Lynne Spreen's Reviews > Keeping Time
I enjoyed this story so much that I read half the first night. I liked that the main character, Daisy, is an old woman, almost 80, and she's smart and determined. In fact, there are a half-dozen characters in this book who are over forty, and they're portrayed as smart and inventive. There are several related subplots going on at once, which makes the book much more interesting. The characters are well-developed; you can see them, and they're sympathetic and relatable. They have goals and fight their way through obstacles to try to reach those goals (often with a lot of humor); they learn and grow. The only thing a bit off is that the author's style is to employ frequent use of incomplete sentences, but it's a minor objection. Keeping Time is a good enough book that I am curious to know if she's written anything else. A pleasure to read.
