Between The Shadows by Casi McLean Book Review

Circumstances pulled York a hundred years into the past. As he learns to adapt to his new surroundings, he begins to accept that he never truly belonged into his own time. Just as he thinks that he can finally accept where he is, he stumbles upon a woman in trouble. A woman who came directly from the 1860s.

I really did enjoy this book very much. I do feel like it could have used a bit of work. Compared to the first two books, it fell a bit flat. I hate saying that. It’s not a horrible book at all. It could have just used a bit of flair and something. I can’t quite explain what it’s missing. I guess a bit of suspense in a few places. I’m probably just being a snob. I will state that there are a few triggering parts of the book. They are brief.

I really can’t say that I felt a connection to either of the main characters. I did empathize with their predicament. I think the one I felt most connected to was the granddaughter. She was strong and fierce and knew what she wanted out of life. She also made it her mission to try to help people live as long as they possibly could. She knows death is inevitable for all of us, but she strives to push it off as far as possible for most. That’s why she became a doctor.

This book was narrated by Kristin James. I really enjoyed the narration. Her transition was very smooth. I don’t believe she stumbled over anything or left anything out. I also loved how distinct she was with all of the characters. She didn’t narrate the first two books. I believe each book had a different narrator. I can understand why. They all had different main characters as well.

I really did enjoy this book. I didn’t enjoy it as much as I did the first two. I just felt something major was missing. I felt it could have used a bit more suspense and build up. I’m pretty sure that most of the feelings I have are personal. I’m not sure if anybody will have the same opinion as me. Despite my misgivings of what’s missing, it really is a wonderful book and well worth the read.
