Review: Time To Keep

Time To Keep
by Susan Cody

Star Prescott reluctantly takes her doctor’s advice to relax away from her office in a cold dank castle keep in northern England. But when she investigates a strange noise down a dark corridor, she embarks on a journey that changes her forever.

The man she encounters seems familiar to her. Has she seen him somewhere before? Star quickly realizes she shouldn’t be in this place or this time, but it’s too late. Her presence has changed things. Now how does she fix the mess she has made and give Colin Kendall the future he deserves?

Is there any way to protect her heart, or is it too late for that, as well? Has she fallen in love with a man she shouldn’t even know? Is she out of time with Colin, or will there be Time to Keep?

When Star Prescott is practically forced by her doctor to take a vacation in northern England for her health’s sake, she has no idea what’s in store for her. With all the modern conveniences she’s used to lacking in the castle where she’s staying, she takes a self-guided tour around the place and discovers a door that leads her back in time to meet a famous musician who would change her world forever.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I love time travel stories. It’s why I chose to read this one, and I wasn’t disappointed. There are certain elements to time travel stories that all see to be the same or similar. But this story was still different somehow, and very much enjoyable. And I say that sincerely, because I’m not usually a big fan of the 60s. The opening chapter was a little slow, with too much detailed description of surroundings. But once the story really got started, it didn’t let up until the very end. I just kept reading on because I had to know what was going to happen to Star and her musician.

If you’re looking for a sweet, gripping read, this one’s for you.
