Life has given Mabel worldwide fame as an acclaimed singer while robbing her of many precious things. After losing both her daughter and her granddaughter, Priscilla, her great-granddaughter, remains her only blood relation. Every day, Mabel feels her old age in her tangled hair, innumerable wrinkles, and aching joints. Priscilla, worried about Grammy May’s health, prays to God to make her young again. Little does she know that wishes often come true and bring their own challenges with them. Young Again, a novel by Don Trowden and Valerie McKee, chronicles the unforgettable week the duo spends.

Young Again was a delightful read full of music, magic, romance, and humor. However, it also offered a brand-new perspective on life. How many times in our youth have we prayed that we had the necessary hindsight and experience to save us from heartbreaks and regrets? How often, during our worn-out old age, have we longed for the youthful exuberance we once possessed? Don Trowden and Valerie McKee showed us exactly how life would be if we could somehow converge the two. A second chance at youth with all the wisdom intact could grant us a unique opportunity to right some wrongs and avoid some mistakes. Yet, a meddlesome neighbor and an over-enthusiastic journalist turned the story into a comedy. Romantic advances from a handsome doctor further complicated the scene, providing no shortage of hilarious incidents. I loved how Mabel used her experience to nudge others toward fulfilling their goals. Her golden touch seemed to change everyone’s life for the better. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who needs a thought-provoking yet uplifting story.
