How far would you go for the one you love? As it turns out, Jenny Griffith will go as far as it takes. Admittedly, I don't read a lot of science fiction or time travel stories, but something about One Way grabbed my attention. Thankfully, this one wasn't overly technical in its explanations of how possible time travel would work. Instead, I found a fast-paced tale of what ifs. What if you could change one event in your life? What if you could go back and save that special someone you can't live without?
Barry and Jenny's tale starts out simply enough with just another day in the life of an everyday couple, struggling to make ends meet and getting past the typical marital squabbles... Until life throws them a curve ball. As Jenny's life takes a downward spiral, she's offered the chance of lifetime. What happens next is a rapid fire series of events that keep the pages turning in anticipation.
As expected, the story moves back and forth between past and present, and the author does this quite seamlessly without creating a distraction for the reader. With complex characters and building tension, this reader was so caught up in this wonderfully written tale that I couldn't put it down.
