Saving Kennedy – Two Short Stories. Two Time Travelers. Two Chances to Change History.
Two short stories about time travel, the JFK assassination, and the consequences of the choices we make.
ALIBI INTERRUPTED When Stewart Hudson travels back in time to stop the assassination of President Kennedy, he never expected he'd become Oswald's alibi, nor did he expect to be stranded in 1963.
Years later, before Stewart takes his fateful trip, he's confronted by a mysterious woman who shouldn't know about his secret mission. She pleads with him to heed her warnings to ensure the mission's success but she quickly learns that meddling in the affairs of the past always has its consequences.
THE VISITOR Theodore Garfield never believed the old farmer's story about the day the stranger appeared in his cornfield. And Theodore was even more skeptical about the letter the visitor left behind detailing the gradual downfall of America beginning with the assassination of a future president named John F. Kennedy.
Years later the farmer's story is all but forgotten until a young senator named John F. Kennedy is elected president. With the farmer and the letter now long gone, will Theodore be able to prevent one of the most tragic days in American history?
