They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time
Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it’s his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.
As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence’s life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.
Here’s Renee Collins!
Music plays a big role in my writing process. It helps capture the feel of my characters or set the mood of the scene I want to write. Film scores are amazing for this. They’re so emotional and dramatic. But usually, I’ll have several non-film scores songs that I listen to repeatedly when I’m working on a novel. Writing on Until We Meet Again was no exception.
With this novel, I had two different lists of songs. One list was comprised of 1920’s and 30’s music.
I listened to these to get in that 20’s feel when writing scenes set in Lawrence’s POV. This list includes:
Anything Goes by Cole Porter
If You Were the Only Girl in the World, sung by Henry Burr
Happy Days Are Here Again, sung by Annette Hanshaw
Maybe, I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire, and If I Didn’t Care by The Ink Spots
My non-film scores modern songs:
Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Ray
Over the Love by Florence and The Machine
Fix You by Coldplay
We Belong Together by Gavin DeGraw
I’ve also had early readers send me songs that they think fit the book, which I love so much! Some of those are:
Like I’m Gonna Lose You by Meghan Trainor and John Legend
Find You, sung by Alex G
I Was Made For Loving You by Tory Kelly and Ed Sheeran
