Dallas, 11/22/63: Three shots ring out.
President John F. Kennedy is dead.
Life can turn on a dime-or stumble into the extraordinary, as it
does for Jake Epping, a high school English teacher in a Maine
town. While grading essays by his GED students, Jake reads a
gruesome, enthralling piece penned by janitor Harry Dunning: fifty
years ago, Harry somehow survived his father's sledgehammer
slaughter of his entire family. Jake is blown away...but an even
more bizarre secret comes to light when Jake's friend Al, owner of
the local diner, enlists Jake to take over the mission that has
become his obsession-to prevent the Kennedy assassination. How? By
stepping through a portal in the diner's storeroom, and into the
era of Ike and Elvis, of big American cars, sock hops, and
cigarette smoke... Finding himself in warmhearted Jodie, Texas,
Jake begins a new life. But all turns in the road lead to a
troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald. The course of history is
about to be rewritten...and become heart-stoppingly suspenseful.
