Lindas Book Obsession Reviews “In Another Time” by Jillian Cantor, HarperPerennial, March 2019 Jillian Cantor, Author of “In Another Time” has written an intense, captivating, emotional, intriguing, enthralling, poignant, and beautifully written novel. The Genres for this novel are Historical Fiction, Fiction, Romance, and a little Science Fiction with Time Travel. The timeline for this story is between 1931 and 1946. The timeline does go to the past or future when it pertains to the characters or events in the story. The author describes her interesting characters as complex and complicated. In this novel, Jillian Cantor has layered a story with love, war, music, books, family, loss and hope. Max Beissenger, a book store owner first meets Hanna Ginsberg, a talented concert violinist in 1931. Max is immediately drawn to Hanna, and feels her music can be compared to fire and passion. The two are like magnets and are attracted to one another. As time goes on in Germany, it becomes apparent that Hanna is in grave danger, because she is Jewish. Max has a secret special closet in his store and home, and he is certain no one could possible understand what it means. Max leaves for months at a time, and is convinced that he can save Hanna. With Hitler in power, Germany is a devastating place for any Jew. In 1946, Hanna finds herself in Berlin near a church. She has no memories of the last ten years. The amazing thing is that Hanna does have the memory to play the violin as well as before. What has happened in the last ten years? What has happened to Max? I highly recommend this amazing novel to readers who enjoy a thought-provoking and well written story. I received an ARC from Edelweiss for my honest review. 3 likes

This book had myself GLUED to the pages and kinda mad at real-life when I had to step away from the book but it was totally worth losing sleep over to get to that heart-stopping ending that I'm still thinking about right now! Told from different viewpoints and in different years; you won't be getting confused, trust me! In 1931, we get Max's side of the story of being a bookshop owner during the start of a difficult time in Germany. Then, you get whisked to 1946 to Hanna's side of the story and it's there that we learn that Hanna has lost memories of the last ten years of her life. As Max & Hanna met by chance, problems start emerging from Hanna being Jewish and wanting to be a concert violinist during a time that Jews are getting their rights stripped from them. Then, you add in the simple fact that Max is not Jewish but hiding a secret of his own that will shape the future for both Hanna & Max. I don't want to spoil too much of this story but I will say that once Hanna finally remembers what happened during those ten years of lost memories, you will have a tear in your eye for what happened. Also, this book will not a happy ending kind of book but for what this story is; it's the perfect ending for these two souls who only wanted to be with each during a time that was forbidden. I do have to say that my only problem was that I didn't get into Hanna's story until the very end but I did like Max's side of the story. I don't know if how it was written or what but Hanna came off to me as being someone that was never happy no matter what she was doing until Max was in the picture. Overall, it was still a good read and it's a book that I would gladly re-read over again! Thank You to Jillian Cantor for this very good book that will get anyone to thinking and it made me want to read more books by you!! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Get Red PR!

The author gives a beautifully written story that spans decades, and countries, all the while focusing on a couple that love one another, but in a time that it wasn’t allowed. This is a historical novel and brings the times alive in such a real way, and we put faces to these individuals. Can’t you just picture someone not wanting to leave the only home they have ever known, telling themselves it will be ok, only it wasn’t! Up front I am not a lover of sci-fi, but given this time period, if it were only true, and would I wish for more to have it, yes! Love how it was woven into this book. While I might have yearned for a different ending, I so enjoyed this book! I received this book through Edelweiss and the Publisher Harper Perennial and was not required to give a positive review.
