Tom and Beth’s time-slip romance faces more obstacles in this fast-paced sequel. Following on from the events in ‘Running Behind Time’ which saw 2020 Tom meet and fall in love with 1980s Beth, ‘Play For Time’ by Jan Turk Petrie takes the couple's lives into upheaval and uncertainty once more as the couple try to raise their very special child. With a helpful reminder of the story up to this point we are delivered straight into the middle of Beth and Tom’s lives once more as they try to raise their especially clever young son in obscurity, away from the curiosity of their neighbours and the every scrutinising gaze of the Guardians. On top of the time-slip themes we see a young family experiencing relatable challenges, from worrying about their child’s wellbeing and adjusting to life as new parents to trying to maintain their relationship with establishing their own home and working. With familiar names and faces returning to the plotline and as many questions raised as there are answers found, this is an interesting, detailed and well-written addition to the series. It would be interesting to see how life continues to pan out for the Brookes family.
