Three women at different times of their lives set out on a cross-country road trip.
It starts when Ruth the grandmother and ex-daughter-in-law is finally going to realize a dream and drive cross-country from Seattle to Florida to attend her 50th High School reunion. A widow, she is secretly hoping to reconnect with her first teen age love.
Divorced six years Bethune Hamlin has a successful business and is happy with her life. It was a struggle, as she didn’t see it coming. One minute she was a life partner, stay at home mom and the next single, and struggling to keep the family home. Now both of her children are grown, her son getting married and her daughter having ups and downs with her long time boy friend. When Bethanne’s ex wants to reconcile she has some serious thinking to do and decides to accompany Ruth, her ex-mother-in-law on her road trip.
Annie, Bethanne’s daughter had an eye opener when her long time boy friend takes off for Europe with no forewarning. She’s out to prove to him that she can have a great life without him. And, on the spur of the moment decides to join her mother and grandmother on their trip. Thus completing the three-generation trio.
They have maps and plans but take detours that lead them into the unexpected and for Bethanne, to a man named Max.
This is a story where you feel like you’re in the car with these three women. Certainly Bethanne and Ruth fall out of their comfort zones. I love road trips and reading A Turn in the Road was the next best thing to being on one.
