Time is not what it appears to be

About M. M. Justus

"A GRAND yarn you can't put down." Janet Chapple, author of Yellowstone Treasures, on Repeating History.

"The details paint a word picture so vivid that readers can see the story play out in their minds."
Steve Dunkelberger, Tacoma Weekly, on True Gold.

I am fascinated by the possibilities of what if. The memories of place that some people call ghosts, the möbius effect of time travel. You won't find vampires or werewolves in my books, I'm afraid. Or horror. I am more interested in the potential effects of the fantastic on normal folks, and in inserting it into well-researched historical events, populated mostly by people who really lived.

I'm also an avid student of the road, and Cross-Country will not be my last travel adventure book.

Time isn’t everything it appears to be. Neither is the evidence of our senses. Are there such things as ghosts? What about spectral

places, or events? Can their existence be altered by pure

happenstance? Or does it take determination?

And where does love fall into the equation?

This was a really cool story because it kept me guessing til the end. I am talking about the main plot of the story! This takes place modern day but the main character, Daniel Reilly, ends up in what seems like a ghost town from the old west. We get snippets of where he is but we are left guessing throughout the story to figure it with the main character.

The author did a wonderful job at keeping the reader intrigued so that we would try to keep guessing what was going on in this town. There hints that would make me think I knew what happened and then there were strange twists that would throw me off track so I couldn’t figure it out. It was great! I love not being able to figure out what is going to happen – it keeps the story interesting!

I don’t want to give anything away with this book since it is a really interesting and unique story but you definitely want to give this one a try!

State trooper Dan Reilly is lost, emotionally and literally, as he follows a careening truck deep into the unknown in rural Washington state. His pursuit ends in a crash and he awakens in a totally unfamiliar place: the people are friendly and the town seems 100 years old. Over the ensuing weeks, Dan finds community, love, and a position in a town where he is valued. Will he give up the world of 2014 for this?

MM Justus has crafted a tale whose unearthliness makes us consider the necesssity of change: humans and communities need new possibilities in order to stay alive.
