Touchstone (Parts 1 & 2 Special Double Paperback Edition)
"A brilliant teenage time travel drama that manages to be both intelligent and action-packed. Leads to a climax that takes your breath away..." This is a special paperback 'double-pack' of the first two Touchstone stories. One touch... and you're who knows when? Rachel: the dirt poor girl brought up by her single parent father. Danny: the arrogant rich kid who has everything his wealthy parents can afford. Two History students who wouldn't normally mix, but whose lives become entwined when an old gravestone catapults them back in time. In part 1 (The Sins of the Fathers), Rachel and Danny find themselves in 1912 and explore their city's dark past, a gritty, violent, gaslit world of real danger, where they try to prevent the murder of a teenage girl at the hands of her abusive father. But they find that every action has an unforeseen consequence that can ripple through generations. In part 2 (Family at War), Rachel and Danny deal with the catastrophic fallout of their previous encounter with Amy Parker and now race to locate her during the 1940 Blitz, becoming caught up in the nightly German bombings of Birmingham and their chilling aftermath. "A really cool concept that rattles along like an express train. It's never too long before something interesting happens, so it's turn, turn, turn..." "I have read a few time travel books but this one really got to me. I thought it was going to be a typical teenage romance but it certainly wasn't. I had to buy the second book and can't wait for the third. Absolutely gripping..."
