Overview

Francine Esterro has lived peacefully in the small University town of Bluffington for many years. When she can't reach her long time and close friend in the house across the street she begins to worry. A few weeks pass with still no word of her friend when the house is suddenly sold and a stranger moves in. Francine becomes panicked as her thoughts go to a device that has been kept hidden away and guarded up in the attic of that house; a device that caused her and her friends so much suffering and tragedy many years ago.

The year was nineteen sixty-six. Francine is a young art student sharing the house with three other young students. She and the others on a whim decided to explore the attic, where it is rumored a dead man was once found hanging, but while searching the attic instead of finding anything to do with the dead man, they stumble across a strange device. After getting a sense that the device is something they should maybe not be touching, they decide to leave it alone, but it is already too late. The next morning they awake to find they have been sent back in time ten years.
As the four attempt to find a way to get back home, tempers flare and personalities soon divide the group. They struggle to work together as a group to find their way home, but not before they send themselves to multiple different periods in time where tradgedy continues to follow them, finally leaving one of them on the brink of death before they make it back to a time they belong.

Francine knows she must seek out the stranger if she has any hope of accessing the device in the attic to ensure the secret of what happened those many years ago remains a secret.

I could NOT put this book down. It was intriguing, mysterious, well written and captivating. I could hardly wait to see what spin the author would include in the story. The story revolves around four art students who rent a house together. The house has unique qualities and a mysterious history. Long before students rented the house, a body was found dangling from some rope in the attic. It was never decided if it was a suicide or a murder. One evening, the students decide to check the attic out and find trunks filled with different era-type clothing dating back to the 1930s. They also find this mysterious clock/radio which they refer to as the "thingy". It plays music, yet there is no radio announcer and all the music is instrumental. After playing with the "thingy" the students go to bed, and when they wake up, they notice the front yard looks different. Trees are shorter, bushes smaller. They traveled back into time. The element of time travel is so interesting! I loved how the author tied everything together. The only con was the language, which is fairly strong. I took away a star because of that.

Amazing, story line; where did this come from? I couldnt hardly put it down though. It was bazar and twisted, Just my kind of story; i think there should be part 2. Like maybe, jeff turning out to be kammel returning for revenge. Its a thought. Thank you i enjoyed this book.

I must admit the first 200 pages dragged and were sort of boring but then the story grabbed onto me and picked up and kept my intrest. This ended up being a good read. It is a little over 800 pages.

This book confused me a little with the time travel information, but it was such a good book that I could not put it down.

Very strange story that was hard to get into. It made little sense and the ending was even stranger. Would not recommend this.
