Publisher Description

Liz used to have the luxury of time. Now she doesn't. In this bittersweet and emotional love story Liz Taite proves that it is never too late to begin to live the life of your dreams. 

One moment can change everything. When Liz Taite, the co-owner of a posh Manhattan art gallery, learns that she has only six months or less to live, she knows that she's running out of time.

So, she does exactly what most people wouldn't do: she leaves her blessed life –– minus the cheating husband –– and sets out to change her life in a way that surprises even her.

Ignoring her fears, she boards a train to Los Angeles to be closer to her kids and so begins her last adventure.

To make sense of the unraveling of her life, Liz begins to write a journal in which she feels free to not only to express her thoughts and fears but also to tell the story of her life.

Living in the now and with as little regret as possible, Liz slowly settles into her new reality. And just when she thought she had it all figured out, a series of extraordinary people enter Liz's world. Among them are a talented gardener, a retired basketball player, and a realtor named Susan who quickly becomes her friend.

Susan not only leads Liz to an enchanting house with a history, but also introduces her to Sam, a captivating veterinarian, who steals her heart and opens up a world to her that she never thought possible.

Inspiring and heartbreaking

I absolutely loved this novel by Olivia Barry. "The Hours In Between" is one woman’s journey, literally and figuratively. A story told in the form of a diary. Such a great choice! It all felt so personal and immediate. The minute Liz is broadsided with her diagnosis we’re broadsided too. One of my favorite moments is how the author describes Liz’s mental state when she walks out of the doctor’s office that first time. I was right there with her through her ups and downs. And when Liz decides to make changes to her life, I'm on that train to California rooting her on. As Miss Barry turns a sad story into a love story. A remarkable feat. This was a story about Liz but really it's a story about life. It shines a mirror on all of our lives asking, ‘Are you making the most out of yours?’ The author certainly made the most out of her compassionate, romantic novel. I know what I’m stuffing stockings with this winter!
