Book Review - You Knew Me When by Emily Liebert

About The Book:

Katherine Hill left her small New England hometown in pursuit of a dream. Now, twelve 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?

My Thoughts:

Childhood friends know each other's secrets and vulnerabilities well, and this fact comes out so well in Emily Liebert's brilliant novel, "You Knew Me When."

Through a cast of intriguing characters and a plot that will absolutely grab the reader's heart, Liebert creates a heart-tugging story that will remain memorable long after the last page is turned. This is a story of a friendship that amazingly manages to be resurrected after years of incredible pain and misunderstandings. Anyone who has had a beloved childhood friend who they've lost touch with will find this tale to be poignant.

I highly recommend this novel, and I look forward to Emily Liebert's next book!
