From February 1964 to 1970, it was a magical, mysterious time when The Beatles were a powerful force that shaped an entire generation of teens throughout the world. Trevor Hampton, the character in Brooke Halpin' s new novel, was one of those teens. Trevor was so infatuated with and enamored by The Beatles, that he thought he was a Beatle. A Magical Mystery Time, based on a true story, is about Trevor’s musical dreams and aspirations of becoming a successful rock and roller, who devoutly followed everything The Beatles did. But there were pot holes and dead ends on this obstacle laden long and winding road, that led Trevor to disillusionment and shattered dreams. Before he could move forward -- away from his false identity and life beyond The Beatles -- he had to get back to his past and resolve outstanding issues.
