Sabrina’s love life hasn’t been positive for the past eight years. When she overhears a nurse bragging about her recent engagement, she discovers her ex-boyfriend, Kyle, has obviously moved on. In Time Will Tell, Annette Anders composes the story of two people emerging from ruined relationships and progressing from the pain of loss. Sabrina visits her brother in Baltimore and decides that she needs a big change. She moves to Washington, D. C, and applies for several jobs. She has an interview with Scott, and the pair seem at ease with each other during the interview. Scott tries to hide his depression from losing his girlfriend, Marnie. Her death has caused him to stay close to her parents, to the point where they give him two letters they felt they couldn’t open. When Scott opens the letters, the revelation shocked him. He runs into Sabrina, and they both agree to be friends since they were comfortable confiding in one another. What did Scott read in the letter? Can Sabrina get past her relationship with her ex?
Annette Anders wrote a lovely romance story that I could relate to. I had been in a seven-year relationship that ended, and by moving to a new town, I found myself capable of moving past my ex. Being a social worker for families, Sabrina’s ability to pick up on Scott’s depression was a strength that I found interesting. Likewise, in Time Will Tell, Sabrina presents as confident and independent, yet her insecurities were also easy to discern. The character development was thorough, and I could connect with both, since their motivations and thoughts were realistic. The transitions between the views of Scott and Sabrina were seamless. The friendship they developed made any chance for romance possible, but their actions were plausible to me. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a slow burn, realistic romance.
