Keith Nolan falls in love with a remarkable young woman from the past, talking to him on a home video she recorded in 1989. To keep their conversation going, he must find more of her tapes—while forces work against them both, and time is running out.
A Different Time shows me that there is always light in the dark.
Keith Nolan and Lindsey Hale are both interesting and lovely characters. They both had no plans for their future. So, when time interconnected the two of them, they found themselves engaged on talking with one another using the home video Lindsey had recorded in 1989. But, with every happy day, there will always be a sad day. Keith needs to find more of those home videos if he wants to keep on talking with Lindsey.
This is the second time that I encountered a plot like this. The previous one that I had seen, which is something like this was from a Filipino movie wherein they are also both from the past and future. *If you are interested in watching it, the title of the film is Moments of Love* They are similar in the aspect of having two people connected from a different timeline, but the execution is really different in this book, and I liked it. The story is only short, so reading this won’t take much of your time. But, during that time, you’ll get immersed in the story and the journey that the characters will have.
This book gives me a dreamy vibe where you will hope something magical like this would happen to you. But despite it, I am not as surprised as to what will happen in the story because I already watched a movie with a similar concept but only with different execution. The writing lacked something which I keep on looking for, but I don’t know what it is. Is it the writing style? Is it the story itself? The characters’ development? The scenes? But, no matter what it is, the story is still good.
Also. I associate myself with Lindsey when it comes to guys because we have the same preferences or an ideal guy. I want to meet someone who likes to read and maybe, someone who can understand me as a person.
Overall, A Different Time shows that love has no boundaries even if it is the time that separates the two lovers. I am recommending this to everyone who likes to read a classic and timeless romantic story of two star-crossed lovers from a different timeline.
