"In Another Time is a beautifully written, utterly romantic story about a love that transcends time. The sort of book you wish could never end."--Popsugar, 28 Buzzy Books to Read this Spring

"Cantor 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."--Kirkus

"Compelling... you will be swept away by this beautiful story about the bonds of love and the strength of the human spirit."--BookBub

"Jillian Cantor has penned a heartbreaking love story that will leave you sobbing in In Another Time."--Popsugar, 30 Must-Read Books of 2019

"Jillian Cantor's In Another Time is a love song to the most powerful of all human emotions: hope. It is the story of Max and Hanna, two star-crossed lovers fighting to stay together during an impossible moment in history. It is gripping, mysterious, romantic, and altogether unique. I was enchanted by this beautiful, heartbreaking novel."--Ariel Lawhon, author of I Was Anastasia

"Filled with haunting prose, rich historical detail, and an immersive setting, In Another Time is a spellbinding story about the power of love and the strength of the human spirit. Moving and timely, Cantor's novel provides an unflinching and nuanced glimpse of life in pre-war Berlin and offers a stark reminder of the personal cost of war and its aftermath. A stunning, transporting novel."--Chanel Cleeton, author of Next Year in Havana

"In Cantor's superb novel, two kindred spirits struggle against the insidious rise of fascism in pre-World War II Germany. In Another Time is a stunning testament to the power of books, music, and love, and how they can endure, and ultimately prevail, during calamitous times."--Fiona Davis, national bestselling author of The Masterpiece

"In Another Time returns readers to the place for which Jillian Cantor is known and adored: the heroism and heartbreak of the Second World War. Bookended by dueling narratives set in pre-war Berlin and cities across post-war Europe, In Another Time chronicles the star-crossed love between Hanna, a Jewish violin virtuoso and Max, a non-Jew. With her bracing prose and unflinching eye, Cantor catches us up in the sweep of history and reminds us of the interminable power of the human bond and the moments that can last a lifetime."--Pam Jenoff, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Orphan's Tale

From the Back Cover

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 feels a powerful chemistry. Soon they fall in love and plan for the future. But Hanna is Jewish and Max is not, and as their love affair unfolds over the next five years, their love is tested when Hitler rises to power. Unbeknownst to Hanna, however, Max has a secret--a secret that Max is convinced will help him save Hanna if Germany becomes too dangerous for her.

Germany, 1946: Hanna Ginsberg awakens in a field outside Berlin. Disoriented and afraid, she has no memory of the past ten years. With no information as to Max's whereabouts--or if he is even still alive--she moves to London to live with her sister where she throws herself into her music, chasing her lifelong dream of becoming a concert violinist. But 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 ten years after--In Another Time is a beautiful novel about love and survival, passion and music, across time and continents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different and creative
Reviewed in the United States on 7 March 2019
Rather than concentrating on the period of WWII that relishes in combat and fighting, this story focuses on the before (1931-36) and after (1946-59).
The setting for this novel centers on Hitler's rise to power in Germany and the affect of his reign after the war in London, Vienna, and Paris--the concentration being on the sociology therein. The romantic storyline of the main characters (Hanna and Max) revolves around Hitlers rise to Chancellor, followed by Germany leaving the League of Nations, the greater imposition of new anti-Semitic laws, then Hitler becoming fuhrer, and so-on etc...while showing the effects of this on their relationship since Hanna is a Jew and Max is not. Likewise when she wakes up ten years later, the plot continues to reveal the effects on the economy, social anthropology, and the new negative connotation of being a German in different parts of Europe.

Lots of romance. The mystery starts at very beginning of prologue and pulls you in immediately. Do not skip the prologue!
I was caught off guard when a hint of science fiction was embedded within the story. At first I was skeptical of it, but in the end very appreciative. Dont let it stop you from finishing the story.

Perk---The top of the left sided pages remind readers of POV (Hanna or Max) and the year. I included a picture.
