Review: All In Good Time

All in Good Time
by Marty Kindall

When Philadelphian Elizabeth Temple arrives in a small, Southern town to teach first grade in 1948, she hopes to slide unnoticed into a spinster's existence, believing herself unfit for any companion. She doesn't count on falling for handsome Jake Ryan, a World War II veteran tainted by a scandalous divorce now struggling to raise his young son alone. Despite an undeniable chemistry, the road to romance is strewn with roadblocks and detours. Between the personal secret that has a devastating grip on Elizabeth, and Jake's temperamental, soon-to-be-ex-wife, what looks like a 'sure thing' could easily slip away.

Marty Kindall has written a wonderful book in “All in Good Time.” Her characters are real and the plot is easy to fall into.

The main character (Elizabeth Temple) carries with her a heart-rending secret that makes her feel as if she will never have the life she truly wants. She leaves her home to start over elsewhere, planning to live as a teacher and spinster. However, her plans are interrupted when she meets Jake Ryan, the handsome -- and single -- father of one of her students.

Every reader will find someone in this story they can relate to. I’d highly recommend this book as a comfort read to anyone who wants to curl up on a chilly winter evening or relax in the shade on a warm summer day.

This is one of the best short novels I’ve read in a long time and one I’m not likely to forget.
