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.

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. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

When Sean Corrigan turns 21, his father gives him a journal and monetary inheritance from an uncle he never even knew anything about. The journal is puzzling, as is the true end to Uncle Michael. A trip to Ireland is in the cards, funded by the inheritance. Packed off with gifts for distance cousins, Sean heads across the ocean to Ireland and to the answers he seeks. Fox uses very rich writing to describe both time and historical place in this book. The wars that have waged in Ireland over the years get their due, as do present day animosities. I wholeheartedly bought into Fox's premise, with reincarnation as its' heart. Too much repetition and heavy handed foreshadowing left me wanting this to be a better book. Definitely worth the time spent, but even the ending was somewhat unsatisfying.

Rated 4/5
"Until the Next Time" was just too much book for the story line. My copy was almost 400 pages, in a small font, and much of the content was quite repetitive. However, even though I didn't agree with most of the reincarnation theories in the book, I did appreciate the Irish humor, culture, and countryside. It says a lot about Kevin Fox as an author that even though I didn't like much of what he wrote, I still acknowledged his skill as a storyteller. I will read other works by Kevin Fox, and I know that I will find quality in his way with words. The trouble with "Until the Next Time" is that the reincarnation aspect is hammered in, over and over, and that's not a reincarnation joke. The violence was disturbing, and sadly the truth is that human beings will never learn, and we will continue in the same vein until we annihilate each other once and for all. No "coming back" that time--nothing to come back to find! I think that everyone who reads this book will have a different opinion, but I know that none of us will forget what we have read.

This is an Amazon Vine book that took me out of my comfort zone; it required me to fancy myself Irish and just accept what I read. If it hadn't contained such marvelous characters, I don't think I would have suspended disbelief so well but these characters have such depths to them that I'll be thinking about them for a long while.The story begins when Sean Corrigan, of New York, is given a journal kept by his father's brother Michael. Sean had never known about an Uncle Michael, but apparently his uncle had been a NY cop who ran to Ireland to escape a murder charge. As the story continues, Sean goes to Ireland to solve the mystery of what happened to his uncle there and meet the people who knew his uncle.Now it gets really intriguing and mysterious. Sean doesn't know what's going on half the time and I could only figure things out in retrospect in some cases. Still I was glued to the pages as I needed to find out. All I could do was settle in for a wild ride, particularly when Anne, the girl who is sent to pick Sean up at the airport, is driving. This girl is one of the most fascinating characters in the book, and her driving is absolutely insane.The beautifully described settings vary from lonely islands, one of which Sean's family owns, to city streets. The IRA is involved, the Troubles, killing of innocent people in the cause of a free Ireland, guns and money from the U.S., revenge killings, and the British fighting back. You will wonder throughout who is Declan? You will wonder what happens to Kate and Michael and Sean and Anne. And unfortunately if I tell you anymore I'll spoil the story for you.I'll have to be satisfied with saying that the story is very Irish, and that it is illogically logical. If you have "eyes that see and ears that hear", you will understand. I highly recommend this haunting book.

I enjoyed parts of “Until Next Time” – but at the end of it – wasn’t completely sure what type of book I’d just read. At times it felt like a romance, at times a treatise on religion & spirituality, and much of the time it was a political statement about the violent situation in Northern Ireland.As the subject danced around, so did the writing style. The book begins in the point of view of a young man named Sean. His voice comes across as belligerent, skeptical and far younger than one might expect. The style is choppy and sometimes seems very juvenile. As the book continues, though, he sometimes has thoughts that seem FAR more mature than he is. This voice is introspective, worldly and very wise – and although the events of the story try to lay the groundwork for that change – it feels off. He starts out the book with a variety of curses and complaints, and sounding like an aimless but angry teenager, but then less than halfway through, (and before any major changes) comes across sounding completely different.“But even in that moment – even as I thought about telling her how deeply I cared for her – some part of me knew it wouldn’t last. It wasn’t that I regretted what happened, and I knew that I could probably spend years getting to know her, loving every moment. She was beautiful on every level, and I knew she would always challenge me. But it would never be complete. It would never feel as if I couldn’t breathe without her next to me. It would always feel like she were standing in for someone else. Who that was, I didn’t know yet, but I knew she was still out there somewhere, even in those first few moments with Anne.”This is about a young woman who he just met…1-2 days before?The one part of the book that will stay with me was the perspective on the Irish – ways of life and loving and fighting. Part Irish myself, I appreciated phrases like; “Smiling women and singing children had perpetual tears in their eyes, as did the angry and defiant young men. The Irish character that I’d seen and never understood my whole life was suddenly on the surface and visible here, tears and laughter so intertwined they were inseparable.”That is beautifully written, and was more of the book similar to that; I would have enjoyed it more. But this mix of politics, romance, spirituality and violence just didn’t capture me as much as I’d hoped.
