Eva Jordan’s much-anticipated follow up to the bestselling `All The Colours In-Between’.
Writer, Lizzie Lemalf, and her loving but somewhat dysfunctional family are still grieving over the loss of a much-loved family member. Lizzie is doing her best to keep her family together but why does the recent death of a well-known celebrity have them all in a spin? The police suspect foul play; Lizzie and other family members suspect one another.
Lizzie begins searching for answers only to find herself being dragged back to the past, to 1960’s London to be exact, and to the former life of her father, that up until now she has never been privy to. Every family has its secrets but how can the past hold the key to a present day celebrity death? They say the past comes back to haunt you. Surely the truth will out? Maybe, but only time will tell…
This is the authors third book to feature Lizzie and her family. I would recommend reading All the Colour’s In-Between before reading this one though as think readers would benefit from having read it. It’s also a fabulous book.
I have been on so many highs and lows with this family and this novel was no different. What is slightly different though is that the story itself flicks between present day as well as the past where we get to know a lot more about Lizzie’s dad which I loved. I so adored his character in the previous novel and really enjoyed seeing what life was like when he first meets his wife to be and what life was like for them all when Lizzie was just a child herself. It really made for an enthralling read!
Eva Jordan’s writing is just mesmerising. Her books are not be rushed but rather savoured. There is so much depth and meaning in her novels and it’s hard not to get emotionally attached to what is happening to the characters. She has a knack of getting the readers emotions to build up, so much so I thought I was going to burst by the end and have to admit to shedding a few tears. You will have to read the novel yourself though to find out whether they are tears of happiness, sadness, or maybe even both.
Time Will Tell is such a beautifully written novel that totally captivated me. Whilst there is a bit of a ‘who dunnit’ gong on, this was very much a story about family and bonds. Eva Jordan is an author, who for me, just gets it so right. I really can’t praise her writing highly enough. Would certainly give this book more than five stars if I could.
