I've always been a huge fan of Mr. Hedlt's books and, The Mine and The Journey are one of my all time favorites. As a result, I had huge expectations from this one and, I must say, that September Sky didn't disappoint me.

The storyline is well thought out and thoroughly researched. All the historical facts and places are to the point. Though the plot felt a little far-fetched at times, I still enjoyed it, given that the book was about time-travel- a far-fetched concept in itself.

This book is written in third person multiple POVs, which give a very clear idea about everyone's thoughts and reflections. Author's writing is one of the best parts of the book and I can't sing enough praise for it. It is simple, relatable and flows beautifully.

This book had a slow start but it picked up the pace gradually. This, however, is a point that I have gotten accustomed to while reading Mr.Heldt's books. So, when I read his books I know what to expect and that makes it a little easy for me to get through the slow start of his books. But it might be a problem for anyone who'll be reading his book for the first time. So bear in mind that his books are worth the initial labor.

The ending is amazing. In spite of being a romance novel, I really didn't see it coming, so it was a pleasant surprise. All the questions were answered with great care at the end and I was completely satisfied with the way things turned out for everyone.

The characterization is really good and I felt a connection with each and every character (even with the secondary ones) and thoroughly enjoyed reading about each one of them.

As this is the first book in the American Journey series, I'm really looking forward to reading the next one.
