And Then She Vanished
He only looked away for a second.
Still haunted by the disappearance of his little sister, Amy, over twenty years ago, Joseph Bridgeman’s life has fallen apart. When a friend talks him into seeing hypnotherapist Alexia Finch to help with his insomnia, Joseph accidentally discovers he can time travel. His first trip only takes him back a few minutes, but his new-found ability gives him something he hasn’t felt for the longest time: hope.
Joseph sets out to travel back to the night Amy went missing and save her. But after several failed attempts, he discovers the farther back he travels, the less time he gets to stay there. And the clock is ticking.
With the help of Alexia, Joseph embarks on a desperate race against the past to save his sister. Can he master his new skill and solve the mystery of Amy’s disappearance before it’s too late?
Previously released as The Unexpected Gift of Joseph Bridgeman, this updated version includes extra chapters, new plotlines, and even deeper character development. It makes way for an expanded vision of the Joseph Bridgeman Series, with the first four books released in 2021 and 2022.
Jones (the Hibernation series) gets his latest series off to a rocky start with this half-baked time travel story. In 1997, 14-year-old Joseph Bridgeman attends a funfair in Cheltenham with his sister, seven-year-old Amy, and the outing turns tragic when Amy vanishes while Joe is momentarily distracted. Twenty-two years later, Amy's disappearance still haunts Joe, who holds himself responsible for failing to safeguard his sibling. Plagued by insomnia, and with his finances and living situation in peril, Joe seeks out hypnotherapist Alexia Finch for help. He gets more than he bargains for, however, when her treatment somehow allows him to travel back in time. After using this newfound power to win a lottery and stabilize his life, Joe realizes that he can also use it to return to that fateful day in 1997 and keep Amy from harm. Jones's characters accept time travel with unusually little hesitation, straining credulity, and the ultimate twist will be unsurprising to many. This is an easy one to skip.
Tittle is teasingly good
A good read with parts totally confusing and a hard to connect the dots.
The best substantial time travel novel
The best substantial time travel novel I have read since “Time and Again” Book 1 in a series book 2 is a certain purchase. No attempt to resolve all the paradoxes but a clean resolution.
One of the best
Good read! I’m excited to read the next book!
