What Time Is It There? by Glenice Whitting is the story of an unlikely friendship between two women that lasted a lifetime. On a trip to Australia's Outback, American poet Maggie Jackson and her husband Hank met Diane Simpson, an Aussie woman who had recently become a mother. Soon, a burgeoning friendship developed between the two extraordinary women. Over the following decades, Diane and Maggie wrote letters to keep each other posted on what was happening in their personal lives. Maggie navigated life with an abusive Hank, who had his demons to conquer. In the interim, Diane's writing had improved exponentially with Maggie's tuition, so much so that she was writing a book. But when Maggie revealed a secret she had buried for years, it threatened to destroy their lifelong friendship.
What Time Is It There? is a slice-of-life tale that examines the human condition and the absurdities of life through its characters. Glenice Whitting's engaging novel follows the lives of two women from vastly different backgrounds who formed an unconventional friendship that served as their escape from the rigors of everyday existence. The plot revolves around Diane's and Maggie's characters, with each woman finding something in the other that had been missing from their own lives. While Diane gravitated to Maggie due to her intellect and charisma, Maggie stuck with Diane to follow a life she wished she was living. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will gladly recommend it.
