First of all, I have to say that Time Of Grace is simply amazing! Kind of a cross between Stephen King's IT and Robert McCammon's Boy's Life, the story is set initially in '50's America where a small town teenager first befriends then falls in love with the girl next door. But something is happening in the local area and when tragedy strikes, the life of the main character and his close circle of friends is irreparably changed forever.... I loved this and thought it a wonderful novel! Catt Dahman is better known for her Z Is For Zombie series but is keen to point out that she is NOT a zombie writer, just catering to the law of supply and demand. Well, I personally think Catt should write more books like this one because this was just awesome - the supernatural element that appears mid-way through the book never feels forced and gives this coming-of-age tale an extra dimension and twist that lifts it high up and above any other similar styled stories by other authors I have read. I recommend this highly and think it is a first-rate little tale that left me wanting more. And that is always a good sign of a story, when you don't want it to end... If I had one criticism, it was that the ending was a little inconclusive but until then, it was highly adddictive with very strong characterisation and a real nostalgic feel that left me remembering my own childhood growing up in a small community. Reading this, at times, felt like reading a true-life account and that is another good sign of a great book, when the reader is almost convinced that the story is real... I would wholeheartedly recommend this and think it is a book that deserves much more attention!
