Publisher's Summary

Sometimes hope for the future is found in the ashes of yesterday.

Shane Galanter is a man ready to put down roots after years of searching. But is he making the right choice? Or is there a woman somewhere who even now remembers, as does he, those long-ago days, and a love that hasn't faded with time?

Lauren Gibbs, a successful international war correspondent, gave up on happily-ever-after years ago when it was ripped away from her. Since then, she's never looked back. So how come she can't put to rest the one question that haunts her: Why is life so empty?

Emily Anderson, a college freshman raised by her grandparents, is about to take her first internship as a journalist. But before she can move ahead, she discovers a love story whose tragic ending came with her birth. As a result, she is drawn to look back and search out the mother she's never met.

A young woman seeking answers to her heart's deep questions. A man and woman separated by lies and long years, yet who have never forgotten each other. With hallmark tenderness and power, Karen Kingsbury weaves a tapestry of lives, losses, love, and faith, and the miracle of resurrection.

    "Beautifully crafted"

    A story that will make you cry and really think. I will save this for anyone I know with a teenagers in the home, or a teen themselves. Great thoughts on war and peace, friendship and true love.

    Story
    "Not Her Best but Good"

    This had an interesting story but I just thought it was a little far fetched. Overall it ended up being a great story of love and triumph. The narrator is definitely not my favorite but I like Karen's book so I stuck with it! A nice easy listen that kept my interest.

    "Not her best"

    Karen Kingsbury is one of my favorite Christian authors. I've loved all of her books, but "Even Now" didn't make the mark. I found it to be very slow moving, and the narrator was poor. All of her voices were very similar, and the young adults sounded like young children.

    "Fantastic book!"

    I love Karen's books and this was no exception. She keeps you interested from the very first sentence of the epilog and holds your interest and enthusiasm till the very end.
