The Mine by John A. Heldt

    Joel and his friend Adam are on their way to Seattle and along the way, having some adventures. Joel comes from a wealthy family where he's always had what he wanted. Never had to do without.  On their way back, they run into construction and after talking with one of the men there, decide to take a detour to a local gold mine that's been closed for years.  Adam just wants to go back and get his sunglasses and head for home. Joel though is a curious person. He decides to explore the mine and see if there is anything left inside.  What Joel doesn't expect is to walk into the mine while it's May 2000 and end up in May 1941. He's certain it's a dream but everything seems so very real.      Now Joel must learn to live in 1941.  By luck or design, he ends up living with the Carters and even meets his very young grandmother.  Joel's instinct is to save everyone from the heartache he knows is coming, but he decides to just watch things unfold. He never expected to fall in love while getting to know these people, but he did. Now he wonders if he'll ever see 2000 again.  

    An amazing story that is very well written. When I started this book, I thought, " another macho read." I couldn't have been more wrong. This book contains one of the most beautiful love stories I've ever read.  The time period and characters make for a very easy read. It's such a romantic story! I highly recommend this book to everyone.  There are several surprises in store for the reader. 

    I found no issues.

    I gave this one 4 out of 5 books because while it was terrific, it did seem to drag in some spots.
