The Time Travel Trailer by Karen Musser Nortman Excerpt

$2.99 or FREE for Prime Members


A 1937 vintage camper trailer half hidden in weeds catches Lynne McBriar’s eye when she is visiting an elderly friend Ben. Ben eagerly sells it to her and she just as eagerly embarks on a restoration. But after each remodel, sleeping in the trailer lands Lynne and her daughter Dinah in a previous decade—exciting, yet frightening. Glimpses of their home town and ancestors fifty or sixty years earlier is exciting and also offers some clues to the mystery of Ben’s lost love. But when Dinah makes a trip on her own, separating herself from her mother by decades, Lynne has never known such fear. It is a trip that may upset the future if Lynne and her estranged husband can't team up to bring their daughter back.


We returned to the porch, phones arranged on the table. Kurt put his head in his hands and then looked at me. "But where else would she possibly go? I mean, if she went on her own? I know she's been rebellious and thinks we're stupid about most things, but I don't think she has the confidence to strike out completely on her own, do you?"
I had to admit that I couldn't see that either. "I guess you never know."
Kurt stared out at the back yard. "Maybe she's hiding in your old trailer," he said, a hopeless little smile on his face.
I almost choked on my swallow of iced tea. "Kurt! You don't think…" He could see the alarm on my face.
He was still smiling. "Wouldn't that be just the ticket? If she's been hiding out there the whole time?"
"You don't understand! Oh, no—I never thought after the last trip —that would be awful…"
"What are you talking about?" He had stood up, about to go out to the trailer.
I caught myself. “Let’s check the trailer first.”
