Summary

Weeks after his parents disappear on a hike, engineer Adam Carson, 27, searches for answers. Then he discovers a secret website and learns his mom and dad are time travelers stuck in the past. Armed with the information he needs to find them, Adam convinces his younger siblings to join him on a rescue mission to the 1880s. 

While Greg, the adventurous middle brother, follows leads in the Wild West, Adam, journalist Natalie, and high school seniors Cody and Caitlin do the same in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Like the residents of the bustling steel community, all are unaware of a flood that will destroy the city on May 31, 1889. 

In River Rising, the first novel in the Carson Chronicles series, five young adults find love, danger, and adventure as they experience America in the age of bustle dresses, gunslingers, and robber barons.

Interesting read.

Any additional comments?

I have not read anything by this author so I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It has a bit of romance, adventure, shoot outs, survival and it is based around family. I liked how the sibling got together to go and find their parents. However, I found the beginning hard to believe, since they did not question the time travel consept more then I would have liked, but things happen quite quickly and we get into their adventure early on in the book.

This audiobook is long but it is intriguing and you want to know if they ever find their parents, what happens to them and what decisions they make.

I would highly recommend this book.

The narrator did a great job in voicing the characters, so I knew who was saying what.
