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

Re: A Turn In The Road
Debbie Macomber used to be my favorite author, but in recent years she's been replaced by others like Susan Mallery, Sherryl Woods, Susan Wiggs, and Robyn Carr...however with a Turn In The Road Ms. Macomber has again become a favorite.
I loved that she took three generations of women and allowed them time away from their families to focus on their own needs and personal growth.
As I read I could see how each woman's history even though so very different affected their presents, and how those presents were viewed through different perspectives gave hope for happy futures.
I believe that A Turn in The Road was one of the books that I've enjoyed the most this year.
