Would you consider the audio edition of The Moment Between to be better than the print version?

Definitely! I first heard this narrator in Lynn Austin's "A Proper Pursuit". Her voice is soothing and modulated and emotive... she did a fantastic job!


What did you like best about this story?

It is not a happy read, by any stretch, but it is a hopeful one. Nicole Baart tackles the difficult subject of suicide - seldom addressed in Christian fiction - with grace and complexity. Abby's obsession with the man she blames for her sister's death is complex and all-consuming, and Baart tackles many difficult subjects and point-of-view changes well.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Actually, I tried to get into this book several years ago and just couldn't; perhaps it was the brooding nature of portions, or the description of the suicide itself, but it took me putting it down years ago and picking it up again now, starting from the beginning, to really get into it.


Any additional comments?

As a Christian novel, it breaks many molds. Perhaps protestants will find the Catholic imagery a bit too heavy-handed, or Catholics may find it too protestant for their tastes, but as a Christian reader I have decided to take the book on its merits as a literary novel. It is skillfully drawn, with moments of beauty and moments of heartbreak, an ending I didn't see coming, and a fantastic performance by Jennifer Ikeda.
Highly recommended!
