IN BOOK TWO OF THE DIVIDE (THE BETWEEN TIMES) WE SEE THE RESULTS OF PEOPLE BEING DIVIDED, PITTED AGAINST ONE ANOTHER BY GREED AND PERSONAL AGENDAS----AND WE SEE INDIVIDUALS LIKE JEWELL WILLING TO RISK IT ALL TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Marta Moran Bishop’s The Between Times is a terrific allegory–until the sucker punch. You think you’re reading a dystopian story set in some future time. Then you suddenly realize Bishop is writing about right now: The Between Times is a period in which we still have a chance save all we hold dear. Fail to marshal our collective powers, and we fail as a society, a culture, as a nation state, and the beacon to the world that America has always is snuffed, never to be reignited. Penned with all the visceral indictments of Sinclair’s The Jungle, we admire and pity Ben, fear for Jewell, grieve Roxanne, and loathe Mr. Horton and his kind. There is a cliffhanger ending that made me need to know more. Will the uprising in The Between Times save us? This series would make fascinating movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Book Two of THE BETWEEN TIMES author Marta Moran Bishop shows the power of standing together
Author Marta Moran Bishop is someone I have followed for quite some time; her books have a way of not just tugging at your heart but getting you to think as well. In Book Two of THE BETWEEN TIMES we see the results of people being divided, pitted against one another by greed and personal agendas----and we see individuals like Jewell willing to risk it all to make a difference.
The book takes us into the darkness of the world for sure, showing us how things could take an even worse turn, but we are reminded that each of us have the ability to stand up for what we know to be right---and we are not alone. Jewell realized that herself, and though it can be scary the alternative is even worse.
Full of messages that do the reader well to consider when it comes to the choices we make and the impact we're having on the place we call home, THE BETWEEN TIMES: The Divide is our call to unite before it's too late.
