Echoes of Time

I’ve read a couple of the Guernsey Novels prior to this and while they all provide excellent reading with strong characters, fantastic plots along with plenty of twists and turns to keep you rooted, and of course, the idyllic Guernsey settings, Echoes of Time is by far my favourite to date. Anne Allen has pulled out all the stops with this one.

The story is full of suspense and mystery as Natalie’s new life in present time Guernsey echoes with that of Olive’s in the 1940’s German occupation of the island. The parallels between their lives cause a stir of mixed emotions of anger, distress, fear and hopelessness as they each strive and yet seemingly fail to escape a life filled with overwhelmingly abusive situations.

While dealing with her own grueling present day situation, Natalie’s new life is also fraught with paranormal occurrences in her new home and frightfully realistic dreams as the echoes of Olive’s past life attempt to reach out to the present in a plight of desperation.

Echoes of Time is superbly written and a most excellent read.
