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

Time Travel What!!!!

This story was a nice story that demonstrated what time travel could be like. A father and son who have no ties to the world they are in except each other. the narrator did the voices well but the story did not resonate with me. They traveled back in time fell in love and saved several people. Chuck the father and Justin the son are adrift aand not reallysur what they want out of life. Professor Bell does little to convince them to time travel and offered nothing that would induce me to travel. This was unbelievable to me so it was a time for suspending reality and it was hard for me to do. Although the Professor was investigated nothing was revealed that would make make a decision like this so lightly.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
