Very enjoyable.....a bit of a mystery. Well written.
In Silver Springs, Maryland, Abby Reed meets Connor Smith, uncle to one of her students Jaye. The pair feels an instant attraction and now believes in love at first sight. Nothing could go wrong for this duo as they are compatible and so much in love, a miracle for Connor whose heart has been filled with hate for the past ten years------------------- However, as Abby and Connor continue to see one another, they soon learn a tragic link ties their families together that connection caused Connor¿s bitterness. A decade ago Abby¿s then teenage half-brother Drew Galloway killed Connor¿s seventeen years old sibling J.D. Drew was given twenty years with the possibility of parole after ten. Drew is up for parole and Abby wants to be there for her sibling who is not the monster that Connor believes he is. Connor wants him to at least serve his full sentence. Will love be enough to bring two people and two families past a tragedy that haunts all of them or will the past kill the future?----------------- A TIME TO FORGIVE is a fascinating family drama in which the star-crossed lead couple argues over whether J.D. was a paragon and Drew a monstrous cold blooded killer. Most entreating is Connor¿s other family members, his mom, sis, and niece, as the death of their blood has filled their hearts with acrimony and thus no one has truly been there for one another until Abby entered their lives. Fans of complicated relationship tales will want to read Darlene Gardner¿s fine tale as readers will wonder whether Connor picks love or hate.------------- Harriet Klausner
