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....

Sisters- a little piece of heaven and hell

What did you love best about The Time Between?

This is a great story with an even greater mystery. The story line between two sets of sisters sets the tone of the story with a little hint of love story in the background. I love the development of the character, but missed the deeper development of the history of WWII and what could have been written in a bit more detail.

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

All three narrators did an outstanding job!!

Any additional comments?

Worth a credit, you will be transported into different worlds and enjoy really good writing.
