Hannah Deane, a sweet ninety-year-old woman sets out on an unexpected journey that touches the lives of everyone she encounters. With companion Jack, her "friend" the angel, Hannah is transported to a place she has never been and set in the midst of people she has never known. Hope finds Hannah stranded in the cold and takes Hannah home with her. It doesn't take long for Hope, her daughter, Kaci, and her mother, Karla, to fall in love with this mysterious and wise old woman. All of their lives will be forever changed as a result of this seemingly random encounter. As the past collides with the present, hearts are mended, relationships are restored and faith is learned while prayers are being answered. Will Hannah have to leave her friends behind or can she merge the past and the present? Only God knows, and some of his angels...but Jack's not talking.

Between Now and Then by Joan Fennell Carringer reveals a complex story of love, loss, heartache, and faith. Carringer presents a complex and compelling story that draws the reader in for more. Family, love, and healing are the focus of this lovely story. I loved the concept and the story. I couldn't put it down. With twists and turns that compel you to keep reading, there is almost too much going on. I enjoyed the story and see huge potential in Joan Fennell Carringer's books. I will be reading the sequel, Angel Baby.
