Description

Five-time Christy Award winner Lynn Austin is acclaimed as "one of the genre's best historical fiction novelists" (Library Journal). Set in Brooklyn, New York, during World War I, While We're Far Apart is a brilliant blend of captivating characters, heart-tugging emotions, and vivid spiritual truths. While a motherless girl longs for her daddy and a young lady hopes for a second chance at love, this poignant tale explores the uncertainty that stalks the homefront as the "War to End All Wars" rages in Europe.

Professional reviews

"In 1943, throngs of soldiers on New York City's streets inspire a young father, recently widowed, to enlist. A young woman with a secret crush on him volunteers to care for his children in their apartment, which is above the apartment of the landlord, who is Jewish. Suzanne Toren gives the elderly landlord a strong Yiddish accent that is edged with fear when he talks about his son who is missing in war-torn Europe. Toren's lively characterization of the children is appropriate for their ages and expressive of their fears at their father's enlistment. Toren also evokes the complex feelings of the young woman when she finds out she's adopted. As narrator, Toren provides an outstanding performance of a multifaceted drama. G.D.W.
