The Time Telephone
by Connie Lacy
What if you could save your mother’s life by calling her in the past on a time telephone? Moments after her mom’s funeral, 17-year-old Megan McConnell is grieving, bitter and skeptical when she stumbles on an antique phone in the farmhouse where her mother grew up. When a sweet-voiced operator asks what year she wants to call, Megan thinks it’s a prank. But she decides she has nothing to lose and everything to gain by giving it a try. She’s hoping to save her mother from dying in a bomb blast covering the war in Afghanistan. She also wants another chance at a genuine mother-daughter relationship with a woman who always chose a career as a foreign correspondent over motherhood. A time travel story with a twist.
