Stealing Time by Nancy Pennick


This is the third book in the Waiting for Dusk trilogy.  Kate and Drew are back and facing the problems of a couple torn between two time periods.  Kate and Drew’s love is stronger than ever.  They are trying to live as normal a life as possible but things don’t go smoothly for the pair. 
Tyson is back and he has taken Drew’s copy of the book and makes an appearance at the Canyon that the couple has to deal with while not letting on to Tyson that he is not just dreaming.
Once Ty is dealt with, the couple finds more trouble and it is much closer to home.  While on their New York visit in the past with Drew’s family, Kate makes a startling discovery and the whole visit takes on a sinister turn.
All is not completely bad though as Kate returns to present day New York and makes a discovery that changes her life and Drew’s.  A sort of miracle takes place for Drew that helps him deal with the loss of his family.
Dealing with life in two different eras has more difficulties than the couple can imagine and they spend a lot of time trying to deal with the outcomes of some of their decisions in the past which could have terrible effects on the present.

Kate is starting to become a young woman who is independent and smart and doesn’t need anyone to take care of her. She has lost her naïve ways and is a woman ready to take action.  But she wisely realizes that she is stronger with her family and friends to support her.
Drew is still the caring boyfriend but he is putting the pressure on Kate to get married in the present as they have done in 1927.  He is a product of his era and wants to do the right thing.  His prolonged visit to his family with Kate shows us a side of Drew that I was surprised to see but it made him even more interesting.
Tyson is his same old self, unable to accept the fact that Kate loves Drew and not him.  When he steals Drew’s book, it puts the whole time travel gang in a tailspin.
Lindsey and Anna, Kate’s best friends, are still there and supportive as always.  Anna receives a gift that no one expects and Lindsey and her family suffer a great tragedy.
I don’t want to give away too many details of this book.  Just let me say, it is the best of the trilogy and I don’t want the story of Kate and Drew to end.  I want to hear more about this young couple.
If you have read the other books, this is not to be missed.  If you haven’t you should run out and get them and treat yourself to a wonderful story.

Rated PG for mild sexual content.
