Publisher's Summary

In 1968, a terrible tragedy — 

In 2018, a secret government agency — 

One slim chance to travel back in time — 

One terrifying week to change the past.  

“A gripping, intimate story, profoundly human and relentlessly surprising.” (Felicity Jennings)

In 1968, Charlotte Vance was one of the few women employed by the National Security Agency in Washington, D.C. She put in long hours and was working when a fire started in her home. Her daughters and husband were killed. For 50 years, she has felt responsible for their deaths. 

In 2018, when a former colleague from the NSA mentions a top secret government agency that is experimenting with time travel, she decides to apply. 

She discovers that TEMPUS has many secrets. The scientists are mind-bendingly strange and brilliant. She must endure grueling physical, emotional, and psychological tests. She fears her age and weak heart might disqualify her. 

After a difficult time travel journey, Charlotte learns a shocking truth: TEMPUS has hidden motives for sending her. She struggles to change the tragedy of her personal past while also struggling to stop TEMPUS from violently altering history.

4 stars only because it really needs a sequel?

i couldn't put this down. I gave it 4 stars but the ending left me wanting a sequel. I loved the book but I felt that the ending was a little open ended for both the main character and the supporting characters. It really needs a sequel.

5 star time travel

I’m amazed to say that this time travel is gripping. Even if you’re not enchanted by Part1, the rest will grip you and never leave you.

Gripping listen loved it

This is a relaxed yet gripping story. Maybe its too short or maybe thats the author’s intention. A follow up is definitely needed. Im a big fan of time travel stories and this doesn’t disappoint. Love the main character I won’t spoil it but shes, well relatable.
