Parnassus Books is happy to welcome Karen Kingbury, author of When We Were Young.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a rare and beautiful love story about a beautiful young couple on the eve of their divorce. It is a story that takes place in twenty-four hours and raises the question: What if you could see where your choices are taking you.
From their first meeting, to their stunning engagement and lavish wedding, to their happily-ever-after, Noah and Emily Carter were meant to be together. Theirs is a special kind of love and they want the world to know. They’ve been letting more than a million adoring fans follow their lives on Instagram, @When_We_Were_Young, since the day Noah proposed to Emily. But behind the carefully staged photos and entertaining posts, their life is anything but a fairy tale and Noah’s social media obsession has ruined everything.
Distraught, Emily reaches out to her friend Kari Baxter Taylor and tells her the truth: Noah and Emily have decided to call it quits and Noah is leaving in the morning. Kari prays for a miracle. But deep inside, Kari knows she needs a miracle herself. She and her husband, Ryan are facing their own crisis – one that is guaranteed to change their marriage forever.
Meanwhile, Noah Carter is ready for his new life to begin, ready to start over without Emily. Tomorrow. But when he wakes up in the morning, everything is different. Emily and the kids have changed and things are not what they seem. Desperate, he tries to undo his mistake, but it’s too late. It would take a miracle to return to yesterday.
When We Were Young is a rare and beautiful love story that takes place in a single day. It’s about the gift of knowing what tomorrow will bring if you really walk out that door today.
