Publisher's Summary

When Micajah Fenton discovers a crater in his front yard with a broken time glider in the bottom and a naked, virtual woman on his lawn, he delays his plans to kill himself. While helping repair the marooned time traveler's glider, Cager realizes it can return him to his past to correct a mistake that had haunted him his entire life. As payment for his help, the virtual creature living in the circuitry of the marooned glider, sends Cager back in time as his 10-year-old self, knowing everything he'd known at 80 and gives him access to advanced equations of space and time.
But living life over knowing the future isn't as easy as Cager has anticipated. His every action alters the future he remembers until much of what he remembers never happened at all. And those changes work against him at every turn, preventing him correcting the most serious mistake of his life. Now he must use his advanced mathematical ability to build his own time machine to go back and try again. But he needs a fortune even to begin.
Then he receives help from a strange young woman with no history. While perfecting time travel, Cager and his new partner overcome enormous problems, even being hunted by dinosaurs in the Cretaceous. After that, though, things get really bizarre.

Time Travel for those who don't like Time Travel

This story is just amazing.
I found myself questioning the main characters motives.
I thought he was a heartless jerk at times.
He's not.
Thought provoking.
Great Ending!
I don't care for time travel stories, but I took a chance on this one.
I'm very glad I did. I highly recommend this story.

The Gift of Time is a Gift!

I have struck gold with my last two audio books based around time travel. First there was ‘Fata Morgana’ and now there is ‘A Gift of Time’. Everything I said about Fata Morgana holds true with this one. The value for money just in terms of dollar per hour listening is excellent (over 11 hours long). The narration is excellent. I sped the narration up to 1.25x speed simply because I was so eager to listen to the story. However, what provides the greatest value is simply the story line! It is total amazballs as we aussies would say!

The blurb does a good job at summarising a story which has more twist and turns than a cheap garden hose. I found myself constantly being surprised the development in the story. I liked how the author took some time to explain some of the problems with time travel… problems which other authors tend to ignore. Everything in the story just adds to the great character development. Not only was the character development great but Jerry Merritt just seemed to know how much tension I can handle in a story.

I enjoyed this one immensely and I will be keeping an eye out for any other titles from the author.

This fast fat man is giving this one the full works – Two thumbs up with a very big and long Fonzie ‘heeeeeeey’ with a smile that says ‘I am like a monkey with a new banana!’

PS. I should mention that normal services will return shortly… I will return to reviewing zombie genre very soon.

PPS. Some people have tracked me on the good old inter webs and asked if I receive free copies of the titles I review, or if I get paid for reviews. I can say beyond any shadow of doubt, the answer is no I have not. Some authors have offered, but I have said no.

OMG the best book EVER!!!

I don't normally take the time to write a review on books I listen to but this one was worth it. A seriously great story. I listen to books whilst I'm editing photos ( I'm a wedding photographer) and this I managed to finish in just 2 days. It kept me fascinated from start to finish.

Reminds me of Stephen King

I’m an avid SF listener always on the lookout for something different and of presence.

I found it here !

With excellent narration of characters and settings that were easily believed I don’t mind saying that more than once I was reminded of Stephen King’s writing whilst having a lovely warmth of characterisation.

I’ll be waiting for others by the author to be uploaded......

A grand adventure.

The reviews for this book are probably a little over the top. This is a good book and I listened to the majority of it in one day. But it is by no means a game changer or one of the best I've listened to (I've listened to hundreds).This book was easy to sit through though and I'm interested in seeing what Jerry writes next.

The narrator does get easier to listen to don't let him put you off at first.

I don't have many time travel books in my collection but I thought this one was well thought out. It did make me search for another adventure involving time travel.

Wow!

By far one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to!

An amazingly well written book with fantastically constructed character personas.

I’d be lying if I said that at times this book hadn’t pulled extremely hard on my heart strings - such a lovely story.
