You Knew Me When
Paperback, 352 pages
Publication date: September 3rd 2013 by NAL Trade
Setting: Manchester, Vermont (United States)
Best friends forever until life got in the way. 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? ~~ synopsis from Goodreads

About the collection: For the release of Emily Liebert’s highly anticipated novel You Knew Me When, Dodo by Pomellato has partnered with the author for an exclusive selection of charms that best reflect the personalities of her novel’s characters through their unique messages. Emily Liebert chooses the butterfly with the message “I love my freedom” for the high powered cosmetics executive Katherine Hill who does everything on her own and never takes no for an answer; the starfish “Handle with care” for the spirited and ever loyal Laney Marten who always says what’s on her mind whether you like it or not; and the angelfish whose message “You work miracles” echoes the relentlessly generous but also painstakingly private personality of Luella Hancock.
About Dodo: The idea for Dodo was born on Mauritius, the island where the real Dodo once lived. We were inspired by the story of the funny, flightless bird, and by the way locals strung shells together to create keepsakes. So Pomellato, one of the world’s famous jewelers, created charms to celebrate the Dodo and all the other creatures on the planet. Each 18kt gold charm has a special message. People all over the world collect Dodo charms and create unique pieces to tell the stories of their lives. www.dodo.it.
