This novel is a story of two people trying to move on in their lives and in a sense, hide from their past. Kelsey has secrets about her past she has been keeping, secrets her son will soon discover and will change their lives. Zane has secrets about his past too, his son doesn’t know about them either. Both will have to face their pasts. Their sons are best friends, and soon begin to scheme that their parents will fall in love.

A well-written novel by Anne Ashby, you will feel every emotion as

Time to Bury the Past is a brilliant read. I picked it up and would not and could not put it down till the last word was read. So, far this is my favorite book by Anne Ashby. The story is realistic. I felt like I was reading about a friend. I instantly like Kelsey right off. Zane on the other hand I was not so sure about but once I got to know him better. I was good with Zane. Dan and Cody are typical teenagers but they have a set of different problems. Kelsey, Zane, Dan and Cody all have demons ...more

Time to Bury the Past by Anne Ashby led me into the lives of Kelsey and Zane. I first want to touch on the emotional toll of this fantastic read. The pacing of this romance reeled me in and didn’t let me go. I remained hooked literally wondering what else the world would throw at these two single parents who needed a helping hand in completely different ways.

Kelsey’s past and how it shaped her gave incredible insight to why she refused to allow love in her life. I had to really think about the

Time to Bury the Past was an excellent story.
Zane Erickson, our naval hero, was a great character. He was strong, brave and fought for what's right and good. Plus he was caring. It was interesting to hear about his history in the military. His life has made him a good soldier and a bit stubborn. After years fighting he is now taking care of his son. But forming a bond is not so easy.
Our heroine, Kelsey, is a strong and caring single mother. She went through a lot i

Time to Bury the Past is a story that will stay with you long after the last page is read. I loved that the problems were so real to life, that the teenaged boys were troubled and less than perfect, and that the parents had to deal with the very legitimate problems of raising a child on their own. The story also gives readers a look at the sacrifices military men and women make that often go unnoticed. It was a beautifully written romance with plenty of conflict and emotion. I'm also a sucker fo ...more

I have just this second finished reading Time to bury the past. I loved it at so many different levels. The story line is interesting and keeps you hooked till the end. I enjoyed the characters who were both strong in their own way, but both needing to get through trails in order to find love. If you want a true romance with heart tugging, heart flipping romance then this is the book for you!
Well done Anne looking foreward to your next Book!
