The exciting and mysterious adventures of Andrew, our time-travelling hero, continues in the recently released Volume 5, Andrew Ashton and the Search for the Mysterious Box, available to purchase for your reading pleasure.
The plot of this tale centers around a mysterious box at the bottom of the Charles River. Readers will recall that in Volume 3, Andrew Ashton and the Pirate’s Raid, Andrew was sitting with Lizzie by the Charles River in the 18th century after visiting her family’s grave site. As they prepared to leave, Andrew had flung his jacket over his shoulder, unaware that the mysterious box he used for travelling through time had slipped part way out of the pocket. In one unfortunate, irretrievable moment, as a result of moving the jacket, the box slid all the way out and tumbled down the bank into the murky water of the Charles River. There it lay, inactive, for two and a half centuries!
Whenever Andrew thought of the mysterious box he knew to be buried deep in the mire of the Charles River, he believed it would never be found. However, when a stranger from Boston informs him that the box has been recovered, Andrew realizes he must act quickly. Eric McDermott, the British Intelligence Agent, had impressed upon him the serious consequences should this box, with the magnificent power it held, get into the wrong hands.
Andrew is joined in his search for the mysterious box by Casey Blain, a first-year archaeological student at Boston University. As Andrew and Casey appear mere steps from recovering their prize, unforeseen events draw them back into a time when the first battles of the American Revolution were fought.
They are taken to this significant point in time in the formation of a nation and its struggle to be set free. Andrew is successful in his search but his subsequent adventures are dangerous - and the outcome uncertain!
I hope you enjoy this 5th novel in the series as it brings history to life and new adventures for our favourite time traveller.
