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

Good story about time travelers.

What made the experience of listening to September Sky the most enjoyable?

Listening about the historical events and trying to work their lives around them.

What did you like best about this story?

I like stories about time travel. However, I felt these characters did not have any problem adapting. I think most of us would be like, Oh yes that's right it hasn't been invented yet.

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

Not sure if I have. He did a pretty good job..

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Back in time.
