"The national bestselling author of The Accidental Book Club shares a novel of four ordinary women rediscovering themselves and their futures at the most unexpected time... Karen Freeman, Melinda Crocker, and Joanna Chambers have never met-but every morning they get their coffee at the Tea Rose Diner. Karen stops in on her way to the office job she's held for more than twenty years, wondering how her sweet-faced boy turned into a misguided young man. EMT Melinda fuels up for her days helping others, after nights spent worrying her fear of having children could drive her husband away. And Joanna, with her long blonde hair and bohemian flair, digs into the Boston cream pie and hides-from her friends, from her family, and most importantly, from herself. Their paths may have never crossed. But one morning, on the lawn of the Tea Rose, the three women collide during a searing event in the life of twenty-something Maddie Routh. In the nine months that follow, they return to the spot over and over. To discover what it means to be a mother, a wife, a lover, a friend. To find Maddie Routh. And to find themselves. Despite the challenges they've faced, these four women unite to show us second chances do exist, if only we have the courage to see them. "-- Provided by publisher.
"Karen, Melinda, and Joanna had never met until the morning they witness an accident outside a local diner--and rush to help. As a single mom whose sweet-faced boy has become a misguided young man, Karen immediately sets aside her own concerns and springs into action. Emergency first responder Melinda also calmly steps up to the plate, as she does every day; no one would ever suspect the insecurity that threatens her marriage to the man she loves. And blond, beautiful, bohemian Joanna is hiding--from her friends, her family, and, most important, herself. Yet she's first on the scene. The accident leaves another mother-to-be, Maddie, crushed by grief. But rather than retreat, Karen, Melinda, and Joanna open their arms and hearts. During the next nine months they'll return to the diner over and over. They'll come to find Maddie. They'll end up finding themselves--learning what it means to be a mother, lover, wife, and friend. By reaching out and holding on, these four women will unite to show us life can be transformed at the most surprising moments"-- Provided by publisher.
