Ambitious and determined, Hallie Duer craves to be at the center of her epoch—with Prohibition and bootleg gin, Model Ts and moving pictures, Red roundups and the routine lynching of Negroes. The old order is in upheaval, and the emerging new order is at last allowing extraordinary women their long-deserved place in the sun.
In this uncommon love story, Hallie, a consummate observer by profession, learns to become a passionate participant when she falls in love with a dynamic Irish lawyer, who is married but separated from his wife.

Editorial Reviews

“The author shares her skills as both a historian and a storyteller, and the character of her narrator is as well realized as a portrait of the times.” —Los Angeles Times“A Time Between registers favorably on several counts. It is the story of a strong woman striving to secure her own identity, a love story, a historical novel that recreates convincingly the California scene during the Jazz Age—and a bit of a mystery, too.” —Savannah News Press“You will like this book. A gutsy novel of women pushing into a man’s world. Shirley Streshinsky . . . punches out a kaleidoscope of the times.” —Houston Chronicle“[Streshinsky’s novels] are the best historical fiction being written in America.” —John Jay Osborn, Jr., bestselling author of Paper Chase
