Waiting for Richard by Carol Ann Kauffman

Waiting for Richard
by Carol Ann Kauffman

Retired insurance office manager Skye McKenna launches a new career as a children's author. On a book tour in Australia, she finds adventure and romance with a reclusive elephant-loving veterinarian. 

This is rather long, short story in the TIME AFTER TIME series, which follows a pair of quintessential lovers, Richard and Nicole, through their lives together, at different times, in different places, with different names and faces. This follows the alternate theory that the relationships we forge in this lifetime, both good and bad, are continued in the future and rooted in the past. Those people who have had a profound effect on us in this life will find us in the future.

Waiting for Richard, by Carol Ann Kaufman, is a short novella added to the Time After Time series. Reading this novella first has made me want to read every one of the books in the series.

Skye is happily retired and working on a series of children's books. She is happy, but the one thing that bothers her is this image she has in her mind of the man of her dreams. Considering herself too old to even consider looking for him, she keeps herself absorbed in her children's books. An unexpected trip to Australia and a meeting with an elephant expert makes her realize that you never know who's going to enter your life and grab your love.

There is also many other twists and turns going on in these 65 pages including a shooting, a runaway brother and other craziness that makes this novella a must read. Take it as an entry into the world of all the Time after Time series, because once you read this you're going to want to read all of them.

  1. I loved this story! It was sweet and touching and funny, and a very brave book, I thought. It's not easy to write a believable, and truly romantic love story about people over sixty, and Kauffman really pulls it off. I'm eager to read more of her Time After Time series
