Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett has the unique ability to travel through time and space, which brings him into Anna’s life, and with him a new world of adventure and possibility.
As their relationship deepens, the two face the reality that time may knock Bennett back to where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate, what consequences they can bear in order to stay together, and whether their love can stand the test of time.
TIME BETWEEN US by Tamara Ireland Stone is a time traveling romance, Hello! sign me up. Since I read the Time Traveler's Wife I have been on an incessant quest to find another love story that spans space and time and now I need not look any further.
As the story opens I encounter Anna contemplating on a decision that can forever change the course of her life....
It's 1995 Chicago when Anna comes in contact with Bennett; but she is is attracted to him but he confuses her by running hot and cold, but it all makes sense when he tells her of his secret. Bennett can travel through space and time and he has come to Chicago to find someone and once he does he will go back to the future of 2012 San Francisco. Wow!! talk about dating issues. Since Bennett has to stay in the past for a while they decided to pursue their relationship despite not knowing when his time traveling will stop but they are helpless to the pull between them. Yet, the inevitable moment comes and just when I think I cannot take much more given an ending that is beyond satisfactory.
I really enjoyed this novel for it was romantic, engaging and thoroughly amazing. Witnessing Anna and Bennet's romance progress over time made me a silly romantic fool. I relished all their moments together and found that Bennet's ability to include Anna a nice twist on the previous time traveling novels I have read in the past.
TIME BETWEEN US is a wonderful read that is quite memorable and endearing and you will only wish for more. Now, if only I could go back in time and read this novel all over again.
