Seattle, 2010. When her entrepreneur husband dies in an accident, Michelle Preston Richardson, 48, finds herself childless and directionless. She yearns for the simpler days of her youth, before she followed her high school sweetheart down a road that led to limitless riches but little fulfillment, and jumps at a chance to reconnect with her past at a class reunion. But when Michelle returns to Unionville, Oregon, and joins three classmates on a spur-of-the-moment tour of an abandoned mansion, she gets more than she asked for. She enters a mysterious room and is thrown back to 1979. Distraught and destitute, Michelle finds a job as a secretary at Unionville High, where she guides her spirited younger self, Shelly Preston, and childhood friends through their tumultuous senior year. Along the way, she meets widowed teacher Robert Land and finds the love and happiness she had always sought. But that happiness is threatened when history intervenes and Michelle must act quickly to save those she loves from deadly fates. Filled with humor and heartbreak, THE JOURNEY gives new meaning to friendship, courage, and commitment as it follows an unfulfilled soul through her second shot at life.
Five Boundless Stars
This book was a great read from start to finish. Michelle is having a hard time coming to terms with her husbands death. When she travels to her hometown for a high school reunion her whole world changes.
Literally, From 2010 to 1979. After visiting a mysterious mansion with some old high school friends, she finds herself a time traveler. When life gets her down and sends her back she stands up and moves forward becoming a new person in an old world. She quickly begins to see her roll in the past as a way to change some wrongs. This book was really great. It was the 2nd in this series, but it can easily be read as a stand alone. It was full of history, drama, love, high school romances, and time travel mysteriousness.
I really enjoyed it. The ending was a bit of shocker to me though. It brought so much to light and told a great and somewhat painful tale.
