Patches through Time
An unbelievably believable time travel escapade.
Casual antique dealer Jake Patch picks up an unusual object and can’t put it down. Literally. His find is a time travel device, and he hatches a bold plan to acquire objects from the past and sell them at modern day prices. But when the mysterious Infinity Glass leaves Patch stranded in a dangerous past, it falls to his teen daughter Cass to save him.
With hints of The Time Traveller’s Wife and Back to the Future and a smattering of Lovejoy, Patches through Time will send you spinning headlong into the past, then spit you back into the twenty-first century.
This book contains occasional profanities. Trigger warning: bereavement (parent, spouse).
BOOK REVIEW ~ NIKI PRESTON ~ 4 STARS
Although Patches Through Time is classified as YA I actually believe anyone who loves a bit of fantasy, time travel and intrigue then absolutely give this wonderful fast read a go. Also a great introduction to the genre for the younger generation. I found this a nice easy read yet it had the perfect mix of pace and plot that keep you entertained throughout.
The main characters are Jake patch and his daughter Cass. Jake can a bit direct which can come across as a tad rude but for me this just added a level of reality to him. Cass however is calmer and I was more than sure she would succeed on her quest. You’ll have to read to find out what her quest is and does she actually succeed?
This is a glorious yet light hearted read that is definitely worth a read. The ending was brilliantly open ended and I can see another book to go with Patches Through Time. A beautifully written poignant story showing how far we as human beings, will go to try and save a loved one.
