Time-Travel / Thriller

WHERE WERE YOU THE DAY KENNEDY WAS SAVED?
On the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination comes a new edition of the extraordinary time-travel thriller first published in 2003, now extensively revised and re-edited, and with a new Afterword from the authors.
On November 22, 1963, just hours after President Kennedy’s assassination, Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as President aboard Air Force One using JFK’s own Bible. Immediately afterward, the Bible disappeared. It has never been recovered. Today, its value would be beyond price.
In the year 2000, actress Cady Cuyler is recruited to return to 1963 for this Bible—while also discovering why her father disappeared in the same city, on the same tragic day. Finding frightening links between them will lead Cady to a far more perilous mission: to somehow prevent the President’s murder, with one unlikely ally: an ex-Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald.
Forward to Camelot: 50th Anniversary Edition brings together an unlikely trio: a gallant president, the young patriot who risks his own life to save him, and the woman who knows their future, who is desperate to save them both.
History CAN be altered …

Thanks, Mary! It was a real challenge, but we wanted people to feel part of the early 1960’s again–hope you’ll check it further to see if we succeeded!

What a fascinating story! Even after all the years the Kennedy assassination is still intriguing. Forward to Camelot sounds like a very interesting book. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, BookLady! There’s a LOT of real history in the novel that people think we made up, but we didn’t–so much stuff that most people don’t know about the assassination, who really did it and why. Hope you’ll check it out!
