In this novel, Jack Naile was born in Chicago and moved to Northeast Georgia when their daughter Elizabeth was two years old.
Ellen Naile is Jack's wife. She too was born in Chicago and gave birth to both David and Elizabeth in that city.
James Naile is the son of David and is married to Mary Ann. He is the CEO of Horizon Industries. He lives in Central Wisconsin.
John Naile is the son of James and is married to Audrey. He is vice president of Horizon Industries.
In this story, John and Audrey are visiting his family. Neither are sure why they have been invited this time, with all the work that John has piled on his desk. But they are always willing to spend time with his parents.
James and Mary Ann have a special reason for the invitation. She takes Audrey into the kitchen to help prepare lunch. He leads John to the family bomb shelter.
John is aware of the three floor shelter, but James shows him a fourth level. Within the hidden area, James shows him some information that comes from the future and tells him that Jack and his family had gone through time. Then he goes to the television.
John wonders why they are watching As the World Turns, but the program is interrupted to announce the assassination of President Kennedy. James explains the circumstances and consequences of the assassination and other future events. Then they discuss the ethics of withholding such information from the authorities.
In 1993, Jack receives a copy of a 1903 magazine photograph showing a general store in Northern Nevada with the name Jack Naile on the sign.Read more ›
I hope that the family in this book is not based upon the authors' own. If it is, I hope to never encounter them in real life, as they are among the most ignorant people imaginable. The plot begins with the main character receiving a photograph that appears to be his family in the old west. Instead of seriously questioning the origin of the photo, they simply accept the fact that they will somehow be sent back through time and begin preparing for it.
I will not spoil any more of the plot. I will say, however, that it is full of wallbangers and that the dialogue is absolutely terrible. The adventure is worth it if you can suffer through the writing.

Too bad Jerry has passed on. The books he wrote for years were a great way to just read and relax. The story is pure Ahern style and nothing is wrong with that.Published 7 months ago by Jeff

I enjoy reading Jerry Ahern's work. He is a very good writer and this book disappointed me in only 1 way, there will not be a sequel because the author died of cancer. Read morePublished 19 months ago by American
