off their first time-travel adventure with their eccentric Uncle Daniel, Tom and Becky journey to Palmyra in 1830 to witness the first printing of the Book of Mormon. But when Daniel defends Joseph Smith, and is then called to go on a mission, he decides to send Tom and Becky forward in time to the present day. But he mistakenly sends them just a few hours ahead. Now they’re stranded in 19th-century Palmyra, with no money, no food, and nowhere to stay.
But that soon becomes the least of their problems. When Tom comes to the aid of Emma Smith, big trouble—in the form of an anti-Mormon and a crooked sheriff—follows. It’s the kind of trouble that could keep them in the 19th century permanently.
This second novel in the thrilling Time Travelers in Church History series takes young readers through some of the most fascinating and exciting events in LDS Church history and is a thoroughly entertaining way to learn more about our storied past.
