J. C. Allenabout this book: Imagine what you would do if you found the key to a time machine. That is exactly what Alex Williamson, a twelve-year-old girl on her way home from swim practice, did. Although she didn't know what the strange, metallic, light-weight box was at first, she carried it home to her father. Rick, a 36-year-old computer programmer, helped her decipher the strange writings contained on it with help from experts in geology, anthropology, ancient cultures and languages. They soon discover the mystery to the box and find a map and key to a time machine within.
The time machine's creator had hidden the box in hopes of protecting time from his former assistant, Ferdinand Bergamiser (AKA Bignose). The family is confronted with the fact that Bignose had altered the time machine to prevent entering a certain time. Within this time, he had set in motion a process to destroy Earth in the future. He hid four memory crystals which unlock this era in four separate parts of history and left riddles as to where each resided.
The Williamsons have to solve these riddles, then travel back to ancient Rome, 17th century Salem, Massachusetts, 1963 Dallas, Texas and finally to witness Jesus' birth in order to recover the crystals. They learn the truth behind several long-held beliefs or mysteries of history along the way in a wild adventure through time. They then face off with the evil man from the future for the fate of the world.
