Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For Sean Corrigan the past is simply what happened yesterday, until his twenty-first birthday, when he is given a journal left him by his father's brother Michael--a man he had not known existed. The journal, kept after his uncle fled from New York City to Ireland to escape prosecution for a murder he did not commit, draws Sean into a hunt for the truth about Michael's fate.

Sean too leaves New York for Ireland, where he is caught up in the lives of people who not only know all about Michael Corrigan but have a score to settle. As his connection to his uncle grows stronger, he realizes that within the tattered journal he carries lies the story of his own life--his past as well as his future--and the key to finding the one woman he is fated to love forever.

With the appeal of The Time Traveler's Wife and the classic Time and Again, this novel is a romance cloaked in mystery and suspense that takes readers inside the rich heritage of Irish history and faith. Until the Next Time is a remarkable story about time and memory and the way ancient myths affect everything--from what we believe to who we love.

Review:

"In his debut novel, screen and television writer Fox has a fresh and fascinating take on an absorbing concoction of myth, belief, memory, identity, reincarnation, and the lasting power of love. On his 21st birthday, Sean Corrigan wakes to his dad handing him a gift: his uncle's journal. Both the journal and the uncle are news to Sean, who soon learns why he'd never heard of uncle Michael: he fled to Ireland after killing a black civil rights worker and was then killed for working with the IRA. The journal sends Sean on a journey to Ireland that's more than a trip to the old country to meet the family he never knew and find out what really happened. It's about peeling away layers of memory and learning 'WHO HE IS.' Accelerating chapters alternate between Sean's present journey and his uncle's diary and begin to flow together as more is revealed to both men. Although at times the book has the feel of an episode of Lost, it is both entertaining and provocative. Agent: Mollie Glick, Foundry Literary + Media." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

"Until the Next Time" by Kevin Fox is a novel that delves into memory: what was, what is, what may be again, as well as did it really occur as remembered. Well written and filled with engrossing characters, I feel I came to understand some of the motivations of both Sean and Michael Corrigan. This novel encompasses a wonderful trip from New York, across Ireland and time, and back to the present. "Until the Next Time" made me wonder how much of our lives are our own and not a product of our ancestry; is our individual core touched by those we never knew.
