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 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.

This book is magic.
I have recommended this book to all my reading friends.
Cecilia, because she was so real. You just knew she loved herself and therefore was able to love others.
No I haven't, but I will.
All of the women together experience what a woman's life really is.
I usually never reread a book. There is just too much out there for that kind of redundancy. I have read this book twice and listened to it four times if not more. I am listening to it now. It is like looking at a beautiful quilt and seeing yet something else to be admired about the whole.

I loved the book and the friendships of the women
