"Cecilia Ross is looking for a change. She has decided to take time off from her job as a successful motivational speaker and sell her home. She moves in to a beautiful old house in St. Paul, Minnesota, complete with a big front porch, a wild garden, a chef's kitchen--and three roommates. The four women are different ages, but all are feeling restless, and want to take a roadtrip to find again the people and things they miss. One woman wants to connect with a daughter she gave away at birth; another wants to visit her long-absent ex-husband; a third woman, a professional chef, is seeking new inspiration from the restaurants along the way. And Cecilia is looking for Dennis Halsinger, the man she never got over, who recently sent her a postcard out of the blue. This novel is classic Elizabeth Berg--a portrait of how women grow through the relationships that define them, and a testament to the power of female friendship"-- Provided by publisher.

A good "summer read". It won't blow your mind but it will keep your interest. Move your chair into the sun, get a cold drink and enjoy.

Shallow tale. Weak backstory. Two-dimensional characters. Predictable, sugary plot.

I've enjoyed each and every Elizabeth Berg book I've ever read and this one is no exception. When Cece's best friend dies of cancer, it makes her re-evaluate her life. Deciding to sell her house, she moves into a home which she shares with three other women who quickly become her friends. Each woman has unresolved issues and there is a satisfying end.

Perhaps it is the timing of reading this book with the events in my life that have made this such a good read for me. It's been awhile since I read any of Elizabeth Berg's books. I saw her in person years ago at a local library in Illinois, as she talked and read to us. As I embark on a new journey alone after many years in a new state, this book spoke to my heart. I loved the women she developed, all strong yet vulnerable, and the friendships that developed. I loved the road trip and the eclectic places they visited. I loved the evolving of relationships, both new and old. Perhaps one needs to be at a certain stage in their life to appreciate this book more fully, as I am in mine. The book spoke to my heart.

Lovely and soothing chick lit for chicks who are in their 40s or older. I had almost given up on Elizabeth Berg, having been disappointed in her last 3 novels. Her best book is True to Form (2002). This latest novel does not reach the same literary heights by any means, but it is a satisfying and pleasant read.
