Before and Ever Since
Fans of Jodi Thomas and Lori Wilde will love this sparkling romance from Sharla Lovelace, the bestselling author of Just One Day and The Reason Is You. More
Emily Lockwood has her hands full with a stubbornly independent daughter, an ex-husband who sometimes tests her patience, and a mother who often does. But Emily also has a devastating secret, one she thought she’d buried long ago—along with her feelings for Ben Landry.
From childhood friends to young lovers, Ben and Emily shared an unbreakable bond and were as close as two people could get. Or so she’d thought, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now, twenty years later, Ben is back, and seeing him does more than trigger memories and tug at her heart.
As Emily works to keep her secret safe and her heart safer, visions of her past begin playing out before her eyes, making her see herself, Ben, and every choice she’s ever made in a revealing new light. And for Emily, seeing her life in rewind makes her realize she has some hard choices to make—choices that could forever change her life and the lives of everyone she loves . . .
