Up until last year, I hadn’t heard of Karen White, which is surprising considering she’s the author of several novels. I’ve now read and reviewed last year’s Sea Change, as well as After the Rain, an older novel that was re-released. I enjoy her novels in the women’s fiction genre, all set in the south, featuring realistic characters and well-described settings.
Her newest novel, The Time Between, is set on Edisto Island, off the coast of Charleston, and is a story of betrayal and forgiveness. Eleanor Murray lives with her aging mother, wheelchair-bound sister, Eve, and Eve’s husband, Glen. She also lives with the guilt of causing the accident that paralyzed Eve, and the knowledge that it is Eve who Glen loves. She spends her days working at an investment firm, taking Eve to various doctor’s appointments and cooking and cleaning for her family. To say her life is not her own would be an understatement.
