Cecilia Ross is looking for a change. She has decided to take time off from her job as a successful motivational speaker and sell her home. She moves in to a beautiful old house in St. Paul, Minnesota, complete with a big front porch, a wild garden, a chef's kitchen - and three roommates. The four women are different ages, but all are feeling restless, and want to take a roadtrip to find the people and things they miss. One woman wants to connect with a daughter she gave away at birth; another wants to visit her long-absent ex-husband; a third woman, a professional chef, is seeking new inspiration from the restaurants along the way. And Cecilia is looking for Dennis Halsinger, the man she never got over, who recently sent her a postcard out of the blue. This novel is classic Elizabeth Berg - a portrait of how women grow through the relationships that define them, and a testament to the power of female friendship.

I have recommended this book to all my reading friends.
Cecilia, because she was so real. You just knew she loved herself and therefore was able to love others.
No I haven't, but I will.
All of the women together experience what a woman's life really is.
I usually never reread a book. There is just too much out there for that kind of redundancy. I have read this book twice and listened to it four times if not more. I am listening to it now. It is like looking at a beautiful quilt and seeing yet something else to be admired about the whole.
I wish the book had gone on and on until I found out about how all the characters were doing. It was a book that made me want to go on a road trip.
I have a 3 hour commute to work every day so I listen to audiobooks to help with my drive. It's added some happiness to my day (if it's a good book)!
Yes, Berg has always been a go- to author for me.
Yes, her books don't always leave me breathless, but they are solid for entertaining me.
Yes, but her voice is older than I picture the characters in my head.
No, I think she summed them up.
