Different Time by Michael K. Hill
Keith Nolan falls in love with a remarkable young woman from the past, talking to him on a home video she recorded in 1989. To keep their conversation going, he must find more of her tapes—while forces work against them both, and time is running out.
It’s the 2nd day of #UltimateBlogTour organised by TheWriterReads on Tour and I’m really greatful I could be part of it.
When I first read The Artsy Reader review and saw that it’s about soulmates I knew I have to read this book. Two people fighting against time to be with each others? Count me in for it!
The story is told from to POV’s: Lindsay’s in year 1989 and Keith’s in year 2019. Lindsay is 19 year old girl who is trying to find her way through life. She wants to be an artist but her mother disagres with her and insisting that she can’t live like that. Feeling like she’s alone Lindsay decides to create video diary. But she defenitly didn’t expected that while recording she will get answear from the man watching it 30 years later.
Keith is average guy who has a job that he dislikes but it helps him get money to pay bills and that’s good enough for him. His only life goal is to collect whole X-Men comic collection. In order to do so he goes to flea markets to find the missing comics. One day he finds home video tape which change his life completely.
The relationship between Keith and Lindsay is simply amazing. Thanks to their conversations they both learnt a lot about each other and found strenght and purpose in their life. I was cheering for them from their meeting and was praying for my suspisions were right. I won’t tell you if they were or not but I will tell you that ending is really emotional and it took me a day to sort out my thoughts and write this review.
I have to say it’s one of my favorite reads in this year and I surely add it to books I want to reread.
