Book Review-September Sky-John A Heldt

Saturday, February 14, 2015


This is the second book I've read by this author. The first was The Mine (Northwest Passage #1)and I loved it! I actually have all the rest of that series in my Kindle ready to read and I will get to them. When I saw that John Heldt had another series I jumped on it.

Time Travel is one of my favorite reads--add in a bit of romance and lots of action and danger and I'm hooked!! This book has it all and I can not recommend it enough. You will laugh and cry and pray for the characters portrayed. Chuck and Justin's lives change irrevocably as do many others--but how and why--I don't do spoilers! I think this is the start of another series at least I hope it is!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

When unemployed San Francisco reporter Chuck Townsend and his college-dropout son, Justin, take a cruise to Mexico in 2016, each hopes to rebuild a relationship after years of estrangement. But they find more than common ground aboard the ship. They meet a mysterious lecturer who touts the possibilities of time travel. Within days, Chuck and Justin find themselves in 1900, riding a train to Texas, intent on preventing a distant uncle from being hanged for a crime he did not commit. Their quick trip to Galveston, however, becomes long and complicated when they wrangle with business rivals and fall for two beautiful librarians on the eve of a hurricane that will destroy the city. Filled with humor, history, romance, and heartbreak, SEPTEMBER SKY follows two directionless souls on the adventure of a lifetime as they try to make peace with the past, find new purpose, and grapple with the knowledge of things to come.
