Publisher's Summary

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.

Unusual Time Traveling Story.

Where does The Journey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Journey is a good book. It has an interesting plot with a new twist on time travel. It is told at an even, tranquil pace. It is a clean, family friendly book. No violence, sex, or inappropriate scenes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Journey?

There are several memorable scenes in this story. The scene where Michelle first leaves the Franklin house and realizes that she has gone back in time leads to many memorable scenes. It is memorable when Michelle tells Michael Land to do whatever it takes to get his friend to come home in order to avoid the Iraq hostage situation. Michelle taking on a drunken student and forcing him to get out of his car in order to save his life is memorable. The ending of the story is unexpected. It is oddly satisfying and well done.

Have you listened to any of Caroline Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this is a new narrator for me. She did a great job.

If you could rename The Journey, what would you call it?

Take Two--A Chance to Tell Your Younger Self How Best to Live Your Life.

Book 2

What did you love best about The Journey?

'The Journey' was, a fantastic audiobook. It was well thought out, engaging, and the characters were realistic. I think the latter is the reason I didn't want to book to end.
