Notes:
Summer, 1972: In the claustrophobic heat, eleven-year-old Byron and his friend begin 'Operation Perfect', a hapless mission to rescue Byron's mother from impending crisis. Winter, present day: As frost creeps across the moor, Jim cleans tables in the local cafe, a solitary figure struggling with OCD. His job is a relief from the rituals that govern his nights. Little would seem to connect them except that two seconds can change everything. And if your world can be shattered in an instant, can time also put it right?

Reviews:
Our book group read this and were split - those who liked it, loved it; those who didn't either dismissed it out of hand or found it too depressing. My personal feeling was that it was a challenging concept, beautifully realised and sympathetically written. I found hope in the ending. Perhaps some of the descriptive scene setting passages could have been pruned but I would recommend this book.
