About the Book:
Two women from two very different generations are brought together by life’s messes and help each other to forge new paths. Twenty-six-year-old Erin has everything she’s ever wanted – a good job, a gorgeous fiancé and a best friend who’s always there for her. But suddenly her life comes crashing down around her. Unable to return home to her parents, she takes a room in a house nearby and her life starts over in the most unexpected of ways. Seventy-six-year old Lydia, who, shocked by the sudden death of her husband, is devastated to discover that he has left her in crippling debt. With no choice but to take in a lodger, Erin comes into her life. When they find a letter hidden in the attic old secrets come to light and, with Erin by her side, Lydia finds herself going on a trip of a lifetime.

Abby Williams is a wonderful story teller. Her writing caused a lot of emotions, sometimes it was sorrow or love and other times I wanted nothing more than shake some sense into the characters. Her portrayal of the cast of characters in this book was so compelling that the contrariness of each came into the forefront. She showed both ends of the spectrum in this story. Her writing of emotions were making me feel love, anger, tears, sadness, frustration, and resignation.

This book taught me some important things, namely you're never too old to try new things and you're never too young to share knowledge and wisdom. This beautiful parable of a story speaks to us all, about the consequences of our life decisions, and their impact on those we love. Beautifully written, at times heart wrenching. I really enjoyed getting to know the main characters in this book. Read the book, if you will, for the beautiful emotions with friendship and love galore.

Thank you NetGalley, Abby Williams, Head of Zeus & Aria for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
