Marae O'Conaire has much bigger problems than the fact her watch stopped at 3:57 p.m. When she brings her watch to a kindly repairman, she learns she has won a peculiar prize, a chance to re-live a single hour of her life. But Fate has strict rules about how one can go poking in the past, including the warning that she can't do anything that would create a time-paradox. Can Marae make peace with the mistake she regrets most in this world?
What if you could do it over again?
This poignant tale about racism, regret, and second chances is set in the historic mill city of Lowell, Massachusetts.
Note: this book features the Martyn Jeweler's Building Special Print Edition cover.

About the Author
Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters. The kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge.
At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off.
