Growing up with a distant mother and absentee father, Michelle's childhood has been far from idyllic. Her only attention comes from her partying friends and the guys who are more than happy to give her the affection she longs for. But when one party goes wrong, Michelle's family hatches a plan to get her out of Chicago and away from her so-called friends.

College plans are low on Michelle's priority list, especially with no money to pay for it, until her grandparents offer to foot the bill for her entire tuition. There's just one catch. Michelle must choose between three schools - all hours away from Chicago and all Christian colleges.

Michelle's reluctant choice leads her to an unfamiliar place, where she's faced with new relationships and unexpected decisions that could change her life and her heart forever.




I've been a Krista Noorman fan for a while now and if there's one thing I can count on Noorman for, it's creating characters you can relate to. She did it again with Until Then. One of the areas that shined the most to me was the genuine remorse over sin that Krista was able to bring to life on the pages. Our heroine, Michelle, hasn't lived the life of a saint and we see the destroying power of sin very clearly in this novel. I was greatly impressed with the deep regret Michelle showed throughout the novel at various moments ... It's a beautiful story of redemption and a great lesson on sexual purity.

"When I first started this book, I wasn't sure about Michelle. But I quickly came to see how real she is. Everyone deals with the consequences of their actions. But not everyone learns and grows from them. Krista took Michelle's past and lack of good judgement and created an amazing story of personal growth and redemption. I read Goodbye, Magnolia first and I'm glad I did. It made Michelle's story all the more detailed and meaningful. ... I would consider this a clean book, but with a more mature theme. I highly recommend both books! I found it impossible to put either one of them down while reading them!"

••• Melanie Snitker, Author of the Love's Compass Series


"Wow, wow, wow and wow! ... So much goodness in this book ... I read Goodbye, Magnolia and had my mind made up about Michelle. Then this book comes along and completely changes my view of her! I loved going back to college and seeing how Michelle, Maggie, and Simon all came together. This book is about hurt, loneliness, sin, betrayal, and God's unconditional love He has for each and every one of us."

••• Karen W, Ting's Mom Books


"This is a story that isn't afraid to tackle the hard issues head on rather than gloss over them. It makes for a great ending that leaves you satisfied rather than feeling like this would never happen in real life. ... Krista Noorman deals with the realities of life in a way that has you simultaneously shaking your head at humanity and at the same time identifying in various ways with the characters. I really appreciated that she made me think about things more deeply and yet kept me thoroughly engaged in the story. I couldn't put it down!"

"Once I finished Until Then, I wanted to go back and re-read Goodbye, Magnolia! It magnified things from the first book. ... I really enjoyed the story and the concepts of redemption and forgiveness that it illustrated."
