What You Said to Me (by Olivia Newport) … dual timelines develops into a great story

I absolutely love the Tree of Life series by Olivia Newport.  The dual timeline is so well developed.  The author does a wonderful job of character development.  Jillian’s personality really shines through with her introversion and perfectionism.  While her father, Nolan, once again demonstrates his innate ability to evaluate a situation or the characters and gently guide them to a resolution.  He is the ultimate and perfect mediator.

The flow between the two timelines is well done.  You will quickly be drawn into each time period without an awkwardness of suddenly changing from past to present to past.

Thank you to NetGalley and Shiloh Run Press for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
