The Time Will Come #31

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company, where we can spotlight those books that we've had sitting on our shelves for too long. Books that we really want to read but never seem to get around to.

I really want to read Revolution , I just don't know when I'll get around to it. I read Donnelly's other novel a few years ago, which was published under the title A Gathering Light here in the UK, and can remember thinking it was the best book I'd read in ages. She has a way of writing which really lets you inside the characters head, and rooting for them all the way. The book made me angry and sad, and feeling as if I knew the people in real life. I always think that this is the mark of a great book. Revolution also looks like a fab story. It weaves together two different stories from characters in different points in time.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Two girls, two centuries and an ocean apart, are thrust together in this gripping novel by the award-winning author of A Northern Light. Brooklyn high school student Andi Alpers feels at the end of several tethers when her father rescues her for a winter break excursion to France. When the ever-curious Andi discovers the ragged journal of an ill-fated Parisian actress, she falls under its thrall. When that emotional connection jolts into the presence, Alpers matures in sudden, unexpected ways.


  1. Ooo, this does sound good! I like dual storyline books - read it and let us know what it's like! :)

  2. I don't think I've ever read a book with multiple story lines at once before. I'll look forward to your review... whenever that may be :)

  3. I've wanted to read this one ever since I first was it! :)

    But I still haven't bought it, so... :(

    Hope you get round to it soon!!

  4. Well I am glad to know she's a good writer!
    Can't wait to read this one now, lots of people said it's good in my IMM post.
