Publisher's Summary

As three generations of women navigate the uncertain paths of their hearts and futures, one summer promises to bring change - whether they’re ready for it or not.

At 38, garden shop owner Jessie McBride thinks her chances for romance are years behind her, and after her failed marriage, she’s fine with that. She lives contentedly with her fiery mother and her quiet, headstrong daughter. But the unexpected arrival of two men on Glory Road make her question if she’s really happy with the status quo. Handsome, wealthy Sumner Tate asks her to arrange flowers for his daughter’s wedding, and Jessie finds herself drawn to his continued attention. And Ben Bradley, her lingering what-could-have-been from high school days who’s known her better than anyone and whom she hasn’t seen in years, moves back to the red dirt road. Jessie finds her heart being pulled in directions she never expected.

Meanwhile, Jessie’s 14-year-old daughter, Evan, is approaching the start of high school and trying to navigate a new world of identity and emotions - particularly as they relate to the cute new guy who’s moved in just down the road. At the same time, Jessie’s mother, Gus, increasingly finds herself forgetful and faces a potentially frightening future.

In one summer, everything will change. But for these three strong Southern women, the roots they’ve planted on Glory Road will give life to the adventures waiting just around the curve.

Southern Generations. Writing to get lost in.

Lauren Denton writes about the small southern towns I grew up in. Her writing is easy to read and easy to get lost in. Above all she writes such kind stories that honor generations of family and of women. Devon O'Day is fantastic and is a perfect match for these stories.

Thoroughly Enjoyed

There was a lot to like about this book. It was well-written and each character had their own voice/story. I wanted the best for each of them. It felt realistic and made me think of my childhood on the farm.
