Keeping Time by: Stacey McGlynn
3 out of 5 stars
This story is of Daisy Phillips an older women who dosn't want to be just an "old lady" to everyone, her friends and family included. The people closest to her in her life are the same people forcing her into making huge changes in her life. While a personal decision to travel to the United States brings about the biggest changes on all.
This novel has a quirky humor to it, and while it was a really quick, heart-warming story, i felt it moved a little slow and that there wasn't enough to really keep me enthralled in the novel. The characters were easy to like and i liked the unique-ness that they each brought to the story. The plot itself had some really good message as well, that you only life once, that lifes too short to not do what's important for you, and also doing what makes your happy for you and nobody else.
Overall. this was worth picking up and reading, i just don't feel its a book you need to run right out and buy. This is Stacey McGlynns' Debut Novel and i look forward to seeing what else she has in store for us
