Rachel, lost and alone in 2012, travels back to 1966 to repair her lost timeline with the help of Charlie, now 50 years old but still in love with her.
Continuing the adventures of Rachel and Danny, a pair of mismatched History students who stumble upon an old gravestone that catapults them back in time.
The Swinging Sixties are in full flow, Birmingham is being rebuilt and England are hosting the football World Cup.
The temptation to stay there and live with Charlie is overwhelming, but Danny is there too, and the World Cup betting sting he’s carrying out on the city’s bookies brings them all to the attention of a local gangster, a corrupt politician, a cop with a grudge and a cabal of mysterious time travellers who are determined to prevent the past being changed.
In the end it’s hard to care about correcting the past when you’re in danger of becoming the foundations for a new high rise.
Touchstone explores a city’s dark past: a gritty world of real danger where every action has an unforeseen consequence that can ripple through generations.

Reader comments on Touchstone parts 1 and 2
“Although the Touchstone books may have been written for a younger audience, I assure you; if you are a true fan of time slip reads these will not disappoint! Each went by far too fast and I find myself waiting in anticipation for the next installment. Rachel and Danny, along with the characters they meet on their ‘journeys’ are real, likable and completely caught up in the craziness that’s so drastically changed their lives. Delightfully, Andy Conway has a unique way of throwing in twists and turns when least expected. For the price, you won’t be better entertained, and soon, you too will be as hooked as I am. KUDOS Mr. Conway… Now get cracking on Touchstone 3!”
“I enjoyed this book. I have read a few time travel books but this one really got to me. I thought it was going to be a typical teenage romance but it certainly wasn’t. I had to buy the second book and can’t wait for the third. Absolutely gripping.”
“A brilliant teenage time travel drama that manages to be both intelligent and action-packed. Leads to a climax that takes your breath away…”
“A really cool concept that rattles along like an express train. It’s never too long before something interesting happens, so it’s turn, turn, turn. Ideal for mobile devices like Kindle…”
