Timelapse by Lorrie Farrelly is a story about Alex Morgan, single father of 4-year-old Jack, and Assistant Professor at Capitol University in Georgetown. When Alex is still a student in graduate school, his wife, Casey is tragically killed in a drunken car accident. The 24-year-old Alex is left to raise their infant son by himself with the help of his mother, Frannie. Emotionally scarred, Alex believes he has experienced grief in the worst way, and the only other potential pain he can imagine is losing his son, around whom his life revolves. Little does Alex know something terrible is looming in the near future. After an inexplicable break into his office at the university, Alex finds himself in a time warped present day, and discovers that the grief from his past is nothing compared to what is possible in the cruel reality of this alternate universe.
Lorrie Farrelly is an incredible writer. Timelapse literally kept me on my toes. This is such a remarkable novel. I started reading it and could not put it down until I finished. I felt as if I were actually in the story, experiencing the emotion and pain that Alex felt after his wife died; the fear of not knowing where in time he would end up next, and the riptide that coursed through his body as he contemplated whether he would ever be reunited with his son. This novel greatly moved me. It made me reflect on the rights and freedoms that I, as well as many others, take for granted. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to be emotionally awakened.
