Publisher's Summary

A sweeping historical novel that spans Germany, England, and the US 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.

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

Germany, 1931. 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 that 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 10 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 for which she long hoped. 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.

Told in alternating viewpoints - Max in the years leading up to WWII and Hanna in the 10 years after - In Another Time is a beautiful novel about love and survival, passion and music, across time and continents.

Hated the ending.

I loved this book and hated anytime I had to pause it. I was so enthralled in the story. Unfortunately in my opinion it was a big build up to absolutely nothing in the end. The ending completely ruined the story for me if I'm being honest. literally completely enthralled until the last chapter and then so disappointed. It was almost as if the author ran out of time in the last two or three chapters and just rushed through to an ending without ever explaining major parts of the story. I think it's still worth the listen though because the rest of it was amazing. And it's very possible that not everyone will feel the same about the ending as I did.

Felt defrauded

I predominantly listen to WWII stories. This one add in a time travel/s wifi element. I despise scifi, so beware.

Science fiction v historical romance

I had it figured out after 4-5 chapters. Didn’t like the American voice for German man Incongruous is the word for this book. Kinda a waste of my time and money but listened to the end just to see what happened. The. Author couldn’t even give it a happy ending This could have been such a good love story except for the ridiculous ¥¥[¥¥}[^£.?... but I will give this novelist a second chance

In another time

I did not enjoy one story line throughout the book that mixed with historical fiction in an unrealistic and distracting manner.

Disappointing - book ended with hero dying, and heroine never knowing his secret about the time tunnel in the closet. Never knowing what he risked for her & other Jews he saved from the nazis, nor ever knowing about the time tunnel AT ALL. And when the bookstore is bombed, nothing is mentioned about what happens to the TT.
ALSO, when Max does find Hannah again in the future, he tells her he “doesn’t have much time” and has to leave her again”. I finally figured out it was because he kept trying to go back in time to try to save her, but then realized he never does- that she ended up in a camp, and her violin playing saved her.


Also he does die very young from the effects of time travel, but he parents were able to use the tunnel numerous times before it effected them enough to finally cause death. No explanation of how his parents discovered it, what they saw in there, how you got to another time- did you come out of another closet?
Way too much is left unanswered. Leaves you with an empty feeling.
Also the heroine is extremely annoying refusing to leave Germany even when she sees other Jews being arrested and taken away? And you are thinking that she loses her memory because she was brought forward into the future, but then the reason given is the camp she was in was liberated JUST as she and others were before a firing squad.
And then she just walks away with her violin & ends up collapsing in a meadow & THAT’S when she loses her memory? And when she recovers it is nothing at all remarkable.
Hannah only notices he still looks young the last time He finds her, but never finds out WHY.
Just disappointing all the way around

Historical fiction meets sci-fi

Not for me. This book started out okay but the sci-fi twist was a bit much.
