But when she finds a manuscript on her mother’s computer that promises to reveal the true story, Tolan only hesitates for a moment before curiosity compels her to read on. She’s hoping for answers, but instead, she finds more mysteries tucked away in her mother’s past. Her mother appears to be associated with Bo, a feisty photojournalist who flies to Cuba in pursuit of a story and becomes embedded with Castro’s rebels, but Tolan can’t quite work out their connection. She’s more clear about the relationship between her mother and Michael, a man twelve years her senior. They bond over their shared outcast status, and their friendship quickly becomes intimate, but the relationship antagonizes the self-appointed moral watchdogs in their small town, who start to convert their threats into action. Tolan is pretty sure that Michael is her father. Her mother told her he died years ago, but the book suggests their story had a different ending. Almost overnight, everything Tolan thought she knew about herself and her family has changed. She wants answers, but to find them, she risks destroying her closest relationships.

    Wow. A Lifetime of Men is an exquisite book, one that jumped straight to the top of my favorites list. The novel weaves together the lives of three female protagonists, each of whom faces their own struggles and shows their own particular type of resilience. Bo has a feisty, adventurous spirit, and is trying to make it as a photojournalist at a time where women are expected to marry and keep house and understand that the working world is a man's world. Sarah is an orphan with so much grit and de Wow. A Lifetime of Men is an exquisite book, one that jumped straight to the top of my favorites list. The novel weaves together the lives of three female protagonists, each of whom faces their own struggles and shows their own particular type of resilience. Bo has a feisty, adventurous spirit, and is trying to make it as a photojournalist at a time where women are expected to marry and keep house and understand that the working world is a man's world. Sarah is an orphan with so much grit and determination. She's always had to fend for herself, and when she finally finds someone she connects with, the woman who is putting a roof over her head makes her choose between the two things she's never had: a stable home and a loving relationship. And then there's Tolan, who is perhaps the most courageous of the three, because even though she's uncovering a lot of secrets about her family, secrets that would devastate anyone, the most powerful demons she's battling are her own. In one sense, this book was easy to read. The writing is gorgeous, and I found myself so drawn in to each of the characters' worlds that I could not put the book down and the pages flew by. Each time I was with one of the women, I felt so totally engrossed in her story that I didn't want to leave her, yet within a few sentences of moving to one of the other storylines, I was all-in for that character. But in another, deeper sense, this book is not at all easy. Ciahnan Darrell does not shy away from the darker, grittier realities of life, and the novel raises a lot of tough questions. How much progress have we really made in the fight for women's rights? What does it mean to love someone? Does it matter if our understanding of a healthy, loving relationship doesn't match the definition of those around us? How much should we sacrifice for those we love? What role does violence play in life? In literature? The novel never feels didactic or preachy, and Darrell never sacrifices the story or the characters in order to pursue some philosophical train of thought, and yet the story pushes the reader to think deeply about her own preconceived notions about life, love, and relationships. Time and again, I came up against the edges of my own comfort zone, and then had to sit there and ask myself why? Was it possible that the boundaries by which I defined my comfort zone were arbitrary? Where had I gotten them from in the first place? Did I need to redraw them? I'm still not sure, and to me, that is the mark of an excellent novel, one that makes you think for days, weeks, months after you read it. Ultimately, A Lifetime of Men reads as a moving tribute to the strength of women, one that affirms both our right and our ability to cut our own path through the world. It is a beautiful, engrossing, powerful, disturbing, and captivating book, and it's one I'm sure I will return to again and again.

