In the middle of the year, in the middle of her life, 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 to reconnect with Royce, the love of her teenage life. She’s heard he’s alone, too…and, well, she’s curious. Maybe even hopeful. Bethanne herself needs time to reflect, to ponder a decision she has to make. Her ex-husband, Grant – her children’s father – wants to reconcile now that his second marriage has failed. Bethanne’s considering it….
Meanwhile, Annie’s out to prove to her one-time boyfriend that she can live a brilliant life without him! So there they are, three women driving across America. They have their maps and their directions – but even the best-planned journey can take you to a turn in the road.
Pay another visit to Blossom Street.

Debbie Macomber weaves another wonderful, realistic tale! The characters are so well developed, I feel like they are real people known to me ... each of them with both good and bad traits.
Excellent Book really gets you involved in the story of the three main women in this book and leaves you thinking about the book for a long time after you have finished it.
It ranks pretty high.It is what I would call easy listening the story was one I could relate to because I went through a similar thing.
When she made her decision. I was sort of on pins and needles waiting for her to realize that sometimes you do need to move forward.
I wouldn't got to feel the emotions in the story line. I was relaxed and able to put myself in the character place.
Yes it is . i must say it did start out a little slow. I however really got into toward the middle and the end.
I truly enjoyed the travel with Ruth, Bethann and Anne cross country! Each stop along the way brought me a longing for a return to places long ago visited. The new people that they met were interesting individuals with their own storylines and histories. With each chapter of the book I was cheering for Max and Royce and a subdued hope that Maybe Bethann would return to her husband. I couldn't stop listening, I enjoy books that keep my intrest piqued!
The Blossom Street series is an easy, fun read.
Bethanne was my favorite character because she showed the strength needed to raise teenagers as a single mom and to rewrite her own life and open her own business.
I love audio books. I am an avid reader/listener in my car and sometimes I just sit in a park or pool and let the escape begin with Audible
Yes but not as a stand alone. This entire series is well worth the listen.

I got into the story and you could feel for all of the characters
Great book and great series.
Normally I enjoy Macomber. I listen to books while at work and find her books relaxing and entertaining. I especially love the characters in this series. They feel familiar, almost like family. But like family they are becoming predictable.
Possibly. It's ALWAYS love, lose, love again even better than the first time. Does that really happen?
I thought Joyce Beans performance was good. It's made it curious as to how these books are done. Does the reader do all the characters at was and then the editor put them together? The character voices are always spot on. You know...John always sounds like John and Grandma always sounds like Grandma.
