The Space In Between by Jen Minkman

The Space In Between
by Jen Minkman

My rating: 5 stars

Expected Publication Date: September 8, 2014


When Moira helps out her sister and brother in a Wiccan ritual on Halloween, the last thing she expects is to be swept away to a mystical wilderness. Sitting within the stones of the ancient circle of Penmaenmawr, Wales, she's convinced it's an illusion. But the dark-haired, handsome man with amnesia that Moira meets during her trance cannot be blinked away like a dream.

Hayko, the mysterious stranger, won’t let go. After returning home from her stone circle adventure, Moira is beckoned back night after night to the outlandish dreamland by an invisible force. But the hardest part isn't having to fight the terrifying creatures of these nightmares--it's realizing she’s falling for a guy without a past who isn’t real.

What if you really can fall in love with the man of your dreams?

The Space In BetweenMy Review 
The Space In Between by Jen Minkman

Can the power of a Wiccan ritual on Halloween cause one young woman to travel through a mystical veil and find the love of her life waiting for her? Or is this Fate’s plan to teach Moira the consequences and rippling effect of one rash decision? Jen Minkman’s The Space In Between took me on a journey of discovery, love and enlightenment along with her characters as her tale came to life like a butterfly coming out of its cocoon.

Why is Hayko trapped between worlds? Why is his memory of events before he arrived hidden from him? Night after night he joins Moira in her dreams and night after night they find a closeness that can only be described as love as they stand together against powerful forces from beyond.
By day Moira battles her own demons. With each battle, Moira loses a little more of herself until Hayko shows her she deserves more. Is he there to help her stand strong in life and believe in herself? Will he then just disappear or is Moira's greatest test yet to come?

Once again Jen Minkman creates a cast of characters in a world that feels real and possible. She has actually built two worlds within her tale, the In Between, with an almost dreamlike quality and the real world with all of its harsh realities. Ms. Minkman has given Moira inner turmoil that seems to hold her back, yet she shows great strength as she moves ahead. Every character is strategic to this tale, no matter how small their part is, they have an impact on the outcome. With the magic of her words, Ms. Minkman raises the question: What if you really can fall in love with the man of your dreams?

I received an ARC edition from Jen Minkman in exchange for my honest review.
