Publisher's Description

The Time Thriller Trilogy delivers gripping, fast-paced mystery that intrigues and captivates through hours, seconds, and centuries. A long history of strange disappearances and unexplainable occurrences leave clues that the town of Fawlt Line may actually sit on a time fault—a portal to alternate times and unexpected time travels—a twist of fate that puts all of Fawlt Line’s citizens in serious danger. Will they find the faith to hold on to the town and time where they belong? Can truth prevail? Elizabeth thought volunteering at the Fawlt Line Retirement Center would be fun, but she quickly has second thoughts. While most of the residents are wonderful, there’s something about the place—and a strangely familiar man in a wheelchair—that gives her the creeps. When people start disappearing from the center, leaving behind cryptic notes, Elizabeth is convinced the time fault is involved. Her own time-travel adventure may be the key to solving the mystery, but can she convince the sheriff she’s telling the truth before more people disappear?

Author Bio

Paul McCusker is the author of The Mill House, Epiphany, The Faded Flower and several Adventures in Odyssey programs. Winner of the Peabody Award for his radio drama on the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer for Focus on the Family, he lives in Colorado Springs with his wife and two children.


Memory’s Gate is the third book in a trilogy written by Paul McCusker. Although not Christian or spiritual in its theme, there is reference to God’s will that all of us must be subject to, especially when trying to answer perplexing questions about life.

The story centers on a sixteen-year-old teenager, Elizabeth Forde, who volunteers at the Fawlt Line Retirement Center and almost immediately becomes involved in the mysterious disappearances and deaths of some of the residents. She meets Doug Hall, the handsome maintenance man, Adam Hounslow, the uncooperative father of the town’s sheriff (Richard Hounslow) and George Betterman, a gray-bearded man in a wheelchair who says little to anyone.

In a museum built by one Malcolm Dubbs, called the Historical Village, Adam disappears, sending the staff and his son the sheriff into a panic. Thus starts the search and subsequent disappearances of other residents and even some of their belongings. Elizabeth and her boyfriend, Jeff, become civilian sleuths in trying to solve the mystery. In doing so, Elizabeth almost loses her life in a fire but is rescued by a surprising figure, which later puts the entire adventure into a conclusion that satisfies both the characters in the story as well as the reader.

This is a mildly interesting, fast-paced book that borders on fantasy, as the subject of time travel is referred to over and over. Also, there are references to characters and plots from the previous two books, which made it at times confusing (if the other two haven’t been read previously). The style is simple and straight-forward, and character development in minimal, given the book’s brevity. There are very few religious references, making more of a general market, rather than Christian book. For an afternoon of light reading, this book will do the job. – Anita Tiemeyer,
