The theme carrying this wonderful book,TIME ASIDE, is reincarnation, from the Pink Mill on its cover to the last page. Setting the tone, Judge Constance Merrywell has just learned her son Jeremy, a med student, has ALS. Seeking courage and strength to deal with it all Constance escapes to her old hometown. And here, unexpectedly, an exciting new life embraces her. Colorful characters abound, keeping the plot moving ahead with twists and turns and colorful imagery. Art thefts, a revenge barn burning, a wedding or two, are just a few scenarios enclosed within its turning pages. I could not put it down.

An interesting read about the small town life of community, friendship and loving support. Anyone who has ever tried to understand our journey through life and its many challenges will enjoy sharing Judge Constance Merrywell's discoveries about love, loss and reincarnation.
The language is beautiful. The descriptions of small town life bring flashes of recognition from those who have ever been touched by them. One goes away wishing one has attended the parties featured in the book — the food, wine and company. An uplifting book that cheers the mind and warms your heart! Amy S. Kwei
