Where We Belong: Time Between is written by Lori W. Duncan. When Addyson Caldwell lands a job as a tour guide, she is delighted. In addition to her being pleased at successfully landing a summer job, she will also be away from home for the first time. It seems too good to be true. The position is a live-in position acting as a tour guide in the Bowen family’s beautiful Victorian mansion. The mere thought of spending her summer there overwhelms her. She cannot wait to begin the adventure, and arrives to settle into the huge house after a hasty welcome. Meeting her neighbor, Nathan Burgess, begins as a huge plus. He is handsome beyond words, and is sought out by many young girls in the town. However, shortly after settling into her position, Addyson begins to encounter some questionable behavior from Nathan, and she starts to doubt his integrity. In addition to this challenge, she has a disturbing encounter with a young man who suddenly appears in the house without invitation. When he refuses to leave, Addyson begins to fear for her safety. As time passes, she is cast into a role for which she is absolutely unprepared. How she deals with the unexpected situation and the intruder is a fascinating tale stretching over decades.
This is a totally absorbing story. Addyson is young and impressionable; trusting and naïve. What she encounters in the Bowen mansion turns her world upside down, as she discovers a life beyond her deepest imaginings. I admit to being hooked on this book right from the beginning. The characters work their magic as the story progresses, as life for Addyson takes on a whole new meaning. I confidently recommend this wonderful book. Excellent story. Unusual setting and plot.
