A Magical Mystery Time Book Cover

From February 1964 to 1970, it was a magical, mysterious time when The Beatles were a powerful force that shaped an entire generation of teens throughout the world. Trevor Hampton, the character in Brooke Halpin' s new novel, was one of those teens. Trevor was so infatuated with and enamored by The Beatles, that he thought he was a Beatle. A Magical Mystery Time, based on a true story, is about Trevor’s musical dreams and aspirations of becoming a successful rock and roller, who devoutly followed everything The Beatles did. But there were pot holes and dead ends on this obstacle laden long and winding road, that led Trevor to disillusionment and shattered dreams. Before he could move forward -- away from his false identity and life beyond The Beatles -- he had to get back to his past and resolve outstanding issues.

Was Trevor able to get off his magical, mystery ride and come down to Earth? Would he ever get beyond yesterday? Find out in A Magical Mystery Time, the new novel by author Brooke Halpin. Available now at these e-book locations:

More Reader Reviews:

"Trevor's gang of band mates, his bevy of female friends and their antics are a hoot. But the fun is had against the background of a fractured family life, an unsupportive father, and a failed marriage while trying to make it big in a highly competitive music business. If your teenage and young adult years were spent enjoying rock and roll especially the Beatles, you are familiar with central Connecticut, you played in a band or followed a favorite local band, you will find "A Magical Mystery Time" a very enjoyable read." -Amazon Reader 5 Star Review

"I enjoyed this book as it was a sentimental journey for me. Going back to the days when the Beatles were all the rage brought back wonderful memories and good times that I will never forget. It was a fun read throughout!" -Amazon Reader 5 Star Review
