After Dona's assistant is shot, Savannah Reid is called in to be her bodyguard. Since the assistant was wearing Dona's fur coat and getting in her car, the police believe that Dona was the target.

Stephen King

Recommended by: Sheila U

This fascinating book combines historical fiction with science fiction, asking the question "If you could change an event in history, would you?"  The main character discovers a portal back in time, and develops a plan stop the assassination of John F. Kennedy.   He finds that the "Obdurate Past" resists change, and the results of trying to change history are unexpected.  While there are a few gruesome details typical of King's writing, this story is not about monsters or supernatural beings.  The time travel is only a plot device; the story asks bigger questions about life, time, politics, and history.
