The Space Between Time
Expected Publication Date: June 20th, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Fiction/ Drama/ Dark Comedy
“There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth…
Emma Maria Rossini appears to be the luckiest girl in the world. She’s the daughter of a beautiful and loving mother, and her father is one of the most famous film actors of his generation. She’s also the granddaughter of a rather eccentric and obscure Italian astrophysicist.
But as her seemingly charmed life begins to unravel, and Emma experiences love and tragedy, she ultimately finds solace in her once-derided grandfather’s Theorem on the universe.
The Space Between Time is humorous and poignant and offers the metaphor that we are all connected, even to those we have loved and not quite lost.”
The Space Between Time is a book that I could highly match up to a movie just due to how the plot and the pacing went.
In this book the plot and the pacing were matching perfectly both in good times and in bad times. The plot of this book was clear at certain moments whereas when readers get farther into the book it becomes much more unclear on the time that they are at and in some cases what they were doing making it a much more difficult read and in turn taking longer to get through.
However, the family relationship in this book really did help save it. The ways Emma and her grandfather talked was just plain out sarcastic and witty adding a level of humor towards the story. Also, having the family relationship in the book helped make it different from other books who focus mainly on romantic relationships and have no to little adult.
This book did focus on some romantic themes but it wasn’t too heavy that it dragged it down or made it a romantic book either.
While this book did have its issues on giving out information such as time, the family relationships and the humor allowed for this novel to prevail.

About the Author:
I was born in Paisley, central Scotland, which wasn’t my fault. That week, Eddie Calvert with Norrie Paramor and his Orchestra were Top of the Pops, with Oh, Mein Papa, as sung by a young German woman remembering her once-famous clown father. That gives a clue to my age, not my musical taste.
I was brought up in the west of Scotland and graduated from the University of Edinburgh. I still have the scroll, but it’s in Latin, so it could say anything.
I then worked briefly as a street actor, baby photographer, puppeteer and restaurant dogsbody before becoming a journalist. I started in Glasgow and ended up in London, covering news, features and politics. I interviewed motorbike ace Barry Sheene, Noel Edmonds threatened me with legal action and, because of a bureaucratic muddle, I was ordered out of Greece.
I then took a year to travel round the world, visiting 19 countries. Highlights included being threatened by a man with a gun in Dubai, being given an armed bodyguard by the PLO in Beirut (not the same person with a gun), and visiting Robert Louis Stevenson’s grave in Samoa. What I did for the rest of the year I can’t quite remember
Surprisingly, I was approached by a government agency to work in intelligence, which just shows how shoddy government recruitment was back then. However, it turned out to be very boring and I don’t like vodka martini.
Craving excitement and adventure, I ended up as a PR consultant, which is the fate of all journalists who haven’t won a Pulitzer Prize, and I’ve still to listen to Oh, Mein Papa.
I am married with two grown-up children and live in central Scotland. And that’s about it.
