Today I am doing a requested review of The Journey (Northwest Passage) by John Heldt.
Blurb: Seattle, 2010. When her entrepreneur husband dies in an accident, Michelle Preston Richardson, 48, finds herself childless and directionless. She yearns for the simpler days of her youth, before she followed her high school sweetheart down a road that led to limitless riches but little fulfillment, and jumps at a chance to reconnect with her past at a class reunion. But when Michelle returns to Unionville, Oregon, and joins three classmates on a spur-of-the-moment tour of an abandoned mansion, she gets more than she asked for. She enters a mysterious room and is thrown back to 1979.
Distraught and destitute, Michelle finds a job as a secretary at Unionville High, where she guides her spirited younger self, Shelly Preston, and childhood friends through their tumultuous senior year. Along the way, she meets widowed teacher Robert Land and finds the love and happiness she had always sought. But that happiness is threatened when history intervenes and Michelle must act quickly to save those she loves from deadly fates. Filled with humor and heartbreak, THE JOURNEY gives new meaning to friendship, courage, and commitment as it follows an unfulfilled soul through her second shot at life.
My Review: Wow I must say I am hooked on these books. John Heldt delivered again with this book. Michelle a recent widow unhappy with her life choices returns to her small town for a high school reunion. A simple exploration of a mysterious historical house with her friends sends her back in time to her senior year. She remains a 48 year old woman who sets about to help her younger self and others avoid some of the mistakes of the past. Can say too much more without spoiling the end but believe me when I say for any fans of time travel and just good books this is a must read. i must read more by Mr. Heldt and say thank you for two of the most enjoyable reads I have come across for awhile.This book gets 5 stars all around.
