'For Such a Time as This' is a wonderful mix of romance, history, and Everyman characters that everyone can relate to. This is a quick read and you will be caught up in the lives of Jill McKendrick, Rafe Kennedy and others as their hopes, dreams, and destinies criss-cross over time and place. Ms. Klima's first novel is a relaxing, rewarding read.
It was so interesting I spent the whole weekend reading it. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next.
Great read. Hope there's a sequel about some of the minor characters.
'The architecture of western vocabulary and figurative picture-painting created by the Western-Christian writing of Lydia Klima portrays an unique feeling of the old western days. Bringing in the Christian thread results in an interesting reading and satisfying experience underscoring and revitalizing Christian beliefs.'
A very enjoyable storyline. Can't wait to see the next historical romance by Ms. Klima.
