About the book. The Time Between follows two generations of sisters with roots on Edisto Island. Eleanor Murray, now in Charleston, is offered work as a part-time caretaker to Helena back on Edisto, and accepts in hopes of returning to the place where she remembers being the most happy. Eleanor and Helena bond over their love of music and piano, learn from each other’s pasts, and in the process learn to move beyond the guilt they’ve both been carrying.
