“It Is Time, Lord is beautifully written, page on page; written, composed, balanced from word to word.”—New Statesman
James Christopher—publisher, husband, and father of two—is headed for trouble. Once a North Carolina farm boy who grew up hoeing corn, fighting with his cousin, and listening to his grandmother read from the Bible, James resigns from his job for no apparent reason, drinks too much, fails in his attempt to take up writing, and, following the advice of a skirt-chasing rogue, has an affair with a woman he dislikes.
Daring to recall the events of his childhood, especially the fire that destroyed his grandparents’ home, James, obsessed with his past and its deceptions, struggles to truly understand his history and its influence on the man he has become.
