I’m Glad I Made Time to Read A Time to Tell

I wasn’t sure what to expect from A Time to Tell as I have never read anything from this author before, but I’m so glad I did. It’s been the first book in a while that I couldn’t put down. I just had to keep reading to find out what would happen to the characters. If I had to label it, I would say family drama, contemporary.

There was always a lot going on, and a lot of it sad. I admit, at times, I did think that too much was going wrong—but thinking about what has happened to many people I know, I realised it never rains, it pours. The story was believable and unfolds at a good pace. The author deals realistically with themes of domestic violence, difficult familial relationships and the fact that so many people live their lives because of others’ expectations. As much as I raced to get there, I was sad to reach the end, because I wanted to watch their lives continue to unfold. I will certainly be reading more of Maria Savva’s work.

I give it 4 well-deserved, twinkly stars.
