Everyone has been dying to know what happens. And if you've read the first two books, you know exactly the things I'm referring to. If you haven't read the first two books in the series, stop now and go read them!! Book 3 won't make a lick of sense to you if you haven't read the first two books in order.
Ok, so the first thing I did when I started reading A Gift of Time was TAKE MY TIME. Because everyone has been waiting on pins and needles for this book, I know they'll race through it to find out what happens because they're just dying, you know? I know I felt like I was dying plenty of times whenever anyone would post their theories in Author Beth Flynn's Facebook group. Well, if you race through it, I feel pretty sure you'll want to turn right around and do a re-read right away because you'll have missed stuff! So I read it slowly, and I took notes! 10 pages of notes! Not because the book is hard to follow or too complicated of a read, but because I forget stuff I read in the last paragraph so I needed to make sure I didn't forget anything I thought was relevant. And I wrote down a lot of questions. Beth was a master at setting up each and every chapter. I wasn't sure I liked the third person narrative at first, but after a few chapters I actually loved it because even though a chapter was titled Ginny and we get mostly her thoughts in it, we still got Grizz's or Tommy's thoughts or actions as well so I didn't feel like I was missing anything by being in a Ginny POV chapter.
Another note about the chapters. I seriously don't know how she did it, but Beth set them up in such a way that each chapter ended with me either gasping in surprise, stunned at something she reveals, or smiling happily when questions from previous chapters were answered. For someone who is considered a "relatively new" author, Beth has impressed me with her writing skills more than some of the authors I've been reading for years!
We are introduced to some new characters in this book, and I can already see a few of them who I am hoping and praying Beth writes a story for. Mimi and Jason took center stage in this story with Ginny, and it was heartwarming to see how truly devoted to her children she is. I believe Beth mentioned somewhere that this book was really about Ginny and I couldn't agree more with that statement. We see Ginny truly grow and do a serious amount of soul searching in this book. As we saw in the other books, Ginny relies very heavily on her spiritual faith. She needs it to get through all of the challenges and tribulations she has faced in her life, and continues to face in this book. But she is a very strong woman, and her heart is pure and selfless. I admired her in the first two books, but seriously admired and respected her in this story. For me to say that I admire and respect a fictional character probably sounds silly, but she didn't feel fictional to me. None of the characters did, the story didn't and it takes a unique talent to be able to pull a reader so deeply into a story that you feel like the whole thing is real.
I was really just blown away by this book and the conclusion to the Grizz/Ginny/Tommy saga. I hope it's truly not the conclusion for them though. I hope that if Beth writes some of the spin off books that the readers are already begging for that we get to still see them. That would make me very happy!
Bravo, Beth!! This series is one that I can see myself re-reading continuously, and I bet that each time I do, I'll find some clue or tidbit that I missed the previous time reading. I am so, so happy that I found this series and this author! I am excited to find out what Beth has in store for us in the future.
First - What in the world happened to Grizz?????? Grizz was so bad that you were pretty horrified that you ended up wanting him and Ginny together in the beginning. He did terrible things, he was COMPLETELY unapologetic, and he was who he was - the only thing that really made him redeemable was his crazy love for Ginny. I expected that Grizz would still be Grizz in this book. I would have definitely understood that he was more patient - 15 years of waiting can teach someone to be patient - but he came out in this book like Grizz-Lite rather than Grizz...it really felt like a different character.
Then, there's Ginny - she irritated me more than a little. I didn't care for how she seemed to think Tommy could do no wrong despite all of the revelations that came out of book 2, but that could be more about Tommy than anything else...which brings me to my biggest irritation....
Tommy - I hated him, and all of the crap he did in book 2 that (IMO) showed his true colors yet in this book that was all kinda skimmed over. It felt like the author really wanted Tommy to be the good guy, to be the "saint" that he tried to paint himself to be in Ginny's eyes all along when he was really not much different than Grizz ever was. The only difference was that Grizz was out in the open. You knew who he was and what he was all about but Tommy played games and pretended to be something he wasn't. It was very disappointing to me all around.
Overall, this book left me a little more than disappointed - but still looking forward to what the author has planned since I'm really wondering about Christian and Mimi.
