Back cover: Prohibition ... bootleg gin ... motion pictures ... Hallie Duer covers them all. As the star journalist for San Francisco's leading newspaper she probes the heart of the hottest stories of the day, when change is in the air and nothing will ever be the same again.
But Hallie, the professionally detached observer, meets her greatest challenge in James Riordan, the married Irish lawyer who transforms her into a passionate participant, a woman who dares to defy her time and place for love they said could never be.
The Los Angeles Times called Shirley Streshinsky's first magnificent bestseller, Hers the Kingdom, "a great California novel." A Time Between exceeds its promise. Not since A Farewell to Arms has a novel so captured the heart of an era and the soul of a woman ahead of her time.
