About the book
Carl Mosley awakens from a very realistic and bothersome dream, which he shares immediately with his older brother, Roy. Due to the detailed, emotional nature of the dream, though, Carl begins to wonder if somehow his memory has been altered. Is it possible the dream he had was his real life and he now lives a waking lie?
Soon, the brothers cross the path of a time traveler. He is hell-bent on manipulating the past to further his self-righteous agenda, but to do so he requires the help of Carl and Roy. The brothers agree to travel into the recent past, where they meet strange and zany characters with much to offer in the realm of self-reflection.
For the Mosley brothers, their lives become unrecognizable overnight, due to alterations in the past. Their fellow time traveler just might be a madman. Still, the fault is not all his. Messing with the past in order to change the future has the potential for good, but for Carl and Roy, they must learn the hard way: the past is better left alone.
