Would we be willing to do "anything" for the ones we love? This story by Michael Baron takes that question to a whole different level.
Just days before their wedding, Ken has the bizarre opportunity to travel back in time and see what Melissa's childhood was like. What he witnessed was so terrible that he chose to go back a second time and change her history. Little did he realize that this choice would alter their very lives, and in fact their entire future.
While the story of time travel and altering history is far fetched, there is a much deeper underlying question that we could ask ourselves. How much would we truly be willing to sacrifice for others? Would we be willing to gamble our own future and happiness to ensure that someone we love is spared from difficult times?
This is a great book that captured my attention from the very first, and I will definitely be checking out other novels by Michael Baron.
