    3. We all make choices And if it doesn t work out the way we wanted it to, we can spend a lifetime blaming ourselves or blaming others Either way, we ve spent a lifetime blaming instead if a lifetime doing other things This is a quote from one of the characters from whose point of view this story is told There are three of them Eleanor, her older sister, Eve and Helena, the elderly woman Eleanor is companion to Each voice is clearly labelled so the reader always knows where they are This manages to [...]


    4. I had no idea what to expect with this book and I d written it off until I saw the rave reviews Not that I always agree with rave reviews but this time I did I just didn t like the book description about a woman who feels guilty about paralyzing her sister then she holds a flame for her sister s husband then takes care of an old woman How depressing Obviously there was much .The book is told by different points of view and slowly reveals the way we punish ourselves for decisions we made years ag [...]


    5. We live, we love These are the choices we are given, to open doors, or to close them It is all we are given, and it is enough Two sets of sisters, decades apart, but so very similar in so many ways They carry the burden of guilt for the choices made, actions taken, and remorse in the aftermath They are tenacious, culturally astute, sometimes manipulative, fiercely loyal, deeply affecting Things do not always work out as we have planned, do they Sometimes the hardest thing is not to just survive [...]


    6. I read the first ten pages of this on my disaster commute, and I ve already made this face It has such good reviews I feel I have to keep going but why is the husband not taking care of Eve Why is everybody being so mean to the main character Why are these people already pissing me off so much It s possible I was just bitter because I was the only one on the extra crowded Green Line willing to give up my seat for the pregnant lady and I can t read while standing up precious reading time, gone St [...]


    7. This is a great reflective book to read We all have secrets that we desperately try to keep within us, that somehow seem to alter the decisions we make in our lives To quote the book, There is how we were before, and how we are now, and the time between is spent choosing which doors to open, and which to close This book takes place on Edisto Island, in South Carolina, where White adds some of the Gheechee lore into her story White has intertwined a group of characters that seem unlikely to find [...]


    8. Another book that makes Karen White one of my favorite authors This story combines the past and the present effortlessly, and shows that when you are full of secrets and guilt you become someone you no longer recognize when you look in the mirror Letting go often is hard but lets us return to our true selves.This story was told from several view points, and I was not a big fan of switching between them, but do understand it may have been the best way to get this story told White has a flair for [...]

    10. 4.5 stars This is a story that addresses feelings, choices and healing At first, I wasn t really sure how I felt about Eleanor and Eve, but all of the characters grew on me I adored Gigi and felt her joy of life I really liked the friendly antagonistic battle between Helena and Eleanor, I thought it really showed how they were learning to care for each other It was very sad reading Helena s story, but healing too Another good one by Ms White.


    11. This was a very sweet and loving story, albeit tragic and sad I have come to enjoy Karen s writing I appreciate the way she has POV s from the various women in her novels It really allows the reader to get into the mindset of the character This story was mostly about sisters and the bonds, secrets, and sacrifices they make in their lives I admit that because I did not grow up with any siblings, the story did not affect me the way it might have with others But the part that touches on Hungary and [...]


    12. This was a good book and i really give it three and a half stars The storyline was interesting The characters were uneven is the way I would describe them I wanted to know about some, and less about others Sometimes I felt there were important background information about the characters that was never explained fully That said, I felt like the descriptions became so flowery at times that I began skimming parts to avoid the over zealous descriptions Now, don t get me wrong, I love a good turn of [...]

    19. This is the second book I ve read by this author I m going to give her another try after this She has a book that looks promising The Time Between is melodramatic It s predictable Her descriptions are repetitious That was one of my problems with the first book I read of hers If I had to read about Finns grey assessing eyes one time I don t know Or the fact that his daughter liked pink Too much As a reader, you obviously want the book to be as descriptive as possible So you can see and hear ever [...]
