    A brilliant debut novel!

    Over twenty years ago Ashton made a choice to defy destiny and her predetermined fate; altering the fabric of time. Since then, Ashton has been running from destiny and fate while desperately trying to prevent a terrorist attack that will affect thousands of lives and an entire country. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. One Second of Loneliness by Timothy French is an interesting and philosophical read. French demonstrates how one person's decisions can affect many people; even people outside of that one person's social/family circle. Even though I do not agree with the concepts of fate and destiny, I appreciated how French was able to make these concepts seem like tangible characters in the story without making the story seem unrealistic. Finally, I enjoyed the imagery in French's writing; it helped me to connect with the characters on an emotional level and made it easy for me to imagine the different settings in the book. I was impressed with the poetic prose that is sprinkled throughout the book; however, I grew impatient when I was halfway through the book and had yet to find how more than two of the characters were connected to each other. While much of this is revealed near the end, I was frustrated by this because I was aware that the connections existed, but I did not know why or how the connections existed. This could be a quirk on my part, and should not discourage readers who enjoy reading books that make them think about their lives and what their lives mean. Despite my frustration, I found One Second of Loneliness by Timothy French beautifully insightful and philosophical; it is one of those books that makes you think about its implications well after you put it down. I will re-read this book to catch any nuances that I may have missed during the first reading, and look forward to seeing more from Timothy French.
