Rating: 4 ~ I Like It

A Time to Embrace is a story of love and forgiveness. Having weathered a near-divorce, John and Abby Reynolds are met with challenges that will put their faith in God and in each other to the test. A highschool football coach, John is struggling with work problems. As if that is not enough, tragedy strikes. John’s and Abby’s lives will never be the same again.

I found some parts of the story a bit “long-winded”. There were a few events in the story that did not need somewhat repetitive, long conversations. But despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed reading the whole book. It was a delightful and worthwhile read that I am sure many novel readers would enjoy. The overall plot was excellent, and many of the book’s themes were very relevant as they dealt with issues that happens in many families. This book is the second book in the Timeless Love Series. I have never read the first book, but reading A Time to Embrace has made me want to read the first book, A Time to Dance.
