IN ANOTHER TIME by Jillian Cantor & Giveaway



Love brought them together. But only time can save them…

Jill Cantor’s novel, IN ANOTHER TIME (HARPER), is a beautiful novel about love and survival, passion and music, across time and continents.

I’m always amazed to read novels that focus on little known pieces of WWII history. IN ANOTHER TIME is just such novel. It’s challenges us not to forget the Holocaust, while highlighting a very unfavorable truism which happened in the USA during WWII. I love history and music, so I was pleasantly enthralled by IN ANOTHER TIME. I’m sure you will be too.

A sweeping historical novel that spans Germany, England, and the United States and follows a young couple torn apart by circumstance leading up to World War II—and the family secret that may prove to be the means for survival.

1931, Germany. Bookshop owner Max Beissinger meets Hanna Ginsberg, a budding concert violinist, and immediately he feels a powerful chemistry between them. It isn’t long before they fall in love and begin making plans for the future. As their love affair unfolds over the next five years, the climate drastically changes in Germany as Hitler comes to power. Their love is tested with the new landscape and the realities of war, not the least of which is that Hanna is Jewish and Max is not. But unbeknownst to Hanna is the fact that Max has a secret, which causes him to leave for months at a time—a secret that Max is convinced will help him save Hanna if Germany becomes too dangerous for her because of her religion.

In 1946, Hanna Ginsberg awakens in a field outside of Berlin. Disoriented and afraid, she has no memory of the past ten years and no idea what has happened to Max. With no information as to Max’s whereabouts—or if he is even still alive—she decides to move to London to live with her sister while she gets her bearings. Even without an orchestra to play in, she throws herself completely into her music to keep alive her lifelong dream of becoming a concert violinist. But the music also serves as a balm to heal her deeply wounded heart and she eventually gets the opening she long hoped for. Even so, as the days, months, and years pass, taking her from London to Paris to Vienna to America, she continues to be haunted by her forgotten past, and the fate of the only man she has ever loved and cannot forget.

  1. Map of the heart by Susan Wiggs comes to mind. The story is told between two generations, one being during WWII.


  2. Not really sure. I can recall a book and what happened in it, but the name and author are escaping me. Which never happens. I just briefly looked through my kindle and I can’t locate it, but this one sounds good!


    1. The Christmastime Series by Linda Mahkovec. I love so many WWII books it was hard to choose. Thank you for the chance.


  3. I’m just getting started on WW2 novels, but I have a nice list of TBR books. This one looks great. I did enjoy Winds of War and War and Remembrance by Herman Wouk.


  4. I can’t wait to read this! I love reading about this time frame! I love book thief, number the stars and diary of Anne Frank


  5. I just finished The Last Year of the War and it was so good! There are so many good Historical Fiction books taking place during WWII. It is hard to pick a favorite.
