When Adrian Shelborne's father disappears, he has no idea where his search for his father will eventually take him. Gifted with a set of mysterious Qpods, Adrian discovers that he needs to look for a when, not just a where. He sets out to find his father and tours history's greatest moments with his friend Dave Dryden. Dave is a linguist that specializes in Latin and Greek but knows several other languages as well. When traveling in the past, it is good to have someone who can speak the language.

From official release/information:

Product Description: When physicist Michael Shelborne mysteriously vanishes, his son Shel discovers that he had constructed a time travel device. Fearing his father may be stranded in time-or worse-Shel enlists the aid of Dave MacElroy, a linguist, to accompany him on the rescue mission.

Their journey through history takes them from the enlightenment of Renaissance Italy through the American Wild West to the civil-rights upheavals of the 20th century. Along the way, they encounter a diverse cast of historical greats, sometimes in unexpected situations. Yet the elder Shelborne remains elusive.

And then Shel violates his agreement with Dave not to visit the future. There he makes a devastating discovery that sends him fleeing back through the ages, and changes his life forever.
