Publisher's Summary

Eleanor Murray will always remember her childhood on Edisto Island, where her late father, a local shrimper, shared her passion for music. Now her memories of him are all that tempers the guilt she feels over the accident that put her sister in a wheelchair and the feelings she harbors for her sister's husband.

To help support her sister, Eleanor works at a Charleston investment firm during the day, but she escapes into her music, playing piano at a neighborhood bar. Until the night her enigmatic boss walks in and offers her a part-time job caring for his elderly aunt, Helena, back on Edisto. For Eleanor, it's a chance to revisit the place where she was her happiest and to share her love of music with grieving Helena, whose sister recently died under mysterious circumstances.

An island lush with sweetgrass and salt marshes, Edisto has been a peaceful refuge for Helena, who escaped with her sister from war-torn Hungary in 1944. The sisters were well-known on the island, where they volunteered in their church and community. But now Eleanor will finally learn the truth about their past: secrets that will help heal her relationship with her own sister and set Eleanor free....

    "Karen White Never Dissapoints!"

    I am so happy I rediscovered this author! This was a beautifully narrated, richly textured and moving story! I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, plot, with suspense and a nice little touch of romance!
    This was a book I never wanted to end!

    "Beautiful, Touching Story !"

    I had heard two other of Karen White's books, On Folly Beach and The Beach Trees, and really enjoyed them. I thought, this is an author from whom I would really like to hear more.
    I LOVED The Time Between. It was so unpredictable and a beautiful story of sisterly relationship and healing. I can't recommend it enough !

    "Excellent book"
    If you could sum up The Time Between in three words, what would they be?

    This book has been lesson in life about relationships in sisters,in one self and other. It is also about love hope and about what past secrets can do in your life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Time Between?

    When Helana revels hers past to Elenor. The forgiveness that there is in the book


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    great character and narration in the book felt that you where there part of them.

    "The narration is a negative"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was ok. Would I demand my money back, no it wasn't that bad. It just wasn't that riveting or surprising in the end. The entire book builds up to a secret. Then I just thought, that was it? All the narration is really distracting. Sometimes I couldn't even tell what character part was speaking. I personally did not care for Helena's voice reading at all. She seemed to be too blasé and made me dislike her even more.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Karen White? Why or why not?

    Yes, I don't judge authors by individual books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    No.


    Do you think The Time Between needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, not necessary.


    Any additional comments?

    This entire book just didn't fit well together, the story of the two sisters, being compared to the other sisters. I didn't get it. It passed the time for me, and I did read all the way to the end but was left with a disappointing feeling at the end.
