“[Abigail Trafford] delves into the problems of retirement and illness with compassionate insight and offers observations rather than advice. A distinctive slant on the aging process; highly recommended.”
“…the mood also amounts to a point of view: not rose-colored glasses but a strong, hopeful heart and an abiding belief in the power of love.”
“This insightful book has quite a bit to say about modern relationships, young and old, the most important of which may be that falling in love at 80 is not much different from falling in love at 18.”
The Daily Sound
“There is an amazing amount of food for thought in this book. Mixing advice and societal study, author Abigail Trafford includes interviews with real people, hard research and data, and stories that will sound all-too-familiar to anyone who’s had a relationship… If you’ve ever been in love, if you are struck by the fact that the number of years you have left are fewer than the number of years you’ve lived, or if you’re looking anew at an old relationship, you need this book. As Time Goes By is simply engaging.”
“From dealing with the challenges of retirement, illness, divorce, and remarriage to rediscovering that first love you never forgot, Trafford’s book is an exuberant Valentine to feeling connected at any age.”
