Don Trowden and Valerie McKee Release New Novel - Young Again

NEW YORK - May 15, 2022 - PRLog -- 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.
