I could totally relate to some of this book. First of all, it starts out with Alyssa running an exercise class at the church. I do that! I knew right away that I would have some type of connection with her. My husband and I have talked about moving and seeing what this family went through made me realize how difficult it can be on the kids. I have a son who will be missionary age in less than two years now and even now he seems up and down--those struggles carry over, I'm sure. There were so many things that were similar to my life--crazy work and travel schedule for husband, distant teen daughter, picked on son, trying to balance church, motherhood, time for self, etc for the wife. Fortunately, my mother-in-law is perfectly fine, although she cared for her own mother-in-law who suffered from some health and memory problems (what a Saint!). I can't even imagine having to throw that into the mix.
I love how strong Aly becomes, yet she's far from perfect. The chapter titles were very fitting and all had to do with time. I loved how everything ended up--it was just right for the story.
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
You are quickly pulled into the story...wanting to know what happens next!
In life we have a beginning time, a middle time, and an end time..
It is in the middle time that Alyssa finds herself now...
The middle time of life....
AND the middle time of care-giving...
Still taking care of her children...and now taking care of her parent (her mother-in-law)
Life gets even crazier as she finds that her son is struggling, and she has to move her family to a new state with new schools, and her mother-in-law is showing signs of dementia and Alzheimer disease.
Wishing she could go back to a simpler time...
She realizes that this is her time to truly take care of her family...immediate and extended.
But that doesn't make this time and easy time.
Journey with Alyssa as she takes the time to anguish with the "pain of a missionary son who is questioning, a young teen who is being bullied, a daughter who is distant, a husband who is struggling, and a mother-in-law who is now hoarding and forgetting."
Is there 'STILL TIME' to keep everything "from falling apart?"
A FANTASTIC READ!
You will chuckle, weep, and rejoice with Alyssa and her family.
