Wonderful, complicated love
Poignant. Reflective. Satisfying.
Definitely the funeral.
The tone and timbre of his voice was perfect for a book about a 79 year old but his skill kept the narration fresh.
Bethany - she's a straight shooter and compassionate.
Ripples Through Time is an exquisite, thoughtful examination of life, love and the mosaic of memories that make us who we are. I loved this book because it kept unfolding in meaning and substance as it went along, which is why literary fiction is so rewarding. Calvin is not a simple man, nor is the life he shared with his late wife Millie or the relationship he has with his grown children. But there is depth there and complex joy and a strength that made this book a winner for me. I guarantee you will find yourself pausing every now and then because something you've read has triggered a memory and if you're like me you'll also find yourself picking up the phone to make sure that the people in your life know how much you really love them. Excellent book!
