The Space Between by Sarah Ready is a romance novel about Andrea and Jace. Jace is a poor, orphaned young man from a musical family with lots of love. Andrea is the daughter of a mega-wealthy businessman and an heiress and was raised without love. The two met in Central Park and felt an instant connection that grew quickly to love. Due to circumstances they did not control, Andrea and Jace’s lives intersected and diverged two times before they experienced the happily ever after they are supposed to have, and they were the space between.
This contemporary romance novel is full of a passionate love that spans decades. I listened to this book as an audiobook and the narrators were perfect. This novel has so many emotional ups and downs and long passages that made me cry. I loved both the main characters, but Jace especially. His steadfast determination to hold onto love no matter what happened is inspirational as is Andrea’s willingness to sacrifice her own happiness in order to do what was right. This is my second book by this author and I believe I have become a life long fan. Her novels are poignant contemporary stories that draw the reader in. I definitely recommend this audiobook to lovers of contemporary romance similar to work by Josie Silver. I am voluntarily submitting this honest review after listening to an advanced complementary copy of this audiobook thanks to Netgalley, W. W. Crown, and the Independent Book Publishers Association.
