What would you do if you could go back in time and save someone’s life? That is the decision high school English teacher Jake Epping must make. One spring day, he gets a call from Al, the local diner owner. Al is dying and needs to show someone a secret before it’s too late. Al’s diner contains a portal to the past, a specific day in 1958. He wants Jake to do what Al cannot: go back in time and prevent JFK from being assassinated. But the past does not want to be changed; it will stop Jake at any cost.
This one of the best books I have ever read. It had everything- history, romance, suspense, and time travel. Once I started reading, it was hard to tear myself away. I wasn’t enamored with the ending, but I’m not sure it could have ended any other way. Highly recommended.
