“What would happen if I just kept driving?”
Moms aren’t supposed to have a life of their own, at least that’s what Becca Thompson believes. Between dealing with her youngest’s never ending tantrums, her teenager’s attitude and her ailing father’s rapidly failing memory, Becca doesn’t have time to worry about who she used to be.
Deep down, Becca knows she wants more than the daily chaos and the quick fixes her self-help books have to offer, but when her husband starts demanding more, the pressure proves to be too much. On the way to pick up her daughter, she makes the split second decision to take a different exit off the freeway and drives towards the mountains leaving her crumbling life in the rear-view mirror.
Fleeing to a remote mountain town, Becca knows she must rediscover her spirit, even if reconnecting with herself comes at the expense of everything she left behind.

A totally relatable story of how being a mother does change all women! We should all be able to escape & find our former selves.
I’m amazed that you were able to put into words what this young mother experienced. I’ve walked in her shoes but my story didn’t end as good as hers. I just remember feeling all her emotions. I liked her ending better. Thanks G
Good read for stressed mom
I read this book In about three days, I really couldn’t stop. I needed this read, it found me at the perfect time. I found the main character super relatable personally due to similar circumstances in my lifetime.
