“Tom Brookes had to return to his mother’s home in Stoatsfield, located in the Cotswolds. It was July 2020, and he was on furlough from his job at a travel agency, due to the coronavirus. In July 1982, Beth Sawyer who lived in East Sussex was juggling a new acting role and the ending of a love relationship. How these two meet and how they cope with time travel occurrences comprises the main plot of this intriguing book. Author Jan Turk Petrie has penned a fascinating tale in Running Behind Time. Unlike many time travel stories where the characters move between several centuries, this one only spans thirty-eight years. Yet, the many differences between the eras, such as personal computers, cellphones, and even British currency are amazing to ponder. This is exacerbated even more by cultural changes due to the pandemic.

“Another feature of the plot is the mysterious aspects related to the time travel happenings. Tom sees the same people in both eras, and they often seem curiously strange. Relationships between the main characters also captivate the reader. Tom’s relationship with his mother is both strained and positive; she has never been forthcoming with information about his father. The relationship that grows between Tom and Beth, who were born decades apart, has many complexities. The author writes in a clear and concise manner, tying all these components together in an adventurous read. Running Behind Time, written by Jan Turk Petrie, is an entertaining, thrilling book – don’t miss it!”
