Here’s Time of My Life, Again

Our lives are filled with “what if’s” and “givens,” the latter being an event destined to happen. And, after reading the ARC of Time of My Life a year and a half ago, I knew its success was a “given.” Allison Winn Scotch had touched a universal memory nerve – that chord of imagination our mind plays for us whenever we may not be having the time of our lives.

And yet the truth of this novel answers not “would we go back” but “could we go back” to take that second chance and get it right this time? After all everything can turn on a dime, especially when trying to perfect the past.

If you wish to read a much more detailed account of the book, please read my presentation post, Allison Winn Scotch and Time of My Life, from October 6, 2008. However for a concise summation, here’s my “official” review:

Time of My Life may be initially thought of, chosen and read for its “what if” fantasy, yet the story is actually grounded in diverse and discomforting universal issues that are not limited to marrying the right man. Writing in a strong, confident and smart voice, Allison Winn Scotch is in total control of her protagonist’s indecisiveness and this is what gives the book a well-earned reality check mark. Whatever time of life you may be in, this novel is a reminder that the past holds the lure of potential but the present is where all things are created possible for the future. A most entertaining and thoughtful read, you’ll enjoy the escape into second chances.

*The answer is “Yes,” the NYT Bestseller List was a major part of the given. 😉
