Sometimes we think we have all the time in the world. We believe we have forever, but then something happens to show us that we don't. Sooner or later we are brought face-to-face with our own mortality and we realise that life should be about living for the moment and making the most of the precious time we do have. Borrowed Time is a story of joy and sadness, an old-fashioned romance with an undercurrent of tragedy. Roberta meets the man or her dreams, but she knows she hasn’t long to live. She feels it would be unfair to get involved, but she finds herself falling in love.
