Summary

Salt Lake County, Present Day
Sam Carroll is living life in the fast lane—sleek cars, nice clothes, and lovely ladies have replaced the gospel values he grew up with, and he's going nowhere fast. But when a serious car accident brings his fun to a screeching halt, Sam is left comatose, aware only of his older brother reading aloud from the hundred-year-old journal of an LDS bishop, Moroni Chadester. As Sam drifts in and out of consciousness, the words begin to take root in his mind.

Alpine, Utah, 1915
Standing on a dusty mountain road, Sam is bewildered. The cars are different. The clothes are different. Where—and when—is he? The answer comes from an impossible source: Bishop Moroni Chadester. Hurtled back in time by forces he can't understand, Sam finds his memories of modern existence quickly fading as he becomes immersed in a new life and a romance with the town beauty, Laney Williams. But as the pair becomes entangled in a murder mystery, the thrill of courtship is replaced by terror as fate conspires to bring the couple into the path of a killer. Little do they realize that the clock is ticking on more than their lives—Sam can't stay in the past forever. As danger looms every closer, Sam mush fight to save Laney. but can their love stand the test of time?

  

My Review

Another Time for Love was a story about one man's change of heart as he fights for life. It was at times pensive and contemplative as Sam learns life's lessons. There was a slight edge of danger, some inspiring moments, romance, and sweet moments between friends, family, and community members. 

I fell in love with these characters and the historical setting. Sam had to learn what hard labor was all about and he didn't shirk his responsibilities. Nor did he disrespect those that had taken him in like family or the girl that he fell in love with. He became a changed man. Then there was his friend John and his father, the bishop, as well as several other community members. Laney, of course stands out as does her little brother Joey. Their relationship was so sweet. I also liked Sam's family and the bond that formed through it all.

The story began as intriguing and kept my interest through to the end. The pace was steady with some intensity in places. There were some beautiful parts that came across as heartfelt. It can be difficult to accept the plausibility of the situation - of Sam going back in time while in his coma - and there was a bit of weirdness in the future outcome. However, readers who can accept it as it is in the story will find it enjoyable.

I would recommend Another Time for Love for those who enjoy LDS romance with time-travel, sweet romance, a little danger, some inspiration, and a heartfelt story. It was reminiscent of Nancy Campbell Allen's books and ponders the lessons that can be learned from those of the past.

  3. They can be kind of risky because it has to work and that can be hard to do. It was a good read and interesting how she worked the time-travel in.

  5. That's awesome! I just had Thai for the first time a few weeks ago with a friend (my husband had a bad experience once so we never go!) and it was delicious. Pretty spicy, though...
