All the Time in the World by Caroline Angell (A Book Review)

This debut novel hits you right in the heart. On the very first page, a young mother dies tragically.


All the Time in the World is a recent release from Caroline Angell. The author brings you into the world of a musically talented New York graduate named Charlotte as she cares for two young boys. She’s a nanny, babysitter, and all-around kid whisperer for Gretchen and Scotty McLean, a couple on the Upper East Side. When Gretchen passes away suddenly, Charlotte finds herself putting her already misplaced aspirations on hold to keep a broken family together.  

First-time author Angell breathes life into this work with every scene because some of it mirrors her own life experiences as a nanny. She takes you through Charlotte’s journey of self-doubt after a career betrayal through her resilience as a champion for those who need her most. Along the way, she encounters Patrick, Scotty’s brother who keeps her on her toes. Refreshing, whimsical, but filled with depth.
