LoveReading View on The Time is Now

'Reading Pauline McLynn's ambitious new novel is like watching the pieces of a puzzle slot together with a series of satisfying clicks. The Time is Now is a fascinating shift for McLynn, who has developed a lot as a writer since her amiable debut... This compelling, intelligent and moving novel bodes well for the future' Irish Times

Sarah Broadhurst

The Time is Now Synopsis

Take a year in Soho and a house like no other...From a woman grieving on New Year's Day to a Victorian maid's passion for poetry, from a wartime widower picking up the pieces of his life to a young musician with a dream, one magical house has witnessed the drama of people's lives for generations. Meet the unforgettable residents of Claxton Court and discover the remarkable ties that bind them together. 'The past, present and future all bleed into one another like watercolours on a canvas...time becomes irrelevant. The Time is Now is not Mrs Doyle...it is something very different from what has gone before, but it hints at a bright new direction for McLynn, the writer' Irish Independent
