Product description

Product Description

Seattle, 1941. Grace Vandenberg, 21, is having a bad day. Minutes after Pearl Harbor is attacked, she learns that her boyfriend is a time traveler from 2000 who has abandoned her for a future he insists they cannot share. Determined to save their love, she follows him into the new century. But just when happiness is within her grasp, she accidentally enters a second time portal and exits in 1918. Distraught and heartbroken, Grace starts a new life in the age of Woodrow Wilson, silent movies, and the Spanish flu. She meets her parents as young, single adults and befriends a handsome, wounded Army captain just back from the war. In THE SHOW, the sequel to THE MINE, Grace finds love and friendship in the ashes of tragedy as she endures the trial of her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Northwest Passage Series 10 February 2016

I have read all John Heldt’s Northwest Passage “Time Travel” stories. Rather than provide a synopsis on each and every one, I’m instead going to simply state my assessment of these novels as a whole and include it as a review on each one of the of the series.

Every story is about traveling into the past and setting the stage for the future. If you like time-travel, you’ll love this series. If I had to pick my favorite, for now I think “The Journey” would be it, but that’s just me.

Every story is a stand-alone novel. Occasionally there will be a subtle reference to one of the other novels, but that too is sufficiently explained to make it germane to the current story without requiring one to read any of the other stories.

Because every story is stand-alone, they don’t have to be read in any order. However, reading them in the sequence of being written will enable the reader to make most of the “connections” no matter how subtle they are. (“The Journey” is the only one that doesn’t appear tie in to the others – unless I missed something.)

What impresses me the most is how the author managed to tell five different stories, yet have them tie together in so many subtle ways. How was he able to keep track of everything? And, bless his heart, he doesn’t introduce too many characters to keep track of (I hate getting most of the way through a novel only to wonder “who’s Fred?” when he shows up long after being forgotten by myself).

The only “negative?” comment I might make is that the protagonists exercise “wisdom” way beyond their age when dealing with others. And, that’s not really a negative, but a wish that I might have shown such wisdom at that age instead of “acquiring” it the hard way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Popcorn, Potato Chips and John Heldt Time Travel Novels 22 June 2013
By DrPat - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What do they all have in common, popcorn, potato chips and John Heldt time-travel novels? To quote an old friend, "they're ever so 'more-ish'." As soon as you finish, you want more.

So I launched from _The Mine_ straight into _The Show_, and learned not only how Grace managed to stay with Joel and travel from 1941 to 2000. She also must cope with her own diversion in time, when the now-mother of twins and happy wife of Joel Smith walks into the restroom of a newly-rebuilt theater in 2002 and emerges - alone - in 1918 Seattle.

For Grace, the need to return to 2002 is urgent. She knows the theater in which the time portal rests will be completely destroyed by fire in a few short months. If she cannot find the combination that triggers the portal before then, she'll be stuck in 1918. I also found fascinating the woman's different handling of her bleak knowledge of the future. Unlike her husband when he traveled to the past, Grace finds reason to inform those she knows will suffer in the coming months.

And it appears that there are time portals all over the northwest, because I have just started reading the third in the series, _The Journey_, in which a trip down a dark staircase in 2010 ends in a chance for a woman in her late forties to revisit the world of her adolescence.

I sincerely hope there will still be more to come - popcorn, potato chips and John Heldt time-travel novels!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Second Act 12 March 2013
By kattwmn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really loved "The Mine" so jumped right in to this sequel. At first I was a bit skeptical as it starts off slow and feeling repetitive, but if you stick with it there's a payoff. This is another winner; although I don't feel it deserves the 5 stars that I gave to "The Mine," I'd like to give it 4.5 stars which isn't an option -- so I'm rounding up in appreciation of self-published/low-cost Kindle authors who do a really outstanding job of writing *and* editing their work such that the end result feels like something that could easily be printed by a major publishing house.

PS: I don't write plot synopsis reviews. This isn't a book report and why would you want to spend time reading long reviews and spoilers instead of the book itself? :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars The Show 17 January 2015

The Show by John A. Heldt
This novel is about the time travelers, Grace and Joel.
They have become separated in time as Grace searches for and finds the clues to bring her back to him. Many of the same people in the series make an appearance in this book.
Easy to keep track of who is who. Really liked the clues she remembered him speaking of and how it all plays a part at the show they see together.
She then tracks down others and thinks she will never get back to his time when she is at the show and the same show will be playing, not the one on the billboard. She may have another chance but it depends on colors.
What a mystery this one was to solve, right up to the very end. Good tale. Very detailed descriptions of things used in each of the time frames.
Wished I had read this series in the order but still a really good read.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel to The Mine 3 June 2016
By JBronder Book Reviews - Published on

We return to Grace after Joel left her in The Mine to return to 2000. Grace cannot see herself living without Joel so she goes searching for clues and finds her way to 2000 and reunites with Joel. Things are going well for the both of them when one night at the movies Grace finds herself in 1918. At first she has a hard time adjusting but then she finds her great uncle, an aunt that raised her after her parents died, and her parents. Then she meets the soldier next door and they start a relationship. But she has a hard time since she wants to correct things from her past but yearns to be with Joel in the future.

Grace was bound a determined to follow Joel to the future and I loved how she looked at all the technology she encountered. Of course she finds herself back in time and she is not very happy about it. But she does from her great uncle and after a lot of convincing he takes her in. I loved seeing her parents especially after she lost them before meeting Joel. I felt bad for Grace but she is a strong woman and I am glad of how the book ended.

This is a great sequel to The Mine. The only thing I can complain about it the pacing of the book is a little off where it seems to drag. I really liked the story and enjoyed how this one ended.

I received The Show a long time ago for free in exchange for an honest review. I’m sorry that it has taken so long to get this posted.
