A Turn in the Road

Title: A Turn in the Road
Pub Date:4/26/2011
Author: Debbie Macomber
Received From : Library

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. Maybe even hopeful.
Bethanne herself needs time to reflect, to ponder a decision she has to make. Her ex-husband, Grant—her children's father—wants to reconcile now that his second marriage has failed. Bethanne's considering it….
Meanwhile, Annie's 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. Or lead you to an unexpected encounter—like the day Bethanne meets a man named Max who really is a hero on a Harley. That's when Bethanne's decision becomes a lot harder. Because Grant wants her back, but now there's Max….
From Seattle's Blossom Street to the other end of the country, this is a trip that could change three women's lives.

As a mother and a daughter and a daughter-in-law I found myself wrapped up in each one of the three characters in this book. I reflected back on my younger days while following the life of Annie. I wondered what my life would be like if I were Bethanne, and I imagined the anticipation of the journey for Ruth.The relationships that change and grow in this book are lighthearted and fun while intense and deep at different times. I spent the whole two days i read this pulling for different men based on the piece of the story I knew.

 I have been a lover of Debbie Macombers books since I first found Blossom Street. A turn in the Road just like all other Macomber books I've read, pull me in, entertain me and lighten my heart! What's not to love? I would suggest if you've never read from this author you grab this book and enjoy!
