Tomorrow is release day for THE TIME BETWEEN! This is my first hardcover, and I'm so excited to be sharing it with my readers.
I'll be doing an extensive book tour and hope to meet many of you this summer. I'm also running a contest to win a collection of Chopin Nocturnes, which are featured prominently in the book. All you have to do is read an excerpt to enter! And don't forget to check out my photos page where I have pictures of my piano, a 1926 Mason & Hamlin grand--which plays a starring role in THE TIME BETWEEN!
Next up for me is the fourth and final book in the Tradd Street series--RETURN TO TRADD STREET--which will be published in January 2014.
Until next time, Happy Reading!

From New York Times Bestselling author Karen White, a stunning new novel about two generations of sisters who must learn to live with their darkest secrets...
Thirty-four-year-olf Eleanor Murray is consumed by guilt for causing the accident that paralyzed her sister--and for falling in love with her sister's husband. But when her boss offers her a part-time job caring for his elderly aunt, Helena, Eleanor accepts, hoping this good deed will help atone for her mistakes.
On Edisto Island, Eleanor bonds with Helena over their mutual love of music. Drawing the older woman out of her depression, Eleanor learns of her life with her sister in Hungary before and during World War II. She hears tales of passion and heartache, defiance and dangerous deception. And when the truth of Helena's and her sister's actions comes to light, Eleanor may finally allow herself to move past guilt and to embrace the song that lies deep in her heart...
