The Space Between Before and After - Jean Reynolds Page I gave this book 4 stars because of the skill in presenting the new Holli, the childhood Hollianne, the son; all of the different perspectives at play within its pages. Usually when reading a book where chapters are written using different points of view, I come to care about one person's story more than others. With this book, I felt the chapters flowed in such a way that I was equally interested in all the characters. Other reviews have stated that the ending felt hurried, but I felt like it was a perfect ending and one that I didn't really see coming.
