Publisher's Summary

From the author of Into the Forest, a moving novel about memory, Shakespeare's green worlds, and the power of reconciliation.

Until John Wilson met the warm, wise woman who became his fourth wife, the object of his most intense devotion had always been the work of William Shakespeare. From his feat of memorizing Romeo and Juliet and half a dozen other plays as a student to his evangelical zeal as a professor, John's faith in the Bard has shaped his life. But now his mental powers have been diminished by dementia, and his wife has reluctantly moved him to a residential care facility. Even there, as he struggles to understand what's going on around him, John's knowledge of the plays helps him make sense of his fractured world.

Yet when his only child, Miranda - with whom he has not spoken since a devastating misunderstanding a decade ago - comes to visit, John begins to question some of his deepest convictions. In his devotion to Shakespeare, did he lose his way? Did he wrong the child who wronged him? The story of an imperfect father and a wounded daughter's efforts to achieve some authentic connection even now, Still Time celebrates redemption and the gift of second chances. It is that rare novel that ends on a resounding note of hope, reminding us that there is always time to live fully and love deeply, so long as we are alive.

    "Great story, but. . ."

    I really hate 3rd person narration! I would have given it five stars if it would've been in first person. It Would have been a much better story with a different POV.

    "Dementia and Shakespeare"
    Any additional comments?

    I heard the author speak at a local bookstore. I was intrigued by the plot: an aging professor/ Shakespearean scholar with dementia still remembers every Shakespearean play he had studied and communicates via quotes from the plays. The plot is beautifully constructed and riveting, and the character development is deep and unforgettable. Highly recommended.

    "Moving and inspiring novel"

    The writing is beautiful. The story drew me in almost immediately since the characters and their relationships were both fascinating and touching. Jean Hegland is an incredibly gifted writer.
