Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes a classic story about second chances, featuring the beloved Baxter family and a young father who finds his whole world turned upside down on the eve of his divorce. 

From their first meeting to their stunning engagement and lavish wedding, to their happily ever after, Noah and Emily Carter were meant to be together. Theirs is a special kind of love, and they want the world to know. They’ve been letting more than a million adoring fans follow their lives @ThisIsLove since the day Noah proposed to Emily on bended knee. But behind the carefully staged photos and entertaining posts, their life is anything but a fairy tale, and Noah’s obsession has ruined everything. 

Distraught, Emily reaches out to her friend Kari Baxter Taylor and tells her the truth: Noah and Emily have decided to call it quits, and Noah is leaving in the morning. Kari prays for a miracle. But deep inside, Kari knows she needs a miracle herself. She and her husband, Ryan, are facing their own crisis - one that is guaranteed to change their marriage forever.   

Meanwhile, Noah Carter is ready for his new life to begin, ready to start over without Emily. Tomorrow. But when he wakes up in the morning, everything is different. Emily and the kids have changed, and things are not what they seem. Desperate, he tries to undo his mistake, but it’s too late. It would take a miracle to return to yesterday.   

The miracle Kari Baxter Taylor prayed for... 

Whether you’re meeting the Baxter family for the first time or finding them all over again, When We Were Young will restore your faith in true love and the power of a miracle to overcome all obstacles.

Best Book Ever!

I don’t usually write a review on books but this book really touched me deep down to my core. I think anyone who reads this will be touched in some way. I could not stop listening to this.

awesome

I wish I had read this book prior to my divorce years ago. Very touching and true when you think about how different life may be for your children had we stayed together. I would love to get the list of the 10 tips for marriage from this book

Male narrator was annoying.

The female narrator was good. The male narrator was too loud, over the top melodramatic, and dragged out the loud melodramatic parts. The story was okay, but somewhat disconnected. The story was similar to the plot of a popular classic Christmas movie.

Boring

This story started out good but it seemed like it keep looping over and over to the same thing. I got bored pretty fast with it. It did have a decent message but no real "story" to it.

Never gets started

Couldn’t finish listening. Feels like the story never gets started; slow moving story, too many adjectives and I think I can guess the ending. This after maybe an hour of listening.

I just didn’t care that much for this book- Not the best writing- average story, predictable. Male narrator’s voice had a irritating cadence.
