Never Enough Time (Hard Cover) by Kimberly McMillan
When thirty-year-old Marni once again has to say goodbye to someone very important in her life, the loss hits close to home as she remembers the summer she was fourteen and lost her mom … the summer her life became unrecognizable.
Shortly after her mother’s passing, Marni learns the truth about her father and is sent to Waco, Texas to live with him and his “perfect” family. There, she must face a world that blatantly rejected her mom, without losing faith in the one person she trusted.
Old wounds resurface for Lauren—Marni’s new stepmother—as she tries to navigate these new waters. Her self-worth and confidence are shaken by her husband’s betrayal, and she wonders if she can truly love and understand a child who isn’t hers.
Told from multiple perspectives, Never Enough Time is an emotional coming-of-age story that demonstrates the power of familial relationships despite complicated differences.
