Book Description

25 Oct 2012

Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet. Why would they? Anna is sixteen in 1995, fiercely determined to leave her quiet town and finally travel the world. Bennett's seventeen in 2012, living in San Francisco and trying to control his ability to travel through time - an incredible gift, but also an unpredictable curse, which constantly threatens to separate him from the people he loves.

When Bennett suddenly finds himself in Anna's world, they are inescapably drawn to one another - it's almost as if they have met before. But they both know, deep down, that it can never last. For no matter how desperate Bennett is to stay with Anna, his condition will inevitably knock him right back to where he belongs - and Anna will be left to pick up the pieces.

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I really do like reading books for young adults as the stories seem to have more meaning to them and seem less stilted.

In this, I loved the core ethos of the book, two people literally 'out of time', fated to find each other and fall in love. It is very much a book that is no strain at all to read, it grabs you without you noticing.

I had to laugh at Bennett's description of the early days of his new found ability and how his Dad loved it - despite his mum freaking out. It still makes me smile recounting it now. Well worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great YA Time Travel Story! 26 Jun 2013
By Sarah
(Source: I borrowed a copy of this book.)
16-year-old Anna loves running and wants to see the world, and when she meets Bennett Cooper she knows one other thing - she wants him.

Bennett behaves oddly though. At times it's like he already knows her, then other times he looks at her like he's never seen her before in his life.
When Anna's father's book store is robbed though, Bennett does something amazing; he appears in the store, grabs her hands, and suddenly they are in the park - Bennett has somehow teleported them out of the shop.
When Bennett begins to explain his `gifts' to Anna though, she discovers that he can do so much more than just move between places, he can also move between times.

Bennett is looking for his sister who he lost because of a jump that he shouldn't have attempted, but as soon as he finds her he'll be going back - to the year 2012.
Is it possible for Anna and Bennett to have a real relationship? What does the future hold for them? And will time ultimately come between them?

This was a great YA time-travel story, that reminded me a bit of `The Time Traveller's Wife'.

Anna and Bennett were both great characters, and they were so sweet together. This story had got a real Romeo and Juliet, forbidden love sort of feel to it, and it felt so unjust that Anna and Bennett would be separated by something that they couldn't overcome - Time.
I liked the mystery within the storyline of this book. Mystery over the first time that Anna and Bennett met, mystery over what Bennett's `gifts' were, and mystery over where the story would take us next. I also loved the mystery of what the future held for the pair of them as a couple, considering the fact that Bennett had travelled 17 years back in time to meet Anna!

4.0 out of 5 stars A YA Time Traveller's Wife 23 Mar 2013
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
If you know anything about me at all, it should be that I am a massive fan of time travel stories and so naturally, I gravitated towards this book. Billed as a YA Time Traveller's Wife, how could I possibly resist?!

Time Between Us tells the story of Anna and Bennett, two teenagers whose lives are tangled up together although Anna was actually born sixteen years prior to Bennett. Bennett is able to travel through time and is currently on a mission to find his sister who went missing during a previous trip they took together to attend a concert. During one of his trips, he meets and falls for Anna but can a relationship across time last the distance? How long will it be until Bennett is pulled back to his own time and what happens when he finds his sister and goes home?

Although the beginning of the book wasn't particularly shocking or dramatic, I was immediately caught up in the story as if I too had traveled to Anna's world. I really enjoyed the story and I loved the `do over's' and the moral/ethical debate over changing events and what the implications of their actions would be.

My favourite character has to be Anna and I really loved that she had interests and desires outside of Bennett, as the love interest (I guess they share their love of travel though.) All the way through the book, Anna came across as a strong, independent girl who believes in making the right choices, even if they are sometimes the most difficult to bear.

Time Between Us was beautifully easy to read - the writing was excellent and I enjoyed the nicely flowing sentences. I don't quite know how or why but some writers are able to elicit a calm feeling when reading and Tamara is one of those writers, for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Time Between Us 30 Mar 2014
By Fiona Mccaw VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is very much The Time Traveller's Wife for young adults, and it's mostly well done and engaging. The story starts in 2011, but quickly moves to 1995, where Anna is about to fall for mysterious newcomer Bennett. It's not long before she finds out about Bennett's time travelling gift, which brings her amazing new adventures but also threatens to tear them apart. The time jumps are well plotted and it never gets too confusing or convoluted, and it's an involving story. Bennett is a likeable character, but I did find the character of Anna a little irritating at times. The ending is also a little bit bland, but for fans of romance with a little touch of the supernatural, this is definitely a recommended read.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class! 18 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: She lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco.
Fortunately he has the power to travel in time and space.
When I read the blurb I thought this was going to be a load of rubbish. I was wrong.
This is a sensitively written love story with a deal of twists and turns. Both the main characters and the supporting characters are well drawn and the story rolls at a pace that makes this book difficult to put down. I'm not the target audience for the story - wrong sex, wrong age - but nevertheless I admired the craftsmanship that's gone into this tale.
Highly recommended!
