Publisher's Summary

Wynn Jeffries has wanderlust. Unfortunately, her life stalled somewhere between graduating from college and slinging drinks at the local dive bar. Stuck in a one-room apartment with no career, no boyfriend, no...life, she dreams of something more. Something amazing. Something like Oliver Reeves, her high school crush, who's back in town and reminding Wynn of the way she used to be.

When a forgotten news clipping falls out of a book belonging to Wynn's grandmother, a well-kept family secret is finally revealed. Is Wynn's gypsy spirit the result of an overactive imagination, or did she inherit it from a woman so determined to live a big life, she gave up everything to have it?

Together, Wynn and Oliver attempt to put together the missing pieces of her family's past and unravel the mystery behind her great-grandmother's disappearance. But after so much time succumbing to fear and regret, can Wynn ditch her safe, routine life for the chance at an extraordinary future?

Couldn't stop listening!

The story itself is beautiful, I never thought I could enjoy an audio book as much as I did. Excellent reading paired with a beautiful story and I'm sad that it has come to an end.

Thought Provoking

The message in the story truly spoke volumes to me personally about living MY life vs trying to shape my life to only please others.

You need to hear this story

Words cannot even describe how amazing this story is. Be brave, take chances. Life is a risk for all of us. It is how we chose to live our lives that defines us, not necessarily what it's filled with.

Live, laugh, love, experience, cry, rage, Be brave. Sacrifice for others without losing yourself.

I absolutely LOVED the narrator of this book. She did an amazing job of bringing the story to life and giving it emotion. Just fantastic.

Just couldn't connect

What could Emily Hemmer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I thought the main character whined too much and I simply couldn't relate to her.

amazing!

I read the book and it hit something in me. It made me think of my grandmother and the life she had. I bought the audio version the day I found out it was available. all I can say is it does not disappoint!! It takes you on a lovely journey of self discovery.
