THE TIME TOURISTS
Danger. Romance. Time Travel . . .
As four-year-old Imogen flipped through the dusty photo album, gazing into the faded monochrome faces of her grandmother's somber family—relatives with funny names like Aunt Ada and Uncle Paul and Aunt Phyllis and Uncle Gordy, and second cousins Percy and Viola from Missoula—all of a sudden the universe tilted and for a brief instant she found herself transported to the place and time within one of the pictures.
One of only a handful of people—that she is aware of—who can time travel through photos, she establishes Dead Relatives, Inc. to help people recover lost items or unearth the stories and secrets of friends and relatives from the past.
Step into time with Imogen Oliver in this first book in the Dead Relatives, Inc. series as she investigates a young girl that ran away from home with her boyfriend in 1967 and never returned, and then as she travels back to the turn of the 20th century to locate a set of missing stereoscopic glass plates that hold a mysterious connection to her own life.
