In Another Time by Jillian Cantor

Hanna and Max found each other by accident or was there a reason they found each other? 

Whether it was an accident or for a reason, their love for each other was never ending.

Max walked in on Hanna practicing her violin, and much to his surprise, she wasn't too happy to have him there.  It did take a lot to get her attention, but once he did, he couldn't stay away.

We travel back and forth in time and learn of Hanna’s passion for music, her violin, and Max.
IN ANOTHER TIME tells the story of Max and Hanna before and after the war.  Hanna is the main focus after the war because something happened to her that caused her to lose the memory of ten years, but not the memory of Max and her marvelous talent of playing the violin.

Max isn’t mentioned after the war except in Hanna’s memories.  It is heartbreaking.

We see Max before the war and more interestingly we are introduced to the mystery of what could be behind the door in the bookshop that Max’s father had always forbidden him to enter.

The love between Max and Hanna was the main focus as well as the love of books and music.   You will keep hoping Hanna and Max find each other.

IN ANOTHER TIME is beautifully and smoothly written with characters you will want to know better.

Ms. Cantor immediately pulls you into the story line and into the lives of the characters with her marvelous tale and her well-researched story line.  

Readers will get a glimpse into a personal side of WWII.

IN ANOTHER TIME is a beautiful, beautiful tale of love, heartbreak, and an outstanding history lesson.  5/5
