Sharp, convincing.”―The New York Times Book Review

An unforgettable debut about a young woman's choice between the future she's always imagined and the people she's come to love.

Charlotte, a gifted and superbly trained young musician, has been blindsided by a shocking betrayal in her promising career when she takes a babysitting job with the McLeans, a glamorous Upper East Side Manhattan family. At first, the nanny gig is just a way of tiding herself over until she has licked her wounds and figured out her next move as a composer in New York. But, as it turns out, Charlotte is naturally good with children and becomes as deeply fond of the two little boys as they are of her. When an unthinkable tragedy leaves the McLeans bereft, Charlotte is not the only one who realizes that she's the key to holding little George and Matty's world together. Suddenly, in addition to life's usual puzzles, such as sorting out which suitor is her best match, she finds herself with an impossible choice between her life-long dreams and the torn-apart family she's come to love. By turns hilarious, sexy, and wise, Caroline Angell's remarkable and generous debut is the story of a young woman's discovery of the things that matter most.

About the Author:

Caroline Angell grew up in Endwell, NY, the daughter of an electrical engineer and a public school music teacher. She has a B. A. in musical theater from American University and currently lives and works in Manhattan. As a playwright and director, she has had her work performed at regional theaters in New York City and in the Washington, D.C., area. All the Time in the World is her first novel.

Review:

“Angell portrays the family’s bereavement in sharp, convincing, and acutely sad prose, capturing the abstract . . . . the messy, surreal nature of life after such profound loss.”―The New York Times Book Review

“Refreshing . . . dissects the choices women are so often forced to consider―and the idea that it may, in fact, be impossible to have it all, so you have to decide what, deep down, you want instead.”―Refinery29

Angell's remarkable debut is a complex story about love, family, grief, the destiny that is handed to us, and the destiny that we choose. . . . Angell's canny insight into relationships and the demons her characters must face to find satisfaction in their work and personal lives makes this the kind of book readers won’t want to see end.”―Publishers Weekly

“A rewarding, emotionally satisfying read.”Kirkus Reviews

“Truly mesmerizing . . . I could not stop reading until the end.”―The Review Broads

“An extraordinary book. Caroline Angell is wise beyond her years in rendering the heartache of grief, and all the different kinds of love we are capable of feeling. I was haunted by All the Time in the World long after finishing the last page. It reads like the work of a mature writer at the height of her powers, not a debut novel. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Angell will write next.”―Alice LaPlante, New York Times bestselling author of Turn of Mind

“In All the Time in the World, Caroline Angell explores the different ways in which people find their way through grief, and she does it bravely and masterfully. A heart wrenching yet life affirming novel. What a debut!”Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle

“There’s wit, wisdom, and insight on every page of Caroline Angell’s great debut novel. But, more important than any of that are the emotional truths she reveals at every turn.”―Matthew Norman, author of Domestic Violets and We’re All Damaged

“Caroline Angell deftly handles the complexities of love, grief, hope, humor and family. All the Time in the World is funny, beautifully textured and deeply moving. An absolute joy to read.”Allie Larkin, author of Stay and Why Can't I Be You?
