    An excellent, captivating read

    A Time to Tell by Maria Savva<BR/>ISBN #1-905621-27-2<BR/>Publisher: Pen Press<BR/><BR/>A complex story about the life of Cara Hughes, I found this to be captivating from the first page. A family troubled from early on, the book spans a period of about fifty years beginning with an attempted suicide.<BR/><BR/>Cara met and fell in love with a man and believing the feelings to be mutual, she succumbs to his needs. And her own. Young, pregnant and expecting a future together, she¿s devastated to learn he¿s already married. And has other children. She doesn¿t tell him she suspects she is pregnant. Young and confused, Cara fails at a suicide attempt. <BR/><BR/>When she opens her eyes again, she¿s looking into the eyes of a man she doesn¿t know, but in time, they fall in love and marry. They have several children. Unknown to Billy, Cara¿s husband, Benjamin, their first born, is not his son. <BR/><BR/>Life is good except for one small detail. Benjamin is a troubled young man who doesn¿t resemble their other children and he¿s bullied most of his younger life. A fact he never tells Cara and Billy. And it later makes its mark on Benjamin, who then passes his anger on to his own wife. He then disappears, without a word to his mother or father. For some time.<BR/><BR/>Another factor into the story, which you have to follow closely, is that Cara and her sister had a falling out years before and she¿s later reunited under some unusual circumstances when she is literally ¿dropped off¿ there to live. Amazingly, the two women are able to finally get the truth out into the open and mend fences put up 50 years earlier.<BR/><BR/>A poignant, believable but complex story, that is well written and articulated. It¿s filled with lively conversation, true-to-life characters and weaved into the various time periods are all the necessary details, which help explain the events of the past that led the characters to the point of relationship they are at, at that point in time.<BR/><BR/>An excellent, captivating read. You won¿t want to put it down, but do need to be prepared for an interesting journey into the life of Cara requiring total concentration.<BR/><BR/>Reviewed by Cindy Bauer - Christian Fiction Author & Speaker<BR/><BR/>Cindy is the author of two Inspirational Fiction Novels, Chasing Memories & Shades of Blue and a member of the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers). She is an avid reader, employed with her local newspaper in page design and assists with editing and proofreading copy before publication.

    A worthwhile read

    A Time to Tell raises important issues surrounding what has been named `domestic violence¿. It was interesting 'and sad' to see how history repeated itself throughout the generations, echoing the tragic dilemma of humankind. However, the switch between `times¿ was cleverly done in this sophisticated story of Cara and her family, giving a good insight into the relationships to which we can all relate. A Time to Tell has a great prologue that creates enough intrigue to pull in the reader and has a fabulous twist at the end.

    A reviewer

    A Time To Tell is a contemporary work of fiction, beginning in 1952, with the majority of the story taking place in the present. There are flashbacks to explain what has happened and why. The story also has a delightful, special romance, and although love, Cara¿s love, is what spins the story, this is not a conventional romance. *** In 1952, at age nineteen, Cara falls deeply in love with Frederick, and they see each other often. She believes he loves her as much as she does him, and envisions marrying him and starting a family. She suspects she may be pregnant, but isn¿t sure. Then Frederick tells her he is married with children. Cara is devastated. She attempts suicide, but is saved. *** Forward fifty years to present time and she¿s a widow, with three children, and living with her granddaughter. She never told anyone, even her deceased husband, about her suspicions concerning her first-born son¿s paternity. At this point, she has no interest in telling secrets. However, secrets, not just Cara¿s secrets, but secrets from all the family members propel this story. Each secret is a story in itself, and they all interweave with the other. Confined to a wheelchair because of her Multiple Sclerosis, Cara can¿t walk away when unpleasantness arises. She ignores and pretends until forced to face facts. Even until the end, she doesn¿t want to face her own feelings, afraid she might again be left as devastated as she was fifty years ago. The writer does a good job portraying Cara. Her voice, her quarrelsome speech and thought rings true. Each character and their changes ring true. I can¿t say more without spoiling the story. *** A Time To Tell was a delight, and I recommend it highly.

    A Maria Savva Masterpiece

    A Time To Tell is the spellbinding story of Cara Hughes, and the dark secrets that plague her and her family. From the time she first falls in love, and that relationship's tragic ending, to meeting her first love again as an elderly woman, we are transported as voyeurs through the heartbreak of Cara's life.

    Now, confined to a wheelchair, Cara must confront the torrent of problems that have coursed their way down through her family, washing over each in turn, inflicting suffering on those she truly cares for. After years of heartache and denial, Cara must finally face her own role in the circumstances of her life. She must bring her own hidden secrets out into the light of familial scrutiny.

    Maria Savva weaves a tapestry of misfortune and turmoil that draws you in and drapes you in its story. Each throw of the weaver's shuttle brings out another detail of the emotional hardships of Cara and her family's lives, forcing them further from each other and closer to your own heart. Savva's mastery of dialogue allows you to live inside this woven fabric of Cara's world and feel the genuine sorrow of each character.

    A Time To Tell is a book not to be missed.

    WHO SAYS THE NOVEL IS DEAD?

    Thank you Maria Savva for reminding us all that the novel is still alive and well!<BR/><BR/>"A Time to Tell" begins with the attempted suicide of Cara Hughes; In love with, and carrying the child of a man she's just learned is already married. Spanning some 50 years and weaving a complex, multi-generational saga of love, family, relationships, abuse and healing, Maria Savva's tale can trace its roots back to the classic novels of the Bronte sisters -- though as compelling and thoroughly entertaining as a runaway bestseller such as "The Thorn Birds".<BR/><BR/>A great novel rich in theme and scope; brought to life by a masterful storyteller. Maria Savva is a rising star on the horizon by whose light we can all chart our literary course.

    Not recommended

    This is one of the poorest written books I've read in a long time. For such and important subject the characters are extremely shallow and boring. I'm 3/4s of the way through the book and I don't care about any of them. Sad piece of work.
