About the Book
A powerfully moving story, The Moments in Between is a study on the grieving process and how God continues to work for the good of believers even when all hope seems lost.
Book SynopsisAn emotionally powerful story about moving forward when sorrow feels insurmountable to overcome.
In this richly nuanced psychological novel, J.R. Waller chronicles the disintegration of a marriage amidst a backdrop of grief and disillusionment.
Jane and James, a happy small-town couple, have their world shattered when their young son dies in a tragic car accident. In the ensuing fallout, the two enter a "full out domestic war" with each other. When James's mother has a heart attack, James leaves for Denmark to visit her, and to get away from Jane. However, what begins as a trip of escape quickly turns into something else for him and his wife. A powerfully moving story, The Moments in Between is a study on the grieving process and how God continues to work for the good of believers even when all hope seems lost.
A real page turner. J. R. accomplishes his purpose showing that God works in every circumstance of life - be it disappointment, trouble, inconvenience or grief - His invisible hand is there making certain whatever He ordains must necessarily come to pass. Readers will see how the supernatural power at work in James' life transformed his every heartache to nothing short of lasting joy.

Amazing how in less than 150 pages, Waller produced so many emotions in The Moments in Between. In just a few pages, I was quickly pulled into James' and Jane's lives in feeling their pain and frustration with each other, then in James' numbness in trying to deal with loss. The last chapter was hard to read through tears of hope and the expectation of healing and reconciliation. Highly, highly recommend!
