Publisher's Summary

Once upon a Missing Time is a powerful and emotional journey involving married couple Alan and Pamela Morrison and their teenage daughter Wendy. Alan is a teacher at the local high school, and his wife Pamela is a social worker for the local authority. One night, whilst driving back from their in-laws home near the rural North Yorkshire village of East Yardsley, the Morrison family encounter something that would change their lives and worldview forever. The Morrisons have a close encounter with something quite extraordinary. On arriving home, they discover nearly four hours of their lives - missing. Plagued by nightmarish shared dreams, the Morrison's look for answers for their missing time. Their search for answers threatens to tear the family apart, leaving them with lives that will never be the same again. Set in rural England in 1990, this was an era before the Internet and the digital age. The Morrison family search for answers, but it is a search that eventually ends in frustration and betrayal. This is not a story about alien visitation, but rather how a family try desperately to cope with a phenomenon that no one seems to understand. Although a work of fiction, Once upon a Missing Time is based on real-life close encounter cases from the UK. All of the characters in this drama are based on people who have either experienced this phenomena first hand or have been UFO investigators. The names, locations, and professions of all have been changed to protect the individuals concerned. Once you have heard Once upon a Missing Time, you will understand that the phrase "close encounter" was not just a figment of Steven Spielberg's imagination.

Cringing

Do not waist your credits or money! The narrator is absolutely one of the worst I’ve ever endured! I cringed every few seconds listening to this book. The narrator’s has a whistling sound attached to his words and you could hear him gasping for air when he spoke as if he were smoking packs of cigarettes as he read. I thought it would be more tolerable without my earbuds in but boy was I wrong! Awful!
