The time travel plotting unfortunately has a very big flaw in its execution which doesn't add up. You may or may not pick up on it but if you do, it will grate you if you think too much about it.
Ron Sexsmith - All In Good Time Lyrics
So you just have to accept the flaw and go with the flow. It's a very engaging sequel but doesn't quite have the impact or elegant structure of the first book. The narrative once again switches between first and third perspectives which does keep the narrative quite refreshing but this time around I found the author to be too intrusive particularly towards the end. Also I felt there was a missed opportunity to link characters between s and the s given that the author character could easily find out more about their family tree.
Anyway, that's probably nitpicking, it's still a charming adventure and lovely wrap up for the characters we got know in the first standalone novel. I give this a 3.

But I couldn't help just a quick glance at the first chapter. And I'm not kidding you, the first sentence reeled me in and wouldn't let go. I kept reading one sentence and thinking, "Okay, that's it, I can't read this book yet, I have to wait," and then I'd read another sentence and think the same thing, and before I knew it, I'd read the whole book! The characters in this book are just wonderful. And I love how the author made himself a character. It was a clever plot device and it's partly what drew me in so quickly. Of course, for me, any book that takes me back to the late s is a winner, and this one so skillfully addressed the confusion and sometimes hilarity that might ensue from a "modern" this book was written in the s, I think 20th century man encountering Victorian life, with his somewhat more knowledgeable daughter she'd already traveled back in time several times giving him advice and sometimes just shaking her head in despair.
One of the best things I can say about this book is that once Time at the Top comes in at the library and I read it, I will immediately re-read All in Good Time , just to savor it again.

I love time travel stories. This book follows Time at the Top which I've been unable to find in the library system. Never mind, the reader is given p I've no idea what brought this to my attention at the beginning of which is when I added it to my to-read list , but I've finally read it and enjoyed it thoroughly. Never mind, the reader is given plenty to tell what happened so there are no instances of wondering about the background.
We pick up with Susan, who lives in New York with her father, and who was given 3 trips in a time-travelling elevator. She used 2 of them in the first book, but now has a plan to return with her father because she is quite sure that her father will fall in love with the mother of her two friends Robert and Victoria, and therefore save Mrs Walker from penury and loneliness. Well, as the bard put it - the course of true love never did run smooth - so the reader is treated to a great little adventure.
This is a fun book. Sep 14, Nancy rated it really liked it Shelves: children-s , kids-time-travel. Good to have a better ending to Time at the Top. Sep 06, Desertisland added it.www.hiphopenation.com/mu-plugins/rains/which-dating-website-is-the.php

All in good time Oh, all in good time It said all in good time The bad times will be gone. All in good time Oh, all in good time It seemed all in good time The bad times will be gone. We rise and fall We try and fail And people may judge us But angels will know us darling All in good time. It all seems so obvious now When I look back over my life There's a need for sorrow and doubt For darkness and for light It's how it must be.
