    1. I was so pleased to have the opportunity to be one of the first to read and review this book. I have a warm, fuzzy feeling inside, knowing that I was involved in voting for this front cover, so already felt an attachment towards this book before reading it.When Time Fails is set in South Africa during the Apartheid era and beyond, as things began to change. Although this wasn’t the main focus of the story, having this subject run alongside the main storyline, did make it quite emotive and real [...]

    2. I picked up this book from eb Rosebank because I was attracted to the cover. The woman looked very lonely and appeared to have a long way to go.Basically, the book is about Annamari's concealment of her baby's father at age 17 and how that decision impacted on her life and her family's for 35 years.Anni came from a boerefamilie who were were generational farmers. When her one time with Alan Silverman resulted in a pregnancy at age 17, she panicked and told her parents that the baby was Thys's, h [...]

    3. 4.5*I have read the first book in the Alan Silverman trilogy, which I gave a 4* rating. Marilyn Cohen de Villiers has now delivered the second part of the trilogy and I feel it is even better than the first. I would say that it is not necessary to have read A Beautiful Family in order to enjoy and understand this book as it has enough detail and context to be read as a standalone novel. When Time Fails follows the married life of Annamari, who aged 17 made a mistake with Alan Silverman that woul [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book. It's the second book in a series but can be read as a standalone-I haven't read the first one. The book is set in South Africa during the time of apartheid, and after. It focuses on Annamari and a mistake from her past that comes to haunt her. It follows how she has to live with the consequences of the mistake and how it affects her family. This is a beautifully written book that deals with some difficult and sensitive issues. I would definitely recommend people give [...]

    5. I received this book in return for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writing was a pleasure to read, the story was great. It's how marriage, life and its consequences revolve and evolve with one small lie. I had not read the first in the series, I shall do so now. It's fortunate that I understood the Afrikaans words so I dd not have to keep flipping back to the glossary.

    6. Thank you to the wonderful facebook bookclub group TBC for a copy of this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is the follow up to A Beautiful Family which is also excellent, although it can be read as a stand alone.It focuses on Annamari, who, due to a teenage affair with Alan Silverman, makes choices that affect her family for generations to come. This book is set in South Africa during the years of Apartheid and beyond. I love the way it incorpor [...]

    7. Lets start with what I really enjoyed about this book: lots of twists and turns, many of which I did not see coming, and imperfect characters - so wonderfully flawed and real that they walked off the page. I loved the background on farming in a small town, and found it to be very insightful and accurate regarding the relationship between farm owners and their workers, during and following Apartheid. Cohen De Villiers has great skill with revisiting the past and bringing it to life.My only negati [...]

    9. How a marriage that was based on a lie comes back to destroy a family. Location South Africa and really enjoyed the historical aspect of this novel and thank you Marilyn Cohen de Villiers for including a glossary. 3.8

    10. Need to have knowledge of and understand South Africa. Way too predictable. Had a chuckle with the afrikaansisms.
