Celia Middleton sacrificed nearly everything to become the wealthy matriarch of her family and the proud owner of Whispering Pines. After everything she's been through, does she have the strength to hold on to it all?
Celia overcame rampant discrimination by proving herself, time and again, to build the unique life she envisioned. Now retirement will bring her the freedom to finally relax and have fun at Whispering Pines again . . . unless haunting memories threaten that dream, too.
Old friends know best, so when one of her dearests suggests it's time for Celia to walk away from Whispering Pines, she's afraid the woman might be right. She used to fantasize about seeing the world. Should she let the resort go and travel instead, while she's still young enough to enjoy it?
Every choice comes with a cost.
Celia will have to fight to keep her heart open through the hurt and loss that comes with aging. She may grow old alone, but she refuses to be lonely. She's learned valuable lessons along the way, and her family needs her hard-earned wisdom more than ever. Can she help her precious nieces and nephew—Renee, Jess, Ethan, and Val—avoid the regrets that tarnish her golden years?
This sixth book in Kimberly Diede's uplifting family saga will take you along on Celia's final journey as she battles to protect her legacy so it can serve generations to come.
