When We Meet Again

A novel by

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.

Genre: General Fiction

Praise for this book

"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

"Kristin Harmel writes with such insight and heart that her characters will stay with you long after you’ve finished her books." - 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
