Book Description

17 Mar 2012
“A brilliant teenage time travel drama that manages to be both intelligent and action-packed. Leads to a climax that takes your breath away...” This is a special paperback 'double-pack' of the first two Touchstone stories. One touch... and you're who knows when? Rachel: the dirt poor girl brought up by her single parent father. Danny: the arrogant rich kid who has everything his wealthy parents can afford. Two History students who wouldn’t normally mix, but whose lives become entwined when an old gravestone catapults them back in time. In part 1 (The Sins of the Fathers), Rachel and Danny find themselves in 1912 and explore their city’s dark past, a gritty, violent, gaslit world of real danger, where they try to prevent the murder of a teenage girl at the hands of her abusive father. But they find that every action has an unforeseen consequence that can ripple through generations. In part 2 (Family at War), Rachel and Danny deal with the catastrophic fallout of their previous encounter with Amy Parker and now race to locate her during the 1940 Blitz, becoming caught up in the nightly German bombings of Birmingham and their chilling aftermath. “A really cool concept that rattles along like an express train. It's never too long before something interesting happens, so it's turn, turn, turn...” “I have read a few time travel books but this one really got to me. I thought it was going to be a typical teenage romance but it certainly wasn't. I had to buy the second book and can't wait for the third. Absolutely gripping...”

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down 22 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had read Andy's script he had turned into a feature "Arjun and Alison" so I knew very well that he could write but I didn't expect to be so blown away as I was with this one. The detail was brilliant. I have a feeling Andy went all out on his research on the history of the town and I felt I could go and visit and really see these places. I love the characters and simply adored this book.
I read it in a day and am about to order the next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great start. 16 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit I love any books that have time travel in them, and this one didn't disappoint either. To make things even better, was to get to the end of this book knowing there were more to come. :) I ended up purchasing all 5 of the books and reading them one after the other over the space of a couple of days. :)
Imagine two students, in a graveyard doing a project and ending up travelling in time. I won't spoil the storyline, but will say there are twists and turns, romance and some hard decisions to make...all totalling up to a jolly good read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read nevertheless 26 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Why the end of these books - and I am talking about most of the time-travel ones that I read from here - have the end brought me to such an anti-climax? I thought about it a lot, there is nothing significant that I can put my finger on it and say 'see, this is what you've should've write' but the truth is I was left unsatisfied (now I am talking about this book in particular). Like a love story with no happy ending or worse, one with no ending that leaves tons of unanswered questions. I hoped that Rachel's last trip to the past will give poor Charlie some well deserved 'treats' but no. But that's just me and I might be too mean, as I trully enjoy this series.
I do hope the author takes some time to read through these reviews which - although not professional - are a valuable peak in the 'market's mind, likes and dislikes.

The man who wrote this story was certainly not as good a Time Travel writer like the other authors I have read, I stuck it out to the end but I have read better books. Read more
