Book Review – A Turn in the Road

I’m a big fan of Debbie Macomber’s and have enjoyed every one of her books. A Turn in the Road was a story I couldn’t put down.

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.

  1. I, too, love road trips. And this book sounds like the perfect one to take along on one. I have a mini-trip coming up, but have a Kristin Hannah story I’m holding off reading until them. Otherwise, I’d be out searching for this book now. I’ll add it to my must-read list, though. Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. Thank you I’ll pick that bbok up tomorrow. I need some down time.

  3. Another one for the TBR list! I love the premise of this.

  4. WOW. Sounds like a great read. Thanks for adding to my TBR pile that never ends!
