Somebody Like You: A Novel

By Beth K. Vogt


Can a young widow find love again with her husband’s reflection? Haley’s three-year marriage to Sam, an army medic, ends tragically when he’s killed in Afghanistan. Her attempts to create a new life for herself are ambushed when she arrives home one evening—and finds her husband waiting for her. Did the military make an unimaginable mistake when they told her Sam was killed? Too late to make things right with his estranged twin brother, Stephen discovers Sam never told Haley about him. As Haley and Stephen navigate their fragile relation­ship, they are inexorably drawn to each other. How can they honor the memory of a man whose death brought them together—and whose ghost could drive them apart? Somebody Like You is a beautifully rendered, affecting novel, reminding us that while we can’t change the past, we have the choice to change the future and start anew.

Book Takeaway:

The Story Question in Somebody Like You is: Is it ever wrong to love someone?

Why the author wrote this book:

I am a twin -- I have a fraternal twin sister -- and I've always wanted to write a novel with twins in the plot line. My husband was also in the military for 24 years, and several friends were widowed at young ages. I wanted to address these issues in Somebody Like You.
