Would You Rather: Dual-Time Line or Flashbacks?

Do you rather reading dual time line like in … The Edge of Belonging by Amanda Cox?

The Edge of Belonging


When Ivy Rose returns to her hometown to oversee an estate sale, she soon discovers that her grandmother left behind more than trinkets and photo frames–she provided a path to the truth behind Ivy’s adoption. Shocked, Ivy seeks clues to her past, but a key piece to the mystery is missing.

Twenty-four years earlier, Harvey James finds an abandoned newborn who gives him a sense of human connection for the first time in his life. His desire to care for the baby runs up against the stark fact that he is homeless. When he becomes entwined with two people seeking to help him find his way, Harvey knows he must keep the baby a secret or risk losing the only person he’s ever loved.

In this dual-time story from debut novelist Amanda Cox, the truth–both the search for it and the desire to keep it from others–takes center stage as Ivy and Harvey grapple with love, loss, and letting go.

Or flashbacks like in … Destroy by Trica Mingerink?


Before the war, before the Blades, before the Leader…

There was a boy and a scullery maid and a secret shame.
One moonlit night of blood and knives destroyed their country and their lives forever.

The Leader failed to die, but will he also fail to lead?

  1. I’ve never read duel and I just know it would drive me crazy, so definitely flashbacks!


    1. I don’t know why but you seem like somebody who would, shows me what I know, lol.


  2. Oooh! This one is tough. I think I’ll go with dual timeline… though that can be confusing at times. (Though I’ve been confused more than once by flashbacks…)


    1. They can be confusing sometimes… Which is your favorite duel time line?!
