Have you ever wanted something do badly that you would do anything to get it? Set in modern times, twelve-year-old Tommy has but one desire in his life: to find his absent father. With the help of his best friend, Nick, they discover evidence that Tommy’s father is actually a time-traveler from England during the reign of Henry VIII! Together, they use the magical amulet they find in his mother’s forbidden box to travel to the year 1540 and look for him.
After being captured, held in the Tower of London by Henry’s soldiers and being chased by the evil Abraham, Tommy, Nick, and their teacher, Mr. Barnhart, travel across Tudor England in pursuit of the one person who Tommy has always longed to meet: his father, all the while evading Abraham and his family who will stop at nothing to take the magic back.
