About the Book



"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?"--



Book Synopsis



From New York Times bestselling author Kristin Harmel, a beautifully repackaged and updated edition of "one of her best" (RT Book Reviews) historical novels.

Emily Emerson is used to being alone; her dad walked out on the family when she was a just a kid, her mom died when she was eighteen, and her beloved grandmother has just passed away as well. But when she's laid off from her reporting job, she finds herself completely adrift...until the day she receives a beautiful painting of a young woman standing at the edge of a sugarcane field under a violet sky. She recognizes the woman as her grandmother, but the painting arrived with no identification other than a handwritten note saying, "He never stopped loving her..."

Curious, Emily begins to do some digging and uncovers a fascinating moment in American history. Her trail leads her to the POW internment camps of 1940s 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 before she's done.

This new edition has been refreshed by the author and contains a new author's note, along with a teaser of Harmel's next historical novel.



Review Quotes




"Harmel's newest book, WHEN WE MEET AGAIN, is perhaps one of the most moving and powerful stories of all time, and potentially one of her best entries in the field thus far."-- "RT Book Reviews"

"Centering on a lesser-known facet of American history, WHEN WE MEET AGAIN is a gripping novel of history, art, and the power of love. Kristin Harmel's work is always riveting but her storytelling reaches new heights with a tale that is layered, complex, and satisfying to the last page."--Michelle Gable, bestselling author of THE PARIS APARTMENT

"Harmel...authentically weaves American history into this engaging novel. An appealing family saga that connects generations and reaffirms love."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Kristin Harmel writes with such insight and heart that her characters will stay with you long after you've finished her books."
--New York Times bestselling author Emily Giffin

"Richly told and emotionally evocative, WHEN WE MEET AGAIN, is a novel with a wide and thrilling sweep, and an impossible to resist hook: a beautiful painting of a mysterious woman surfaces as if from nowhere. Who is she? Who is her artist?... In this complex and poignant novel, through gorgeously crafted prose and wonderfully nuanced characters, we are reminded of the indomitability of the human spirit and of the redemptive power that follows once we have made peace with our past."---Barbara Taylor Sissel, bestselling author of CROOKED LITTLE LIES
