Overview

In the year 2000, two Maceyville, Alabama police officers respond to a 911 and discover a rift in time.



In pursuit of an arsonist, Kathleen "Kat" Templeton, the department's first black officer, and her partner Sergeant James "Mitch" Mitchell, find themselves in 1963 Maceyville.



For Kat, this is an opportunity to save an aunt that died in 1963. However, she is unprepared for the segregated, racist time period. No longer in uniform, armed or carrying police identification, she quickly discovers the reality of her new world.



Her white Yankee partner, Mitch, soon learns "the way it is." As he and Kat are drawn deeper into the violent 1960s, he must work through his emotions regarding black-white friendships and loyalty.



In their quest to alter past events, they are faced with new threats to family and friends-as well as their own lives.

    OUT OF THIS WORLD!

    BEYOND THIS TIME is an excellent novel that takes the reader on a journey back in time to experience the inequality and mistreatment of blacks in the 1960s. The author describes the characters so vividly that it was easy to imagine myself living right along side them. This fast-paced page-turner will stick in the reader¿s mind long after the novel comes to an end. My only complaint about this book is that Ms. Banchi needs a good editor. I found numerous spelling and grammatical errors that, at times, distracted me from the story.

    Time Travel with a Twist!

    What an awesome book! You are transported from one time period back to another. Traveling back to the south in the 60's with the ever present black and white issues. The two main characters come to life so vividly that you become a part of their lives dealing with controversal issues. Have things changed so much in the last 40 years? I certainly hope so. This is a must read book. It will cause you to think deep within yourself and examine your beliefs, ideals and opinions on many levels! Great Job!

    Quite a journey

    Beyond This Time is a picture painted with words. The author takes you right into the heart of the deep South. All the characters seem like real people you'd meet everyday. Recommend it highly.
