A Time For Living (Polwenna Bay 2) by Ruth Saberton - Five *


Is there ever a right time for love? 

Feisty horsewoman, Morwenna Tremaine, has always known what she wants from life and success as a three day event rider is all she’s ever dreamed of. Mo has neither the time nor the inclination for love. Even if she did it wouldn’t be with a man who stands for everything she despises… 

Beneath a tough and determined exterior, businessman Ashley Carstairs harbours a dark secret that threatens to destroy everything he holds dear. Although aware that he is heading for trouble, he finds himself increasingly drawn to the one woman he knows he should stay away from – for both their sakes. 

As the autumn nights draw in and the trickling sands of time gather speed, emotions run higher than the tides and Mo finds herself unable to step away. What is Ashley hiding? Is there more to him that meets the eye? And will his secret destroy everything she now holds dear? 


It's some time since I read the first book in this series, but it didn't matter at all. This was another warm and compelling story from Polwenna Bay featuring the Tremaine family.

Morwenna (Mo) has a hate/hate relationship with Ashley Carstairs and this book is the story of their relationship. It is sensitively written and deals with a huge problem that Ashley has. He courts Mo and she falls heavily for him, as does he for her. Their humour together is wonderful and I laughed and cried with them. I can't imagine how I would have reacted had I ever been in Mo's situation but I felt Ruth got it exactly right.

The sub plot of Jules and Danny was excellent and I look forward to reading about that in the next book. Can't wait!
