Review by Loraine Oliver - A Wicked Women Reviewer
Our Time is a book I would highly recommend to anyone who likes a good love story, but it is so much more than that. It is the story of a woman, who no matter what happens to her, takes the initiative in her life to live, and to be happy. After a series of unfortunate events in her life and a fight with cancer, her husband leaves her when he finds out she is going to have a baby.He serves her divorce papers and is gone with the wind. Luckily she has a few good friends who are there for her, but after her little girl is almost two, she decides to move and now is several hours away from all that she knew, and she is alone. Her daughter is a beautiful little girl, Olivia, and her dog is her best friend, who has been with her since the beginning of her sickness and there when she had her baby and is almost human in his mannerisms! Jocelyn just wants to have a happy life for her daughter and that is the most important thing in her life.
Andrew Carter is a wonderful man, and he was there when his parents died and he stepped up and finished raising his little sister, she is now happily married and he just goes on in life, working having an occasional date, and so he is basically alone. When Jocelyn moves next door and she is trying to get everything done, and he hears all the noise going on next door he gets up to let them know he just got off work and they are being too noisy. When Jocelyn answers the door with her beautiful little daughter in her arms and her dog by her side, he is surprised and after finding out she has no one helping her move and no husband he steps up and helps her. From that moment on, they are almost always together and both of them start having feelings for each other. Jocelyn is afraid to take a chance however as she has had to be strong and always do it on her own, and is having a hard time letting Andrew help her, but the little girl loves him from the very first and she steals his heart and Jocelyn does as well.
What follows you will have to read and find out but the question remains, will she tell him she is living on borrowed time, will he be willing to love her anyway, and what will happen with the beautiful little Olivia, who now has her Mom but also Andrew who loves her.
There were a lot of wonderful scenes in this book, it was well written and there was a little angst between the main characters, of an emotional type. Things happen that make you feel like laughing, but also there are things that happen that will make you cry with despair, and I felt while I was reading this book that I actually knew the characters and was taking this trip with them!
Do yourself a favor and read this book, you will be so glad you did. This book is one of my favorite books this year, and I know it will be many others as well when they read it.
I gave this book a 5***** star rating, and look forward to many more books from this author!
