Publisher's Summary

A 1937 vintage camper trailer half hidden in weeds catches Lynne McBriar's eye when she is visiting an elderly friend, Ben. Ben eagerly sells it to her and she just as eagerly embarks on a restoration. But after each remodel, sleeping in the trailer lands Lynne and her daughter Dinah in a previous decade - exciting, yet frightening. Glimpses of their home town and ancestors 50 or 60 years earlier is exciting and also offers some clues to the mystery of Ben's lost love. But when Dinah makes a trip on her own, separating herself from her mother by decades, Lynne has never known such fear. It is a trip that may upset the future if Lynne and her estranged husband can't team up to bring their daughter back.

This has a lot to recommend it!

What made the experience of listening to The Time Travel Trailer the most enjoyable?

The nostalgia factor. Escaping back to when things were supposedly so much simpler snd better. Valerie Gilbert's narration fit this book very well.


What did you like best about this story?

This was written by Karen Musser Nortman who is / was a History teacher. She brings back each era or decade with descriptions of dress, speech and important social events. Very enjoyable!


What does Valerie Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Valerie Gilbert's narration is exceptional. Not over the top, like some narrators. Her work did NOT detract attention from the story. A positive!


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nostalgic. Whether it was a simpler time, I can't say. I recall turmoil in each of the decades visited by the characters. the Depression, Civil Rights, etc. I'm sure that families today face similar challenges. I saw mention in another review that this was a YA book. And it is appropriate to that audiences, but it should appeal to adults too.


Any additional comments?
