September Sky by John A. Heldt

Genre: Adult, Science Fiction
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

I have always loved time travel stories.  This is one that is really great for many reasons.  First of all the reader knows the rules of time travel from the beginning.  The two main characters are very well developed. They are believeable because we know people just like them.  You know who I am talking about. The father who has spent so much time with his career that he has forsaken his son. The son who barely knows his father and now they are trying to mend that relationship.  While on a cruise to do just that, the two of them attend a conference about time travel by a Dr. Bell.  When they return home they are given the opportunity to travel back in time with the idea they will do nothing to change the course of history and will gather data for Dr. Bell.  Things change because Chuck, the father immediately breaks the rules. He had his own agenda.  Not to mention they both fall in love. The author did a lot of research for this historical time period.  He also included the Galveston Hurricane to spice things up. 
This is an easy read and once you get started you really don't want to put it down. So, if you are like me and love time travel books that will keep you on the edge of your seat, then this is the book for you.  Highly recommended.
