Just a so-so read for me. I skimmed the last half of the book.
Adam Talbot was only six when his mother disappeared from their home without a trace. He's certain she's alive. When he is 24-years-old he decides to find her and ends up a stranger in a strange time. With only the clothes on his back and a few well-chosen tools, Adam sets out to find his mother with the only compass he has - a six-hundred-year-old letter.
