PBR Review: (by- Linda )

Although not my go-to kind of book, I always enjoy a good time travel story. I find this genre satisfying and intriguing. This story is clever and emotionally engaging, so you don't have to love time travel to enjoy it. Faye feels very real, likable, with problems that seem legitimate.

Her life is good; she is happy and loves her family but can't seem to get over the loss of her mother when she was seven years old. Then, she accidentally finds she can travel back in time and finds herself in 1977, the year before her mother died. As she gets to know her mother, her journey is emotionally charged and bittersweet, with beautiful mother-daughter dynamics. Who among us would not want to travel back in time for a few more moments with someone special. If you're not usually a time travel person but have been thinking about trying one, this may be a good one to start with.
