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".

REVIEW By VICKIE:
Time To Shine - Jo Elliott
This is a great story going back to ancient times. It has much to for us to learn. We can learn new things about the old times.
Ally, Josh and Brendan are awesome characters. Young but anxious to learn and are very brave in their efforts.
The characters are all well-developed and it is easy to feel their emotions.
The story flows well from chapter to chapter and is easy to follow along.
I recommend this to all those who enjoy readings of ancient times and love a good adventure.
I give this story a literary rating of 5/5
