Lydia stays there for several minutes, feeling the love inside her heart seep into the earth and down into his coffin. She pictures it making the grass grow in the spring and feeding the trees, and she feels her tears drying up. Finally, standing to her feet, and dusting herself off, she blows him another kiss and promises to come back again soon. She walks to her car and drives the short distance to her home, passing the Victorian era neighborhoods in which she played and grew up and walked with Thomas the months when their lives intersected at these same corners and points of the city they both loved.
My Book Review:
All This Time is a very touching story that follows Lydia Fadoul on her quest for answers behind her fiance Thomas' suicide upon returning home from his tour in Iraq.
Author Tiffani Burnett-Velez weaves a riveting and emotional tale that easily draws the reader into Lydia's quest for answers behind the mystery surrounding Thomas' actions while in Iraq that ultimately led to his traumatic spiral downwards from the effects of PTSD and tragic suicide. The story takes the reader on a thrilling roller coaster ride that will have them experiencing the gamut of emotions as the tragic tale of mystery, murder, and betrayal unfolds. You can't help but sympathize with Lydia as she stands by the memory of her fiance while shouldering the burden of searching for the truth.
The author weaves a realistic and intense tale that delves into the issues of PTSD, suicide, racism, prejudice, discrimination, murder, and the politics of war. All This Time is a thought provoking story that will make the reader pause and ponder the harsh realities and the tragic cost of war that is placed upon our military service people and their families.
