Forward to Camelot : 50th Anniversary Edition
WHERE WERE YOU THE DAY KENNEDY WAS SAVED? On the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination comes a new edition of the extraordinary time-travel thriller first published in 2003 with a new Afterword from the authors. On November 22, 1963, just hours after President Kennedy's assassination, Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as President aboard Air Force One using JFK's own Bible. Immediately afterward, the Bible disappeared. It has never been recovered. Today, its value would be beyond price. In the year 2000, actress Cady Cuyler is recruited to return to 1963 for this Bible-while also discovering why her father disappeared in the same city, on the same tragic day. Finding frightening links between them will lead Cady to a far more perilous mission: to somehow prevent the President's murder, with one unlikely ally: an ex-Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald. Forward to Camelot: 50th Anniversary Edition brings together an unlikely trio: a gallant president, the young patriot who risks his own life to save him, and the woman who knows their future, who is desperate to save them both. History CAN be altered ...

Generally, I am not a big fan of time travel, but the premise of this book intrigued me. From the beginning, I was immersed in the story, and I found myself thinking about this book when I wasn't reading it. I just had to know how it was going to end! The authors did an amazing job of crafting a tale that answers the question: "What if ..." Want to know the answer? You have to read the book! One word of caution--there is quite a bit of profanity in the book. While I could have done without the profanity (it increased as the book intensified), I was willing to overlook it to ultimately reach the end of the book. And just so you know--you do need to suspend reality as you know it in order to read this book. However, very clever (and true) historical details are also included. Trust me--the authors did their research and even updated this volume to make things run more smoothly and make more sense. I was not around during the time of JFK--I wasn't even born yet. But this book made me look at this time in history differently than I ever have. It also made me glad that time travel is not a possibility. I really don't want to go back in time and risk changing the future! I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.show moreby Ruth Hill
Did I enjoy this book: I Ã¢?Â¦ I donÃ¢??t know what to say. I enjoyed it in much the same way I enjoyed the Carrie Underwood version of The Sound of Music Ã¢?? that is to say, I couldnÃ¢??t stop reading (or watching), but IÃ¢??m not entirely sure it was for the right reasons. I know I promised to suspend my disbelief when I signed up for this gig, but I had no idea IÃ¢??d be agreeing to travel via Ã¢??cyber timeÃ¢?? back to an alternate past wherein Kennedy DOESNÃ¢??T get shot and the heroine accidentally makes out with Lee Harvey Oswald. I blame myself entirely. I didnÃ¢??t know how attached I was to the actual history of my country. I didnÃ¢??t even think I LIKED history. I didnÃ¢??t know how I felt about what I can best describe as a Quasi-Historical Assassination Conspiracy Fanfiction novel until I was well past the point of no return. TIL: happy endings arenÃ¢??t my bag, baby. Would I recommend it: Yeah (I bet you werenÃ¢??t expecting that). ItÃ¢??s crazy-go-nuts, but if youÃ¢??re even the least bit uncertain about how you stand on time travel (or President Kennedy, or soap opera actresses, or special effects guys who secretly build time machines in their back rooms), then you absolutely need to read this book. Go on, give it a whirl. I cyber-dare you. Will I read it again: Right after I re-watch Vampire Bill pretend to be Captain VonTrapp. As reviewed by Melissa at Every Free Chance Book Reviews.
