About the Book

If You Come Softly and Behind You: Two Companion Novels

Sometimes, love outlives us…


Miah is black and Ellie is white. But that doesn’t matter to
them. All they want is to be together.


But then, on one tragic, fateful night, Ellie and Miah are
separated forever. Now each is trying to figure out how to move on
--- without the other.


In a wonderfully moving love story evocative of ROMEO AND JULIET,
Jacqueline Woodson has created two heartbreaking, interconnected
tales that beautifully capture the undying power of first
love.
