School has just let out and summer vacation is on the horizon for ten-year-old Anna Hendricks, and her sisters. That summer is historically ingrained in the minds of adults and children alike. Bobby Kennedy had been assassinated only two months after the assassination of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. The summer is filled with curiosity, conflict, cause and consequence. Tragedy and death invade the folks of Springville in unexpected ways.
Young Anna is a quiet and sensitive child, concerned about those around her, to the point of anxiously, and secretly, bearing a load of guilt. The Space in Between is told from Anna’s perspective — it is heart-warming, touching and gut-wrenching, as well as infused with sweetness and light.
Central to the lives of the Hendricks family is their faith in God, but is it enough to save them all in the end?
