The Trick to Time

Mona is a dollmaker. She crafts beautiful, handmade wooden dolls in her workshop in a sleepy seaside town. Every doll is special. Every doll has a name. And every doll has a hidden meaning, from a past Mona has never accepted.Each new doll takes Mona back to a different time entirely - back to Birmingham, in 1972. Back to the thrill of being a young Irish girl in a big city, with a new job and a room of her own in a busy boarding house. Back to her first night out in town, where she meets William, a gentle Irish boy with an easy smile and an open face. Back to their whirlwind marriage, and unexpected pregnancy. And finally, to the tragedy that tore them apart....

The Trick to Time Reviews

  • Rebecca

    3.5 stars. It's difficult to say what this book is even about because of spoilers but the main theme is quite heavy and a subject I don't think I've ever seen discussed in a book before. The synopsis of the book really doesn't tell you much and it didn't make me interested in reading this book- but I'm trying to read the majority of the women's prize for fiction longlist and this was on there, and I did enjoy her previous book "My Name is Leon" so I gave it a go and was pleasantly surprised.

    I read this book due to its longlisting for the 2018 Women’s Prize.

    The book is written from the third party viewpoint of Mona, starting just before her sixtieth birthday in an English seaside town where she runs a toy shop and an internet business selling hand-made dolls, crafter by a local carpenter (a loner with whom she has an ambiguous relationship) and then painted by her and beautifully dressed in clothes she makes from second hand clothes.

    At the book’s start she spots an elderly and seem

    Thank you to the publishers for providing an ARC of this book through NetGalley.

    DNF at 25%.

    I loved the setting of this book. How could I not? It’s where I’m from. I loved the familiarity with the area and it really felt like the author knew the area and understood the socio-cultural style of the area. I also loved the Irish aspect of the character. It brought another dimension to the character.

    But the book itself was just pretty meh. It was slow, it was a bit boring and I couldn’t see where it

    I was lucky enough to be given this book to read by Net Galley. It has taken me days to write this review and I am not sure I can do the book justice. A beautiful story that deals with a subject people don’t talk about, the life altering grief that comes with the loss of a baby and the suffering of a still birth.

    This is Mona’s story but every single character in this book is beautifully drawn and has depth, each one adds a layer to the book that draws you in and creates her well rounded life, t

  • Theresa Smith Writes

    Irish fiction often seems to have a way of getting deep under my skin, right down into my bones where I end up feeling the story in a way that makes it impossible to truly ever let go of. The Trick to Time is such a gem of a novel, so incredibly moving and uniquely insightful.

    Mona is sixty, lives in a nice apartment with a view, is financially secure, has a successful small business creating unique collectable dolls, and enjoys the company of a group of friends and acquaintances on a regular bas

  • Gail Atkins

    A moving and well written book about 60 year old Mona, who hasn't had an easy life. Along the way she has suffered a lot of heartache and loss.

    A long with a local carpenter they create dolls made out of wood: Mona sells them online and in her shop.

    But their real speciality are making dolls that help families who've lost a child through miscarriages or those born a sleep. The dolls weigh the same as the lost child. Whilst holding the doll and with a gentle conversation, Mona is able to support th

    I was already a big fan of Kit's as My Name is Leon was my book of 2017 so I had high hopes for The Trick To Time and they were absolutely fulfilled. Mona and William begin a life together full of hope and love but after a cataclysmic tragedy, the story is in how Kit reveals their individual histories, burdens and motivations.

    Kit's writing is lyrical and rich, and like My Name is Leon, the book has incredible emotional punch and characters that linger for days in your mind. Her descriptions of
