“Well, Time and Again is one of those novels that, when you start it, you really do not know what to expect and what you get is so much more than you could have ever imagined. I am relatively new to the genres of historical fiction and Christian fiction and I don’t always know what I am getting myself into. I sat down to read this book and honestly, I was worried that I would not like it, but I was more than pleasantly surprised, for sure.
Deborah Heal writes well-rounded, realistic characters that you can really relate to. Merrideth’s family struggles are something I could understand, as well as Abby’s desire to help. The plot was well played out, although admittedly, there are a couple (I think literally, there were 2 or 3) of perspective-shifts that were a little rough until you realized what happened and where you were in the story.
Once you were able to adjust to that, though, there were no problems at all with the flow of the story and I enjoyed every word that I read. I was able to read this book in just a couple of sittings, unable to walk away and having to know what happened.
I am anxious to see what happens with the characters and how the story develops further. If you are a fan of historical or Christian fiction and want to read a good, wholesome book that will make you think, then this is the story for you.”
