Nancy Cramer Reviews "Never Too Late" by B. Lynn Goodwin

Thank you to WOW! Women on Writing for including us in the book blog tour for B. Lynn Goodwin's Never Too Late

Nancy's Review:

It’s never too late to read a book that holds your interest and keeps you reading into the night, until too tired, just to see what the character is going to get herself into next.
Never Too Late by B. Lynn Goodwin is that exact book!

Being over 60 is not a reason to be put on “hold.” Goodwin proves that as she has her character in,
Never Too Late, discover there is life after being
single your entire life. Hard to change and accept
each step, she trudges on, telling herself she deserves
more in her life, even at this “age.”

I love that the characters were diverse in beliefs, yet able
to find common ground to explore and create lives that suited both of them. I also loved that there was compromise on both sides with non-judgemental

Reading Never Too Late you get the sense that there is “hope” out there for everyone! If you are in the mindset of it’s too late for me, no matter what age you are, I definitely
recommend this book! It’s one that should be on the top of your list of what to read next!

Official Book Summary:

About Today's Reviewer: 

Since I was young I could travel, hide and grow “in” my book world. When young I read series: Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, etc. From that young world I grew into books that were a bit different. I usually bypass the mainstream authors. I find the quirky books, the ones that are a bit of fantasy with reality thrown in. If it starts out holding my
interest I have been known to stay up late into the night to find out what happens next!

I’m retired from the greatest career I could have ever stumbled upon. I taught 31 years, 26 in Kingergarten - a highlight of my life! Want quirkiness, fun, drama and great rewards - try being with 5 to 8 year olds everyday for 31 years! It was a hoot everyday and the kiddos wrote more books than I can remember. Books for every unit we
covered In K through 3rd. grade! Art work was an added bonus for many of the children while writing and “publishing” their books.

I like to think I passed my love of reading onto my own 2 children
as well. Their interests are varied and different stages of life have
brought different genres to the forefront. All 3 of us devoured the
Harry Potter series! A great way to connect with your children,
discussing the excitement of books.

Being an avid traveler, through my teaching years and in retirement,
I have also gravitated to books about the areas I’ve visited or lived in.
I walked a short distance on the Appalachian Trail at one point in my life.
That set me off researching and reading all the books I could find about
people that have walked the multitude of trails in the world. Their stories
are amazing!

I will continue to curl up with a book, be it in the dead of winter in
front of the fire or in a hammock by the lake with fish jumping in
the background. With a book in your hands, the world is yours!
