Play For Time
Jan Turk Petrie, author
What if the future hangs on your ability to play for time… When Tom Brookes and Beth Sawyer accidentally bumped into each other on the 15:15 train from Paddington to Cheltenham, neither of them expected it to be the start of a journey that would throw their normal lives so spectacularly off-course. In 'Play for Time' – the sequel to 'Running Behind Time' – Tom and Beth struggle to adjust to life in a sleepy Cotswold village while trying to rein in a toddler whose astounding abilities are seen as a threat by the all-powerful Guardians. With spies reporting on the family’s every turn, what follows is as unpredictable as the knife-edge climax. 'Play for Time' continues the story of an extraordinary relationship between people who should never have met.
