Review & Giveaway: Times And Places

Author: Keith Anthony.
Genre: General Fiction.
Rating: đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«đŸ«


Ten years after his daughter Justine’s death, an anxious Fergus embarks on a cruise with his wife. On board, he meets a myriad of characters and is entranced by some, irritated by others and disgusted by one. These turbulent feelings, combined with a sequence of bizarre events, only lead to his increased anxiety.

In a series of flashbacks, Justine enjoys an ultimately short romance, a woman concludes she killed her and an investigating police officer is drawn into her idyllic world. Fergus, haunted by poignant memories, withdraws in search of answers. 

Back on the cruise, Fergus reaches breaking point, fearing he has done something terrible. By the time the ship returns, his world has changed forever.
Times and Places spans Atlantic islands, the Chiltern countryside, Cornish coasts and rural Slovenia, all of which provide spectacular backdrops to a humorous and moving tale of quiet spirituality.

Cover Review:

The cover is made up of two contrasting colours with orange foxes on a black background. It's simple, artistic and beautiful. 

Book Review:

Times And Places is a book that brings out the extraordinary in ordinary situations. It shows us that even the tiniest happenings can alter our whole future. 

Justine's death is shocking because of how it happened. The simple decision of taking a bus led her to her demise. Her story told me that even the most trivial things matter. 

"Don't worry," he replied with a smile, "I'll live." 
It didn't turn out to be a good prediction.

I loved how so many characters and their various stories were woven together in this beautiful novel.

The cruise taken by Fergus and his wife is full of so many beautiful descriptions of equally beautiful places. 

Times and Places features a myriad of characters, stories and emotions and will leave you with a jumble of feelings!
