Mobi Time After Time

Time After TimeBelowAs thousands of visitors pass under the famous celestial blue ceiling each day Joe and Nora create a life unlike any they could have imagined With infinite love in a finite space they take full advantage of the “Terminal City” within a city dining at the Oyster Bar visiting the Whispering Gallery and making a home at the Bilt Hotel But when the construction of another landmark threatens their future Nora and Joe are forced to test the limits of freedom and loveDelving into Grand Central Terminal’s rich past Lisa Grunwald crafts a masterful historical novel about a love affair that defies age class place and even time Joe and Nora meet and fall in insta love Their happily ever after is kept at bay by the fact that Joe is mortal and Nora is a ghost who can only live in Grand Central Terminal This is the premise as well as the entire plot of this 400 page book Maybe the premise sounded good but wasn't strong enough to carry a well developed storyline or maybe it was poorly executed but I found the story and its characters boring and lackluster I'm honestly surprised by the number of 4 and 5 star ratings I'm seeing
