Emily thinks she’s lost everything…until a mysterious painting leads her to what she wants most in the world. The new novel from the author of international bestsellers The Sweetness of Forgetting and The Life Intended shows why her books are hailed as “engaging” (People), “absorbing” (Kirkus Reviews) and “enthralling” (Fresh Fiction). Emily Emerson is used to being alone; her dad ran out on the family when she was a just a kid, her mom died when she was seventeen, and her beloved grandmother has just passed away as well. But when she’s laid off from her reporting job, she finds herself completely at sea…until the day she receives a beautiful, haunting painting of a young woman standing at the edge of a sugarcane field under a violet sky. That woman is recognizable as her grandmother—and the painting arrived with no identification other than a handwritten note saying, “He always loved her.” Emily is hungry for roots and family, so she begins to dig. And as she does, she uncovers a fascinating era in American history. Her trail leads her to the POW internment camps of Florida, where German prisoners worked for American farmers...and sometimes fell in love with American women. But how does this all connect to the painting? The answer to that question will take Emily on a road that leads from the sweltering Everglades to Munich, Germany and back to the Atlanta art scene before she’s done. Along the way, she finds herself tempted to tear down her carefully tended walls at last; she’s seeing another side of her father, and a new angle on her painful family history. But she still has secrets, ones she’s been keeping locked inside for years. Will this journey bring her the strength to confront them at last?

Ray and Betty Whipps both served in Europe during WWII: Ray as an infantryman under General Patton in the trenches of Normandy, Paris, and Belgium, and Betty as a field nurse in Cherbourg, France. The two met when Betty tended to Ray after he was injured in a mortar blast. Both strong Christians, the two bonded over their shared faith, and as Betty nursed Ray back to health, they fell in love and vowed to marry after the war. However, soon after Ray returned to his unit, he was captured by German forces and held captive in Stalag VII, Germany’s largest prisoner of war camp. It was there that Ray’s faith was put to the ultimate test as he endured the most horrific weeks of his life—weeks marked by brutality, malnutrition, back-breaking labor, and near-constant death. The only thing that kept him alive was the dream of someday reuniting with Betty. Told in first person from Ray’s perspective, with personal wartime letters from Betty interspersed throughout, ’Til We Meet Again is a sweeping love story set amid the backdrop of WWII. The perfect combination of “in the trenches” battlefield accounts and classic 1940s romance, this memoir reads almost like a novel. It is an epic story of faith, hope, and love, and a nostalgic look back at one of the most memorable periods in American history.

"Suddenly, an arm wrapped my shoulder. I was about to jump off the sink giving a long loud shriek, but he held my mouth with his palm.

From @r.cliftpoetry comes so intimately a collection of memories, a snapshot of her heart, like nothing she has ever written or shared before. A travel memoir written in poetry, of backpacking through Europe in the summer of 2019. Filled with daily poem entries, imperfect polaroids, never-to-be-sent postcards, and 3-hour-train-ride illustrations all pulled from the pages of her journals. This memoir began as a personal challenge, whatever her next trip was-- she would write a poem a day. Would she see growth? Would they be more about the place or about how she was feeling? What would she discover? She didn't know. But she wanted to find out. So, she wrote all through Spain, Italy, Greece, and England. When her last poem ended with the line 'until we meet again' she knew this endeavor had become bigger than herself. For a while, the poems sat unread, and she wasn't sure if they ever would be. She was afraid to share these words at first, afraid it was too real, messy, raw, flawed-- until she realized that is the very reason it should be shared. If you have found this book, it's for a reason. This book is for anyone who has ever felt lost within themselves. For the runaway broken hearts looking for a place to heal, to rest, and to become whole again. For the travelers plagued by wanderlust, who know all too well that one can still ache even in the most beautiful cities on Earth. She can only hope that through her story you might come closer to courage-- to let go of what burdens your heart.
