Love in Another Time
Review by Love Reading
A heartfelt, enjoyable relationship story that spans generations.
‘Love in Another Time’ by Lexa Dudley covers three different time periods and three different relationships as they develop. Taking us from England’s boarding schools and countrysides to the idyllic Cagliari, Sardinia. This is a lovely story and just the kind of read I was looking for.
Ellie Montford becomes a part of her best friend’s family during the holidays from their boarding school and develops a strong bond with her friend’s brother, Simon. Later in life Ellie finds herself in Cagliari and is whisked up in a passionate romance with young professor Gino. Decades later, we see Ellie’s granddaughter Sara return to Cagliari with no knowledge of her previous family connections to the place. All the while we see friendships formed and all the ups and downs of love played out. The narrative sweeps you along through winter on the farm and through sunny streets and Sardinian harbours. I grew connected to the characters, hoping that they found happiness as the story went on. Overall I found ‘Love in Another Time’ an enjoyable feel-good story.
