Ally, Josh and Brendan are half siblings living in Australia who have a difficult situation to face at School and at home.  They have a special interest in the past as they have previously embarked on two time-travelling adventures with God's divine help.

Once again they embark on their latest time-travelling adventure into first century, ancient Syria.  On the road to Damascus the children meet the frightening Commander who is on a mission to find and punish anyone who disagrees with his religious views.  The children must quickly learn who can be trusted in this dystopian Village as they push back against the darkness and look for the truth.  In time, the children learn that ordinary people with extraordinary faith in God can have a monumental impact throughout the generations.  

With the help of biblical heroes of old, this coming of age story will help young people discover their own unique purpose and mission in life.  If you enjoy action-packed, suspenseful drama enveloped in cultural history, you are going to love "Time to Shine".

About the Author

Jo Elliott was born in Melbourne Australia, to Greek parents and has resided in the world's greatest city all her life. She left a career in industrial relations to pursue her greatest love which is introducing children to God's word. Joanna is married to Phillip Elliott, a devoted writer of fiction, and together they have traveled the world, opening their minds and their hearts to new peoples and languages. When she's not plotting her next teen book, Jo is trying to learn Italian, and is tinkering with an old family piano (which requires urgent tuning!)


Time to Shine is a combination of historical time travel and inspirational Christian fiction.

I enjoyed following Josh, Ally, and Brendan as they go to Biblical Syria and meet Saul, Ananias, Simon, and Judas. They learn more about Jesus and the government that is in place at the time. Josh is preparing for an essay he has to write for class and figured if God could send them there, he could learn about it first hand.

It was an interesting story but the dialect spoken along with the English translation slowed down the story a little and was a bit distracting. The descriptions of food, countryside, and customs added to the story and made it come alive. An inspirational and exciting read.

The end of the story wrapped up nicely and taught a lesson about family relationships and trust. I received a copy of the book and voluntarily choose to review it.
