Next-door neighbors and ex-best friends Hannah and Emory haven’t spoken in months. Not since the fight—the one where they said things they couldn’t take back.

Now, Emory is fine-tuning her UCLA performing arts application and trying to make the most of the months she has left with her boyfriend, Luke, before they head off to separate colleges. Meanwhile, Hannah’s strong faith is shaken when her family’s financial problems come to light, and she finds herself turning to unexpected places—and people—for answers to the difficult questions she’s suddenly facing.

No matter how much Hannah and Emory desperately want to bridge the thirty-six steps between their bedroom windows, they can’t. Not anymore.

Until their paths cross unexpectedly when, one night, Hannah finds Luke doubled over in his car outside her house. In the aftermath of the accident, all three struggle to understand what happened in their own ways. But when a devastating secret about Hannah and Emory’s argument ultimately comes to light, they must all reexamine the things they hold true.

In alternating chapters, a skeptic and a believer piece together the story of their complex relationship with help from the boy caught somewhere in the middle. New York Times best-selling author Tamara Ireland Stone deftly crafts a moving portrait of faith, love, and friendship.

PRAISE FOR “LITTLE DO WE KNOW”

“Touching on weighty issues, including sexual harassment, religious crises, friendship, and taboo love, Stone writes a thought-provoking novel that challenges conventional ideas. With well-developed detail, the characters have realistic vulnerabilities and experience profound transformations that lead them to look at the world differently.” — Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“These characters are clearheaded and sympathetic, and the narrative avoids typecasting them or straying into melodrama. A life-affirming story of friendship, love, and faith.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Stone picks carefully through all the emotional threads of faith, denial, and betrayal.” — The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“There are a number of interesting story lines that respectfully twist around the issue of religious faith… [and] believable characters, individually strong and yet mourning the loss of an integral relationship.” — Booklist

“A sharp, affirming look at the boundaries of faith, the resilience of families, and all of the imperfect ways that we love one another. Through Hannah and Emory, Tamara Ireland Stone has created a beautiful testament to friendship and the intricate patterns we weave throughout each other’s lives.” — Robin Benway, National Book Award winner and New York Times-bestselling author of Far From the Tree

“A gorgeously written and incredibly moving story of faith, love, and friendship. This book broke my heart and I loved every minute of it.” — Robyn Schneider, author of The Beginning of Everything

“A beautiful, affecting novel. The sense of two forever-best friends, the shocking event that drives them apart, kept me reading and hoping they could find their way back to each other. With compassion and wisdom, Tamara Ireland Stone writes compellingly about the power of friendship, of love.” — New York Times best-selling author, Luanne Rice

“A compulsively readable romance which follows three characters grappling with their world views in a time of crisis. A true moving portrait of faith, love, and friendship.” — Justine Magazine

If you could read my mind, you wouldn’t be smiling.

Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can’t turn off.

Second-guessing every move, thought, and word makes daily life a struggle, and it doesn’t help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. Yet Sam knows she’d be truly crazy to leave the protection of the most popular girls in school. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret, right up there with Sam’s weekly visits to her psychiatrist.

Caroline introduces Sam to Poet’s Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more “normal” than she ever has as part of the popular crowd . . . until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.

Anna and Bennett’s thrilling, unforgettable love story sparkles in this collection of New York Times best-selling author Tamara Ireland Stone’s first two novels, Time Between Us and Time After Time.

TIME BETWEEN US

Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett’s unique ability to travel through time and space brings him into Anna’s life, and with him, a new world of adventure and possibility. As their relationship deepens, they face the reality that time might knock Bennett back where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate-and what consequences they can bear in order to stay together.

TIME AFTER TIME

Bennett’s unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work…until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn’t want?

Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet. Why would they? Anna’s a sixteen-year-old in 1995, fiercely determined to secure a running scholarship so she can leave her quiet, dull town and finally travel the world. Bennett’s a seventeen-year-old in 2012, living in San Francisco and trying to control his ability to travel through time – an incredible gift, but also an unpredictable curse, which constantly threatens to separate him from the people he loves.

When a minor lapse in judgment puts his sister Brooke in danger, Bennett finds himself two thousand miles and seventeen years away – in Anna’s world. As he searches for Brooke, Bennett is strangely and inescapably drawn to Anna, who feels sure she’s seen him somewhere before. Through the gorgeous, mysterious newcomer, able to travel anywhere in a split second, Anna visits deserted tropical beaches and stunning mediterranean coastlines for the first time, and they can’t help falling for one another.

But they both know, deep down, that it can never last. For no matter how desperate Bennett is to stay with Anna, his uncontrollable condition will inevitably knock him right back to where he belongs – and Anna will be left to pick up the pieces.

Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn’t. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds.

It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work…until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn’t want?

Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us’s Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.

PRAISE FOR “TIME AFTER TIME”

“One of the best sequels I’ve read! Tamara Ireland Stone gives readers a smart love story with intelligent characters. . . Bittersweet, funny and heart-achingly romantic, Time After Time pulls at your heart-strings, ties them up in knots and reminds us that true love really does stand the test of time.” Young Adult Books Central

“The plot marches along at a good pace and those who like romance/adventure stories will want to find out if Anna and Bennett end up together. With the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who and movies like About Time (2013) at the box office, the time-travel theme gives this book plenty of pop-culture cachet.” — School Library Journal

“Perfect! Wonderful! Delightful! Both books in this series were a fresh take on the time traveler story and were remarkably good reads.” — Hastings High School Library, Dallas, TX

“If you are a crazy romance fan, this is definitely the book for you.” — The Guardian

“Anna and Bennett have a true long distance relationship! I’d give it to:  Everyone who likes time travel and romance novels.  Both of these books are moving reads.” — Plano Texas Public Library

Time After Time is a smart romantic series that’s perfect for realistic fiction fans who want to branch out and read something a little more fantastic.” — Arlington Public Library

“I had been in a sort of reading slump lately, and this was just the book I needed to bring me out of it! I flew through it and finished it in a day, which is rare for me. If you’re looking for a satisfying, emotional love story with a time-travel twist, look no further than Time After Time!” — Public Librarian, Indiana

“So many sequels fall flat or completely lose the tone of the first book, but [Time After Time] is an awesome sequel to Time Between Us.” —  The Caffeinated Librarian

“There are few authors that touch us on a level that we can’t explain. The beauty, the simplicity, the way that they are able to string words together touch our hearts in ways that few writers do. Stone is one of those authors. Her writing is beautiful… she makes you understand and wish for more in life.” — Fangirlish
