A Time To Tell is the spellbinding story of Cara Hughes, and the dark secrets that plague her and her family. From the time she first falls in love, and that relationship’s tragic ending, to meeting her first love again as an elderly woman, we are transported as voyeurs through the heartbreak of Cara’s life.

Each throw of the weaver’s shuttle brings out another detail of the emotional hardships of Cara and her family’s lives, forcing them further from each other and closer to your own heart. Savva’s mastery of dialogue allows you to live inside this woven fabric of Cara’s world and feel the genuine sorrow of each character.