    A Lifetime of Men has a complex structure, more complicated than just a story within a story. The book moves frequently between a number of story lines and time periods, with the transitions not always being entirely obvious. Sometimes the reader learns the story as if reading it directly from the manuscript Tolan finds on her mother’s computer – as if reading it over Tolan’s shoulder, as it were. At other times, Tolan summarises or comments on the sections she’s just read, often discussing them A Lifetime of Men has a complex structure, more complicated than just a story within a story. The book moves frequently between a number of story lines and time periods, with the transitions not always being entirely obvious. Sometimes the reader learns the story as if reading it directly from the manuscript Tolan finds on her mother’s computer – as if reading it over Tolan’s shoulder, as it were. At other times, Tolan summarises or comments on the sections she’s just read, often discussing them with her friend, Tori. I thought Bo was a fascinating character. Although enthralled by her childhood hunting trips in the woods with her father, she also becomes aware of his violent nature.  Bo’s mother explains: “It’s our lot, Bo, what we’re meant to do, what we’re given.”. “What we are given?” queries Bo. “A lifetime of men” replies her sister, Ruby.  This early experience colours much of Bo’s attitude to relationships, including her on/off relationship with Parker, for whom I developed some sympathy. To me, he seemed only ever to have Bo’s best interests at heart, never demonstrating any intention to constrain her independence in the way she fears. I was disappointed when Bo and Parker disappeared largely from the story until the very end of the book. I was also sorry the ten years Bo spends in Cuba as a photojournalist is glossed over in a few sentences. What the reader does get is descriptions – thankfully brief – of some of the atrocities Bo witnesses whilst there which, I’ll be honest, I found quite disturbing to read. Tolan has a similar reaction; in fact, even more so. Unsure if her mother’s manuscript is fact or fiction, she’s distressed to think her mother could imagine such graphic scenes of violence. I found myself agreeing with Tolan when she asks herself, “Why would someone want to put those horrible images in people’s heads?”. It was interesting how, as the bond between Tolan and Tori develops, Tolan starts to wonder about parallels between their families’ potential reaction to the nature of their relationship and the way the community reacted to the relationship between Tolan’s mother Sarah and the much older Michael so many years before. Frustrated that the sections of her mother’s manuscript that will provide the answers she seeks are missing, Tolan sets out herself to gather the necessary pieces of the jigsaw, ultimately revealing not only the truth of her parentage but the ‘lifetime of men’ who have helped her along the way.

An awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very professionally written book. It was quite easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters & facts to keep track of. This could also make another great movie, or better yet a mini-TV series. Well, it started out with a bank, but kind of fizzled out. That said I will only rate it at 4/5 stars.

Beginning with Tolan stumbling upon a novel in process on her mother’s computer potentially detailing the story behind the elusive scar on her mother’s face. As Tolan navigates her mother’s story, she can’t help but to begin thinking of it more as a memoir than a work of fiction.

    In some books, you fall in love with one character. But in this book, you fall in love with multiple characters as the narrator elegantly weaves storylines together.

I enjoyed piecing together the correlations between the forbidden love stories of Tolan and Tori and Michael and Sarah. This is a story that spans generations, helping us to see the ciclical nature of our mistakes, and the enduring nature of love. The novel is a slow burn, with particularly beautiful passages of prose throughout. I thought the story progressed well, and it kept me guessing until the end, specifically in regards to the identity of Tolan's mother and whether or not she was truly hiding secrets or not. One of my favorite passages, and one I think nicely wraps up the feel of A Lifetime of Men, are the following passages near the middle of the novel: He could remember telling his students: the story requires conflict, conflict requires tension, and tension is created by the confluence of mutually exclusive intentions. How do you write any of these thousand of mundane and magical moments that comprise a human life? A Lifetime of Men makes a stellar attempt in both of these regards.

    A compelling story, set in coastal Maine, laced with subliminal violence and risky attractions. Told mostly in dialog, it is the story of characters who are unable or unwilling to verbalize their conflicts and whose secrets are revealed in the silences between their encounters.

    A wonderfully written novel that accurately depicts strong characters and really brings to life a strong female lead.

There's a number of points where a number of years are jumped, and I literally have to piece together based on what's happening in the world what year it is. It also jumps past to present, which is usually pretty obvious, but still, when you're jumping a lot, it's confusing. There seemed to be a lot of events that happened that weren't relevant to anything, except generally being someone's life story. Opposed to that, there are a LOT of one or two sentence time skips, where it says "ah yes, this happened!" And then it's not addressed again. So we jump between two extremes. The blurb makes it seem like the novel has a lot to do with this Michael character, either being her lover or father, I dunno, but by the 50% mark, he's been mentioned twice, very briefly. The writing for the most part is fine. The idea is good. I think it either 1. Should have been a series, or 2. Should have been more elaborate and/or focused on the important parts of the story, cause the only plot point that I got by 50% of the way through was "Ah yes, my mom isn't who I thought she was. Better keep reading her novel". I hope people who get through it enjoy it, I just wanted to share experience with it.

    An impressive debut novel with a complex structure and multiple points of view, A Lifetime of Men explores the family dramas and aspirations of three women who strive to escape the limitations posed by men—and their violence, both physical and psychological. Richly told in finely-tuned prose, suspenseful and artfully paced, with compelling characters we can care about, this novel announces an important literary talent to watch out for.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. What an amazing read! A book within a book, I’d say. It was nice to see how Tolan made the connection and started digging into her mom’s past. The story of Bo and Parker was such sweet heartbreak. I’m hoping there is another book to follow Tolan and Tori’s future together, if there is a future together. Must read!! Highly recommend!!
