Jen’s Story: Torn between Two Times by Carol Arnall

Jen Rickmand’s life had been terrible so far, suffering abuse from her step-father. Jen’s only escape from her horrid home life is her interest in the paranormal and she has the ability to see and hear spirits.

After a terrible assault at the hands of her step-father, Jen knows she has to get away and leave and she does just this, in the hope that she can start a new life and find happiness. But first Jen must come to terms with the anxiety her old life as left her with.

Just when Jen is making good progress with her life and starting to move forward, a ride in a taxi with a mysterious driver called Mike, will change Jen’s life forever, when she finds herself to have travelled back in time to 1965, and finds she has a life there with a devoted and loving husband and child. Jen finds herself shifting between the two times of 1965 and 2011, not sure which one she truly belongs to.

Where will she find happiness in the past or in the present?

Only time will tell.

I really enjoyed this story; Jen is such an amazing and likable leading character, who finds herself torn between two worlds. This was a book I could not put down. There is just something really different and unique about this story. It stands out from the usual time-travel stories that are often all wrote in the same way, with the same outcome. This story really develops the time-travel type story and brings it to a whole new level. The paranormal side to the story fits perfectly together with the time-travelling, making this so much more than just a time-travel story and with the emotional side to it too. I also found myself losing about four hours’ time before I had known it reading this brilliant book. A brilliant read from beginning to end, that leaves you wanting to read more.
