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.
