Karen White, a part-time resident of the WaterColor community, has penned her 16th novel — "The Time Between" — and will be reading from it and signing copies at The Blue Giraffe on June 25.

White said her latest work spans between 1944 Hungary to modern-day South Carolina .

"It's about sisters and forgiveness," she said.

The idea for the book came through an article the author came across in a newspaper a few years back.

The article was about two sisters who escaped Hungary in 1944, never married, lived in the same house together and were very socially active in their community. However, the sisters suddenly became reclusive, and a couple of years later, both were found dead in their home within days of each other.

"Obviously something happened to make them become reclusive, and while I didn't know what it was, it sparked my imagination and I made up my own story. So, it is a work of fiction," White said.

White doesn't have a sister, but her mother had five and she always enjoyed sitting in on their sisterly talks and watching their close interactions.
