Time to Bury the Past is a story that will stay with you long after the last page is read. I loved that the problems were so real to life, that the teenaged boys were troubled and less than perfect, and that the parents had to deal with the very legitimate problems of raising a child on their own. The story also gives readers a look at the sacrifices military men and women make that often go unnoticed. It was a beautifully written romance with plenty of conflict and emotion. I'm also a sucker for books in New Zealand, and the author brought the scenery to life magnificently. None of the characters were perfect, but they were all so well drawn that it was easy to relate to them, easy to sympathize with them. Definitely would recommend this wonderful novel…a must read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Time to Bury the Past is a brilliant read. I picked it up and would not and could not put it down till the last word was read. So, far this is my favorite book by Anne Ashby. The story is realistic. I felt like I was reading about a friend. I instantly like Kelsey right off. Zane on the other hand I was not so sure about but once I got to know him better. I was good with Zane. Dan and Cody are typical teenagers but they have a set of different problems. Kelsey, Zane, Dan and Cody all have demons they need to deal with. I love how they have to work on the problems and they just don't magically disappear. Ms. Ashby does an awesome job of drawing you into the story and developing the characters. I will admit I felt an array of emotions while reading Time to Bury the Past. Such as happiness, sadness, anger,disappointment, heartache, frustration, joy, understanding, relief and I even cried. I have a huge respect for the military world wide and I thank them and the ones the love and leave behind. This is a must read book and I will be reading this beautiful story again and more from Ms. Ashby she has some serious skills. If you have not check out Ms. Ashby check out her books!
just fyi this does have a handful of swear words and some descriptive touching. All sex is behind closed doors.

An emotional read you will not soon forget!
This novel is a story of two people trying to move on in their lives and in a sense, hide from their past. Kelsey has secrets about her past she has been keeping, secrets her son will soon discover and will change their lives. Zane has secrets about his past too, his son doesn’t know about them either. Both will have to face their pasts. Their sons are best friends, and soon begin to scheme that their parents will fall in love.
A well-written novel by Anne Ashby, you will feel every emotion as you read Time To Bury The Past! You will feel for the service men and women who serve their country, and for their families who are left behind.
