The intrepid time traveller might be another title for this story, or something about a yo-yo in time.

Our progagonist, Jesse, gets sick one day and finds himself years in the future, in a hospital bed, where he's been delivered when found clad in nothing but his pyjamas in a street somewhere.

Then he finds out that his family doesn't exist any more. Staff think he may be a mental patient and refer him to the psychiatrist who starts to dig into his claims about his family, who he is ... and it turns out that Jesse has moved forward in time many, many years.

Eve, the psychiatrist takes him under her wing.

I will not reveal anything more about their adventures except that there's more time-shuttling at one point, and there's a love interest, or maybe several? You know how it is with these time travel stories...

I'll say this, the story will definitely appeal to his readers, and maybe to some who normally don't read Coaster's tales. It has some of his usual elements, a focus on career, on profession, education and development. But in this story we also get to read about a young man who is suddenly uprooted and dropped onto a planet that has little in common with where he came from, his hometown barely recognizable, and how he, and those surrounding him and supporting him deal with things and bring them to a loving and successful conclusion. A very sensitive treatment.

This story is well worth investing the time that it takes to read (standard disclaimers apply: imho, ymmv, etc. ;-)

To start out, Coaster is Mean. He doesn't give hints. After 2 day of chapters, I had a couple questions about what might happen. Just be patient, he said. My questions were answered in the story the next day. 2 days later, I had a couple more questions. Still no hints. Again answers happened the next day. 2 days later, a catastrophic things happened. Now I really had questions, but I decided to be patient this time and not ask. And of course things did get straightened out over the reminder of the story and Jesse's problems were mostly resolved.

This was a time travel story, but with a twist. I won't say what it was, but it was quite a surprise when it happened.

Coaster always does a good job of getting you involved with his characters, as you can see since I had so many questions. His characters don't always go through the story with no problems. but things usually do get resolved smoothly with few unresolved questions.

I also found very few grammatical errors in his writing. His editors do a good job.

Another great romantic story, just what I am used to from this author. I wouldn't mind a sequel, however.
