If you are a romantic at heart, you don't want to miss out on her work.
She really has a great ebb and flow when it comes to writing about matters of the heart.
This is the second book that I've read and reviewed by Author Euphonos Aus. The first, "Wings of Emotion" is a book of poetry. Now in reading "Pieces of Time"...a fictional novel filled with dreams and different stages of love, it is very easy for the reader to see that Ms. Aus is a true romantic.
Linda, the protagonist is caught up in the evolution of her love experiences. Early in the novel, she explains her first crush, Ian...and then her subsequent love encounter with Michael and the challenges and sometimes painful feelings she faces. She keeps her tears to herself and "when she felt like crying, she was in the closet crying so that no one would hear her."
Linda senses that Michael is the one for her but then her heart is torn into a million pieces. The conflicting emotions...almost too much to bear; means she definitely needs time to figure things out...alone time, to mend and to heal. Michael definitely knows he doesn't deserve her but he has come to realize how much he loves her. Is it too late...or will they find their love again? Great read for the YA audience.

Growing Up & Liking It
Euphonos’ choice of poetic writing makes for a great setting for the development of Linda’s character by welcoming us into her inner world. By the end of the book, I felt like I knew a lot about Linda. It also builds a safe context in which readers to be welcomed into a reflection about the concepts of relationships and gender dynamics, as well as those of pain, kindness and loss
However, there is still a lot of work to be done for Pieces of Time to go from an interesting read to a gem, and I believe that there is potential for this to happen, as some sections of the book shine brightly, sometimes even breathtakingly so. And so, while the writing in Pieces of Time is a little choppy, with confusing breaks in the story rather than the elegant tangents poetic writing often creates, it might be worth reading just for the opportunity to be able to see how Euphonos grows as an author.
I loved how the author wove the main character's family into the story. It makes the main character, Linda seem more real. I rarely see that in modern writing. Isn't that one of the things that made Twilight so special? We got to know Bella's father who was an important part of the story. In Pieces of Time, Linda's family plays a part in the story. There are some shocking surprises in store for Linda regarding her family.
At the heart of the story is the romance of Linda and Michael that goes through many ups and downs. The romantic passages in this book are deeply personal and some of the best I've ever read. Leave it to a poet to write such passion into romantic scenes. Highly recommended.
Top reviews from other countries
The endearingly fragmented narrative style is uncontrived, true to the existentialist shaping of all good coming of age accounts. Many passages read more like poetry than prose, showcasing the unique talent of this gifted author.
Euphonos writes bravely, honestly and humbly, winning her readers' empathy and trust. The semi-abstract crafting embodies the purest form of 'indie' authorship. Pieces of Time is soulfully penned, resulting in a rare, authentic harmony of noblesse and naiveté which we, as compassionates, so value and warm to.
The storytelling's endearingly combined rawness and instinctive poetic imagery carries us to its conclusion without judgment towards our young protagonist's romantic starts and stumbles. This is a refreshingly natural tale of unfolding emotional maturation.
We all know this journey, hence the book's sweet, peculiar resonance. Highly recommend to readers of romance and Young Adult fiction
