Title: Crossing the Rubicon
Author: R.C. Richter

Genre: time travel adventure
Synopsis from Goodreads:
What started out as a simple weekend trip exploring the Chungo caves, became a journey which took them back 275 years in time, had them cross multiple continents, and stretched them to their limits. Discover how they survived with just the clothes on their backs, some limited technology and their wits and resolve. In a world without computers, without the basic items we use each day, could you survive?
I found that the characters in this novel were only developed through what they did throughout. This stems directly from the way that the story was written. In journal entries one doesn’t stop to describe individuals and fill you in on who people are and what happened their pasts. This story took place fully in the characters’ present. That said, the main character was much more developed as they tell the story, therefore you get to know them much more intimately.
Overall, this was an intriguing read. I enjoyed reading it.
