Saphora has a successful life; but she’s had enough of her husband’s running around on her and decides to leave. She’sstoped by her husband’s announcement that he has cancer and now that he is sick he wants her to take care of him. He wants to go to their home on the beach at the Outer Banks in North Carolins. Saphora is a beautiful woman even though she is a mother of grown children and a grandmother, she finds herself overrun with children and grandchildren while she is trying to take care of her doctor husband.

I really enjoyed this book because it takes place in the state next to me as I live in South Carolina. I also enjoyed reading a love story about an older woman who is at a crossroads in her life. I am older than Saphora is in this book but I feel as though we could be friends as we have a lot in common, except the doctor husband mine was a welder before he retired, and we don't own a second home on the beach, just one little one midstate where it gets so hot and humid in the summer. It seems as most books are written about a young slim beautiful woman and the authors seen to forget that we older women need love and romance also.Saphora is a woman that likes to know what is going on and does not mind sticking her nose in her neighbor's business.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
