In this clean time-travel whodunit, a middle-aged coffee-shop owner always wondered what his life would have been like if he’d stayed in town the day his college fiancee disappeared, the victim of an unsolved crime.
One morning he wakes up 20 years earlier and finds himself a student at OU in Norman again on the day she died. In a journey that takes months, he stumbles over people connected to Kim’s disappearance and puzzles over connecting the dots. He plays on a baseball team, something he’d dropped out of the first time, and discovers what it’s like to be a Christian pastor.
Can he find some answers about Kim and about his own life? Or prevent Kim’s death? And if he succeeds in changing history, what happens to his beloved wife and kids.
Read an Excerpt:
Darkness pulled at John, weighed him down like an anchor. Tendrils of knowledge and light penetrated his subconscious, lifting him toward the noise hammering against his mind.
Buzz, buzz, buzz, followed by heavy silence, not the usual Dora the Explorer from the living room television.
Would today be any better, or would Renee still not look him in the eyes?
The musty smell of dirty laundry wafted to his nose. Twisted covers.
He threw the covers aside and swung his feet to the floor. Why hadn’t Renee or the kids awakened him?
Buzz, buzz, buzz.
He shut off the alarm.
He sat at the edge of the bed and looked around in stunned silence.
Heart pounding, he tried to make sense of it. This had to be a dream. But dreams were never this real, the smells never this strong, the colors never this bright. He squeezed his eyes shut, but he knew nothing would change. This was real.
He sat on a twin bed in a small apartment. Not just any apartment. His old Village Square efficiency apartment, the place he lived during the fall of 1992.
