The Sins of the Fathers

One touch… and you’re who knows when?

Rachel: the dirt poor girl brought up by her single parent father.

Danny: the arrogant rich kid who has everything his wealthy parents can afford.

Two History students who wouldn’t normally mix, but whose lives become entwined when an old gravestone catapults them back in time.

In 1912, they explore their city’s dark past, a gritty, violent, gaslit world of real danger, and try to prevent the murder of a teenage girl at the hands of her abusive, syphilitic father.

But they find that every action has an unforeseen consequence that can ripple through generations.

“Excellent time travel book. Great story – read it in only two sessions and now hooked on the series, already downloaded books 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Well written time travel book but with an historical theme. Thoroughly recommended.”

“A must for all time travel fans! Well researched with vivid descriptions of Edwardian life in Birmingham; it ends on a cliff hanger with unanswered questions – I’ll just have to buy the next part to find out what happens next!”

“Great start. I must admit I love any books that have time travel in them, and this one didn’t disappoint either. To make things even better, was to get to the end of this book knowing there were more to come. 🙂 I ended up purchasing all 5 of the books and reading them one after the other over the space of a couple of days. 🙂 Imagine two students, in a graveyard doing a project and ending up travelling in time. I won’t spoil the storyline, but will say there are twists and turns, romance and some hard decisions to make…all totalling up to a jolly good read!”

“A real page turner. Tried this out on a whim, very pleased I did, crisply written, engaging and thrilling, enjoyed it so much, I bought the series!”

“I was rapt up in the story, couldn’t put it down. As the old saying goes always leave them wanting more, just like the old Dr Who series a cliff hanger leaving you wanting to buy the next instalment.”

“I couldn’t put it down! I had read Andy’s script he had turned into a feature “Arjun and Alison” so I knew very well that he could write but I didn’t expect to be so blown away as I was with this one. The detail was brilliant. I have a feeling Andy went all out on his research on the history of the town and I felt I could go and visit and really see these places. I love the characters and simply adored this book. I read it in a day and am about to order the next one!”

“A fun book to read. Shorter than I would have liked. But I’ve just bought part two and three immediately after reading it, so that should give an idea of whether or not I liked it. Only two mild criticisms. Length (which I would have liked to have been a little longer. And the characters’ could do with a bit more depth to them. There’s lots of action, but I don’t feel like I know the main two protagonists, as well as I’d like to. Hopefully that will come in the following parts.”

“Good story. This tale is excellent. I like a story that is believable and not as far fetched as some. More like this please.”

“An extremely riveting short book that I didn’t want to end and would have loved the book to be longer.”

“Although the Touchstone books may have been written for a younger audience, I assure you; if you are a true fan of time slip reads these will not disappoint! Each went by far too fast and I find myself waiting in anticipation for the next instalment. Rachel and Danny, along with the characters they meet on their ‘journeys’ are real, likable and completely caught up in the craziness that’s so drastically changed their lives. Delightfully, Andy Conway has a unique way of throwing in twists and turns when least expected. For the price, you won’t be better entertained, and soon, you too will be as hooked as I am. KUDOS Mr. Conway… Now get cracking on Touchstone 3!”

I enjoyed this book. I have read a few time travel books but this one really got to me. I thought it was going to be a typical teenage romance but it certainly wasn’t. I had to buy the second book and can’t wait for the third. Absolutely gripping.”

“A brilliant teenage time travel drama that manages to be both intelligent and action-packed. Leads to a climax that takes your breath away…”

A really cool concept that rattles along like an express train. It’s never too long before something interesting happens, so it’s turn, turn, turn. Ideal for mobile devices like Kindle…”
