Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Eleanor has spent half her life atoning for the accident that paralyzed her sister, Eve, when they were teenagers. Now in their thirties, the sisters live together in the South Carolina Low Country with their mother and Eve’s husband. Eleanor not only does the cooking and chauffeuring, she also provides the family with a steady paycheck. When Eleanor’s boss asks her to take a side job acting as caregiver for his elderly aunt Helena, she jumps at the chance—seeing it as an opportunity to spend time away from the stifling frustration she experiences at home. Little does she realize she’s exchanging one dysfunctional family for another. Helena has lots of secrets to hide, and her troubles go all the way back to WWII. Eleanor and Helena get off to a rocky start but soon discover they have plenty in common, having both spent their lives trying to win forgiveness from their sisters. White moves smoothly between narrators as well as different time periods, crafting an intriguing and romantic family drama that will appeal to fans of Sarah Jio and Dorothea Benton Frank. --Rebecca Vnuk

Review

“From its mesmerizing first scene, The Time Between propels you into the sun-baked world of the South Carolina Lowcountry, and a childhood tragedy that haunts the lives of two unforgettable sisters in love with the same man. In clear and gorgeous prose, White spins a luminous tale of love and loss, of betrayal and redemption, and of a harrowing family secret buried in the upheaval of the Second World War. This is storytelling of the highest order: the kind of book that leaves you both deeply satisfied and aching for more. No one weaves together the present and the past with greater magic than Karen White.”—Beatriz Williams, New York Times bestselling author of Tiny Little Thing

“White...crafts characters who transcend their romantic roles through their frailties and weaknesses.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“White moves smoothly between narrators as well as different time periods, crafting an intriguing and romantic family drama.”—Booklist
 
“White writes complex, heartbreaking novels with just enough pathos and plenty of redemption."—RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)
 
“Set in South Carolina’s idyllic Lowcountry against the bittersweet notes of a piano in mourning and a prophecy spoken in Gullah, The Time Between weaves a story as intricate and sturdy as a sweetgrass basket, with the fresh, magnetic voices of its headstrong characters.”—ArtsATL
 
The Time Between is a lyrically written, beautiful novel about atonement, love, and letting go. Engrossing and unforgettable.”—New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James
