A Turn In The Road by Debbie Macomber

Even though this is suggested as a knitting related book, there is very little knitting that happens.  This is a book about 3 women that travel from Seattle, WA to Vero Beach, FL.  The story was told so well I felt as though I was traveling with them and fortunately they were 3 women whose company I enjoyed.

In the middle of the year, in the middle of her life, Bethanne Hamlin takes a road trip with her daughter, Annie, and her former mother-in-law, Ruth.

They're driving to Florida for Ruth's 50th high-school reunion. A longtime widow, Ruth would like to reconnect with Royce, the love of her teenage life. She's heard he's alone, too…and, well, she's curious.

Bethanne's ex-husband, Grant—her children's father—divorced her when he fell in love with a younger woman.  He wants to reconcile now that his second marriage has failed. Bethanne is considering it - which really bothered me, but it's her life.

Annie, a young 20 something, is out to prove to her onetime boyfriend that she can live a brilliant life without him!

So there they are, three women driving across America. They have their maps and their directions—but even the best-planned journey can take you to a turn in the road.

Go with them, it's a great adventure!
