First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch

"What if history didn't happen that way ... the first time?"

Garison Fitch was one of the most revered scientists in the Soviet Americas until he left fame behind to work on a secret project in his log cabin in the mountains of Marx.

But something went wrong. Instead of traveling interdenominational, Garison has traveled through time ... twice.

Now, he's in something called "The United States of America" and a woman he's never met before is calling herself his wife. It it a hoax? Or, has he somehow changed history?

If so, can he return the world to what he believes is "normal", or must he live in this strange world he created?



"Sam continues to weave his magic as a storyteller. I always find myself anxious to find out what will happen next and what kind of twist will befall the adventurers. It helps to be familiar with the places that the heroines go, which adds to the story."
~Labdaddy, Texas

"I've had a few very unproductive but enjoyable days thanks to Samuel Ben White. If you haven't read Sam's books you have been missing a treat. These were funny, suspenseful, spiritual and kept you turning the pages."
~Karen S.

"Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed your books. I have a Kindle and I have purchased all of the Garison Fitch novels. I am in Saudi Arabia and your books have really helped take me away from here."
~Scott, Saudi Arabia
My Review
 When I first started reading this book, it was a little hard to tell what was going on.  The book starts out telling the story of Garison Fitch, a brilliant scientist, who may have discovered time travel.  The America he lives in now is not the America we are accustomed to.  The Soviets rule over The United States.  During an experiment Garison goes back in time to the 1700's.  A much simpler time.  Thinking there is no way to get back to the present he quietly begins a new life.  He meets a beautiful girl, makes wonderful friends and joins a church.  Something that would not be possible back in the Soviet Americas.

Life is perfect for a while.  Then Garison is thrust back into the future.  Not the future he remembers but a different one.  A better one!  Something that he done in the past has changed his future.  But what about all the people he left behind?  Did they ever really exist?  Garison goes on a quest to find out who he really is and where he came from.

I want to thank the author for gifting me this book for a fair and honest review.  I enjoyed taking part in this blog tour.  When reading this book please stick with it.  It is a wonderful story with plenty of exciting twist and turns.  It will have you asking yourself what is most important in your life and what extremes you would go to for the ones you love.  I look forward to reading the other books in this series.

Saving Time

Two years ago Garison Fitch traveled through time and rewrote history. An accident in the eighteenth century created a whole new world, and even gave Garison a wife he had never met before. Now, he’s got a daughter and he’s coming to enjoy this world he created. Until he’s attacked by men masquerading as Indians, and a funeral procession from out of the past enlists his help, and a tree grows from sapling to full-grown in a matter of minutes, threatening his daughter’s very life. Time itself is unraveling and Garison’s trips through time seem to be the cause. Garison must go back in time once again and keep himself from making the original trip that started the problem. But he can’t use his time machine to go back. How does one sew up a rip in time?

Lost Time

Jason Kerrigan and Brownwyn Dalmouth are pilots with the Republic of Texas Army Air Corps. A world war is going on and bombs have just brought an end to Crockett Air Field in south Texas. Jason and Bronwyn, though, are called away from the battle to be test pilots for a new aircraft that-they're told-will bring the war to an end. The experimental craft lives up to expectations in early tests, but then it lands them somewhere it never should have sent them. Another place? Another time? Another dimension? Somehow, they've taken a trip to the future and changed the past. Or did they? The answer to their change of reality may be known to a Justice of the Peace in Colorado named Garison Fitch. To figure it out, though, Garison may have to team up with his least favorite person: Bat Garrett.
