Cover TextIn 1931 Germany, Max Beissinger, the owner of a bookshop, and Hanna Ginsberg, a budding concert violinist, meet and fall in love. Their story unfolds over the next five years, as everything in Germany changes with Hitler's rise to power, and their love is tested, faced with a changing landscape and the realities of war, not the least of which is that Hanna is Jewish and Max is not. Max has a secret, too, causing him to leave Hanna for months at a time, and helping Max believe he will be able to save Hanna if things in Germany become too dangerous. In 1946, Hanna Ginsberg awakens in a field outside of Berlin, with no memory of the past ten years and no idea what has happened to Max, not knowing his whereabouts or even if he's alive. After moving to London to live with her sister, she slowly rebuilds her life and works to become the concert violinist she always dreamed she would be. But as the years pass, and life, and her violin, take her from London to Paris to Vienna to America, she continues to be haunted by her forgotten past, and the fate of the man she loved. Unfolding in alternating stories - Max in the years leading up to WWII, and Hanna in the ten years after - In Another Time is a novel about love and survival, passion and music, across time and continents.
Additional textCantor elevates love as a powerful force that transcends tragedy and shows how music speaks to even the cruelest hearts. [In Another Time is] a powerful story that exalts the strength of the human spirit.
SummaryA sweeping historical novel, IN ANOTHER TIME spans Germany, England, and the United States and follows a young couple torn apart by circumstance and events leading up to World War II, one with a family secret that may prove to be their means for survival.
