Publisher's Summary

When unemployed San Francisco reporter Chuck Townsend and his college dropout son, Justin, take a cruise to Mexico in 2016, each hopes to rebuild a relationship after years of estrangement. But they find more than common ground aboard the ship. They meet a mysterious lecturer who touts the possibilities of time travel. Within days, Chuck and Justin find themselves in 1900, riding a train to Texas, intent on preventing a distant uncle from being hanged for a crime he did not commit. Their quick trip to Galveston, however, becomes long and complicated when they wrangle with business rivals and fall for two beautiful librarians on the eve of a hurricane that will destroy the city.
Filled with humor, history, romance, and heartbreak, September Sky follows two directionless souls on the adventure of a lifetime as they try to make peace with the past, find new purpose, and grapple with the knowledge of things to come.

Time Travel Journey

This is a well written and researched time-travel story. Although this book starts off at a rather slow pace it does pick up some speed when the plot throws some curves. This is the kind of book that, after you finish it and know the outcome, you would want to read again to analyze how the author weaved this story. Some very clever writing.

The narration was well done. There were, however, a few audio glitches that weren't the narrator's fault. 😀

I know this kind of book isn't for everyone but it's a nice listen if you enjoy history, time-travel, mystery, with a bit of romance

I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review courtesy of Audio book boom

September Sky: American Journey, Book 1

“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

September Sky is a time travel book that explores a historical event through fiction. A father and son are given the opportunity to travel from 2016 back to 1900. Their relationship develops during their adventures and the people they meet are different from ones in their time period. They have a mystery to solve all in a short window of time. It is interesting to see the different perspectives between the two time periods. Romances develop and it keeps the listener waiting to see if they will go back alone, accompanied or will they stay. Will their presence change history.

I see there are more books in this series that I want to explore.


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
