The Moment Between
It is us against the world, Abigail thought.
You and me… Sisters.
Abigail Bennett was completely in control of her life until tragedy pushed her to the brink of something she’d never experienced: obsession. Now, she’s given up everything she’s ever worked for to chase down the object of that obsession. His name is Tyler Kamp. As Abigail follows him across the border into Canada to a beautiful winery in British Columbia, her journey is awash in memories of family and childhood, especially those of her younger sister, Hailey. Dangerously beautiful yet indefinably needy, Hailey seemed to take all the risks Abigail avoided. Until now. But even as Abigail races into her future, her past continues to pull her back. Only when she is brought to the edge of her obsession will she be able to come to terms with the tragedy that ignited it.
A breathtaking story about the emotional risks of relationships, The Moment Between explores the cost of regret, the desire for revenge, and the redemptive power of forgiveness.

Romantic Times, 4 stars
“The Moment Between is a heart-wrenching story, beautifully rendered by an exciting new author who shows the courage it takes to step out of the moment of ‘what was’ and ‘is’ and grasp hold of „what can be‟ through the hope and promise God offers. This is a novel that should not be missed.”
Francine Rivers, best-selling author of Redeeming Love
“Nicole Baart’s The Moment Between is an exquisite look at the angst- and love-filled relationship between sisters. Baart skillfully paints this picture with the tenderness and empathy of a master artist, creating a work that will not soon be forgotten. This book is a treasure that should not be missed.”
Angela Hunt, best-selling author of The Face
“Haunting and evocative, The Moment Between is a stunning literary work. Baart captures beauty and madness alike in the finely wrought net of her immaculate prose, weaving a tale of the ties that bind as only a master storyteller can. The specters of her characters linger long after the covers are closed, impressed upon the mind, still moving the heart.”
Tosca Lee, author of Demon: A Memoir
“The Moment Between is a stark, agonizingly beautiful treatise on family, human frailty, and suffocating regret. With breathtaking prose, an every woman heroine, and a twisting journey, Nicole Baart unfolds hope in the darkest circumstances.”
Mary DeMuth, author of Daisy Chain
“Beautiful, complex, and rich. The great mystery at the heart of The Moment Between is not what happened but why. Nicole Baart gracefully peels back the layers to examine sibling love, brokenness, and healing that comes through redemption.”
Travis Thrasher, author of Ghostwriter
“A story about the emotional communion of two sisters that is as rich and complex as fine red wine. Baart’s story of a tragedy and one woman‟s yearning for atonement, for answers, and for peace, is both gritty and lyrical. Leavened by tenderness, it plumbs troubling questions of how much responsibility we bear to control our minds and actions, the paradoxical pitfalls that can come from harnessing both too tightly, and the mysterious grace of faith.”
Lisa McKay, author of My Hands Came Away Red
“Even though Abigail is entirely certain for whom she is searching, she is tragically unsure of what it is she wants or needs to find. The blind devotion of that quest is mesmerizing, ushering us along effortlessly in Nicole Baart’s new novel, The Moment Between. Meanwhile, as it has in all her work, Baart’s elegant prose becomes a lyric melody, its own kind of blessing to story and reader.”
