Before I Knew You: A Novella Full of Thought, Heart, and Hope

 What would you do to fulfill the greatest desire of your heart?
Joanna was brought up to believe life is meant to follow a certain path. You meet a wonderful man, get married, have children—all in that order. Maybe, if you’re really ambitious, you have a career too. But a career isn’t what Joanna wants. She wants a family.
In the early 1970s, at nineteen-years-old, Joanna was the first of her friends to complete steps one and two of the plan. She thought she’d be the first to complete step three as well. Now, thirteen years later, she’s still holding onto her dream of having a child.
Of course, life sometimes offers us our dreams in ways we never would have imagined.
Can Joanna let go of her expectations, even if it means estranging herself from the family who raised her and, perhaps, the man she loves? What will she do to fulfil the strongest desire of her heart?

About the author

 Charlene Carr is a lover of words. Pursuing this life-long obsession, she studied literature in university, attaining both a BA and MA in English. Still craving more, she attained a degree in Journalism. After travelling the globe for several years and working as a freelance writer, editor, and facilitator she decided the time had come to focus on her true love - novel writing. She's loving every minute of it ... well, almost every minute. Some days her characters fight to have the story their way. (And they're almost always right!) 

Charlene lives in St. John's, Newfoundland and loves exploring the amazing coastline of her harbour town, dancing up a storm, and using her husband as a guinea pig for the healthy, yummy recipes she creates!
