Christy Award winner Bunn (Outbreak) delivers another riveting inspirational centered on a murder. Ethan Barrett, recently diagnosed with terminal cancer and given a month to live, is filled with regrets over broken relationships and, particularly, the argument he had with his brother, Adrian, just before Adrian was murdered 35 years before. Ethan is shocked when Adrian’s widow, Sonya, a neurobiologist, shows up and announces she has developed the technology to time travel. She asks Ethan to help save Adrian’s life by going back in time, even though doing so will result in his own death. Having nothing to lose, Ethan welcomes the opportunity to exchange his life for his brother’s and is sent back to 1985. As he races to uncover the identity of the killer, he also seizes the chance to make better decisions and treat others with compassion and generosity. Bunn’s imaginative thriller combines propulsive plotting with sharp observations on what it means to live a good, faithful life. The author’s fans will love this entertaining story of tragedy and redemption. (Nov.)
