Summary

Ten insane days. One miraculous opportunity to re-write the past.

"If you lived through the 1980s and love time-travel novels, you'll struggle to find a more addictive read than Pearson's latest gem." (Joanna James)

In May 1987, Jackie Benton received a heartbreaking phone call from her boyfriend, Sean Hardy, bringing an end to their five-year relationship. He’d fallen for a fellow student at Exeter University.

Sean and Jackie would never see each other again.

Thirty-three years later, Sean returns to his home town. There, he inadvertently discovers what became of Jackie Benton.

That discovery instigates a series of events, culminating in a miraculous journey back in time - only days before a catastrophic event in 1988 destroyed Jackie’s life. Unbelievably, Sean has been gifted a chance to befriend his first love and steer her away from certain tragedy.

However, Sean faces one major obstacle - Jackie is an angsty youth, and he’s old enough to be her father. Then, there’s the challenge of keeping his true identity a secret while navigating life in '80s Britain.

With time against him, can Sean connect with his one-time love and make amends for the pain his younger self caused, or will the same tragic history repeat itself?

He does it again

Keith Pearson has yet to write a book that I've failed to finish. His character development is brilliant and the story's are spot on. He hits that nostalgic cord with me especially on this book as I've also collected all the now albums until 86 that is, the cars the shops, sweets etc he really has done his homework. Keep it up for an indy author he is putting lots of others to shame.

Really enjoyed this.

Really enjoyed this. And I didn't see the end unfolding the way it did.
Would recommend. It's not super sci-fiy, but it is a great, lengthy story.

Easy listen

What if you could go back to your teenage years but as an adult- and do it all again. This is a tale of time travel.... the choice's we make and what happens when we have a chance to make things right. At first i did think some of the 80’s references were a bit trite and overdone. I found myself thinking, just how many 80’s products can you place in one paragraph? Not great literature, but definitely light relief. If you didn’t live through the 80’s I doubt you will find this particularly interesting, but for those of us who were “there”, this is an enjoyable romp through our history.

A clever plot and enjoyable listen

I am an 80’s child so I loved the nostalgia of the main character travelling back in time. The characters were likeable (except the obvious).

It was a nice comfortable listen and I was looking forward to what the ending would be.
