If you could travel back in time to see any concert, who would you go to see?

Caroline Tangent's husband, Jon has invented a time machine so they can visit iconic gigs in history: Woodstock, David Bowie, Edith Piaf in 1930's Paris - an inexhaustible bucket-list. But they can't tell anyone they're doing so.

As their trips to the past continue, they begin to realise how it could change a devastating moment from their own past. But for Caroline, it's clear they don't want the same outcome.

Until, on one trip, one of them does something unthinkable which will change both their lives forever.

For fans of Matt Haig, Claire North and Audrey Niffenegger.

Review quote

"Immensely enjoyed The Other Times of Caroline Tangent. What a journey!! Highly recommended." - KHURRUM RAHMAN, AUTHOR OF THE 'JAY QASIM' SERIES; "My favourite book of the year so far." - NIAMH BURNETT, BOOK REVIEWER; "A terrific novel, wonderfully plotted, paced and realised... A hugely enjoyable second novel from a very accomplished writer, this is a wonderful holiday read which deserves a wide audience." - TARN RICHARDSON, AUTHOR OF 'THE DARKEST HAND' TRILOGY; "Wainewright has this wonderful talent of pulling you in and not letting you go, surrounding you with music, with settings that he builds in your mind, and with characters who are completely realistic, and relatable. He writes a real story, provides enough detail without bogging the reader down, makes you dream, and leaves you wanting more (in a good way). I thoroughly loved this book!" JADE ANNA HUGHES, BOOK REVIEWER; This reminded me a lot of "The Time Traveller's Wife" and "About Time". The book was expertly crafted and I thank the author for the silent trips to the concerts in here. The story was enjoyable to read and I will recommend it to family, friends, patrons and strangers reading on mass transit...there are a lot on the #15! I am going to ask every music fan I know what concert they would have liked to have gone to and then segue way it into telling them to read this book! - GOODREADS REVIEW;
