Book Description

In 1996 Tony Harrison is an Observer in the Fleet Air Arm and is flying Sea King helicopters on exercise in the Northern Atlantic. Lieutenant Charles Bradshaw is flying combat missions against the Japanese Navy in his F4F-4 Wildcat over the Pacific Ocean in 1942. One day their worlds collide and the adventure begins.

The war against the Japanese is raging across the Pacific, but on a small Island, inhabited by simple Polynesian natives, something far more sinister is afoot. A US plane spotter mysteriously disappears. Father Matthew, an Irish missionary, is cast out from the only village to fight for survival alone in the jungle, but quickly meets an ally in the form of Frank, an American enigma who takes the Holy Father under his wing. A young girl is left stranded on a deserted beach after the Australian sailors that rescued her from Java are all killed in a Japanese bombing raid and finally, the local fishermen are starting to disappear as the Japanese Army moves across the island.

The scene is set for an explosive sequence of events that will have far reaching consequences across time itself. Amidst the despair and treachery, this unlikely team must fight together to stop history being re-written and to guarantee their own safety, but time and again they will be thwarted. Will they get a second chance?

Back in 1996, at home in Cornwall Laura is unsure of her feelings for the man she has been dating for three months. Her quiet life as a Teaching Assistant is turned upside-down as she learns of Tony’s accident and she starts to discover her true feelings as she co-exists between her work and his bed-side. Together with his doctor, Mike Phillips, she must unravel the mystery to discover a strategy that will bring him home.

‘Time and Again’ is the first novel by Ian Weaver in the ‘Harry’ Harrison trilogy and will take you on a journey of war, love, happiness and despair. Time itself will become the enemy until they realise that ‘Sometimes you have to go back in order to move forward.’

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done! December 15, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will be going to work tomorrow on very little sleep as I stayed up much too late finishing "Time and Again."

It's the great story of a World War II American fighter pilot and a modern day Royal Navy helicopter pilot -- and the bond they share despite the decades that separate them.

I won't try to recap everything here, but I can say, without a doubt, that this story is full of twists and turns that will keep you reading until the very end. Then you'll be looking forward to the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of twists and turns November 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoy a story that is unpredictable, one that doesn't telegraph every turn of the plot so thoroughly in advance that the story is obvious before it unfolds.

Time and Again certainly provided many surprises. From the moment the main character floats back in time to 1942, you think you know where this story is headed, but you don't.

Time and Again is a well written exploration of modern and WWII military operations. The author, with many years in the RAF, certainly demonstrates his knowledge down to the details. I enjoyed the gritty realism of the opening helicopter crash, as well as other action sequences in the book. The heros and heroines are likable, the villains are generally despicable-- all in keeping with the genre.

This book is a great read if you enjoy military action, thrillers, mysteries or time travel novels.

TIME AND AGAIN

IAN WEAVER

This novel is an entertaining and intriguing mixture of action, war, romance and science fiction. It reminded me of the work of Christopher Priest.

Weaver lives up to his name by weaving a complex narrative which ranges over time, space and personality. The characters face challenges and change because of them. I liked the fact that both his heroes and villains are entertaining and multi-dimensional.

The first chapter gives a lot of technical detail. Personally, this is not what I like but soon Weaver's narrative gusto took over and I was as caught up in events as much as his protagonist.

I shall look forward to his new novel: Frozen in Time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Novel June 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found out about this book through a recommendation of author Stephen King who wrote a recent time travel novel "11/22/63". It is a slow starter but a page turner thereafter. Check it out. Check out the Stephen King time travel novel too! Both books give a different spin than the usual on time travel plot stories. Enough said!

More About the Author

I was born in Louth, Lincolnshire in 1960. Educated in Grantham, England I joined the Royal Navy in 1979 as a Seaking Observer in the Fleet Air Arm. In 1989 I transferred to the Royal Air Force flying as a Navigator in the Tornado F3. I left the service in 1997 following a flying accident and continued to work for the RAF in a flight simulator. I now reside in Lincoln, England working full time on my writing career.

Time and Again is my first novel and draws on some of my many experiences in the Armed forces. Although a work of fiction and fantasy, much of the book is true to life and factually accurate. Readers may be surprised to learn that the first few chapters were written before my flying accident and yet there are striking similarities between the fictional and actual circumstances, events and injuries. Now working on the sequel, I am far more wary of the way I treat my hero!

I enjoy writing action adventure novels; real 'Boys Own' stuff, though there is a fair bit of romance thrown in so plenty of interest for the girls as well. Time and Again is the first book in a trilogy with the sequel complete and recently published in Kindle format with a paperback version to follow shortly. The third book in the series is now complete and I plan to start working on the story of my flying accident (a short version can be found on my website).
