Carefully crafted and compelling
I started reading this book expecting it to be a love story, but soon realized it is so much more than that. A Time for Everything is a story of rebuilding lives and hearts in the midst of the destruction caused by the Civil War. It touches topics of grief, loss, love, faith, hope, freedom, and education. Studying to be a teacher myself, I especially enjoyed Portia's wise words on learning and teaching.
From the very beginning of the story, I got pulled in. The plot twits kept me turning pages eagerly, and I found myself going to bed way to late more than once because I simply couldn't stop reading! Emotions run high throughout the whole story, making it a fast-paced book. All the action was also a pleasant surprise.
There are so many thoroughly developed characters and stories in this book, it's a wonder how the author managed to weave it all together into an elegant novel that both makes sense and doesn't leave loose ends.
Although, some dialogues were a bit cheesy for me (in a cute, but somewhat unrealistic kind of way), the story was sweet and enjoyable.
I would recommend this carefully crafted novel to all fans of historical fiction.

A Time for Everything by Mysti Parker is a touching, historical romance set in Tennessee during the reconstruction period after the Civil War. It is a heart-wrenching story of losses, survival and love. The novel is well written with complex characters and sub-plots that support the divide and tensions of the Confederate and Yankee society. I was immediately connected to Portia, Johnny and Beau. The romance between Portia and Beau blossomed slowly, which I felt was believable. The last minute action-packed chapters failed for me. Although I am not a romance genre fan I enjoyed this novel and I would recommend this book to all the historical-romance affectionados.
