  • When We Were Young continues the saga of the beloved fictional family
  • This latest Baxter family book shows how things look isn't real

“What if you could see into the future and know what will happen tomorrow, if you really walk out that door today. Pay attention. Life is not a dress rehearsal.”

What would you do if the perfect life was taken away from you?

Noah and Emily Carter had it all. From their spectacular engagement to their extravagant wedding to their fairytale romance, not a single thing was out of place. Theirs was a love almost too good to be true, and they wanted the world to see it all. Through their popular Instagram account, @When_We_Were_Young, Noah and Emily told the story of their whirlwind romance from the day Noah got down on one knee. But their posts and their lives aren’t the same thing.

One is faked, and one is falling apart.

With his growing obsession slowly eating away at their perfect life, Emily has only one person to whom she can turn: Kari Baxter Taylor. Confessing to Kari that her and Noah have decided to call it quits, and that Noah is about to leave her for good. Emily needs a miracle, and that is just what Kari prays for.

That, and her own much-needed miracle. One that keeps the crisis from ruining her own marriage.

And then something impossible happens…

Noah Carter wakes up, about to take his first steps into a new life, but everything has changed. Emily, his young wife, has disappeared. And their children are suddenly years older than when we went to sleep the night before.

Twenty years disappeared in the course of a single night, and with them went his chance for happiness. Desperate to start over again, Noah must reach out and confront his own failings if he ever wants a second change.

A story of love that takes place in a single day, When We Were Young is a story of looking back to see what is really important in life. A story of seizing the day, and realizing that the most important people in your life are around you right now.

That latest entry into the Baxter Family saga, When We Were Young offers a unique take on the Christmas Carol story.

Publisher's Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a classic story about second chances, featuring the beloved Baxter family and a young father who finds his whole world turned upside down on the eve of his divorce.

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 @When_We_Were_Young since the day Noah proposed to Emily on bended knee. But behind the carefully-staged photos and entertaining posts, their life is anything but a fairy tale and Noah's 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 undo his mistake, but it's too late. It would take a miracle to return to yesterday.

The miracle Kari Baxter Taylor prayed for...

Whether you're meeting the Baxter family for the first time, or finding them all over again, When We Were Young will restore your faith in true love, and the power of a miracle to overcome all obstacles.
