My new favorite of Elizabeth Scott's books, it features a protagonist really unlike the others from Scott's contemporaries. Abby is very strong, and is also insecure in a totally different way to the others: she genuinely believes she's inferior to her sister, and is resigned to being comparatively worthless.
My favorite thing about Elizabeth Scott's books is how she creates likeable but ultimately flawed characters. Abby had so many problems but I really connected with her, and wanted to comfort her through them all.
Eli was a fantastic love interest. He wasn't perfect either, but there was so much chemistry between him and Abby. Though I really wanted to shake Abby at the start and tell her to stop trying to make Eli like Tess, I'm glad she eventually realised.
The writing style was as emotive and beautiful as usual. My English teacher once said that authors never waste words, and Elizabeth Scott is one of the few authors I know of that really don't.
Overall, it was a really touching story of family, love, and loss.
I give Between Here And Forever a 5 out of 5.
