Product Description

There's a rip in the blue umbrella, and time-and Chelsea-are slipping through!
Ches Cholmondeley saw his sister disappear. Now there are more mysteries: atomic clocks have lost a second, resulting in bizarre events from dropped casseroles to plane crashes. What's a brother to do?
Figure out a way to get his sister back, of course. But the situation is dire. Someone is stealing time, and if the thief isn't stopped, the world will end. And when he does learn how to mend the umbrella, Chas is torn, knowing that the very deed will save the world might also keep Chelsea from ever returning to it.
In this sequel to The Blue Umbrella, Ches learns a valuable lesson about love and family.

Publisher's Description

 

There’s a rip in the blue umbrella, and time—and Chelsea—are slipping through!
             One moment she was there, the next moment she was not, and Ches Cholmondeley was watching when it happened. And he learns of other mysterious goings-on: for three days in a row the world’s atomic clocks have lost a second, resulting in bizarre accidents ranging from dropped casseroles to plane crashes. Are these events related? What’s a brother to do?
            Figure out a way to get his sister back, of course. In search of answers, Ches befriends the local clockmaker, Myron Stinchcombe, who knows a lot about time, and seeks out Sky Porter, who knows a lot about, well, everything.
            But time is running out. And Ches is torn, knowing that the very deed that can save the world might also keep his sister from ever returning to it.

Mike Mason's novel The Violet Flash (sequel to The Blue Umbrella) finds twelve-year-old Ches Cholmondeley racing to stop a thief from literally stealing seconds off the clock. His sister Chelsea and their friends Zac and Iris help him along the way, but when Chelsea disappears into a gash in the blue umbrella, Ches is left scrounging for answers. Where did Chelsea go? How can he fix the umbrella’s tear? How can he stop the thief from stealing more time? With the help of Myron Stinchcombe and Sky Porter, owners of local shops that are anything but ordinary, Ches sets out to get his sister back, seal the rip in the umbrella, and restore the flow of time.

The Violet Flash shouldn't be read without first picking up a copy of The Blue Umbrella, but it is a fantastic story nonetheless. Mason is an expert wordsmith, and he weaves brilliant plot twists into a simple story to build engaging action. He creates interesting, believable characters, often wise beyond their years, and he places them in the midst of relatable struggles. Most impressive, though, is his ability to use symbolism to integrate faith deftly into the plot.

Though The Violet Flash is primarily a fantasy novel for pre-teens, it has the power to reach a much broader, more mature audience with its sincere spiritual insights. As Ches races against time, he struggles with much deeper and more personal issues: who he can trust, whether his comatose father deserves his love, and whether there is a God, to name a few. In this book, Mason brings to vividly colored light the biblical concept of a "new heaven and a new earth" (Rev. 21:1), and addresses difficult questions that are applicable to young and old alike. – Maria Martin, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
