The Story of Time for Valentine’s Day? Or for any other day?

Absolutely! Because it’s not just for kids.


The Story of Time is a heartwarming read about how a little girl meets Mr Time and what lessons he teaches her on patience, love, joy, sorrow and the importance of moments in our lives. It’s a very relevant topic, especially in such uncertain times. It’s a band-aid for the soul and a different approach to understanding time. The magical part about my book is that adults will be able to enjoy it too. It will have a different meaning based on which period of life you choose to read it. It's a fascinating read for kids, with detailed illustrations and an emotional adventure for young adults, parents and grandparents alike. Order your copy, add a personal note for me to include and until 14th February, the gift wrap option will be be free of charge. Spread some love this year, with a book that makes a difference.


Here’s what my readers say about it:
