Publisher's Summary

Katherine Hill left her small New England hometown in pursuit of a dream. Now, 12 years later, she's a high-powered cosmetics executive in Manhattan and a much glossier version of her former self, unrecognizable to her family and old friends. Not that she would know - she hasn't been home in over a decade. Laney Marten always swore she'd never get "stuck" in Manchester, Vermont. No, she was destined to live out her glamorous big-city dreams. Instead, she wound up a young wife and mother. That was when her best friend ran out. When Katherine receives word of an inheritance from former neighbor Luella Hancock, she reluctantly returns home to the people and places she left behind. Hoping for a second chance, she's met by an unforgiving Laney, her former best friend. And there's someone else who's moved on without her - someone she once loved. Tethered to their shared inheritance of Luella's sprawling Victorian mansion, Katherine and Laney are forced to address their long-standing grudges. Through this, they come to understand that while life has taken them in different directions, ultimately the bonds of friendship and sisterhood still bind them together. But are some wounds too old and deep to mend?

    "A good read!"
    If you could sum up You Knew Me When in three words, what would they be?

    Touching, relationships, human


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think this is a story that everyone can relate to.


    What does Erin Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brought the characters to life so you could actually see them in your mind.


    If you could take any character from You Knew Me When out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Luella, for her insite.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a pleasant, feel good read.

    Story
    "What a fun book!"

    I loved this book. The girls became best friends at 11 years old-living two doors apart -running back and forth- inseparable. In the house between them was an older single woman who was their friend and surrogate mother Also a love story with the older brother and years of separation upon college graduation.

    "Not very good."

    I had to force myself to finish it. I don't recommend this one. It didn't pull me in.
