Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts and Washington Post best seller.

The worst of times calls for the best of friends in this sassy novel about starting over, from New York Times best-selling author Carolyn Brown.

Dear friends and army wives Diana, Carmen, and Joanie have been through war, rumors of war, marital problems, motherhood, fears, joy, and heartache. But none of the women are prepared when their daughters decide to enlist in the army together. Facing an empty nest won’t be easy. Especially for Carmen. With emotions already high, she suffers an even greater blow: divorce papers. Diana understands the fury and tears. She’s been there.

With nothing to lose and no one at home, the girlfriends impulsively accept an unexpected offer from their elderly neighbor. The recently widowed Tootsie has an RV, a handsome nephew at the wheel, and an aim for tiny Scrap, Texas, to embrace memories of her late husband. Still grieving, she can use the company as a balm for her broken heart. So can the empty nesters.

Embarking on a journey of hope, romance, and healing, Diana, Carmen, and Joanie are at a turning point in their lives. And with the open road ahead of them, it’s just the beginning.

Okay for fluff

If you're looking to keep your brain distracted from whatever ails you, it was a cute story.

Friendships

Between children leaving home, couples divorcing, military wives and disrupted families, the author takes you on a journey and travels that being four women together at this stage in their lives. I don't want to say anymore or give the story away, it is definitely a "must.read" if you find yourself alone after your children have left home, your spouse has passed away or you no longer have a partner in your life.

Enjoyable.

I did like the storyline, and it flowed well. The performance was okay, but just fell a little flat with the multiple characters, especially Luke.

Simple and entertaining story

The narrator was great. The story even though entertaining was very predictable. I enjoyed it.

This book has it all

Laughter, tears, anger, resentment, grief but most of all it has love. Mother- daughter love, old love and new love, but most of all the love of friends so close that they become family.
