We'd Know By Then
In a monochrome world, Brighton Evans is a splash of brilliant color.
She can see the world in its true, kaleidoscopic form—a privilege reserved for soulmates only after they've found their other halves.
Knowing your soulmate when they come along should be easy, but Brighton can't remember a time when she hasn't seen in color. The past has her convinced that life is safer this way; she doesn't need a soulmate.
When Brighton meets a handsome, delightfully cheeky stranger, her carefully cultivated 'happy enough' crumbles as their meet-cute blossoms into true friendship. Cain Whitaker has soulmate written all over him.
With Cain by her side, Brighton sees the world as she never has before . . . until circumstance smothers her color and leaves her wondering: if timing is everything . . . is she too late?

"From the first page, Brighton’s colorful story steals the reader away into a unique, unprecedented world of black and white. Where soulmates are real, and their matching soul marks are genuinely once in a lifetime. Brighton’s voice and brilliant, stubborn mind are written with such carefully crafted nuance that it feels almost as though the reader is meeting an old friend from a lifetime ago." -Sheila Stone, ARC reviewer, Goodreads
"We’d Know By Then delves deep into the meaning of hope. Hope; a lesson found in many books, but not quite like in this one. To hold on to hope when everything seems bleak, to believe in hope when believing in anything seems too much. Hope keeps us going and paints light on the future. Pay attention." - Katie Warren, ARC reviewer, Goodreads
"The world-building in this book is executed so seamlessly, the magical elements feel real and natural instead of something added to our world. It's so immersive, you'll look up from the black and white pages and be surprised to find the real world doesn't match them. The way Bohling uses fantasy to explore serious, real-world topics is an amazing--sometimes sad--but always hopeful roller coaster of a journey you won't want to miss out on." - Shannon Bright, ARC reviewer, Goodreads
