I can not say enough good things about this book! It is gentle, serene, simple... I had a peaceful calm come over me as I read. Neither Present Time is just good honest writing by a brilliant wordsmith. With lovable, characters that are easy to relate to and an interesting story line it is easy to lose yourself in this story. I devoured it page by page, word by word until I was told in no uncertain terms to come to bed, of course this was at 1:30 in the morning..... pouting the whole way I did as I was bid but I was back to it as soon as I could the next morning.
The novel is defiantly a heart warmer with lots of contented sighs. It is beautiful and emotional, with aww moments and angry moments, sorrow and joy. The many interpersonal relationships between the four women in their separate lives and again when they are together are wonderful, realistic and relevant. The secondary characters were also perfectly portrayed and gave such insight on how and why these women are who they are. This drama just really touched me and words to do justice to it escape me.
There has never been a more perfect ending to any book I've ever read. It literally made me cry, mostly from happiness but also because there were so many feelings in the book that there was nothing left in me to give than my tears. I love the book all the more because it made me feel this way.
This book jumps back and forth through time, but these are graceful transitions and not at all confusing. I liked the way this author managed this. Cory (Corinne) and Helen met when both women were young. Aggie and Beryl met when they were both young. Aggie is Cory's niece and caretaker to the elder Cory. Their lives seem to intersect in syncopation, meeting and moving away in a perfect rhythm.
As Cory and Helen try to navigate their love and their lives during WWII and beyond, Aggie and Beryl try to navigate theirs through family obligations and obstacles. Finally, determined to live their lives as they wish, all the women find times of great love, great responsibility and great highs and lows. Their stories are compelling.
Peripheral characters have reasons for being in the story and are important as lessons learned and love given and accepted.
