THis is a cross between a coming of age, and a fish out of water story and works really well on both fronts.
A mature woman, recently mourning the death of her husband, travels back in time to her youth, and meets her younger self at a pivotal point in her development. I liked the way this was handled as the two-selves become friends, and the older version begins to shape the younger, with the benefit of hindsight.
I also liked the way she quickly adapted to the new reality of her life and became independant and functional in her new present. A place to live, a job, respect within her community for her contributions, and finally even love were quickly obtained so that the focus of the book wasnt diluted away from the main thesis: correcting some of the early mistakes of her life.
This story found a way to be heartwarming without being smarmy.
In short, a well-written, cleverly plotted story that will keep you turning the pages. highly recommended.
Michelle and her three classmates fell back into their old friendships as if the intervening years had never been. The spur of the moment night tour of the long abandoned Franklin mansion was to be filled with ghostly fun. But Michelle suddenly and inexplicably couldn’t find her friends – it seemed she had somehow entered a portal in the old house and had been whisked back to 1979...
Having no idea where she was, how she had arrived or what to tell people she saw, her gradual realisation to what had happened saw Michelle devastated; when her searching to return to her own time came to nothing she was destitute. But she knew she needed to adapt to the circumstances she found herself in – she took a job as secretary at her old High School, interviewed by her old principal. But when Michelle met up with herself, the much younger Shelly Preston, things began to get complicated.
As Michelle settled into a daily routine, she felt contentment in helping the young people through their senior year – the closeness and caring between herself and Shelly was gratifying. But she wondered about changing the course of history. Her knowledge of what was ahead created turmoil within her – but she knew she was able to save those she loved from fate. What would she do? The temptation was great for this time traveller to intervene…
What a great read The Journey by John A. Heldt was! Light hearted and entertaining but also tinged with sadness, the courage and tenacity of the main character was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s writing style and look forward to reading another in the Northwest Passage series. Highly recommended.
I began to wonder, what if something like this could really happen...where you are mysteriously taken back to a certain point in your life that things went terribly wrong and sent your life in the wrong direction, but now you had the opportunity to right those wrongs? Would you? Should you? Michelle had to make that decision, and live with the consequences of whatever decision she chose to take. I will not spoil this story, it was beautifully written, held my attention to the very last page and made me think about the trajectory of my own life.
I will be sharing this book with my dearest friends.
