"Heartbreaking, tender and romantic. This one tugs on the heartstrings." Karen 

Nicole met Ryan when he was a handsome, cocky teenager with a desire to fly high above the clouds. Ryan encouraged Nicole to dream big and promised her a lifetime of happiness, but several years into their lives together, they were faced with obstacles bigger than either had ever imagined. Their love faltered. They lost their way and considered what had once been unthinkable—the end of their forever. 

But now fate throws them a curve, an event that forces them back together, that strips their emotions bare and is both terrifying and strangely unifying. For the first time in a long while they have to face each other, and not only talk but also listen, because their lives depend on it—not only their lives, but also the life of their six-year-old son. 

Secrets and lies frame a perilous journey to the truth that takes Nicole and Ryan to Angel's Bay, a place where miracles sometimes happen. But in order to get that miracle, Nicole and Ryan must work together and learn how to trust and love each other again. Only then will they be able to save their family and find their way to happily ever after.

What the readers are saying…

    I really enjoyed this book. An emotional yet heart warming story of parents with an autistic child who was separated at birth from his twin brother. Adding to the plot, the kidnapping of the boys who formed a strong bond added suspense. I thought I had the kidnapper figured out until a twist near the end. A great HEA as the two families bonded together as a family unit.

    I love the Callaway series of books by Barbara Frothy. “Between Now and Forever” is one of my favorites. It’s the story of Nicole and Ryan whose love did not last through the stress of having a autistic child. Now that childl is missing and they must come together to find him. This book has many twists and turns that make it a “can’t put down” book.
  • Great Book!

    I really enjoyed this book. Barbara Freethy grabs your attention right away and doesn't let go. I couldn't put this book down till I was done. I have read the other 3 Callaway books as well and enjoyed each one. I love how each book has been focused on a different Callaway. In this book you will find there is mystery, suspense, and romance. It was a well thought out and written book. I can't wait for the next one.
