  1. I would like to thank NetGalley and Deeds Publishing for an ARC of The TImekeeper s Son by Sara Baker Wow This is an intriguing and complex novel dealing with modern day complications of family interactions during adverse times,poor decisions and consequences In my opinion Sara Baker explores the need to be accepted, peer pressure at all ages, loneliness, self worth and discovery and growth of the characters I do not want to give away any spoilers or repeat what is on the jacket cover, so I find [...]


  2. I love this character driven novel set in Georgia Baker explores how one mistake has repercussions that have the potential not only to shatter a family but to reverberate throughout a town How can we heal ourselves and each other in times of turmoil and what silver linings can we find once we are able to look past our own grief


  3. A moving and serious novel about mistakes, losses, forgiveness, and healing Sound like a thousand others That s only because the themes are universal and eternal It s what Baker does with them that makes this book unique and worth reading She begins by placing the characters in a carefully depicted setting a small town in Georgia and then introduces a shocking event that links people in the town who would otherwise never have met Although this kind of plot device can seem forced or contrived, Ba [...]


  4. The Timekeeper s Son explores the fragility of a family that has slowly unraveled over time I really liked Josh, who we know has challenges but is really stronger and resilient than his father who uses anger and withdrawal to be strong In fact, Josh keeps on with school and community service while his father hides and his mom unravels I liked Mom s infatuation with the art teacher and how she gets her mojo back through rediscovering her love of painting finding something that is hers and not ju [...]


  5. This is actually closer to 3.5 stars I enjoyed this book a lot The plot is nothing special, centering around an aspiring filmmaker teenager who gets involved into a car accident and his parents seperation However, the writing is gripping, some kind of magical The characters are so real and very much human, so realistically drawn you can almost feel them taking shape They are deeply flawed, they fuck up and they make mistakes not everything turns out okay, but that s how life is They are all very [...]



  6. For me, this novel is about forgiveness, both forgiving ourselves and forgiving the people we love but, it has enough depth that others will likely take away different messages Like all of us, the characters are flawed, making poor choices and learning to live with the consequences Baker develops them with a richness of detail that makes them feel real enough that you understand them and come to like them, despite their flaws What stands out most about this novel is Baker s poetic voice that bri [...]


  7. Thoughtful and with richly developed characters, this novel will draw you in to the lives of normal folks living normal lives until a tragedy changes the shapes of their futures.


  8. Sara Baker s first novel is at once a telling tale about relationships exploring the often gaping gulf between men and women and children and parents But while telling the tale, we are unwittingly embarking on an edge of your seat ride with one of the main characters There are themes of love, loss, and best of all, forgiveness The reader experiences Josh s aching journey of growing up How refreshing too, to have characters such as Hal and Helen, struggling with the how to s of parenthood I would [...]


  9. Well written, moving, scenes of almost unbearable intensity The author had done a great job of presenting the different ways men and women think, their different perspectives and interpretations of the same situation It is amazing that any of us stay together, we women and men are such different creatures And yet, as the book so poignantly shows us, we ultimately work through and love and need one another So, too, are there differences in thinking between parents and teens Though adults are ulti [...]


  10. What a great read I m from the South so I automatically was drawn to the locale of the book Baker provides us with a great ride AND read I felt for the characters and somehow even felt like I knew them I was on the edge of my seat toward the end.


  11. Thank you NetGalley and Deeds Publishing for the moving novel The Timekeeper s Son, by Sara Baker This was an unexpected read for me Illustrating the power of support, acknowledgement and kindness to each other, and to family members The thirst of it within us, as well as the grave results with the lack of such things provided About passions and dreams for a bright future A story of an unfortunate circumstance and the ripple effects of it The struggle of a teenager boy and of middle aged persons [...]
