Before We Say Goodbye



Possibly my favorite title in the 4-book Before the Coffee Gets Cold series, Before We Say Goodbye is short but calmingly slow-paced audiobook at 4 1/2 hours. The stories are poignant, realistic tales of people who choose to travel back in time to address regrets, even though they cannot change the present. Here is the publisher's summary:


The regulars at the magical Café Funiculi Funicula are well acquainted with its famous legend and extraordinary time-travel offer. Many patrons have reunited with old flames, made amends with estranged family and visited loved ones. But the journey is not without risks, and there are rules to follow.
In the tradition of Toshikazu Kawaguchi’s sensational Before the Coffee Gets Cold Series, listeners will once again be introduced to a new set of visitors: the husband with something important left to say; the woman who couldn't bid her dog farewell; the woman who couldn't answer a proposal; and the daughter who drove her father away.
Featuring signature heartwarming characters and wistful storytelling, in the beautifully haunting Before We Say Goodbye, Kawaguchi asks: Who would you visit if you could travel through time?

Note: These books can all stand alone, you definitely don't need to read the series in order!
