A brother with a mysterious life-threatening condition! The Baxters need to find their uncle for help, but he's lost in time. If they don't locate him, their brother might die.
What started as a vacation with their uncle became an adventure these three English schoolchildren could never have imagined. Who would have thought Uncle Archie had built a time machine? If they don't learn how to work it, how can they find him because he has vanished and is somewhere back in 1940?
Teamwork becomes all-important because an unforeseen event wrecks their plans when they finally arrive in wartime England, and they must cope with new lives as evacuees. Even worse, if they can't find their uncle, they will be stuck in the past forever, and one of them will certainly die!
If you enjoy books like 'The Secret Lake' by Karen Inglis or 'The Time Hunters Saga' by Carl Ashmore, you will love this story. This is the first stand-alone book in the 'Stuck' series blending adventure, history, and time travel.
