Between here and the past, there lies a place……a place of longing for what has been rather than hoping for what could be.

A true artist, Violette is passionate and emotional. Climbing back into life after suffering a loss, she teeters on the precipice of a new relationship with Christian, a psychologist who not only understands her struggles but offers safety and his heart. As Violette and Christian begin to feel something they both thought impossible, tragedy strikes again. Violette becomes trapped in a place of past memories–and she finds that she may not want to come back.

What would it be like to choose a place between the past and the present?

This is the dilemma facing Violette in Violette Between, Alison Strobel’s latest book that is on blog tour this week.

I really enjoyed this book. If you like Lisa Samson and Susan Meissner, there’s a good chance you’ll like Alison Strobel. Her use of language and her ability to look at honest emotions in nontypical ways make this book refreshing. And if I weren’t so tired, I could probably say something even more descriptive about it.

And here’s an interesting fact: Alison and I also lived in the same condo complex in Orange County at the same time for about a year. Although we didn’t know it at the time. So, if that’s not reason enough to go out and buy the book, I don’t know what is.
