Jake was at least in his early forties as he had aged five years in his endeavor to kill LHO. Then I believe there was additional time spent in the present researching where Sadie was. I don,t know how old you are, maybe you are very young. But for myself, I will always have the capacity to love as long as I can breathe. And reading books like this make me long for the ability to be able to find and treasure lost loves no matter how many years have transpired. I know I would cherish any moments I could spend with the love of my life no matter how old we might be. The love of soul mates never dies. That our bodies are fragile and betray us does not dampen our soul or our capacity to love. Before my mother passed, she said not to listen to her, she was just an old lady. And I told her - no, that is not true, you are a child, a teenager, a young mother, a middle aged woman and have all the wisdom living all those ages have brought to you. So Sadie might look like she,s 80, but she is also the passionate woman that deeply loves jake.
Hi there KQ (I hope you don't mind the nickname)

No I am not very young actually (just immature lol)

I like your outlook on life - there's definitely more to love than just the physical part :m_petals:

Really? Nobody on this thread mentioned age?!

Neesy said: (and I quote!)
" How old was Jake?

Sadie was at a stage in her life where she would most likely not be interested in Jake;

I think the age difference would be too great "
11/22/63 is one of my favourite books - I've read it twice but it sounds like it's most likely due for another re-read;

- I still haven't read End of Watch yet so will probably read that first.

Are you looking forward to his new book? (Sleeping Beauties)

Sadie is probably better off without him anyway. Dude was a real idiot. A lovable idiot who I rooted for but not a shred of common sense. It's amazing he pulled it off, though any of us who have seen any time traveling movie ever made knew even trying in the first place was a terrible idea.
