What happens when you live longer than you wanted to?

Parvin Blackwater wanted to die, but now she’s being called to be a leader. The only problem is, no one wants to follow.

The Council uses Jude’s Clock-matching invention to force “new-and-improved” Clocks on the public. Those who can’t afford one are packed into boxcars like cattle and used for the Council’s purposes.

Parvin and Hawke find themselves on a cargo ship of Radicals headed out to sea. What will the Council do to them? And why are people suddenly dying before their Clocks have zeroed-out?



Reviews:Ralene Burke on Goodreads wrote:

While A Time to Die left me breathless with jaw-dropping twists and great characters, I think I found A Time to Speak more inspiring. Once again, Nadine spins a tale that continues to surprise and engage, but I found that I related to Parvin a lot more in this book, like I was learning to believe in her as she was learning to believe in herself--or rather in God's plan for her. And, of course, it had to stop in a place leaving me itching to read the 3rd book. Aaaah!

About the Author

Nadine Brandes learned to write her alphabet with a fountain pen. In Kindergarten. Cool, right? She dealt with ink splotches before even knowing how to spell. She never decided to become a writer. Her brain simply classified it as a necessity to life -- like bathing, eating, and sleeping.

Nadine is an adventurer, fusing authentic faith with bold imagination. She writes stories about brave living, finding purpose, and other worlds soaked in imagination. When she's not taste-testing a new chai or editing fantasy novels, Nadine is out traveling, finding new music, and pursuing active life.
