Once again, Debbie Macomber has written a wonderful story! The ultimate road trip, where Ruth originally had everything carefully planned when she was going to make that cross-country trip by herself, but add her ex-daughter-in-law and grown granddaughter, there's spontaneity and adventure at every stop. Thanks so much, Debbie.

I began reading this series by Debbie Macomber because I enjoy fiction about Seattle. The books are engaging, the characters seem like friends I would enjoy. This book leaves Seattle on a road trip across the US but leaves us understanding that you are never really far from home.

the characters go on a trip across United States and back there is a little yarn at the beginning the main character picks up at the yarn shop but delightful read

As usual, another great book by Debbie Macomber! There's laughter, tears, frustration, love and a happy ending.

Three generations of women Bethanne Hamlin, her daughter Annie, and her former mother-in-law Ruth take a trip across the country to Ruth’s 50th high school reunion. There are lots of stories and situations including love stories that evolve. Excellent story about how the women bond closer and enjoy each others' company.

Bethanne Hamlin takes a road trip with her daughter, Annie, and her former mother-in-law, Ruth. They're driving to Florida for Ruth's 50th high school reunion. A long-time widow, Ruth would like very much to reconnect with Royce, the love of her youth. Bethanne's ex-husband, Grant, would like to reconcile, so she also has a major life decision to consider. And Annie is out to prove to her onetime boyfriend that she can live a brilliant life without him. But even the best-laid plans can take an unexpected turn-- or even be completely derailed.
