Broken by love, Lincoln Fraser is back in the city of his birth. He’s been abandoned, betrayed, and doesn’t see how he can ever trust again.

Kali Johnson is stuck in a world that feels too much for her. Her husband’s gone, her son won’t talk, and her apartment is full of rats. Fearful she’s failing at life, all she wants is a second chance to make things right.

When a freak accident places Kali and her son in Lincoln’s path, he feels compelled to help this single mother and her child.

Unprepared for the challenge of letting anyone back into his life, Lincoln is faced with a question—continue to shut himself out from the world or slowly let someone in?

Raw, heartbreaking, but full of hope, Behind Our Lives, Book One in the Behind Our Lives Trilogy, is a story that will leave you wanting more.


Slide - Maxieboots, Goodreads Reviewer "This storyline was real ...
No alpha male. No skinny perfect blonde.
No mansion in the big city. No exceptional sex.
Pure, honest, scary, and hopeful."
Sounds just like my type of book!
Slide - Yvonne, Goodreads Reviewer "I absolutely love the depth of these characters...

Hmm, looks like no sleep for me!

Charlene Carr is a lover of words. A voracious reader, when she needed punishment as a child her parents took her books away. These punishments were blessings in disguise – with nothing to read, she created her own stories.

Pursuing this life-long obsession, she studied literature in university, attaining both a BA and MA in English. Still craving more, she attained a degree in Journalism. After travelling the globe for several years and working as a freelance writer, editor, and facilitator she decided the time had come to focus on her true love – novel writing.

Charlene’s focus is to write stories full of thought and heart. They may not always end happy, but they’ll always end with hope.

Charlene lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland and loves exploring the amazing coastline of her harbour town, dancing up a storm, and using her husband as a guinea pig for the healthy, yummy recipes she creates!
