Abigail Bennett was completely in control of her life until tragedy pushed her to the brink of something she’s never experienced: obsession. Now she’s given up everything she’s ever worked for to chase down the object of that obsession. His name is Tyler Kamp. As Abigail follows him across the border into Canada, her journey is awash in memories of family and childhood, especially those of her younger sister Hailey. Even as Abigail races into her future, her past pulls her back. Only when she is brought to the edge of her obsession will she be able to come to terms with the tragedy that ignited it.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy DeMordaunt | 2/1/2014

    " Sad telling of a troubled girl who commits suicide. The author does a nice job of telling this story for a reason...there was a young girl who killed herself while the author was a high school teacher. There was a lot of confusion and discussion among the other students and this book helped bring some understanding to a sorrowful situation. Glad for the perspective, sad about the topic. "

    " I guess this author just isn't for me after all. The drama seemed too contrived and I'm a bit surprised that I stuck with it. I kept waiting for it to redeem itself, but it never really did. Very tiring story "

    " I didn't even realize this was Christian fiction until after I had bought the book. I really liked that this author took a contemporary issue and addressed it without the typical religious catchwords that are typically associated with mental illness. It was brave to approach the subject the way she did in a Christian novel, but it really made the author stand out to me. Typically Christian fiction is formulaic, not well written, a version of dime novel romances without the sex. I love that every character in this book is a real person and the characters don't go around spouting off the sinner's prayer or the four spiritual laws. They just live their lives like normal people and if their faith shows, the author lets that stand for itself. No heavy handed repentance "come to Christ" scenes. I will definitely read more by this author. This is creative thought that really doesn't typically occur in the Christian fiction community. There isn't a split second of anything heavy-handed or preachy in it - I'd feel comfortable passing it along to non-Christian friends without worrying that they would think I was giving them a sermon. It's just a great book about family and forgiveness and doesn't force itself to be burdened with having to "prove" it's Christian lit. "

    " A little slow to start but liked the way the main character unfolded. Haunting tale of forgiveness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/19/2013

    " After all of the poorly written inspirational fiction I've read lately, it was nice to read a book that was beautifully written. The Moment Between is a really good book. The Bennett family dynamic was so real, espeically the relationship between Abigail and Hailey. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel | 11/28/2013

    " I'm sorry. I just could not get through the book. I read more than halfway through -- I just could not continue any longer. I had a hard time connecting with the characters and the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 8/21/2013

    " A compelling story of forgiveness and grace, this chronicles the lives of two sisters--one through the struggles of living bipolar and the other with the struggles of being her sister/friend/mother figure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Peters | 8/10/2013

    " I mostly liked this book. Learning a bit more about mental illness was helpful. The beginning and the end were the best parts for me. The middle seemed to drag. I so want to go visit the Pacific Northwest! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 5/21/2013

    " Kind of disturbing. A sister trying to seek revenge for her sister's suicide. Interesting read, but no real resolution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tj | 5/16/2013

    " At first this book was hard for me to get into, but once I did, I really enjoyed it. It was interesting for me to read how the suicide of a bi-polar family member affected Abigail. It seems like it might not be for everyone. "

    " Very interesting book about the dynamics of two sisters, from opposite sides of the spectrum. This one kept me guessing and on my toes. "
