An enchanting, nostalgic tale of music, friendships, betrayal and determination. The author writes with a beautiful flowing style that carries the reader with them on short journeys back in time whilst combining present day life.
Jon a university lecturer and Caroline, an artist, live in London. Jon has discovered a passion for inventing and after a day's work loves nothing more than going downstairs in the basement of their home which he has converted into an inventing room. It’s during these retreats that his plans and ideas take shape. And it’s from this very workshop that Jon and Caroline’s magical mystery tours begin.
Jon’s timepen invention means the world is their oyster when it comes to what concerts to go back in time to see. They decide they prefer the ones just before the artist hits the big time as it gives a better atmosphere and smaller club setting. There’s just one problem; they can’t tell anyone about this unusual ability, not even their closest group of friends. After many successful trips using the timepen, disaster strikes following one concert in the past. A life-changing event, a new life and attempts to heal old wounds, but will a visitor offer an opportunity for everything to go back to how it was?
A wonderful read and the subject would appeal to a wide scope of readers. Highly recommended!
Caroline Highy, A LoveReadig Ambassador
If you could travel back in time to see any concert, who would you go to see? Caroline Tangent's husband, Jon has invented a time machine so they can visit iconic gigs in history: Woodstock, David Bowie, Edith Piaf in 1930's Paris - an inexhaustible bucket-list. But they can't tell anyone they're doing so. As their trips to the past continue, they begin to realise how it could change a devastating moment from their own past. But for Caroline, it's clear they don't want the same outcome. Until, on one trip, one of them does something unthinkable which will change both their lives forever.
