Publisher's Summary

Arizona, December 1943. After surviving perilous six-month journeys to 1889 and 1918, the Carsons, five siblings from the present day, seek a respite in their home state. While Adam and Greg settle down with their Progressive Era brides, Natalie and Caitlin start romances with wartime aviators, and Cody befriends a Japanese family in an internment camp. 

The time travelers regroup, bury some ghosts, and continue their search for their missing parents. Then old problems return, new ones emerge, and a peaceful hiatus becomes a race for survival. In Indian Paintbrush, the sequel to River Rising and the Memory Tree, several young adults find love and adventure as they navigate the home front during the height of world war II.

Another great addition to the series

The Carson siblings are still in search of their time traveling parents.. this time, they are in 1940's Arizona, during the war.

With Greg, Adam and Cody at drafting age, they have to be very careful of how they conduct themselves. Both Natalie and Caitlin find their true loves, however, not all is a happy ending, and the past and past relationships creep back into their lives.


Their parents are in the same time stream, but can't find their kids..

One thing about John A Heldt's books are the accuracy of history, which I really enjoy.

Allyson Voller does a great job of narrations.

I really enjoyed this book of the series and can't wait for the next one

Interesting historical time travel novel!!

I really enjoyed the time travel story idea for this book. It was historically correct and the Carson family were easy to love. There were some points in the book that I wanted to scream at one of the siblings to just stop talking or getting other people involved. It just seems it was a bit much to consider taking a whole family of Japanese from an internment camp during 1944, back to 2017. There were several "unwise" choices or mistakes that the family made, but all in all, It was a great book and I was sad to finish it. I am still wondering whether they ever find their parents, but was glad it finished with hope and some semblance of happiness for the Carson children.
