    One thought on “Maybe This Time”

    1. This review was originally published at Dear AuthorDear Ms. Kilby:When I was growing up, every kid on the playground knew the perfect chant to embarrass some poor boy and girl. “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage.” Still, it was–and still is–the stereotypical dream of many girls and boys. The idea that marriage and children are the portrayed as the desirable foundation of happiness makes many angry, sad, disappointed, and/or betrayed. In the years [...]

    2. I liked this. I thought it was one of the better ones of the genre. I did put it down for a while, but that seems to be something I do these days.There's a lot going on, but I think Kilby really does justice to it all and, if anything, it went on a little too long. It also felt very real as people dealt with the various issues having kids or NOT having kids can bring.I also thought it did a good job showing real, not annoying, miscommunication. I really understood why they had trouble communicat [...]

    3. Second chance stories come in all types and sizes. This one is better than most because of the secrets surrounding the mutual tragedy this ex-wife and ex-husband share and how their newborn son helps them to see beyond the past to savor the present and look to future.Set in Australia, it could have occurred anywhere, but the atmosphere created in Darcy's pub and around Emma's work as a geriatric nurse bring additional reality to this touching story.Warning: you may need a hanky at times.

    4. Kudos for taking on search difficult themes like losing a child and post natal depression. That's what the 2 stars are for. Unfortunately I didn't think she managed to carry them off sympathetically, in particular with respect to the h. I could quote chapter and verse on the h's contrary behaviour, but I can't be bothered. Not all her thoughts and actions could be put down to the difficulties she's facing. I didn't find the H particularly likable but at least he wasn't so contrary. Ended by skim [...]

    5. I don't think I've ever read a book that simultaneously makes me want to cry and sigh and go "aww". It delves quite surprisingly deep into the H/h's emotions for a book in this genre, I really enjoyed it. The history the couple share is heartbreaking, and the way they plod through their encounter's together is exasperating at times, but it's definitely worth it in the end.

    6. Joan Kilby writes such wonderfully realistic characters, a real joy to read.Her heroes are particularly poignantrong, beta guys you can't help but fall in love with.Really enjoyed this story of a marriage torn apart by grief and repaired by a couple happy to confront their failures and learn from them.
