Young Again

Authors Don Trowden and Valerie McKee are pleased to announce the release of their new novel, Young Again. Published by Publerati on May 17, 2022, the book is already receiving rave reviews from readers and reviewers.

A delightful novel filled with music, love, and inclusion…

What would you do with just one week of being young again?

This is the fun premise that sets Young Again in motion, combining music, magic, and romance in an uplifting fantasy novel. Mabel Johnson has recently turned ninety years old and lives alone near Clarksdale, Mississippi. She is nostalgic thinking back on her Grammy award-winning career as a blues and jazz performer. In frequent pain, she no longer can play the piano, and compounding matters, her granddaughter was recently killed in a tragic car accident.

Mabel's great-granddaughter Priscilla comes to visit for the week and prays that Mabel can be young again. When her prayer is answered, the two ladies set off on a week of romantic and musical adventures entangling a handsome young doctor, a music mogul, a homeless person, and an aspiring singer down on her luck. How they extricate themselves from their many lies provides the comic tension in this uplifting novel.

Set in Clarksdale, Mississippi, home of the Delta blues, this fantasy novel recounts some of the history of famous musicians including Muddy Waters, Nina Simone, and Peggy Lee.

Young Again is filled with song and laughter and will appeal to all those looking for a welcome escape.

About the Authors:
This is Valerie McKee's debut novel. An employee within the the New York City public school system, Valerie is a graduate of Tufts University and La Sorbonne. She has an MBA in Human Resources Management from the University of Phoenix.

This is Don Trowden's fifth published book. His novels include Normal Family (2012), No One Ran to the Altar (2016), All the Lies We Live (2018), and the non-fiction book The Isles of Shoals Remembered (1991).
