Before We Say Goodbye

By Toshikazu Kawaguchi
Before We Say Goodbye by Toshikazu Kawaguchi digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

The fourth novel in the internationally bestselling Before the Coffee Gets Cold Series

The regulars at the magical Café Funiculi Funicula are well acquainted with its famous legend and extraordinary time-travel offer. Many patrons have reunited with old flames, made amends with estranged family and visited loved ones. But the journey is not without risks, and there are rules to follow. 

In the tradition of Toshikazu Kawaguchi’s sensational Before the Coffee Gets Cold Series, readers will once again be introduced to a new set of visitors: the husband with something important left to say; the woman who couldn't bid her dog farewell; the woman who couldn't answer a proposal; and the daughter who drove her father away.

Featuring signature heartwarming characters and wistful storytelling, in the beautifully haunting Before We Say Goodbye, Kawaguchi asks: Who would you visit if you could travel through time?

“I was a little confused at first when I started the book thinking we started where we left off from the previous book. But it seemed like we went back to somewhere in between the first and second book which isn’t much of a problem. I still loved the stories. I think not as much as others because it wasn’t related to the people we built a connection with but they were still enjoyable and heart-warming.”
