If you want a trip back in time to experience the captivating times of the social revolution that accompanied Beatlemania, this is a must - magical.

It's a true treat when you read a book that actually draws you into existing in time and place along with the characters. Let me tell you that nothing is more fun than hanging with Paul, John and the boys in Liverpool as they prepare to explode onto the national stage.
This book is wonderfully written and draws you in. You will NOT want to put this down until the last page. Even after I finished...my first thought was "Gee, I hope there is a sequel." Loved the story...loved the characters. For an avid reader like me, this was a very enjoyable read.

I just hung out in Liverpool in the sixties, or at least that’s how it felt after reading the book. Those days came alive as I ran through the pages and I’m well impressed. What a pleasure it was to see how the characters and plot came together with a bunch of unexpected turns thrown in. Excellent!

Wilson Quick was on the radio show "New Day Today" to talk about his new book.
NDT: Welcome to the show, Wilson. Tell us a little about your latest novel.
WQ: Thanks. Well, it’s basically about a drummer who travels back in time and winds up in Liverpool in 1962. He meets an amazing family from nearby Allerton and they invite him to stay with them. While he’s there, he realizes that the Beatles, who are his absolute favorite band, are about to change drummers and he comes up with the idea that he should try and beat Ringo to the punch.
NDT: You’re quite obviously a Beatles fan. Is that an understatement?
WQ: Oh yeah, very much. As they were for so many people, the Beatles were a huge part of my life and influenced me in many ways. I was born in England and was a little kid when they first hit the national airwaves. I remember watching them on Top of the Pops and wanting to be one of them.
