The dynamic of her being torn between her husband and her father is one that I deeply felt and gives depth to an already well-written love story.

I read the whole book in one night. This is a new series for me by Kathryn Shay. What I liked most about A Time to Give is how the author brought Emily and Ben together in the beginning. From the start, I liked Emily and felt bad for how her ex had treated her. And there's her controlling, back-stabbing father. I have loved all the other books by her that I have read so decided to give this series a try. I am so glad that I did. It is excellent, although you do need tissues while you read it. I can’t wait to read the other books in this series. Emily Erickson volunteered at Cassidy Place, a kitchen for the poor. She did a little of everything, except cook.

A Time to Kill is a 1989 legal thriller by John Grisham. It was Grisham's first novel. The novel was rejected by many publishers before Wynwood Press eventually gave it a modest 5,000-copy printing. When Doubleday published The Firm, Wynwood released a trade paperback of A Time to Kill, which became a bestseller. Dell published the mass market paperback months after the success of The Firm, bringing Grisham to widespread popularity among readers.

The description of this book caught my interest right away, but the complexity of the characters' backgrounds made for an even better story than I thought it would. I read the whole book in one night.

What I liked most about A Time to Give is how the author brought Emily and Ben together in the beginning. From the start, I liked Emily and felt bad for how her ex had treated her. And there's her controlling, back-stabbing father. He's good to her, but doesn't care who he hurts for the sake of his business. I immediately connected with Ben, who carried a grudge against the man who stole his business and ruined his life. Emily and Ben meet in a soup kitchen where they volunteer - how great is that? Two people with hidden identities who truly understand the joy of helping those less fortunate.

When Ben finds out Emily's father is the man he's bent on destroying, he runs from her arms. I enjoyed the duel between her love and his hatred. Lines are drawn, but no one ever reaches the point of no return. On top of it all, a surprise pregnancy. The characters seemed to carry a realistic suspicion of each other, but also a heart-wrenching build-up of love that neither can deny. There's also plenty of surprises that keep the story moving.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys watching two people find love. Not the fairy-tale kind, but the kind with real people who care deeply for each other, have sensible reactions for the situation, and don't give up until they're happy. It's inspirational when a book can show how people change in a way that makes me smile and feel glad I took the time to read through every page.

Emily Erickson volunteered at Cassidy Place, a kitchen for the poor. She did a little of everything, except cook. She had volunteered here because she needed to help those who were in need. During the day, she worked for her Father, Lammon McKenzie and tried her best to keep him under control when it came to the people who worked in the businesses he bought and sold. He wasn’t concerned with the little people; but she was and so she worked hard at keeping him in check. She had given up on her dream to have a child and to have a dance studio. Her divorce was a result of the two of them not being able to have a child together and her Father wasn’t behind her dance studio. Her volunteering here was one thing she did for herself. She had her favorites here and heading the list was Ben. She didn’t know his last name or really anything about him. When they did talk, he always turned the conversation away from himself. Emily still persisted.
Ben Cassidy didn’t want anyone to know that Cassidy Place was named after his father nor that he had financed it. Ben had lost his company and his pride to Lammon McKenzie when McKenzie took over his company. Ben had turned to alcohol but luckily stopped drinking before he had gone too far. Now he wants to get his company back and get revenge on McKenzie. He didn’t have time for a romance with Emily although he wanted one.
When Emily and Ben get together, it is spoiled by his discovering the next morning that she is Lammon McKenzie’s daughter. He gets very angry and leaves Emily. Little does he know that he left a little of himself behind. What will happen now?
I really enjoyed this book! I do wish that it had more flow, but overall, I really enjoyed it. Emily is trying to make her father be an honest man, while making up for his terrible decisions. She works at a soup kitchen where she is curious about one of the visitors. Ben wants to see the soup kitchen succeed after starting it and then falling back on a hard time. Ben over time slowly falls in love with Emily. He tries to resist and lets Emily know she needs to stay away. After not being able to fight it anymore, he gives in to his wanting. 6 months later, he trying to take her father down and finds out Emily is pregnant. He gives her the cold shoulder and not being able to trust her. Eventually Ben gets everything he wants, but has not thought about what Emily wants. He gives her a little piece of happiness and then can't move past it. Emily decides this is not what she wants and lets Ben think about what he really wants and needs. Ben goes after what he needs and gives even more back to Emily and even her dad, not matter how much he despises the man. The ending of the book is cute and I wish we got to see it a couple more years down the line. I'm curious as to where the main characters are and how the parents are doing. Even though this story didn't have the best flow, I enjoyed reading the story and seeing how Emily and Ben turned out.
This book kept me on the edge of my seat, because you never knew what happen next. From the start, I liked Emily and felt bad for how her ex had treated her. And there's her controlling, back-stabbing father who I loathed through 3/4 of the story. That man was ruthless and didn't care who he hurt to get what he wanted, even his own daughter. I immediately connected with Ben, although I could feel something brewing down deep within him. I loved the way he and Emily met, and their first encounter together as a couple was explosive, to say the least. But then when he found out who she really was, he acted just like her father. I know he had his reasons, but what's wrong with him not giving her at least a small benefit of doubt, before making up some wild accusations and acting like a total buffoon? His actions towards the end of the story won me over in the end. It took a strong man to bite the bullet and do what he did to make sure the whole family finally found peace and harony, and I applaud that whole-heartedly.

Their journey wasn't an easy road to hoe, but they tried very hard to overcome all of the obsticles standing in the way of finding their HEA, but they did it! This book was a wonderful journey toward a path of forgiveness, and most of all....love and trust for one another..
